We always go here when we visit Dana Point. Reservationo suggested for large groups. Tomato beef and lemon chicken are favorites

My wife and I heard this was the best Chinese food in the area. We went for dinner right after they opened in the evening. There were many booths and tables and it wasn't long before the place was almost full of diners. We had their special Dragon Dinner for two. It included Sizzling Rice Soup (2 bowls for each... More

Went at 2:15 - they rushed us through lunch because the kitchen staff HAD to go home at 2:30 - we were still on our soup and had our appetizers and our lunch put on the table before we were done with our soup! Rushed all the food out to us, so by the time we started on our main... More

I have been eating at Peking Dragon for over 15 years. Many of the same people have been working here for over a decade. The 1980's decor could use updating, but menu is fine. My favorite dish is the MaPo Tofu. Perfect.

Consistently good food. Reasonable prices. Excellent service. Be sure to make a reservation because the Dragon is very popular.

The Peking Dragon is a Dana Point fixture. Ordinarily, I go there for lunch. Their lunch menu includes and appetizer and soup. Fried chicken is one of the appetizers and it strikes me as the best I have had. It so good that I can't order any other appetizer. All the food is excellent, great service and value!

The food and atmosphere were great. We ordered the dinner course meal. The food just kept coming, coming, and coming. I thought that it was never going to end. It included: salad, soup, chicken, beef, duck, rice, pork, vegetables, noodles, etc. The wait staff kept everything moving without delay. That is rear for that type of dining. My next trip... More

My wife and I lived in Dana Point around 15 years ago. We went to the Dragon once and I thought it was a good restaurant. I wanted to go back but my wife isn't as fond of Chinese food as I am. We soon moved about a half hour away. Recently, we were in the area staying at a... More
