Great food but feel rushed

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... read 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!

Four of us had dinner at Peking Dragon on New Year's Night. We did not have reservations, but were seated within a short period of time. We all had different entrees with special requests. Our server was friendly and very efficient. He brought our food quickly and all items were prepared perfectly and as requested. The food was hot and... More

We were driving north from San Diego heading to LA and hungry. Since it was Christmas Day hardly nothing was open and we came across Peking Dragon and gave it a shot. Definitely worth it. Very good Chinese food served family style. Wonton soup was full of flavor as it had vegetables and wonton. At other places I've been you... More
