A fave

This place is in the middle of nowhere, in a semi-industrial area. But if you like Thai and you want it smokin' hot, there is that option.

Make no mistake. The place does not look like much. It's hard to find. The decor is simple. Not many people have heard of it. To those who really appreciate great Asian cuisine, these things are a mixed blessing. The Blue Dragon has a fantastic selection of dishes. The ingredients are fresh, the portions are filling, and it is reasonably... More

Excellent flavour selections. Soups very good, as are main dishes. Authentic Thai choices also.

We decided to go for lunch in our town. I found the Blue Dragon on tripadvisor where it was rated #3 in town. Had never heard of the place before, so I got the address and we went. We got there at 11:45 am. In ten minutes the place was full. Lots coming in for take out as well. This... More

The service was attentive and timely. If you have the privilege of eating there when they are not too busy, the staff will explain how the food is prepared and what is in it. This is very interesting for food that we don't see on menus very often. The food is very well prepared and presented. The restaurant is tastefully... More

Have tried a lot of the lesser known places in Red Deer, and I have to say that this is still one of my top picks. Food is always excellent, and staff is very friendly. Dishes are relatively inexpensive, so it's a cheaper place to take the family. Highly recommend everybody try it at least once.

My 17 year old son and I love this restaurant!! The appetizers (chicken satay, spring rolls, chicken wings in chili sauce) are generous and full of flavor. There is a large selection of curries so each time he chooses a different one and is always happy with his dish. I stick to the Dragon Bowl which is more Vietnamese and... More

We've been hearing how good this place is, so finally decided to pick up some food. Normally we'd go for a meal, but decided to just pick up as we live out of town. Everything we ordered was great. Tom Yum Nam Khon soup was definately enjoyed. We also had, chicken satay skewers, lemongrass chicken stir fry and more. Great... More

I've been coming to Blue Dragon for a couple of years as it's near my work. We probably eat there once per week. The location is a little different, but if you can get past that - the food is just excellent. Vietnamese and Thai food rank among my favorite cuisine, so I have eaten at many of these restaurants...

As I read in other reviews, the location is unusual, but the food is the best I've had in a long, long time. The spring rolls are delicious and our picky son asks for them whenever we are on that end of town. We haven't tried all of the dishes on the menu but of the ones we tried they... More
