Over the years our extended family has chosen the Mandarin Restaurant as a great place to "catch up" & eat up. Although not limited to Chinese food, they do that well- but their Chinese-Canadian cuisine, mixed with a little Indian [and a few other favorites...More

I hadn't been to this Mandarin for well over a year so thought we should give it a try again. Shouldn't have bothered. Way over priced and food was lack luster and poor. Chop Suey was like the frozen kind, unappetizing just looking at it....More

Nice all you can eat place, crab legs are so popular there. Food is nice for this kind of place. However, it is basic Asian food, which you can find everywhere.

I’ve never written a review for the Mandarin before because I figured everyone knows how good it is and how consistent the quality of the food and service is as well. We were there for lunch yesterday and I couldn’t believe how they’ve kicked the...More

It's a couple of years since I was last here but the choice, the quantity and the quality are still very good value for money. As a diabetic I particularly liked the option of sugar free cappuccino ice cream!
