Grew up in Dana Point and I have been going to Peking Dragon since high school (1990!). I have lived in 5 states since then and traveled all over the place and this remains my absolute favorite Chinese restaurant. Any time I go home I pay homage to the great Peking and their Garlic Fried Chicken!

Decent Chinese food. They're no Crown Chinese, but gets the job done when you have a craving for sizzling rice soup. Just ate there recently and I was happy with my meal.

This is a very friendly, well kept, family friendly restaurant, the fud is some of the best I've had, more importantly it's consistently good. It's in the town center, 10 minute walk to the harbor. Say hi to Shane the owner, he'll great you at the door.

Great atmosphere, good service. The dinner combinations are great. The lunch specials are nothing special and lack the complexities of the dinner offerings. Good value and pleasant experience on all levels.

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, chicken with vegetables, sweet and sour chicken. All good!

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...

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.
