Standard Chinese-American restaurant

The food was good, our waiter was VERY good. The Wondrous Punch (That the RD seems to be famous for) was enough for the five of us... Negative - someone was smoking in the bar, and it came straight into the dining area. I had the hot and sour soup - as our waiter recommended to me, even the... read more

I have been going to the Red Dragon since before my children were born. They are now 28 and 30 years old. This was always a family favorite for us. From the poo poo platters, the lo mein, and virtually anything on the menu, it is ALL GOOD! The Wanderers' punch has always been a one of a kind treat... More

I ordered a drink recommended by waiter. I ordered food. It was good food but after having a few sips of drink I noticed a dead bug in it. I asked him to see the bug and that I was grossed out and don't want more...he still charged me full price and said they don't care the excuse and it... More

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.

My Nephew and I entered to this restaurant that I used to Love. Well, not anymore the service was terrible, the waitress didn't didn't know what meals were still on the menu and what meals were off. The table was coming apart it was really run down and there didn't have that clean fresh look so my nephew and I... More

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

this place used to be cool---cheap eats that made your belly turn..sadly now they are just known for their wonderous punch. it is and be careful, their cocktails will put you under the table...try the almond delight drinks....only drink there DO NO EAT! you'll have belly issues for sure.

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.
