The best of everything

when I say Peking Dragon is the best of everything, I mean everything! It is the best Chinese food in Orange County. It is the best service at the best price and it has a wonderful 80's ambiance that you can't find anywhere else. We have been going here for Chinese food for years and it is... read more

Went on trip advisor to find a good Chinese place for 5. Had the dinner for four and was extremely happy with our great meal. Everything was fresh and delicious. Service was good and price was fantastic. All the people around us were raving and we became big fans. Would recommend to family and friends. Worth the trip.

We enjoyed the traditional Chinese faire here ... There is only one thing that they could improve .... Slow down ... Everything is ordered fast and delivered faster ... Not even a small break between appetizer and main course and we were never asked if we wanted dessert and we ended up ordering it A meal should be enjoyed not... More

We followed them from Garden Grove to Dana Point. We would go here more often, but it is a bit of a drive from where we live, never the less, we try and come for special occasions. The sizzling rice soup is a family favorite. As is the honey walnut shrimp. We have come so often, we have a favorite... More

Serendipity. We drove to Dana Point to meet a friend and have dinner at his favorite sushi restaurant. It was a holiday weekend and it turned out to be an impossible wait for 6 at the sushi bar. We're flexible and walked a few doors up PCH to the Peking Dragon after calling ahead to see if the could accommodate... More

We have been coming here for over 19 years. A family owned restaurant where the owner is always present and involved. Guys will be comfortable is nice shorts and a buttoned down short sleeve casual shirt, ladies seem to dress up a bit more, but you can get away with nice shorts and sandles if you choose. Try to order... More

I have been going to Peking Dragon since I moved here in 1987. I grew up in L.A. and ate in Chinatown since I was a child. I immediately found the quality of the food and as important, the consistency of the food has been great for 28 years. I travel the country and the world, and always end up... More

We had their lunch special and everything was very good, especially their egg rolls. We ordered mongolian beef and mandarin shrimp. The fried chicken appetizer was interesting.
