After eating at the other Mandarin House Restaurant in Ventura we thought we'd try the one in Port Hueneme. It was not good at all. The service was so slow, unfriendly, and the food was mediocre. The soup was watered down and the entrees were flavorless. We were very disappointed. We won't be back.

This place has been here since July 4, 1980. I can't believe I never ate here before.The special dishes are very tasty. Our group of 4 ordered the alcoholic beverage called the Scorpion. It comes in a huge sea shell with looooooooong straws to reach every diner. Lots of fun!

I have 1 hour for lunch. The order takes way too long. Waited 45 minutes for my order. Not enough help, portions are small. Had to get my order to go after all the waiting, my guest- same deal. It will be a while till I go back.

Mandarin House Restaurant is a bit tucked away as one drives down the street, so you may miss it. But if you are reading this review, you will find it. The food was very tasty, and the service was prompt. The atmosphere is conducive to relaxed conversation. This restaurant is one of my regular local choices for Chinese food.

Well I talked to the owner and set up a large dinner party "30 plus people". The owner told me that he would comp my dinner for bringing the corvette club for dinner.

We have been going there for at least 23 years, and the food is great. We were recently there from our home in WA and were very happy to see Jennifer..not sure if she is still part of the ownership still, but even though it had been about 4 years since our last visit, she recognized us, remembered my name,...

I love this place! When we were stationed on base across the street wed come eat once a week!! It was the go to spot! ... I've tried Chinese food in about ten different states and this is by far - hands down THE BEST! But the owners are always changing? Don't know if that's good or bad?
