    Mandarin offers at least a 10% discount for 65+.

    • Biff says:

      What the what is Mandarin? Is that some Chinese place in Leastern Bananada?

      • Deb says:

        Yes, Mandarin is a Chinese food buffet style restaurant. They are in various locations. I have gone to the one in London. I’m not generally a big fan of Chinese food but there was such a large selection of food to choose from that I enjoyed eating there. The food was delicious.
