No doubt the best (AND authentic) Chinese restaurant in Tucson. Note that they have a $10 lobster when you order $25 or more. Their food not only taste great but also got awesome presentation. It is a little bit away from downtown but definitely worth it.

The Dragon is a local favorite. We are lucky enough to live only a few blocks away, so for us this is a favorite local restaurant. It is also very popular with the downtown crowd during lunch time. Try their moo-shoo.

Vegetarians delight and moo shoo pork were delicious but, I just couldn't get over the old poinsettias with the dust on them around our tables, could you just take them down! Just a little sprucing up of this place could do wonders! The food is good I just wonder what's happened to this little out of the way place? A... More

Service is great, food is wonderful and the portions are over the top large. A few of the items we have had are spicy Mongolian Beef, Spicy Thai Chicken, Spicy Sesame Chicken, and several others. We actually go here with a group each week, and all the dishes are great. I have never heard a complaint from anyone in our... More

Last May the temps in Tucson started to skyrocket, as usual. I was attending a workshop on Saturday at my job, and they gave us a full hour for lunch. I had not brought lunch so I high-tailed it over to Dragon View some blocks away to get takeout Chinese food and bring back to work. I parked my vehicle... More

This restaurant is dirty! Sticky floors, sticky tables, and sticky counters! They offer both a menu and buffet. On the buffet, Very few seafood dishes, the shrimp dish was NOT fresh, the fried fish was hard like a rock, and very few labels to describe the dish presented...who knows what they are eating? No sushi, very few salad and dessert... More

Dragon's VIew is probably the most authentic Chinese restaurant in Tucson, catering especially to the Local Chinese community. They have an extensive English menu, and also a separate English-Chinese menu with many items you might never have known existed. My favorite by far, though, is the Peking duck, which is available every day without ordering in advance. It comes with... More

A group of us went here each week for the three months we were in Tucson, and not once did we get tired of the food. The menu is very extensive and the service is outstanding. Would like to list my favorite dish, but every week was something different and each time I thought that was my favorite! I understand... More

The restaurant was close to the place where we stayed. Lots of parking & they do take out. Convenience was the key. We ordered fried rice, lomein, mongolian beef & BBQ pork. Fried rice was the only thing that was good. The rest was ok but the people that works there were very nice & friendly plus the price was... More
