This was a great surprise to us as we stumbled upon this restaurant after shopping next door. Wow...the food is really good here....if you get there before 6 p.m. you get early bird special...soup, egg roll, sweet and sour chicken...etc. The orange chicken is really good, steamed fish excellent....the down side is service is usually very slow and not enough...

I have been to this restaurant many many times and it's very disappointed. Fabulous food, a real value for your money and a full blown dinner with appetizers, soup and rice along with your main dish, complemented with fortune cookies and orange halves. I love the lo mein with beef, shrimp and chicken and the walnut shrimp which is fabulous.... More

The food was pretty average. I had the egg fu young, which wasn't typical egg fu young. They did have good specials and there was a lot of food for the price. The food could definitely use a bit more flavor.

This restaurant is a local Chinese restaurant which has been in the same local for more than the 16 years I have resided here. Yes; there have been several owners but the menu and everything seems to have remained the same. If you desire Chinese food locally without driving it is a good choice; the food is good the prices...

If you are getting take out for your folks in Laguna Woods or taking your great auntie out to Chinese lunch, Mandarin Terrace is more than adequate for Chinese food. No one is going to pretend that Mandarin Terrace will make you skip the great Chinese restaurants of Irvine, but it is good for the immediate area. The food is... More

Terrible place! Stay away! I ordered my food and told them i was highly allergic to mushrooms. They said no problem. When I picked up my food I waited for over 15 MINUTES before I was waiting on as the food sat on the counter getting cold. I told the man the food was cold he said it is find.... More

Very upsetting finding a staple on my food!. All the server had to say is sorry and walked away! Worst service I have ever experienced. Never going again.

We've been going here for about 15 years now, some of the best service of any restaurant in the Laguna Hills area. The food is above average. While the ownership may have changed the servers haven't and they often remember your unique details when ordering.

This is an excellent Chinese restaurant. Great food, some of them are east coast style, nice. Service is super. Gloria, the waitress is the best . Lunch special starts from $7,45, such a great value for a restaurant like this. Dine in, take out, and delivery, anyway you want. For sure, I will come back...
