“Wonderful treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Very few places in India where you have truly Chinese food. Mostly the food is customised to extreme levels to suit the Indian palate. Thankfully, the Golden Dragon tries to keep the recipes authentic and has delicious food to offer. My husband and I love to do a starter and dessert routine here. They have a variety of dimsums (Steamed and fried) and by the time you have tried a couple, you are ready for some of their lovely dessert. The Green apple Tiramisu and Mango pudding are worth a mention. It works well if you have some of their jasmine tea through the meal. They have very few seats near the window, so it would work well if you make a reservation before you go. The staff are very efficient and make your entire meal comfortable and worthwhile. They agree to do up your table with extra flowers if it's a birthday and their meal recommendations are spot on.

“Not as Good as it used to be !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Visited this place yesterday with my wife for lunch. Visited here the first time after it was renovated. The decor and ambience is simply amazing, but the food was strictly ok. There are many other Chinese restaurants where we can get better food.

We ordered one soup, one starter and one main course with mix non-veg fried rice. Would like to mention that all the food served to us was not as hot as it should be, don't know if their kitchen is a bit far away !! We had visited this place in November 2008 and it was amazing at that time.

Now I feel, something seems to be lacking somewhere. The service though is impeccable and staff are the veteran old Taj people, extremely polite and efficient.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

It was a business meeting, and a quick lunch. The food was amazing. The Golden Fried Prawn was just superb, this not to say the other food we ordered was anything less.

Ambience, service excellent.

For a foodie, this is a place to visit. In my opinion at the top of the table for Chinese in Mumbai.

A bit pricey though.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

There's that certain "I don't know what" about the restaurant. The food is fantastic and the service top notch. You know you are at the Taj.
Very very pricey but somehow it seems worth it when you exit. Absolutely love the place!
