Never mind the atmosphere, the food is great!

The best Moo Goo Gai Pan in Minneapolis. The outside of the building isn't much and the atmosphere isn't great, but the food is worth the price.

This place is known for their huge boozy punch bowls. It's possibly the most sketchy bar I have ever been in, in my life. We had some drinks, and cream puffs. The food looked(and tasted) like they just microwaved something frozen in the back. The drinks were very strong, but why pay $13 bucks for a big bowl of gut... More

I ordered some food from Red Dragon for delivery by BiteSquad. Frankly, it was the most mediocre food one could imagine, and at over $60 for two people stupidly over priced. We shared some pork rolls and puffs, which were as ordinary as any Chinese buffet that I've ever been to. We also got some noodles and a curry. The... More

We usually come to red dragon for drinks and appetizers. It is not a fancy bar but that's what gives it its local city charm. The severs are always the same group of people and pretty knowledgeable about the bar and the food. The wondrous punch is its star but all of the drinks are great, they will mix you... More

The "Wondrous Punch" may be a good deal... but it really isn't all that wondrous and neither is anything else about the restaurant. I have unfortunately been there twice. To say that it is sketchy would be a complement... There are plenty of other options... go somewhere safer.

This is one of my favorite dive bars/restaurants in Minneapolis. It's dark. It's dirty. It's seedy. The ambiance is very cool, the food has never disappointed, and the service is good. Top item on the menu: the lemon chicken.

Food is mediocre, but I think people usually go there for the drinks.
