“Reliable take out place in Needham”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

While it isn't perfect, China Dragon is definitely reliable, the kind of take-out place where you stick to your tried-&-tested favorites because they're guaranteed to taste the same each and every time. Service is pretty quick, too. This place has saved dinner for us on days when I'm too tired or busy to cook.

Our favorites? The boneless barbecue pork, the mixed vegetables and their beef with scallions and onions.

“Fast, easy, tasty take-out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Dragon Chef is terrific for fast easy takeout. There is a huge menu and the food is cooked quickly to order. You can watch the activity in the kitchen through a window in the waiting area. There are no tables for dining in - this is strictly takeout. On the early evening I stopped by they were very busy with pickups of phone orders, including obvious regulars. The food was good quality and well-cooked. An easy, tasty choice for Chinese takeout!

“great Chinese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Dragon Chef is my family's favorite Chinese food. Sometimes friends
will order from somewhere else and it's never as good. One place
in Chestnut Hill was at least 3 times the price and I didn't like it
nearly as much as Dragon Chef.

“Ordinary Take-out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We only went here once. It is very greasy. They claim to be the open kitchen in New England. I don't know if that is a good thing.
