Best Spaghetti Western CHINESE FOOD - NEW MANDARIN GARDEN Old Town San Clemente


THIS IS MY FAVORITE PLACE!

I have been eating at New Mandarin Garden since I was literally 5 years old, it's been around THAT long!! This is my all time favorite place to go out to eat in San Clemente when you want something casual, cheap and delicious! We will sometimes do their takeout too but I like the ambiance of the restaurant and you get free complimentary tea service :)

The staff is super friendly and they recently went thru an interior design upgrade. My favorite go to's are: Wonton Soup, House Special Chicken, Cilantro chicken (you can add green beans to either chicken dish and they are tasty), House special chow mein, house special fried rice...I'm not much of a seafood person but my fiancé and parents rave about their shrimp and fish dishes also. Honestly anything you order will be amazing! Support a local SC business and enjoy a wonderful me
String Bean Chicken


AMAZING SIZZLING PLATTER!

My boyfriend lives in San Clemente and we go here whenever we want good Chinese food. He likes to sit down, and i like the take out, either is great. We sat down this time and were really satisfied with the huge portions and display of food.

  He is a die hard for the sweet and sour soup, even bought it by the liters. So he got a family dinner with orange chicken that comes with the soup, egg roll, wonton, and rice for extra $5. I got the chicken chow mein, and sizzling three meat platter. We shared everything and had plenty for a meal the next day.

  The service was pretty quick, and very fresh, they werent lying about the platter sizzling. The orange chicken wasn't my favorite but definately satisfied my boyfriend. I loved the platter. There was plenty of shrimp and the brown sauce is super tasty. The chow mein was just as good, with super thick noodles that are oddly light at the same time. More...

PLEASANT SURPRISE!

Well, that was a pleasant surprise.  We wanted to try something new in San Clemente  and love chineese food so we looked on yelp and yet again,  excellent.

The most healthy prepared and fresh ingredients I have ever experienced in Chinese food. As if everything came straight from the garden to our plate.  The house special beef reminded me of a fresh cut, tender lamb.

The sauces are light and tasty, unlike other places that add a ton of starch.

Highly recommend

GREAT TAKE OUT!

We always get take out for the family and the food here is consistently delicious and always correct, even when we ask for "special" orders!

New Mandarin Garden is a KEEPER!”

We discovered New Mandarin Garden almost four years ago while we were on the search for a good local Chinese restaurant. We have been dining at the restaurant on a regular basis ever since. If you are looking for bad Chinese food that is doused heavily in corn-starched sauces, this is not the restaurant for you. However, if you are looking for well prepared Chinese food using quality ingredients, you have come to the right place!

New Mandarin Garden is consistently excellent. Dishes that I highly recommend are: Honey Walnut Shrimp, Sizzling Beef, Cilantro Chicken, House Special Chicken, Dry Braised String Beans. They also make a good Sweet & Sour Chicken if you like that dish. Services are attentive and are never rude. The owners always make you feel welcome and special. Prices are so reasonable that we almost feel guilty about it. We just had dinner there last night. For four adults and two children, our check came to $66.39 with a 20% tip included and leftovers for lunch. We are VERY thankful to have New Mandarin Garden in San Clemente!

Oh, forgot to mention that the restaurant is clean and comfortable.

Honey Walnut Shrimp


New Mandarin Garden rocks.

This is the best Chinese restaurant I have found in Orange County. The prices are really, really fair too. The food is just excellent.

I've become particularly fond of their Sunday buffet offering. They make much of their delicious menu items available, and offer bottomless champagne also. All for under $20. Great deal.

The decor here was recently redone. It's quite nice and modern now. The restaurant itself is located inside the historic Old City Plaza, where San Clemente's first jail and other interesting accommodations once resided. It's a bit tucked away, but it is right off El Camino Real - and just off an exit on the 5 Freeway.

The people here are super sweet. The food is just awesome. The cream cheese wontons and cilantro chicken are especially delicious.

Check out this place. I bet you'll love it too.

GET YOUR SPECIAL ORDERS HERE!

We came in close to closing time feeling bad but hungry enough to try and they happily sat us. We ordered quickly and the staff was so pleasant and accommodating (we have an egg allergy in the family & many times traditional Chinese restaurants won't do special orders). The food came out quickly (we got a [huge] 'cup' of wonton soup [tons of filling], mushu chicken, & Singapore rice noodles) and it was all fabulous. We were ravenous but oh man, it was SO much food! We put a big dent in the order and still took some home!! Happy about getting a lot of bang for our buck (I'd say they had standard prices for a nice restaurant & again, the portions were HUGE and very tasty). $34.40 Including a 20% tip, our total bill was $40.40.
The atmosphere was really nice too- It looked perfect for groups. I will be going back to try their dim sum one Sunday.

