We have been here many times over a number of years and have yet to be disappointed. Food is superb, plenty of it, piping hot and it always looks appealing. Price is reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Owner and staff could not be more helpful, pleasant and very welcoming.

We have visited the Dragon a couple of times now. This time it was very busy. The tables very close together, a party sat at my right side and had no way to get out other than the person on the end moving which resulted in having people up and down all evening and standing right next to where I...

The second is the staff - they are so friendly & helpful. Alan the owner is so lovely, he remembers us each time and always treats us well. Personal favourites... More

We visited The Golden Dragon on recommendation, however, we found it to be over priced and cramped. Wouldn't say it was anything special and wouldn't return. Despite the price and setting, the food was ok.

Came here on a Saturday for the first time after great word of mouth. Well the word of mouth was not wrong. Great quality of food in a really relaxing, authentic experience. The place has a lovely atmosphere. In terms of food, we had the Dim Sum for 2 which was a nice platter of different foods (Ribs, seaweed etc)... More

I have to say we had a lovely meal. My friend and I had the set meal B for 2 (which we changed a bit as you do!) We visited on a Weds evening, having prebooked, as last time the restaurant was busy, and it was the same this time, this place is clearly very popular. The food was excellent... More

I have eaten here on several occasions. Usually we gave good service and good food, on the last two visits we have been very disappointed. It's a shame it was so good. Disappointed

Went here on a birthday treat for our mum which was very nice with the only issues being an overcharge on the bill & poor quality sweet & sour chicken. I have just checked the prices again on line as of 12.48 on 15/05/16 & we were charged £ 93.95 & the bill should have been £85.95 so £8 difference... More
