In a remarkably short space of time Dragon-i has become one of the most talked about restaurants in not only Glasgow, but in Scotland as a whole. In fact, this astonishing eating establishment has captured the headlines south of the border, having been named one of the top five Chinese UK restaurants in the prestigious Observer food monthly supplement. But Dragon-i is more than a traditional Chinese eaterie - considerably more - as the plethora of culinary awards testifies to the creative skills of our Scottish Chef Silver Award Winner, Stephen Man whose remarkable vision has turned it into an unforgettable dining experience. Their outstanding passion in creating a superb dining experience and a friendly environment with outstanding personal contact make any visit an evening to remember and treasure.

Called in when passing to eat here and was far from disappointed indeed. The service was great along with the food. If you are in Glasgow to was a show then they do special deals for theartre goers has the venue is right across the street from this restaurant. Really nice place to eat.

Dragon i used to be one of our favourite restaurants in the city centre. We hadn't been for a while and heard that it had changed ownership. We found the food to be just ok and a bit lacking in sauce. The service which was once excellent ...seemed to be a bit lax. We were shown to our seat and... More

Wow this really does deliver a true Chinese experience , the food is absolutely delicious maybe a little more expensive than normal but well worth it by a mile! The restaurant had a lovely relaxing ambience, staff were very attentive despite being busy. Would definitely visit again and again ( CLASS )

We were excited to visit Dragon I having heard good things, but the although the service was slick and the restaurant modern and tasteful, the food was very average - no better than a ready meal. I had a prawn cocktail where the prawns were utterly tasteless and everything tasted the same - no interesting flavours at all. Good that... More

Lovely mean in Dragon-I, staff are very polite and attentive, ensuring everything is to your satisfaction. Food was amazing, so fresh and tasty, we had the chicken with apple and on Apple and the sea bass, both cooked perfectly! If you want Chinese food but don't want msg, give this place a try! It not only tastes better, it's healthier!

It's the first place many people check before visiting a new restaurant but would-be diners might be excused recents if trying to figure out what is going on at the Dragon I! My experience was the same as ever - fabulous. I saw no sign of any of the negatives mentioned by others. Service was fast, efficient and food hot... More
