Warning do not eat here

The worst food I have ever bought in a resturant. The sweet and sour was just salt, sugar, vinegar and red food die. The curry sauce was bland. The chips were soggy. The bamboo shoots and water chestnuts were from a tin. The mixed vegetables were the mix veg with prawns, with the prawns removed... read more

Never had a bad meal here. It's not always the busiest restaurant but still the service is brilliant and the food it always hot, tasty and no complaints at all.

Four generations in our family have been coming to the golden dragon over the years. Staff are always keen to please and work very hard to give the best service possible. The menu is varied with something for all. The salt baked chilli squid and sizzler plates are must if you haven't tried them before. All the usual Chinese favourites... More

Went on a quiet Sunday night and the restaurant was fairly quiet, I was a bit dubious about going in as it does not look terribly exciting from the outside. We went in and were seated quickly, great menu with lots to choose from. The food was very nice, if we lived in Exmouth we would go again tonight! Service... More

We visit the East Devon area several times a year and always make a point of going to the Golden Dragon. The staff are always friendly, and we know what we like and that it is always on the menu. I really like their chicken noodle soup and the salt & pepper ribs as starters. I have tried most scallop... More

When we arrived we were asked if we had booked; we hadn't but being only two we were shown to a table after about 5 minutes. Food was average and service was poor. They needed more staff as they were rushing around. Was pretty fully with people but I have eaten in better Chinese restaurants.

We've been coming to this Chinese restaurant for 16 years. The crispy shredded beef is the finest you will eat anywhere. The lemon chicken and sweet and sour king prawns are also favourites. Ben and his team are friendly and attentive. The food is always screaming hot and we have been with tables of 2 to tables of 20. I've... More

Golden Dragon used to be good. However, the last two visits have not been great. Food cold and poor quality. Expensive for what it is. Friends not served meals together. Will not be going back.

A little away from the town centre , but handy if staying at the Imperial hotel , this restaurant is worth visiting. Although other reviews suggest poor service ours was very good/speedy and my only negative comment would be that the decor could do with an update. As regards the food itself no complaints at all and reasonably priced.

My friends and I always visit the Golden Dragon when we're in Exmouth. The food is very good, the staff are always friendly and polite and the restaurant offers quite good value. The menu is fairly diverse and I would definitely recommend the Crispy Duck. No matter what time we go there there's always plenty of space and the only... More
