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.

Have been vacationing in Cambria every year since 1986 so my wife & I have tried just about every restaurant. We always dine at the Dragon Bistro at least twice during the week. It is my favorite for the following reasons: excellent, freshly prepared food with a wide selection of choices from mild to spicy, relaxing atmosphere, comfy booths, very... More

What a day!  So we had dinner at a random Chinese place called "Dragon Bistro". We walked in and there's like no worker at the front so we wait. Another group walks in just like us, wondering where's the waiter. The waiter comes by and ask the new group the number of people in their party but ignores us when... More

My husband and I tried the Dragon Bistro in Cambria, it was absolutely wonderful! We had so much food and excellent advice from the owners, it was really delicious food that neither my husband or I had tried before. Service was very attentive and it was a really cute little restaurant. I would definitely recommend people going there to eat!!!

I'm somewhat particular about the food I eat but have always enjoyed the food served at the Dragon Bistro. We've eaten there several times with relatives or friends and they have all been happy with the restaurant and what they ate. We chose one of the complete meals and then everyone gets to select one of the listed items for... More
