Absolutely the best meal we have ever had in North cyprus--and we have had many! Lovely decor well trained ,smart staff, attentive owner and food which can only be described as excellent. Well worth paying a little more than normal local prices--but this is by no means a normal meal.

Menu is the same with different meat variations. Drinks choice is limited and service is too bland would expect better for the cost

The place is one of the two original chinese restaurants in North Cyprus. They use orginal imported ingredients from China and employ experienced chefs. Being a huge chinese cuisine fan, i can recommend this place without a second thought. Staff are very welcoming and ambiance is amazing. Crispy beef, sizzling beef and almond chicken are my magic trio. Their complimentary... More

Nothing is especially wrong with this restaurant: at the end of the day is Chinese food! But the price is a bit high (because is Chinese food). Now the inside if the restaurant is really done tastefully and I did love there when I had dinner in spring. So we thought that the outside in summer will be equally tastefully... More

We tried the Dragon for the first time in its new location near the Lemar supermarket. I was a littl put off by the prices - 75TL for a two-course set menu is horrendous for N Cyprus, but we love Chinese food so decided to give it a try. We sat outside, and we found the surrounding agreeably pleasant. The... More

This restaurant still has the most decent Chinese food in the Kyrenia region however you do not get value for the money spent and add to that an automatic 10% service charge - you end up paying in the 100s (tl) per person (and the only sophisticated item we had was a duck). A restaurant should not charge an automated... More

We have visited the Dragon every year for the past 7 years to celebrate my daughters birthday. When it was located at the Rocks Hotel it was top notch. Now, in a shopping centre, it's not the same. The food was good but I wonder if he has lost his chef? And the service was excellent as usual. We were... More

After having lived in Turkey for two months, my husband and I were only looking for something a bit different from the normal fare when we spent a weekend in Northern Cyprus. So we decided to have dinner at the Dragon, not expecting a lot. But we were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, the food was extremely nice and... More

We had the set menu, and I know Chinese food tastes differently in other countries, but the blandness and lack of sauces here made it disappointing, especially when you are paying top whack. My wife loves her spare ribs usually, but commented that these spare ribs appeared to have been cooked "as is" ie no herbs or spices, and a... More

This is a difficult restaurant to review, the ambience is nice and the staff very helpful, yet it suffers slightly from pretension. Unfortunately if you are going to charge prices in excess of twice some other chinese restaurants locally then you have to also outperform them for taste and overall experience, The Dragon doesn't. There is nothing wrong with the... More
