Been here three times now. Food has been mostly very good with a couple of average examples. The host makes it a unique place to visit as he does magic tricks at your table! A bit expensive but worth it.

We get a delivery from Dragon Inn at least a couple of times a month. Consistently lovely food, freshly cooked and delivered promptly. I love the fact that my King Prawns with Ginger and Spring Onion has big slices of fresh ginger and no MSG is used in their cooking. Fab!

Well first visit to this place, and it was so lovely I thought I would take a little time in writing a review. Such a warm friendly atmosphere, the manager went out of his way to meet and greet us, and some magic tricks along the way, made our visit that little more special. Food was perfect, all in all...

After reading the reviews I was really looking forward to a tasty meal but I was very disappointed. My starter was BBQ spare ribs, the meat was very dry, tough and without flavour, a warm source was poured over them rather than the ribs being cooked in the sauce. My main was Cha Siu Pork with egg fried rice, the... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and have always thoroughly enjoyed the food and the friendly service. There is a varied menu and the food is always beautifully presented. We have taken friends and family there and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. There is also an excellent take away service.

Me, my husband and our 3 teenage children were all very pleased that we found this lovely little restaurant. The staff were very nice, the food was presented to a high standard and tasted great. We had an enjoyable evening, and was pleasantly entertained with some magic tricks from the Manager . Would definitely recommend, can't wait to go back.

I went here recently with the family for Dad's 60th birthday. I had never been here before (in fact, i don't think any of us had), but I loved it. The whole experience was excellent.
