I can tell you right now it's $3.99 for only 3 chicken balls. Each person wanting a soup? $2.99 for each bowl of soup.Allen84 wrote: ↑ This might be a good deal if you go with around 5 people or more. As there is a more likelihood, a few people at the table will eat less than the others, making up the difference in cost in value of what you're eating than paying AYCE price.
- 1 or 2 people = ripoff
- 3 or 4 people = slight ripoff to break even
- 5+ people = might be worth it
- A group of overweight friends/family = Major ripoff

I dont find value in Mandarin for these prices. I can literally go anywhere for this type of pricing, so why go to Mandarin? Werent you the one who goes to Mandarin for their hidden steaks? Is it on the new menuplaynicee1 wrote: ↑ I can tell you right now it's $3.99 for only 3 chicken balls. Each person wanting a soup? $2.99 for each bowl of soup.
If you have a group of 6, that's one chicken ball each @ $7.98. $1.33 just for a chicken ball???
Maybe some of the other food will make up for a rather expensive chicken ball...?

Not really against what he said though. You can't compare now vs pre pandemic.

What they should do is maintain a flat rate price like what Dragon Pearl did.

Not sure where this as taken. There are many Mandarin throughout Ontario. The one on my area is not opening till after Labour Day. Many restaurants, of all types will be suffering and having a difficult time getting clients back.

My bad, was recalled from my hazy memory $4.99 it is. I guess this could be the new model of buffet in the present/future. I don't see the self-service buffet model reopening anytime soon.

I don't see it that way. I like to think Dragon Pearl is doing it correctly. No stress of counting plates or whatever. Just relax and enjoy a fixed price AYCE without ever having to get up from your seat.Pete_Coach wrote: ↑ Not sure where this as taken. There are many Mandarin throughout Ontario.

My point is, jokingly, that is will be like Tapas. Also, just by lessening the amount of spoilage, the profits should go up.

NO. Dragon Pearl doesn't charge per plate. They are one fixed price and they bring and bring plates to the table. It's the new AYCE...er, copying the Japanese AYCE's & others that have already done it this way for years.
