I experienced the worst customer service from the waiter and the management/owner. I had extended family in from out of town and I told them before we went to this restaurant what a great restaurant it was. While ordering our food the waiter indicated that there would be an additional charge for the white rice that comes with the entree.... More

We have lived in the area for years and go here all the time. A favorite for my teenage sons and parents! Good overall Chinese menu and pricing are reasonable. Great location for tourists as you can pick it up and go see the many sights in the surrounding areas - like Dana Point Harbor - and avoid the pricey... More

Since we don't live in the area, we don't get to come here very often but this is the best Chinese food, and we even order extra dishes to go. The serving is large and I love the black mushrooms they use with tofu, and the spinach dish is delicious!

We've been going to Peking Dragon for many years, and still love the food and atmosphere. The Manager, Shane, does actually know everyone's name, and is always gracious, welcoming and funny. Favorites include the sizzling rice soup, garlic chicken, paper wrapped chicken, mu-shu pork, and Mongolian Beef. Parking tight, but worth the wait. It's a crowded madhouse on the weekends,... More

Visited the Peking Dragon for the first time with a group of about 30 people at 3 or 4 tables. The waiters managed to keep everything straight. Each couple ordered a dish or two for sharing so made the evening fun trying new things. All the dishes were very tasty and the service was excellent. Parking is adequate.

My boyfriend and I love Chinese food, and are not terribly picky, so it takes a lot to spoil Chinese for us. However, our 2 visits to Peking Dragon were awful. The food was tasteless and bland. We swore we wouldn't return a second time but decided to give it a second chance. Same result. We cannot recommend this restaurant.

The Peking Dragon is a delicious Chinese food restaurant. The owner always greets you when you arrive. They take reservations which is really nice since many restaurants don't anymore. They seat you immediately with a smile. The waiters are attentive. The food arrives at your table within 10 minutes hot and fresh. Best Chinese food I have ever had. You... More

Great place to eat in Dana Point. Love the Sweet and Sour Chicken and The Crab Ragoon appetizer. They also have a great shrimp and rice soup. Reasonable prices.