NICE RESTAURANT REMODEL!

Nicely remodeled restaurant. The General Tso chicken was awesome. My family and I will be coming back to dine here again.

HOUSE FRIED RICE!

We really liked New Mandarin Garden. All the food was really good and we love good Chinese food.  We had Pot Stickers, Beef Chow Mien, House Fried Rice, and Broccoli Beef and every dish was just excellent.  In fact, my wife said she really did not feel like eating but wanted to come along for the ride as we were in town to visit our son and she could not resist once the food began to show.  Loved it and will be back again.

HIDDEN GEM!

I was shown this hidden gem on a blind(ish) date some time ago but as it's not so geographically desirable to me I wanted to come back but didn't. Until now! Due to the lack of quality Chinese food in my immediate area I decided to take the (25 minute) drive to San Clemente to New Mandarin Garden. Upon my arrival I immediately noticed (not much gets by me) the new decor and was alarmed. Not because the new look was hideous because it was in face really nice but because I was afraid they may have had an ownership change or worse yet new chefs! To my triple delight this is not the case and it was just a simple remodel with no change in regime.
We sit and order sodas (gotta make that drive home) and they come in a glass boot! Was I transported to a country and western bar?? No.. funny but it holds liquid so we laugh, snap a photo and move along.
Today's order..... Wait for it.... Fried dumplings, Kung Pao three delight (shrimp, chicken, beef) and Hot Garlic Chicken. Both quite tasty and worth the drive from Oceanside!

Fried dumplings: Don't let the unusually high price of the dumplings (potstickers) fool you. They give you 8 of them and they're HUGE! They're also unbelievably good too. Packed full of meaty porky goodness. 

Kung pao: shrimp, beef and chicken wok seared (not fried) with red chilies and green onions and garlic. Sooooooo good! I love a good Kung Pao and this is really good. Oh.... I ordered it without peanuts too so don't look for them in my pictures.

Hot Garlic Chicken: white chicken slices seared in the wok (not fried) with mushrooms, carrots, snow peas and water chestnuts (my favorite). I could have  used a little more garlic for my liking and some more heat (spice). The older gentleman came frequently and refilled beverages and checked on us but not to excess. He provided friendly banter and useful information about the area since e aren't really local. If I had to wager a guess I'd bet on him being the owner.

So for my third visit (2 dine ins and one take out) I'd give it the Fat Guy Seal of Approval and will continue to make the drive to New Mandarin Garden for my favorites.

SOUP IS GOOD!

I had a kid with a fever and cold who wouldn't eat for two days. We ordered two soups to go, steamed rice and tofu lettuce wrap appetizer. I can't wait to go back and try more things on their menu! There was enough soup for an army first of all and both of them were delicious! Egg drop was full of stuff but not overly salty. Kid loved war wonton which was full of beef, chicken, shrimp, veggies and wonton!! The tofu lettuce wraps were awesome! Huge serving to stuff into fresh crispy iceberg! Can't speak for service but takeout was great! Can't wait to go for dinner!
Hot and Sour Soup - Yum!   Hot And Sour Soup


VACATE THE 405 FREEWAY!

Local Chinese full service restaurant...  Food quality and portions great...   I'll not need to dine for two days...

If you are in the area or needing to vacate the 405 freeway, this would be an excellent choice for you...
Shrimp Delightful


HUGE PORTIONS!

Love this little gem! The food is always fresh and flavorful. With huge portions, there's always plenty of leftovers to continue to enjoy! Sunday brunch is well worth the price. Small in appearance, but big in selections and always refreshing and refilling bins. Definitely recommend the egg foo yung! It's hard to find on a menu anymore, much less have it be half-way decent. Their's is the best!

BEST EGG ROLLS - BEST I'VE EVER HAD!

We ate here yesterday for lunch and the food was terrific!  I had the Honey Walnut Shrimp and it was TASTY!  The egg rolls were the best I've ever had!

THE JOY OF DINING!

I had to joy of dining at this restaurant last night and it was a great decision.

The staff was friendly and very attentive with making sure drinks were promptly refreshed. My party each ordered a different entree and shred them all. My least favorite was the orange chicken, but it was still good. Everything else was amazing. So fresh and made well. The sweet & sour chicken was amazing.

I'm definitely planning to return. The service was outstanding.

All You Can Eat Champaign Brunch


I highly recommend the Sunday Champagne Brunch! For only $15, you get an all you can eat buffet (I loved the orange chicken and the shrimp dumplings) and all you can drink champagne (they have OJ if you want mimosas). What a steal!

