Lakeside Chinese has been here since I've lived in Rancho Santa Margarita {1995}. The owners are super friendly people and the food here is always very good. My daughter claims they have the best Orange Peel Chicken. I can state that I am always satisfied here. Great place.

We wanted quick carry-out on the way back to Mission Viejo from a long day in San Diego. Quick was the only thing good, food was ready in 10 minutes. Ordered Kung Pao shrimp, Spicy chicken with vegetables (didn't have a menu) and Hot and Sour soup. The food looked OK but it was very bland (even though they were... More

Convenient, reasonable prices, good quality. A bit dated as far as the interior goes, but well maintained family owned business. Prices are much better than the chain restaurants and service is very good. Never had a bad meal in 18 plus years we've lived here.

We have been going to this restaurant for 28 years. We are never disappointed. The menu is stable with chef's specials. The staff is friendly and will customize orders.

I would agree with a lot of the other reviews on here, the food is average. I really enjoy the lemon chicken here but the other dishes we had were average at best. I must say the highlight of the dinner was the funny waitress and the half bottle of house wine.
