Great food!

This restaurant has been around for years and we have been there many times. No matter how long it has been since the last time we were there, the owner greets you like family and remembers you. The food is always excellent.

It is family oriented and the service is great. The prices are... More

As a Chinese national, I know what good authentic Chinese and good American-Chinese foods are. This place claimed to have been serving Chinese foods for 40 years, The fact is, whatever... More

It is a big restaurant and at first it looked like no one was in there, but that wasn't the case. The service was excellent and the portions... More

Wow. I have been living in Newport for years and have been looking for a good Chinese restaurant and haven't found one... until now. Everything about this restaurant was great. My boyfriend and I went here on an impromptu date night (our stove broke mid-cooking) and we decided to go on a limb and try a new restaurant. Needless to... More

Have eaten at Golden Dragon several times. The food is fabulous! Always fresh and quickly served. The staff is so very charming! They treat you as family! I always look forward to going to The Golden Dragon whenever I am in town.
