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

I booked a table on the Friday night for four. The food and service were excellent. Although the restaurant decor does need an update. But it did not bother me much.I will certainly use it again.

I love a good Chinese; and I can't fault the food served at the Golden Dragon. But the service needs to be worked on. We had booked a table for 7.30 on a Friday night; we arrived at 7:20 and told the gentleman on the counter we had a reservation. He looked at his watch and remarked you are early... More

A family meal out great service and great food. Could not fault anything to do with the food or the service. Good value for money. We normally use the China Garden but have stopped since they do not take cards, not eaten here before but will be going again.

I have been using this restaurant for the last 25 years. I brought our friends in on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. The service and food were excellent. Highly recommended to everyone.

We ordered a takeaway for two people. Collected it 15 mins later as suggested and it was already sat out the front... Which meant it was already just warm rather than hot. Got it home and had boiled rice rather than the egg fried rice as ordered. Called to explain and they said we could go to collect some egg... More
