“Incredible food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

A great find in the CV. Linda, the owner is just the loveliest person you will meet. Try the Hot and Sour soup, which is quite possible the best I have ever had. Shrimp Egg Foo Yung was also very well prepared, Cordial owners, and reasonable prices. True, it is small, but if you have to have teak panel ing, giant foo dogs, and dancing fountains, go to the P F Chang's near the mall. The food will not surpass this place. The only thing that P F Chang's will surpass is the charge on your AMEX. Highly recommended for quality of food and reasonable prices.

“Execllent Chinese Food in the Palm Springs Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Dragon King is an excellent, little restaurant for people who enjoy good Chinese food. There are about 5 booths each seating 4 people, and 4 or 5 tables for one along the opposite wall. It's a pleasant, though small space.

We enjoyed the Moo Shu Pork that was wrapped for us at the table, Curry Chicken that had plenty of chicken in it in addition to onions, green peppers, and carrots, and the Orange Beef that was tasty but certainly not healthful with fried beef and lots of sugar.
We wanted to try the Orange Beef and would pick a more healthful item next time. Broccoli served with the Orange Beef was so fresh and perfectly cooked that I'd have ordered that broccoli as a separate item.

The food at Dragon King is very fresh, generous in portion size, quite reasonable in price, and prepared and served by extremely friendly and appreciative owners.

I don't believe that there are very many good Asian restaurants in the Palm Springs area, and most are substandard in my opinion. I'm from San Francisco where good Chinese food is easy to obtain, so finding a good Chinese restaurant in the desert is worth noting.

Dragon King is excellent and deserves 5 stars.
