This is a family owned restaurant and has been in Laguna beach for along time. The place was remodeled last year...The food is still as good and service impeccable

Ordered takeaway and ordered the "special salad with chicken. Nothing "special" as it was only boiled chicken, and ordinary salad. Nothing else. And my brothers rice was cold. Sorry. Two stars for happy and helpful staff.

Mandarin King really surprised with unusually tasteless Chinese cooking; why so many favorable reviews? They were keen to get us seated in the busy restaurant, but from there onwards even the service went south.

My family of 6 enjoyed 3 dishes. With all the complimentary items, I am glad we did not order 1 meal each...we would have been taking a lot home. My kids loved their Special chicken and the Orange chicken.

This restaurant is a local favorite with fresh seafood dishes, friendly service and reasonable prices. Vegetarian egg rolls had lovely stuffing but were just a tad greasy. Broccoli in all dishes were cooked perfectly. Too often restaurant undertook broccoli. Don't miss this little gem.
