Ranked #3 of 25 restaurants in Granby
Cuisines: Chinese
Description: Excellent place for good Chinese food! On the outside, the place looks like nothing special, in fact, it looks closed. We decided to try it out, thanks to other YELP reviews. Our waitress even asked us where we'd heard about this place, so we told her, and she said I hope everything is great. She was fun, attentive, and gave great customer service. She was happy to explain the menu and any item we asked about. Truly enjoyed our meal! We tried the PINEAPPLE CHICKEN, and WOW, that was the freshest lightly fried chicken slices, in a light flavored pineapple sauce, with pineapple chunks. The Pot Stickers were the best we've ever had!! After going thru a few menus at the more pricey restaurants in this area, we chose this winner!! We were very impressed, and we will be back on our next visit to Granby/Grand Lake/Winter Park area.

Not really impressed. The very most American of American Chinese. Can't really recommend the lemon chicken - it was drowning in lemon syrup, way too sweet to enjoy. The sweet and sour sauce was cheap from a bottle, and everything I ate was too greasy. Owners and decor were awesome, though. I'm sure some enjoy this sort of Chinese, but... More

Friendly! Food was tasty and plentiful. It was prepared fresh. The owners gave us suggestions on what to order and even did a custom order for us.

After suffering through awful and overpriced food in Estes Park (including bad Chinese food), we finally enjoyed a meal at Pearl Dragon. Obviously one wouldn't think to visit a Chinese restaurant in a small town in Colorado, but the meal was flavorful, fresh, and affordable. Service was also excellent.

The food was as good as I've ever had. My wife and I wanted to try a Chinese food dish we had never eaten before. The waitress was very helpful letting us know what items (snow peas, carrots, etc...) were in the dishes and she never got frustrated or made us feel like we were imposing - she was very... More

After posting about far flung restaurants I finally looked at reviews for my small county. Pearl dragon is always consistent. Lynn is amazing in that if you go there more than two times she will probably remember your name and what you ordered. Lunch or dinner, eat in or order out, you can count on what you will get. When... More

We are local and eat here every time we yearn Chinese food. Lynn and company always welcome with a smile. Good food I big quantities for reasonable prices. Some meals are big enough for two people to share

We discovered this restaurant in July 2013 and have already been 6 times while traveling near Granby. Every item we have tried on their menu is amazing. It is the best chinese restaurant we have found in all of Colorado. I wish they had one in Denver! Sesame Chicken, orange beef, hot n sour soup, crab cheese wontons, sizzling hot... More

Stopped here for lunch after snowmobiling in Grand Lake, based on reviews we read on Yelp. The excellent reviews were well founded, fresh made food with reasonable prices. The lunch special was huge and we should not have ate the whole serving, but it was so good we couldn't stop. The two waitresses were great stopped by several times to... More

Fresh, authentic food. I love the spicy, hot chicken meal. No bland food here! Nothing I've ever eaten there has been nothing other than good, fast and attentive service.

We grabbed dinner here during an overnight stay in Granby. My husband is trying to watch his waistline so we requested that they make a lower calorie version of General Tso's chicken (i.e. no batter). They were super nice and accommodated our request with delicious results! Also try their stir fried vegetables (we ordered stir-fried snow peas) - it will... More
