Mandarin Canada: Seniors Get Half-Priced Buffet Tomorrow

Mandarin Canada: Seniors Get Half Priced Buffet Tomorrow

Tomorrow is Senior’s Day and Mandarin is celebrating by offering 50% off their lunch and dinner buffets on October 1st.

I recently read an article that said that seniors get all the perks, but they are richest people in our society. Apparently all of the perks they get were put in place because they were actually the poorest at one time and of course, we don’t want our seniors living in poverty. Today they say that young adults are the poorest and some people are lobbying to get the perks that seniors now get. I think we should all get the perks! But, living a life for 60+ years definitely deserves some rewards so I’m all for senior’s days and so is Mandarin.

It looks like you have to be 65 or more to get the discount and have valid ID. Funny, when you are young, you hope they don’t ask for ID, then at my age, you hope they do and then as you get older the cycle starts all over again!

I love Mandarin and my kids have been begging to go there lately. I definitely won’t be taking them anywhere near there tomorrow as my kids are loud and that seems to annoy some seniors, especially with hearing aids.

Mandarin has their Moon Festival on right now which means that their dinner buffet also has Peking duck, butternut squash soup, sweet and sour fish and more. I really only go for the seafood. If you don’t like any of that, there are over 150 items available on their buffet, so there really has to be something for everyone.

Prices for dinner on a weekday are $21.99, so seniors will get a full buffet for only $11! If you go for lunch, you’ll get the buffet for only $7.50. That’s awesome! Maybe its time to take your parent or grandparent out for a meal. It won’t cost you much!

Mandarin Canada: Free Buffet On Canada Day

Mandarin Canada: Free Buffet On Canada Day

Tomorrow, head on in to any Mandarin location and get yourself a free buffet dinner to celebrate Canada’s birthday!

To get your free meal, you must be a citizen of Canada and be able to provide proof with your birth certificate, passport or citizenship card. If your immediate family member works there, you are also out of luck, as these people are not eligible. You are going to have to wait in line to get in, as there are no reservations and from what I’ve seen in previous years, the line gets long. Everyone who is in your party must wait in the line, so this includes your rangy kids and your elderly grandmother. I’d suggest bringing fold-up chairs and electronic devices for the wait.

You can’t go in and fill up a take-out box either, you have to sit and eat there, which is totally cool, as you’ll get full-service including all non-alcoholic drinks free. Tips are not included so since you are getting this free and you know your server will be driven mad that day, leave them a nice big tip to thank them for working on such a nice day on our Canadian holiday.

I actually do like Mandarin although I have never taken my kids there except when one was in my belly at nine months pregnant and I absolutely had to have Chinese buffet. My kids love buffets with all their choices and this is a family-friendly restaurant.

Bargainmoosers, let me know in the comments below if you are going to brave the line-ups to get some free meals. Have you ever been to their Canada Day free buffet before and do you have any tips for others?
