As a Ripon resident, I have eaten At all of the Chinese restaurants here and had their takeaways. Never been a fan of the Dragon's food, but our friends insisted on going as the decor is better than my favourite. Our party was 7 people. Had Half crispy duck to share as a starter. One meal each, two fried rice to share, two noodle and two drinks each. £133. That's £20 a head nearly. If the food was good, I wouldn't complain. portions at small, seems to be more gravy and veg than meat, sweet an sour sauce, I am sure would light up in the dark. Plenty of staff kicking around all busy on a Sat night, but I don't think one had a smile on their face, infect all looked grumpy. I didn't feel as if they appreciated our business, just happy, or un happy to throw food on table and take the money. There location dead in centre of town and decor is the only thing going for it. If the price reflected the meal, I would have marked higher. This review is for a Saturday night. If you eat at lunch time on Thursday and Friday, it's about £5 for a three course meal with tea or coffee. Now that great value and I would recommend. May have caught them on a bad night, but, come on, smile and show some gratitude.....oh, wife said wine was disgusting.
