  1. The place Maincoons is inquiring about is called Lagos de Oro or Lakes of Gold in English.  It is ok if you are hungry and want something fast but it is far from the best.  I never noticed it to be filthy as one poster pointed out and I have never gotten sick there.  I have been pretty disappointed with Chinese food in Mexico as a whole.  One thing I miss are those huge Chinese buffets with everything imaginable on 10 tables or more.  I have never seen anything like it in Mexico.  Asiana buffet in Asheville, NC was utterly amazing.  

  2. This region is extremely safe to walk day and night.  Violence and muggings are not common for expats here except unless you try to make extra income in the drug trade.  Those that do usually don't get out alive.  If you use basic common sense and don't drink and hang out with mafiosos you will have nothing to worry.  This area is much safer than most of the USA if you don't get stupid.

  3. Rest assured you will not be the only newcomer visiting here right now, not by a long shot.  In my 11 years here I have never seen so many newbies moving here and visiting this area at once.  I am speaking as someone living in Chapala.  Chapala is being swarmed, the other afternoon I saw more gringos on the Chapala malecón than Mexicans and that had never happened before.  I can only imagine how it is in Ajijic.  But don't forget to check out Chapala too, its layout and affordabillity among other reasons may make it more rewarding than the other towns.  It all depends on what the expat needs if you prefer gringo bars and gringo restaurants in an over crowed expat town Ajijic is your town.  If you prefer to attempt to melt into the Mexican community surrounded by mostly flat, smooth and wide avenues and sidewalks with ample shopping and stores and not feel constantly bombarded by English being spoken then Chapala may be more of your cup of tea.
