Good quality Chinese food

being from the New England East Coast, I found this restaurant, as well as others in the area, pricy compared to NY/CT. However, they were very accommodating. I ordered vegetable with rice noodles, instead of regular Lo Mein and added Shrimp. Very yummy. The other dished ordered were egg rolls... read more

We have been coming to Peking Dragon since it opened in the late 80s when we were in high school. It is by far our favorite Chinese food. The owner (Shane) is always extremely friendly and goes out of his way to say "hi". It is hard to list favorites because there are so many. Particular recommendations: -Garlic Fried Chicken... More

Our family has been frequenting Peking Dragon for 30 years and have found the quality of the food and service to be consistently outstanding. Try the lunch menu for its soup, appetizer and entrée - about $12 - large selection to choose from and a great value. Dinner for couples, family and friends is equally fun with dozens of items...

Peking Dragon is a long time favorite for the past 20+ years. The food and service is impeccable. My wife loves the sizzling rice soup!

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
