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.
