The meal is good, the service excellent. Though she was very busy, Nhi made sure that we were well looked after, filling up our water glasses when she saw they were getting low. Well Done Nhi !!

What can you say? Mandarin basically sets the standard for Chinese buffets in the area. They're consistently good at what they do, and they didn't fail on this visit either. Service was great, food variety exceptional, and all well done.

Our waiter took our drink orders and we went to grab food. When we returned the waiter came with our drink orders and proceeded to serve them. While serving the... More

This is a great place for Chinese. Actually my fave place for Chinese. I have been here with my husband, my parents, and my kiddies on numerous occasions. I love the food, the service and it's very clean. I like the bathrooms. And sometimes I splurge for a mommy drink ;)

If you are looking for a big buffet with a lot of variety, this is the place to go. Their specialty is Chinese food, but they have lots of other stuff as well. There is always something on the carving station- usually prime rib at dinner and a variety of things at lunch. Today it was corned beef. They have... More

We stopped for dinner on our way home. We were still an hour from home at mealtime. The food at the Mandarin is tasty and well presented. I generally try to avoid buffets because the food is often mushy and tasteless after sitting out in the buffet for too long. This is not the case at the Mandarin. The food... More
