“Roast Duck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

I was standing outside CAU contemplating whether to try its steaks but my stomach craved for something soupy. So I thought I'd just get a simple bowl of noodle soup at this quaint Chinese place across the road.

The menu boards outside shouted all their tourist meal deals like all other small establishments. Not a turn on for me but a simple bowl of noodle soup was all I wanted.

Told the waitress to get me a bowl of noodle soup with her favorite topping. Roast Duck with vermicelli soup came. As is tradition, I tasted the soup 1st. Bland. OK, maybe it wasn't a good idea. Then I tried the duck, a generous serving that covered the bowl. Wow! Crispy skinned and tender meat. It was Zhang Cha flavored. A special smoky styled preparation. Think Hickory smoked to get the idea. It is usually something they will proudly announce, but here its just Roast Duck. This dish is normally served with plain rice so as not to take away from the strong yet complex flavor of the duck. This explained the bland vermicelli soup. Put together, it flavored the soup and softened the intensity of the Zhang Cha. PERFECTION! The trick is I guess to have a little of everything at the same time. Or to enjoy the skin 1st before it goes soggy, then infuse the soup with the rest of Duck.

If they called this Just Roast Duck, think how understated the rest of their menu must be.

BTW I didn't once see a grumpy reaction face on the staff's face. All smiles all the time to everyone.

“Better value than China Town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

We were struggling to find a decent Chinese for good value. The ones in China Town and just up the road from here were over priced. We found Dragon City advertising much cheaper food so thought we would give it a try! Small place with the option to sit upstairs if it gets full downstairs. I thought the decor inside was cute and seeing Chinese tourists/locals eating there speaks volumes! We ordered from friendly staff who were more than happy to help. We shared a plate of Singapore Vermicelli and a plate of Cantonese Fried Rice, both at €10 each which is nearly half the price of some other places. The mini spring rolls were good too, oh and the prawn crackers tasted so authentic and fishy mmm!! Great food, nice atmosphere. Please try this is you want Chinese in the Dam!!

“Quick food that tastes good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Had the lunch time special of curry rice spring rolls a salad, cost 11euro each price was good food was good but part of me believes its already plated up and goes in the microwave food only took a couple of mins. My girlfriend and I had the same and hers was warm and mine piping had it be cooked together And plaited together should be the same temperature. But still tasted ok. In and out with in about 30 mins but if you after a quick lunch ideal
