Food was mediocre at best.Asked for some water and got a 2 litre bottle. I later realised this was not an upsell, but something to help the food slip down. The waitress spent most the time talking with a friend about her daughter and her impending ballet classes and there was no atmosphere. I would not return for all the... More

The Greyhound pub has morphed into the Dragon Inn and we couldn't resist a trip. The big plus points are freshly cooked food (oozing taste and care in preparation) and a cozy excellent service. It is a family run restaurant where pride in their food seems to be to the fore of all that is done. If you ask nicely... More

After reading the reviews on here. My husband and I decided to give this a go last week. We ordered for a take away as we were both exhausted from work. I called to place my order (on a thursday) where I was advised by the lady on the phone that they normally do not deliver to Letchworth but because... More

Dear Karen B, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I have consulted with the staff concerned and she confirmed that she did indeed inform you of the £3 delivery charge because it was at least 6 miles each way from our restaurant to Letchworth. Our menu clearly stated that we provide free delivery within a 3... More

I have no idea why this place is rated so highly. I went on the basis of the rave reviews. There was nothing wrong with the place and the service was very friendly and attentive. However, the food was not any different to a bog standard Chinese takeaway. Nothing interesting, exceptional or inventive. Perfectly ordinary. I wonder if it is... More

Dear Anita D, Thank you for taking the time to write the review. I am very sorry to learn that you found our food ordinary. We like to think that we are different to other Chinese restaurants in that we do not use the flavour enhancer Monosodium Glutamate. We also operate on a cook to order basis to guarantee freshness.... More

Chosen due to Trip Adviser ranking, the building/decor belies the eating experience. Food was superb and the service was good. We also had the pleasure of magic tricks at the table. The tricks were as amazing as the food! Thank you for the experience.

We stopped for an unplanned visit last Sunday afternoon. The food was fantastic and so was the service. The views are gorgeous. All in all a great meal, but the decor lets it down a little bit, so not really a place you could go for a special treat.

Having read glowing reports, and looking for a good Chinese takeaway, we drove across town to the Dragon Inn. It was early evening, so the restaurant was empty. We gave our order, and had a friendly chat with the proprietor. Food arrived in due course, and off we went home. Good portions - no complaints there, but, sorry to say,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry to learn that you were disappointed with your take-away order. We understand that people have different preferences when it comes to flavourings as we get requests to either be heavy or light with chillies.
