Great food always hot and fresh. Lots of selection and they always are quick to refill. Very clean as well. Whenever I went to the bathroom there was a lady cleaning it.

The food was excellent. The service was so good. From entering the restaurant, the hostess were very nice and welcoming. We got our table very quickly. Our server came quickly and efficiently. She was amazing. Even the female Manager came around to say hello and talk to us! This is definitely the best Mandarin I have been to!

The mandarin is awesome for any occasion. The quality of the buffet is always so good. The service is usually ok and the restaurant is quite pricey. Lots of seating but reservations are highly recommended

The Mandarin is one of the few places in Barrie worth eating out. A little bit expensive but well worth it. The variety, freshness, and service far out ways any where else. Even the wait to get a table does not discourage me in the least. You will not be disappointed.

I've been to Mandarin a number of times. The service is always great. However, after being here a number of times it is pretty standard fare for getting "your feedbag on"! Really nothing special. There are better and worse places to be.

This is a franchise establishment. Always a good veriety. Always fresh. Always tasty. The service is really good. You never have to wait for a beverage to be freshoned up. Or a plate to be removed from the table. This place gets a thumbs up.

Wow! What a great selection of food! The server was very attentive and made sure that we had our beverages in quick order. We were given moist lemon-scented towels before we ate. There was so much to choose to eat that it was hard to make choices. The food was well-prepared, tasty, and hot. Loved everything I tasted; the vegetables... More
