If you want good Chinese-American food in Needham you won't find better than the Dragon Chef. Their food is cooked fresh (you can look into the kitchen while they prepare it.) The staff appear to be family, including the bright young lady who took our...More

This is our Friday night take out spot. After a long week we kick back at home with what we consider the best Chinese in the area. Very fast service, personable owners, you can see into the kitchen and watch your order prepared.
