This IS worth a visit. Lovely food

Having read some of the reviews there was some trepidation about visiting this place. They were not necessary. The food we had was excellent and the service was good. The décor (well the lights) reminded me of how turn of the century China is portrayed in older films. I certainly wouldn't call it... read more

the best part of the night was the service. the food was mediocre, the decor was very outdated, there was ceiling tiles coming away from the ceiling and i wouldn't advise going into the bathroom! the overall experience wasn't great.

Very nice but overall impression is dated. Decor and menu could do with freshening up. Given the competition in the area it was quite expensive for what it was.

Please excuse the pun, but this was a really good evening with excellent service from the time we walked in, to when we walked out. Comfortable seating for the four of us, not too close together and the food and drinks options had some really good choices. We had a mixture of fish, chicken, beef and shellfish with subtle and...

Visited on several occasions when in the area. Great food, peaceful and welcoming. On this occasion it was a birthday treat and we really enjoyed Spare ribs with sauce as a starter. Open plan style which we liked. Visited at 6pm when it was quiet.

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, despite several discussions about what... 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
