Always fresh tasty food!

We are locals who have eaten here many times and continually enjoy the fresh and well prepared meals we have here. They are traditional Chinese food (Szechuan) and are so consistently good. We can always know that our meals will be just as yummy and the last time we were there!

If, like us, you have an urge for Chinese then this is your only option in town. We had a few dishes, noodles, kung po chicken, spring rolls and fried rice and it reminded me of what Chinese food used to be like back in the 70's. The portions are huge, I'd much rather they substituted quantity for quality, we... More

My husband and I were visiting Cambria for the 4th time and had never tried Dragon Bistro's food before. I checked online for reviews and from what I read, I thought it would be an enjoyable experience. I placed a take out order over the phone and when I asked the man who took my order for a total cost,... More

We were looking for a fast, hot meal. Most of the restaurants in town are very expensive, and we just wanted to eat good food in a nice place. This wasn't either. First of all, we had to wait a very long time to be seated. When we ordered and the food came, we found that it was the kind... More

We were staying in Cambria and craved Chinese food. Dropped by Dragon Bistro for take out. Bad move. I like my Chinese food simple & traditional (for a typical American/Jersey boy), but I like a good flavor with "clean" ingredients. Didn't get it this time and I should have spent my $40 somewhere else! We ordered cashew chicken, beef lo... More

We usuaIIy go there for Lunch. It has always been very good and very reasonable. PIus the decor is very appeaIing. My wife says that everything is always so fresh...her parents used to own a Chinese restaurant so that should speak volumes.

For a small-town restaurant with VERY little ethnic diversity, this place was excellent. They are the only game in town for Chinese food, so my expectations weren't all that high. Best egg foo young I've ever eaten. Prices commensurate with any other tourist-centric town.

One of the best Chinese restaurants we've ever visited. The egg-foo-yung was amazing. This is one of our new favorite restaurants and we've tried them all on the central coast (lived here for 53 years).
