I'm rating it low because the last two times I've been there, the service keeps getting worse and worse. Our family has gone there for several years as a treat because the food was delicious and the atmosphere was rather peaceful.
Not to mention their sweet and sour chicken was rock solid, cashew chicken was extremely soggy and the server just left the mushu pork for us to make. When we tried to get the server's attention, she blatantly ignored us. We couldn't get anyone's attention so we could order more food (since there were five people and the mushu pork only makes 4). They might have switched management because of the changes in service and food quality.
These past two times have been the worst experiences that I have had at any restaurant so I will not be going back anytime soon.
Excellent – I really enjoyed this place. The food was very fresh,and tasty! The service was also great. Not to mention their big portions too...
VERY GOOD Chineses Food – I have been to several Chinese restaurants in Salinas and NONE can compare to Chef Lees Mandarin House II. Their portions are far beyond generous, the food is definitely GREAT. As far as the chicken is concerned, it is DELICIOUS. It does look as though they use the dark meat rather than white meat. It is the best Chinese restaurant in Salinas and the same goes for the reviews as their other restaurant in Monterey. Food is great, piping hot and most of their wait staff is excellent.
Bad Quality Chinese Food – I have been living here in Salinas for 6 years now and had eaten at Chef Lee II in Salinas CA and it was good before. But now...it is the worst Chinese food I have ever had. We end up throwing the food we bought and this is the second time. I didn't complain the first time but second time is not right. If you want Chinese food...go somewhere else...might be a little better but not as bad as Chef Lee II. Wonder what kind of food they are serving at the main branch...Monterey @ Fremont. WATCH OUT !!! Chicken does not taste chicken at all !!! Might be something else.
