This place used to be the only chinese food in the area. Opened more than 30 years ago, we've been coming here forever. Starting to become a little aged but still one of the best spots for good chinese without all the "fusion" bs. Love mandarin House!

I have ate here twice while in the area on business - Both times the food was very good. I will go back the next time I'm in town.

The waitress was terrific. The day we went it was so understaffed. One waitress to handle telephone and all. She was wonderful, but I felt bad for her. Obviously overworked. The chef, seemed to be just one also. The food was not up to the standard of other Chinese restaurants we've visited, unfortunately. My chicken in the Moo Shu (like... More

We have made this our spot for Chinese food for many years. It never disappoints us. We usually go for lunch because it is cheaper than dinner where each item is allocart. The lunch menu includes soup, rice, and one lunch choice. I always order a side of eggrolls as well.

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.

Been coming here for years....however most recent visit was average. Place was not packed....but service was VERY slow...and lacked some attention to detail. Sorry...but that's the truth of the matter...
