“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The owner was great. Welcomed us personally and took us through the menu and helped us order the right amount of food which we of course polished. Food was very tasty and we loved the speed at which it came to our table

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

As Chinese places go in Arusha, this is by far the best. Competitively priced and cool inside. Worth a visit.

“Still an excellent place to eat true Chinese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Visited the Chinese Dragon again before we left Arusha and it was still as good as we have known it to be. Excellent authentic Chinese food with a friendly bunch of waiters and owner. If you enjoy Chinese food then this is definately the place to go.

“sooo good food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Im glad to see the Dragon on TA. And Im so sorry I did not write anything through all these years. Im a regular (if 2-3 times per year counts) and everytime Im in Arusha I eat there, sometimes a couple of evenings in a row. Why? Because its difficult to find good asian food in Tanzania. (Except at Hyatt Kilimanjaro in Dar). The food is what we are coming there for, but I also like the simple layout and style in the whole place. Makes it just real.
I go there with friends and business partners and we order the table full of different stuff, and we slow-eat until everything is finished.
The menu is very big, and some of the dishes are a bit similar, but the quality is always the same. I cant pick out a single dish which I would favour, but the sizzling dishes are very good.
Its located in centre a bit off the busy streets and you can easily spend a long evening eating the hours away. No complaints on the prices either.... So, soon Im back (in 2 weeks). YES!!
