If you’re craving some Mandarin, good news: The restaurant chain will be reopening its locations soon, albeit without its famous buffet.

In a recent update, Mandarin Restaurants president James Chiu said the chain plans to launch Mandarin Small Eats at its Brampton location (located at Highway 410 south of Steeles) on Monday, August 17.

Mandarin Small Eats is described as a new dine-in concept for the chain, with dishes from a selection of 70 small plates of Mandarin classics being served right to your table.

Chiu says the dishes will be priced from $1.99 to $4.99 and good for sampling/sharing with others.

This new style of dine-in will also be present at Mandarin’s other locations, which are expected to reopen in the next weeks.

Mandarin restaurants have additionally introduced some new safety measures, including increased sanitization, single-use menus, and a reduced customer capacity at each restaurant.

“We ensure that your Mandarin experience will be enjoyable as well as safe and comfortable for you and your family,” Chiu said. “We continue to work with guidelines from the Ontario government and local public health authorities.”

Mandarin continues to be available for take-out and delivery.
