Mandarin Buffet


Bait and Switch 8/11/2007

We have been regulars for lunch at The Mandarin Buffet for about a year. I'd say that the three of us (husband, wife and child) eat here about once every two months. We are a vegetarian family and do enjoy the variety of fruits, veggies and assorted fried foods they have to offer. We joke and say that we help them to make a profit to offset what seems to be a loss with the piles of crab legs that most people are eating when we are their! Tonight the boy and I wanted some dinner, so I called the Buffet to inquire about the price - $15.99 a person. I think the hostess noticed my hesitation concerning the price, so I mentioned we do not eat meat or fish and would not be attacking the crab and shrimp dishes. She said come on down and she would charge us the lunch price of $9.99 a person. Awesome! We get in the car and drive 20 minutes to the restaurant. I mention to her we had spoken on the phone and she regretted to inform me that the best she could do was give us 10% off. COME ON! I didn't really bother to argue with her, but I mentioned that I had drove 20 minutes to get their under the assumption that we had a deal. She was basically like "too bad, sucks for you" She did offer that she would give us 10% off. So, needless to say I won't be giving them our business from here on out. Kind of a shame, because I rather enjoyed the place. more
