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.

Despite being located in a strip mall, this restaurant is large and nicely decorated inside. However, we were not impressed witht the food. We enjoyed the won ton soup. The soup bowls are small, and the 2-person order fills each bowl up twice. The won tons were delicious. We also ordered orange chicken which was not served crisp...the pieces felt... More

This place is utmost professional and amazing to schedule a last minute crowd of over 100 people. My brother passed away recently and I were frantically looking for a place to have an after funeral luncheon. After looking at various locations I found this place. I called on a Friday and talked to John. He was so nice to put... More

Where else do you get a hug from the owner before the meal. This place is just a gem. The food is basic old-school Chinese food like I remembered from my childhood (here in So. Cal). Both family style and meals are good. This place is the total opposite of the corporate chain Chinese restaurants and is just a kick.

If you don't have a favorite...like the shrimp toast or the hot, sour, spicy soup, then ask one of the owners to recommend something. You will not be steered wrong. Chi should be mayor of Costa Mesa - she knows everyone!
