just recieved our order at home. Cantonese Chow Mein 13,79 is now filled with small spaghetti noodles, not large egg noodles, dish is 1inch smaller, the Chinese style beef steak with onions had 6 pcs flat beef and filled with onions, should read "onions with a little beef 11.99 for onions., What a waste of 50.00. Never again.

Every year, my husband and I visit our married son who lives in Toronto. Our visit always includes a trip to the Mandarin Restaurant, because we love it so much. We tried a couple of different locations, but we favor the Queensway location the best. They are a little smaller, but we think the food here is just a little... More

My only regret at Mandarin is not having a second stomach. Place is clean, food is good, service is fast. No complaints about this location. Love Mandarin... it's my go to when I have no idea of what to eat.

Took my family here to celebrate a University graduation.

HOWEVER, TODAY I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED TO BE WRONG ABOUT IT. The service was great, the staff was kind and helpful beyond expectations,... More

Nice food variety but the deserts is very poor, cheese cake taste weird not rich as real cheese cake. For all the times i had been there Never found nice vanilla cake and those tiny pieces of cake taste like Sponge. I hope they improve the quality because I like going there.

I've been to a lot of buffets over the years. Outside of the $40-100 buffets in Las Vegas this tops them all! Firstly the décor is serene, cool colors with a very natural atmosphere. The staff is very, very attentive . But the best is yet to come, the food. The selection is oriental, continental and canadian/American. The hot items... More

If you like buffets, you'll love this place as it's as good as they get for selection and service. Amazing dessert section as well.
