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).

We walked in and were seated within moments which was good as we were starving. We ordered one of the set menus at around $18 each which included appetiser, won ton soup, rice and a main dish. Each course was timed well and was absolutely lovely, especially the soup which I adored. By the time our sesame chicken and orange... More

We called in for take out. When we arrived to pick up the food, we had to haggle and plead with the owner for a few extra chilli sauce packets. The food was OK and quantities good. However, the chicken dishes were 1/4 chicken and 3/4 vegetables. The Sweet corn soup was excellent. Given that he is the only Chinese... More

We try hard to vista the Dragon Bistro at least once while in Cambria. They have a great lunch special. My family and I love the orange chicken. The restaurant sits right in the shopping party of Cambria. This makes it nice to grab luck there and then continue shopping. Service was good. We will defiantly be back!

We loved eating at the Dragon Bistro, and it was excellent on all accounts. The prices were reasonable, about $12 to $15 for a great and plentiful meal. The egg drop soup, egg rolls, and crab meat Rangoon were superb, the service was friendly and very responsive, and the setting was beautiful, with fine linen tablecloths, an environment that encouraged...

We got take out from here after a long day when we just wanted to relax a bit and not spend $100+ on dinner. There aren't a lot of take out options in Cambria so it was this or pizza. After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we figured it was going to be hit-or-miss, but decided to take our chances. The... More

This was one of these cheap Chinese restaurants that gives you 512 vegetables in amongst about 5 pieces of chicken. The food actually tasted good, but I don't have much patience for places that try to cheat you out of meat by giving you tons of vegetables instead.

I honestly feel after seeing they got an "award of excellence" and reading the reviews of this place that a lot have to be bogus. The food is average at best. My girlfriend got the lo mein and I got the Kung Pao chicken- they were... mediocre, akin to a strip mall Chinese fast food joint. The prices are double... More

The food at Dragon Bistro is good, but it is about double the price of what you pay at your neighborhood chinese food restaurant. I find that having to pay extra for a small bowl of steamed rice a bit chintzy too. Rice should always come with the meal. The staff are very nice and generally attentive.
