Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

No MSG here. I go off menu all the time and make special requests (yes, I drive everyone nuts). Their staff never complains and gets my order right every time. They are very kind and helpful. Our food is always ready in 15-25 minutes too - even large orders. Absolutely delicious. Very fresh and high quality.

I have long given up on Chinese food because it has become Americanize gelatinous junk. Not of this restaurant!!! MANDERIN KING in Laguna Beach was absolutely wonderful... the authentic way that real Chinese food should be! Fresh, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. Family owned and operated since the 80s. With food this great, it is no wonder that they have lasted this long. We are only in the area for a week but will be back multiple times. We are very grateful to have found this hidden gem early in our vacay.

We usually stop by Mandarin King to eat whenever we find ourselves in Laguna. It's a nice comfortable place to eat. The food is very good and the prices reasonable. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

4 of us shared 4 menu items and we were all happy with the choices especially with the orange chicken. Not sickening sweet and gelatinous like many restaurants serve .

they had great tasting food and great choices for oriental cuisine (speaking as a Caucasian). I really enjoyed the house made chicken special and my husband had the house fried rice (there was seafood in it, yum!) we walked in less than an hour before they were due to close and they treated us great, no attitude because they were closing soon, and the food was hot and fresh. Very good.

It's a little hard to find on the side of PCH, but it was a tasty find! Eleven of us ate their for a family dinner and while we didn't have a reservation on a Sunday, they made room for us right away. The service was not only friendly, but fast! And the food was genuine and flavorful. We had House Chow Mein, Mongolian Beef (turned out to be one of our favorites), Garlic Shrimp, A seafood variety (can't remember the name, but the sauce was amazing and you can ask for less sauce if you want to save on calories) , Walnut Shrimp, Beef and Broccoli and Pork Lo Mein. There wasn't anything I didn't like and even the General's chicken, which is usually spicy, had a great kick that I could handle. Only reason I gave it four stars out of five is some of the portions were a little small for the cost - it's a little pricey -- and I wish it was a little bigger. But, we'll be back!

This is a tasty treat! We ordered family style and dined on orange chicken, shrimp with vegetables, chow mein, szechuan beef and chicken wrapped in foil—all were delicious!! Usually you have leftovers—but nothing was left after 9 of us devoured it all! This place is conveniently located on PCH in Laguna and has primarily street parking. It has been in this location at least 20 years! If you crave chinese food—check it out! Great service too! Our waiter took several family photos!

Food here was delicious and affordable too! We ordered the garlic chicken, Mongolian beef and sweet and sour shrimp and it was very difficult to decide which was our favorite. The appetizers were great too! We ordered paper chicken, egg rolls, wontons and potstickers PLUS sizzling rice soup. The total for all of this?$50!! And we had leftovers for tomorrow!

Any time we’re in Laguna Beach we visit Mandarin King. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the food is always good. The Potstickers are delicious and the Wonton soup is very good. I had pork noodles one night and they were delicious.

Mandarin King Chinese Food has been around for well over thirty-years in Laguna Beach. Locals continue to flock to this place for its authentic and delicious food, as well as the excellent attentive service provided by Glenn(Owner) and his outstanding long serving staff. A shout out to ALL the servers for their friendly, helpful, and prompt service. The busboy/runner Francisco is likewise a friendly, helpful, and attentive employee in support of the servers. The food is absolutely amazing and very reasonably priced for both lunch and dinner.

After eating mostly western dishes for most of our holidays, we needed to get back to our roots and have some Chinese food. The dishes are quite traditional and the menu quite diverse. The restaurant was able to accommodate my vegan no oil diet. The waitress was very attentive and cordial. She even asked if we spoke Mandarin. My wife speaks Mandarin and told her that I did not speak it. She subsequently spoke to me in English. The dishes were quite large and tasted very good.

had a lovely dinner here tonight. A casual and friendly restaurant with really friendly staff. The portions are too much for one person so i would recommend sharing. Great value for money!

If you are looking for good traditional Chinese food in Laguna- Mandarin King is a great place a few blocks north of town right on the PCH! Service was excellent and most of the food dishes were excellent, particularly the chicken dishes! Prices were very reasonable as well!
