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 altered for the area they serve, the old folks of Laguna Woods Village who grew up in the chop suey era of Chinese food in the U.S.
I've never had a bad meal here nor found a dish I didn't enjoy. Hot Dry Braised, Mongolian Lamb and the Hunan Lamb are my favorite meat dishes and I love the chow fun (foon) over the lo mein noodles.
The owners are also great too. They have been very accommodating when ever we've been there.
