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!

Not happy with food selections. There used to be crab legs, steamed muscles. Big disappointment. Just don’t think selections are what they used to be.

I have ordered delivery numerous times the bill always around $145.00 or so.
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. I am ordering again this week and don't want to be disappointed again!

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)
