Time to hit the buffet! This time it was a visit to the Mandarin Buffet and Grill in Redmond, WA for a birthday party. It was my husbands' grandma's birthday and we wanted to do something special and we wanted to be able to accommodate our large group. They have a party room we were able to reserve for a couple of hours. The space was just the right size and it seemed a little far from the other tables to give us that separation we needed. As for the food, the price seemed ok at twenty per person for dinner, in comparison to some other Asian buffets in the Seattle area. There was a nice selection of sushi, which I probably enjoyed the most out of everything. Some of the food was a miss though and luckily, the chocolate fountain saved the day and was the highlight for me and my sons. A chocolate fountain says celebration and how can you not be happy when you're dipping marshmallows and strawberries in chocolate? The service was just ok, as they didn't offer drink refills and they let our empty plates pile up. But in the end, everyone was happy and grandma had a really special birthday!
