Donny Zhao, managing partner of Mandarin, runs an amazing Buffet!!! No mater what kind of food you like, he has it displayed in all it's splendor on the very well presented buffet tables. If you can't find lots of food that you love, you haven't taken the time to look around carefully enough. The hot foods are hot, the warm... More

We would never think of going to a Chinese buffet but that was the choice of our guest celebrating her birthday. If you know how to choose (staying away from the deep fried and dough coated fare) you can actually eat very well here and for an excellent price/quality ratio. Service is very attentive and friendly and cleanliness outstanding (all... More

This is the largest and best Chinese Buffet in London.Huge and varied choices make it a popular place to eat. Alcohol is available While it is reasonably priced it is well worth the cost.

Food was ok but not great they have a large selection of dishes I found the staff weren't very helpful with regards to my food allergies. The afternoon buffet was reasonable whereas I felt the evening buffet not worth the money

I usually avoid chain restaurants but decided to give this Mandarin location a try for lunch on a busy Friday. The place was full of diners but the staff handled the flow very well. The food was all hot and fresh and very tasty. There is certainly enough selection of Asian and other dishes available. The property was very clean... More

By far the best food. A bit pricey but considering the value of what you get - it's not bad. My only complaint is that it is SO crowded, no matter what time you go, that it is difficult for us to maneuvre. Still one of my favorite restaurants.

This buffet is by far the best Chinese food buffet I have seen in London. Also a Canadian selection of dishes so there is truly something for everyone. Dessert bar to die for!

Visited the Mandarin Restaurant on a Thursday night, I would recommend you call ahead for a reservation. It was very busy. The staff certainly take care of you, and I had no complaints of the food, I loved the variety, and I love to pick things that I wouldn't generally make at home. It was certainly a treat!

Thank Yvonne T
