The Fat Dragon is a great place to dine in the Scott's Addition area of Richmond. The food options are very good, the portions are plentiful, and the food itself is very good.

Interesting & really attractive food. Dumpling appetizer fantastic and different, spicy. Good happy hour specials. Wine on tap. Not a quiet place. Street parking or can (currently) park in 'for sale' lot across Boulevard.

Good news: the food was awesome. S loved his calamari starter and his Enter the Dragon main course (a seafood dish). I had the Szechuan chicken wings, and Fei-Lone beef and it was the best gluten-free meal of my LIFE. Full of incredible flavor and...More
