“Great Value and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We popped into the Dragon Inn on Christmas eve just on the off chance that they could fit us in and of course they found us a table.This restaurant has great staff, a good choice of buffet especially the crispy Duck and an excellent house wine as well as Chinese beer! It was as usual full of families enjoying a night out together in a lovely friendly atmosphere, this time it was just the two of us but we will be back with the family in the New Year.

“Agree with the comments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Sad the area almost looks derelict and perhaps with a new station currently being built that might be on the cards. The smells from the car park were the first good sign. Letting us in early also meant we had more time to enjoy. Staff very welcoming and attentive (even interrupting their own meal to serve us) and all the things we like to eat and I have a fussy family. Quality was excellent. As the previous reviewer said perhaps even more choice of a buffet but this will not stop me from going again and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

“Hmmm not bad … ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Went on the basis of the trip advisor reviews … staff were welcoming … food was on the good side of Chinese meals.

The range for a buffet was simply not there … with limited options for vegetarians and even 'chicken-centric' meat eaters not even having an option of sweet 'n' sour chicken … only pork?

So … okay … but not the perfect buffet. Sorry.

“Most boxes are ticked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

If you can do without plush carpet, lacquered furniture and other pseudo mandarin ornamentation, then this restaurant will put a big smile on your face. When it comes to service and value for money, it's hard to see how this place can be equaled. At such a reasonable price you may wonder: 'Where's the catch ?' Well, apart from the simple decor, there are one or two things deleted from the buffet, such as duck, beef and prawns, but all is not lost because all of this and more can be found on the main menu. There is however, plenty of chicken and pork in a variety of Chinese food manifestations. With a buffet choice of 8 starters and 11 main course dishes, there is ample choice for most people. In addition to that, dessert is included in the price. Drinks are of course extra and coffee is topped up for free.There are car parks either side of the restaurant. Would I go again ? You bet !

“Best Chinese Buffet in Medway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

I visited on a Sunday for lunch. The food was constantly being topped up even though it wasn't completely packed out. The food was beautiful and full of flavour. The lunch buffet was reasonably priced and I will definelty visit this restaurant again.
