Best Chinese Buffet! Yum!!!

The Golden Dragon's lunch buffet is awesome! It's my favorite place to go for lunch. They have a great variety and all my favorite menu items included in it. The soup is wonderful, as well. I just keep coming back!

Wonderful service but uncomfortable setting! We were seated in front of the serving table that smelled like bleach. The water also has a slight bleach taste to it. I ordered orange chicken and it was rubbery but my husband ordered the pork lunch special and Mongolian Beef and it was delicious! The egg flower soup was delicious! I could not... More

Bestchinese food in Ellensburg. Like all places it has things to avoid but very few in my experience. Ellensburg does not have any chinese food that I would classify as great (not like in Seattle where great chinese food can be had anywhere). But considering the other options I would have to say that golden dragon is the best in... More

Golden Dragon is a reasonably good Chinese restaurant. We started with a very good hot and sour soup. We shared Szechuan tofu that was spicy and had a hot of vegetables as well as broccoli in a garlic sauce. Both were very good.

My family of five left Seattle around 4pm and we made it to Ellensburg by 7pm. We were looking for a good dinner with something other than burger/fries. I was very happy with the golden dragon - the food was tasty and the price was cheap. Under $30. I'd certainly stop by again.

I was driving past Ellensburg and decided to use Trip Advisor to pick where to go. The reviews of this place were great, so I decided to give it a chance. Huge mistake! There was no buffet (they only have it 3 days a week), and the "lunch" meal was $10 (which is pretty high....even for excellent Chinese takeout). It... More

All our entrees were nicely done. And it was a pleasure to watch an open kitchen, where dad was meticulously showing a young man (son?) how he was making all the dishes. That type of generational passage is usually not witnessed. High marks also go to our appetizers, which were very evidently all hand made. Heck, even the complimentary egg... More
