Had to blog quickly about this restaurant that now I’ve been to twice. Once for lunch with a friend when it just opened and once recently with 12+ people on a Saturday evening for supper. Reason I’m blogging is that I can’t understand the over-critical reviewers on the various sites that have given this Mandarin-competition a bad review and would even dare to say that the Mandarin is better.
Decor – First, decor is much better than Mandarin, lots of space around food, beautiful chandeliers, nicely laid out food, etc.
Service – I’ve never been impressed with Mandarin’s service. Having said that Wok of Fame is probably on par with Mandarin.
Food – Now if you want to compare every dish and see if one has more selection than the other, maybe Mandarin nudges out Wok of Fame only by popular numbers. As far as freshness and quality and variety, there’s no comparison! Sushi has lots of variety and sashimi for supper (Mandarin doesn’t even have real sushi ever). Teppanyaki and Wok stations are great! Steak, fish, seafood, vegetables (probably 4-5 types of mushrooms), very Mongolian Grill style food. Salad Bar, Hot Food Bar and Dessert Bar are all equal if not better than Mandarin.
Again, I don’t want anyone to stay away unnecessarily from this new offering in Brampton. Bramptonians don’t have much choice and shouldn’t complain because they don’t have to go to Toronto or Mississauga to find something comparable. It’s a little pricey but for the sushi and teppanyaki and Mongolian Grill, that’s almost three restaurants right there. To boot, all “cold” non-alcoholic drinks are included. They’ve added now a $1 charge for coffee and tea (assortment as well).
