Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having been very disappointed with the last couple of takeaways from the Chinese we've been using for nearly 20 years, we decided to try out the Dragon. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and very fresh-tasting. Will definitely use again.

My husband and I had a takeaway from here for the first time. It was okay, but we wouldn't really go here again! The flavours weren't particularly incredible and the staff both on the phone and whilst picking up the takeaway weren't the friendliest!

What can I say, delicious food, excellent service, polite staff and overall a very pleasant evening where we ate far too much! Definitely go for the all you can eat menu unless you have the appetite of a sparrow. We visited for our anniversary and will be going back next week for my husbands birthday

Whilst the premises are unassuming from the exterior, this is by far the best Chinese restaurant in the local vicinity. We have visited before but our most recent trip was yesterday for Mother's Day. Could not fault the service which was excellent, and whilst the menu was reduced (buffet on Sundays), there was still a wide choice of food on... More

The quality of food is outstanding. Service is extremely quick. The menu is the most comprehensive I have seen at a Chinese restaurant. Go for the Yum Yum chicken!

I think the title of my review says it all. The only reason I've not given it 1 star is because it was cheap. I went here with a group of friends on Saturday night. We found the staff unfriendly and quite rude. We ordered our food at the bar (the English man was friendly) and sat down at our... More
