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

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.
