We say…

Mandarin Buffet is dedicated to fine buffet dining, and can be found in Weston Favell, just outside of Northampton. It’s located next to the main Weston Favell shopping centre, so once you’ve shopped and want somewhere to refuel it’s in the perfect spot. If you want to drive here, it’s just down the A43 so is easily accessible from all over Northamptonshire.

The restaurant is stylish and striking, with chic black lacquer furniture and gorgeous Oriental light fixtures which nods to the Asian heritage of the food subtly. The buffet is served on no ordinary heated trolley, but is served in a real life-sized boat that is the star feature of the dining space. The owners state that this boat represents prosperity and success in their culture, as well as looking beautiful, so this buffet restaurant is clearly a cut above the rest.

The dishes vary depending on the day and local produce, but you can always expect to find great options here for everyone. To start with, pile your plate high with crispy aromatic duck with pancakes, spring onions and a rich Hoi Sin sauce. There’s also sesame prawn toast, salt and pepper chicken wings and deep-fried wontons to tempt you, but if you want to take a breather then go for the fragrant hot and sour soup. For your main dish, go for sea bass or Thai-style mussels for a fishy option, or treat yourself to roast pork in honey sauce. If you’re after a vegetarian option, the broccoli and cauliflower in coconut sauce is always a favourite, as well as the mushrooms is a delicate oyster sauce. The noodles and rice are always topped up, and you can even visit the tappenyaki station where the chefs can show you their skills.

Mandarin Buffet near Northampton is one of the best restaurants on offer in the area, and is the perfect place to visit if you want lots of authentic, tasty food and a great atmosphere.
