This place is good for late night. I went here last night with my boyfriend because it was late. I do like there scallion pancakes but my chicken fingers and pork fries rice was burnt. My boyfriend asked for extra duck sauce and the waitress said there's some right on the table. Then she left and brought something else over... More

I would advise that you do not give Dragon Light your business. After placing an order for delivery, I received a call that the food had arrived. Upon delivery, the driver's speech was indecipherable. He explained that he was “here” at the address given. We waited for the food delivery outside, but to no avail. The driver then called ten...

Dragon Light isn't a bad place to get Chinese food. It's right off the rotary and very convenient. I've been going there since I was a child so it's almost a Gloucester institution. They're open very late and serve alcohol so a lot of people go there for late night Chinese. I recently went out to eat with my father... More

I will own that I'm not a fan of Chinese food. But I'm *really* not a fan of Dragon Light. I usually get by when my friends want Chinese by indulging in crab rangoon & soup -- rangoon was cold & greasy here. Soup is much better at the take-out on Maplewood, Ocean Garden.

This is absolutely the WORST chinese food I have ever had. My family barely ate the food we ordered, and didn't bother to bring it home. I can't explain what the exact problem was, but the food just tasted BAD. ALL of it. Honestly I didn't bring the leftovers home for the dog because I didn't want himn to get... More

A couple of decades ago, my sister frequented this place when she lived in the area, and on a recent visit to Cape Ann, we went in here for appetizers for old times' sake. The food was disgusting, the wine had turned, the atmosphere was non-existant, and the service wasn't good either. I can't imagine how this place stays in... More
