great selection, everything is fresh & hot, It is the only buffet style restaurant I will even consider. they keep it clean and plentiful, nothing is questionable, which is not usually the case with buffets. They are always busy so it works well by nothing sitting out too long. even though they are busy the service is streamlined and I... More

If you looking for a vast selection of foods from American to Asian, then the Mandarin is a very good place to start. Once seated you have a huge selection to choose from, and there is no reason for anyone to go hungry. There is something for everyone there, and all of it very tasty. The price is reflects the...

This was my first visit to this location but I have been to other Mandarin restaurants. I found this to be similar to the others with a vast array of items to choose from. The service is attentive as always. And who doesn't like a hot towel before and after your meal. Nice touch!