This is a great place to have a birthday! I was here last Sunday with a group of 20 people for a birthday and the service was AMAZING! Every 10-15 minutes they would come in to refill our champagne glasses. The servers were extremely generous, attentive, and nice.

I absolutely loved eating here and can't wait to come back for another Sunday Champagne Brunch.
Chinese Buffet Fresh Fruit Display


Amazing food & excellent service!

We have been going here for years and it has always been a very wonderful experience...Favorites are Honey Walnut Shrimp & Spicy Garlic Shrimp W/ Mushrooms!!!! Sunday brunch is great too, but we usually go for a family dinner 1-2 times a month.

Service is always TOP notch & very accommodating! Food comes out super fast, always refilling drinks. Overall very efficient & courteous.
Curry Chicken


I have been going here for years, and this is my favorite Chinese food place. They have the best egg rolls it have ever had! My favorite dish is the MooGooGaiPan chicken with carrots, snap peas and mushrooms served in a tasty sauce. Their fried rice is incredible, and their sweet and sour sauce is great for dipping! The pieces are average, but the portion sizes are pretty big. Orange Chicken Lunch


The best Chinese in all of South Orange County.

The service is amazing, everyone is so friendly and fast! Their dinner special is great and we left with more than enough left overs which was just as good the next day as the night of. We can't wait to go back or order take out if we are in a rush.
Mushroom Beef with Snow Peas


This place has every other Chinese  restaurant within a 25 mile radius beat.

The most attentive service without being overbearing, but know exactly when a guest was in need of service. The food was fresh hot and delicious! I suggest the family dinner B. It's was absolutely phenomenal and I'll be back everytime I crave chinese food.
China Lunch Bowls $6.50


The best Chinese food I have ever had

Here is a list of why:

Sunday Champagne Brunch is a reasonably priced and delicious all you can't eat buffet.

Honey Walnut Shrimp, Mushu Pork, Hot and Sour Soup, House Special Beef, and the Orange Chicken are all great.

The staff is friendly and always happy to see you

Great for parties in the private side room

We have been going here for years as a family get together spot.  Our tradition is usually to go on Christmas Eve.  We have Chinese places nearby in Mission Viejo but we will always hop on the freeway to go down to New Mandarin Garden.  I am going back for brunch on December 22nd!
China Buffet Sunday of Amazing Flavor


What a great place!

We took a trip to Legoland, on our way back home, we wanted to eat some good food, no fast food, my hubby searched through google, found few places, but this restaurant had few but all good responses, so we decided to give it a try.....boy I'm glad we did!! As soon as you walk in, greeted very nicely, the place look very clean and with a nice set up, The food was excellent, good portions, great price, and very tasty!! We ordered the Mongolian beef, the meet melted in our mouths!!! the house special chicken, the teriyaki flavor on point, shrimp fried rice to die for. The service is outstanding-- not once we had to ask for water/drinks refills (liquid is essential when eating), they were on it, the food didn't take long to be served and it was hot out of the kitchen! I would so go back again!! So, If you get a chance going or coming from San Diego, stop by it, you won't regret it!! Kudos to the chefs!!
Wonton Soup


Just tried New Mandarin Garden and WOW!!!!

It was terrific!!!  I got the shrimp and pecans and my hubby got the house chicken.. We shared and loved every bite.  They gave us so much we finished the shrimp and took half of the chicken home.  Very helpful and friendly people.  It is tucked away in the Palizada Plaza where the old jail is.  We will be back for dinner and try the Sunday Brunch!  Thank you Yelp reviewers, we'd been looking for good chinese food after Shanghai Charlie's went out.  Glad you pointed us in this direction.
Spicy Beef


Oh man, you never feel like you have truly moved somewhere and felt at home until you find good local Chinese food. Well at least that is one of my prerequisites...

The honey walnut shrimp is the best I've ever had! Super crispy and fresh and the creamy honey sauce is put on at the last second (also delicious!). Very tasty soups, I wasn't wild about the hot and sour, but it was still good. The beef vegetable was more tasty. The cream cheese wontons also amazing! Super crispy, not overly stuffed or soggy. Drooling just thinking about it. I live like a 5 minute walk from here and it sure takes a lot of willpower to not give in.

The service is not the fastest, but it is enjoyable. The elderly man who served us was the most jovial, friendly guy. So sweet, and was inquiring about the baby I'm pregnant with and such. Big smile!

Also, a plus is that in every San Clemente "pennysaver" you can find a 10% off discount coupon for the restaurant.

Good classic family Chinese restaurant atmosphere. Overall, I'm very excited about this discovery!
