We came based on reviews. Food was amazing. Great atmosphere. We ordered off the menu and had sesame chicken and Mongolian beaf. Some of the best we have ever had. Will definitely be back

It is awesome to finally find a great Chinese restaurant. I tried a big variety of things on the buffet and they were all delicious. This is way better than most buffets and definitely the best in the Opelika/Auburn area!

This has been a family favorite for years. The buffet is what they are most known for and it is certainly better than your typical "panda" and other cheap Americanized Chinese fast food which always boasts lots of sugar and fried flour to hide mystery chicken or some other curious meat. Mandarin buffet has real quality chicken, spicy Mongolian beef,... More

Hands down, this is the best Chinese in the area in my opinion. It's so good! I usually go when I can get the lunch buffet. I don't believe they offer the buffet at dinner anymore, bummer. The food is always good and fresh. I never feel like I am eating food that has been sitting under a heating lamp... More

When you go there it has a restraunt to the left with thai menu. This is where we eat. Love the soft shell scrab.

We have been coming to Mandarin House for decades. We always have a lovely meal with perfect service. We never have the buffet so can not speak to that. We had the Kung Pao chicken and Moo shu pork today with plain steamed rice. We had the hot sour soup for two as a starter. There were huge tender shrimp... More

Wow, since the last time I visited this place has been redone! Much much cleaner, nicer decor, fresher appearance. Buffet selection is reduced from what it used to be but the quality of the food was much higher than my last visit!

I often go there for lunch. The buffet has a lot of choices and the food is pretty good. The place is very clean - that's important to me in a Chinese restaurant. Prices are reasonable. What else would you want?

After searching for somewhere local for Thai.. I was told Mandarin house had Thai so I came to try out their Green Chicken Curry and Tom Kha Gai soup(first time visit). I also ordered crab angels based on the previous reviews. The soup came out first and was lacking in flavor immensely. It had bell pepper, green onion, mushrooms, and... More

Good foods at reasonable price. Interior looks nice and clean (much better than exterior). I only tried "Jja-Jang" noodle, but I can guess other dishes should also be good. A nice surprise in a small south town.
