Upon entry, you are made to feel welcome by the friendly staff. This restaurant is totally accessible. Dining rooms and washrooms are on street level - no steps or stairs anywhere and you can easily manoeuvre within the premises without issue. Food is delicious, fresh...and plentiful; items are replenished immediately. The salad bar offers a nice selection that could be a meal in itself. The menu, overall, accounts for a variety of tastes. Besides the main buffet, you will find speciality stations with all the trimmings including a roast beef station, along with sushi and pasta stations. You can finish your meal with a good variety of sweets, puddings, pies, cakes and ice-creams. I would repeat my experience here anytime and am looking forward to my next visit in May.More

Although I live close enough to walk to the Mandarin Restaurant in Pickering, I have not dined there in many years. I have, however, been to two of their locations in Markham earlier this year. The Pickering location is smaller than the Markham locations, giving...it an intimate feel. As usual, I started with soup and salad. I always enjoy a fresh salad and a good bowl of soup. Next up was the Prime Rib, medium rare, just the way I like it. I had it with mashed potatoes, onion rings, garlic bread, and a coupled slices of bacon. It was good enough to have seconds! Yummy! I also explored the other buffet stations and ended up sampling their fried rice, noodles, ribs, calamari and a couple other things. They were all good. I had no room left to explore their breakfast items, grilled foods, or sushi. I was stuffed! I did, however, manage to squeeze in some dessert, mostly fruits. It was a good finish to a good meal! I have to say, this Pickering location beats the Markham ones for service, and freshness of foods. Kudos to all the staff!More

Never have i received the promised FREE items, pot stickers or whatever, no soy sauce, no other sauce of any kind just fortune cookies and lots of them. I have even special...ordered soy sauce and plum sauce and not received any. Train your assembly staff to pay attention to the order and deliver what is expected.

Haven’t been to a Mandarin since before Covid so we decided to go to the Pickering location for out 31st Anniversary since we were staying at Pickering Casino Resort. Service was awesome. Food selection was good and seemed fine until I awoke at 2:35am with...food poisoning. Hubby is sleeping soundly and I am not as I am spending my night in the bathroom. The only item that I had that my husband didn’t was the chicken wings. I write this review at 4.28am, June 20th , my 31st wedding anniversary. We are supposed to head home to Barrie today for celebration plans with our kids but at this point I doubt I can travel so we may have to extend our stay while I rest if I can stay out of the bathroom long enough to rest. 🤦🏻‍♀️, thanks Mandarin Pickering (NOT)More

Before the pandemic, we got Mandarin take out quite often and always looked forward to it. We ordered take out tonight and it was absolutely horrible. The chicken balls were extremely doughy (sickening) with very little chicken in them. You could taste the unpleasant doughy...tase, but could not taste the chicken. We had one each and could not stomach more. The egg roles and spring roles also had very little filing - were not worth finishing. The chicken in the chow mein was very soggy and there was a fish taste to the chicken. We ended up throwing it out and having toast for our Valentine's dinner.More
