The Great Mandarin has been around for many years in EP. The food is consistent. My favorite is their lunch buffet. Always have a wide variety of dishes and they refill it often. Ordering off of the menu is an option, and have enjoyed many dinners out with friends and family.

Went here with my best friend for lunch. Had the buffet. Good food and excellent service. If you order a coca cola, it's more than likely pepsi they have. Spendy place to eat at.

Wonderful food and excellent service. You see the chefs preparing your order. The pan fried noodles are a favorite of ours and Tony (owner) is wonderful.

Very nice lunch buffet for $10. A wide selection of entrees. Buffet food was fresh and hot. Especially liked the fresh strawberries part of the cold salad buffet area. In the hot entrees my favorites were the egg rolls, chickens wings, the beef chow mein and the stirred fried spicy chicken. My husband raved about the egg drop and hot... More

Thought it was pricey. Waiter wasn't too friendly. Crab cheese were overdone. Could not order fried rice. No extras with meal. Lots of choices, but just average.

We went here for a lunch buffet recently and the variety of dishes was quite large with lots to choose from. Most of the typical selections are available you might expect. Since it's a buffet, you can get in and out for a good lunch in a short period. We've been here for dinner and eat off the menu and... More

We had been eating here nearly weekly some years ago. We finally got to eat here again recently after many years and I am thrilled to say that the food is as delicious as ever. We've had many of the dishes and they are all excellent. The service is very quick and the restaurant has a decent bar selection as... More
