CHINESE FOOD AT ITS BEST!!

We love the house special noodles, the huge egg rolls, and the General Tsao's chicken, as well as the wonderful service. No matter how crowded it gets, they always have your dinner in a timely manner.

You can not beat the food at this restaurant. We were two couples. We decided to share a POO-POO Platter for starters. We could have stopped right there and forget ordering anything else. It was huge and wonderful. We ended up taking the rest of our meal home in a doggie bag. We go here at least once a month.... More

This place cranks. Try the Peking Dragon Fried Rice. It's a dish all by itself. They put all kinds of ingredients into the rice to make it a favorite dish. The spicy dishes are not too spicy but hot enough to taste really good like Kung Pao Chicken etc. Make sure to have the hot tea.

As a New York style Chinese food fan, Peking Dragon is close to it. Perfect for a large group of friends as they offer a selection of dishes according to amount of people. All are delicious and most of all ~ "No MSG and/or B-products". The sizzling rice soup is outstanding! Take out is available. If you arrive after 1:30... More

We always get seated vey quickly because they are never busy. When we order our lunch meal it comes with several things, soup, appetizer then our meal. Everything seems to come at once, not giving us enough time to finish the first thing before the 2nd thing arrives then here comes the main meal. Lately we just feel like we... More

Met a friend here. They just redirected traffic on PCH in Dana Point making the access a little tricky. Nevertheless, the parking lot was packed and I parked across the street. This place is very popular for a very good reason, the food is great. We had a shrimp with plum sauce on a Chinese pancake and a spicy chicken... More

In every town there is one Chinese place that every local goes to. This is it for Dana point. Clean, non greasy Chinese with little nuances that will make you come back. As most are, your value meal is the lunch specials running around $10 including soup and egg roll/ fried chicken choice. Definitely try the chicken. Cloth table tops,... More

We brought a friend from out-of-state here on Saturday evening….and the place was packed (so we patiently waited for a table for about 30 minutes). Once seated, we ordered the "family dinner" which is not our normal style, but the waiter said it was good AND it was!! We particularly liked the garlic fried chicken….wonderful. There was so much food... More

I have dined at the Peking Dragon multiple times and my father is a regular customer since the 80s! The lovely married couple who own the place are putting so much effort to keep their restaurant as one of the best Chinese restaurants in town. The food and the service are always excellent!
