Surprisingly OK!

Was a bit dubious about ordering a takeaway, having read the other reviews, but they picked up their phone on the 2nd ring (unlike the Chinese takeaway in Bedale who didn't answer at all - on a Saturday night) and the food was really quite alright. Had read other reviews about lack of flavour but... read more

Three of us visited and we had 1/4 Crispy duck and the set meal for three. The food was excellent and the service was good and attentive with humour. there was too much food. We had a very decent wine and the bill was a pleasant surprise ( low). A good evening we shall return.

While I waited for my order, both the restaurant and takeaway were busy. Takeaway customers seemed to be locals and a few were recognised by staff. This should have been a good sign, but the food I bought (8 meals, not all for me!) was slimy and lacking in taste. Some of the textures were odd, especially the chicken. Portions... More

What a completely dreadful meal, possibly the worse takeaway I have ever eaten. No credit or debit facilities, horrible food, most of it uneatable. Even worse than the décor and the food was the service from the women behind the counter, don't think she had ever heard of customer service. Save your money and just go to the co op... More

Had a very nice mean in this restaurant, a very very basic chinese menu that is very western but I suspect that is ok for the region. Nice food anyway and friendly service!

This is for the Leyburn restaurant. No credit or debit card facilities. Bland food. Awful decor. Dirty stinking toilets, the gents hand towel paper is on a roll about 7 foot high! Saturday night and only 2 tables occupied. Says it all really. Only good thing were the 2 guys waiting and running reception, polite and attentive and tried their... More

The dragon inn, in Leyburn, NOT Ripon: The best Chinese around! I have converted my parents, friends and other family members from our local Chinese the Dragon inn. I have been here countless times and the food and service has always been spot on! Never had any complaints to make. Prices are reasonable and portion sizes are huge! Would recommend... More

Having just moved in down the road in Middleham, we fancied a Chinese and are glad we chose The Dragon Inn. WE had the banquet for two and asked if we could change the main courses to our choice. This was no problem. We had the starters which were piping hot and delicious followed by chilli beef and chicken with... More

The picture is not of the Dragon in Leyburn. Most of the reviews are of the Chinese in Ripon. You are showing bad reviews that are not for this restaurant .
