We arrived at our hotel after driving 10 hours and welcomed some exercise while looking for a place to have dinner. Dragon was recommended by our hotel and we set out for some exercise (and food). Husband has a voracious appetite, and although food there is tapas, we ate well. Every bit. Husband ordered quite a variety of sushi/sashimi/dumplings and... More

They serve a wide selection of Asian dishes which you can share with your companions. Services is helpfull and friendly and prices are reasonable. Location is average but convenient. It is not far from the Vondelpark west side. Parking can be a problem.

Friends invited me here as an alternative to the pricy Japanese restaurants in the Hotel Okura. I had few expectations and as you enter the restaurant itself is unprepossessing. The menu is a pan-Asian affair which can be scary but was immaculate. Everything we ate was delicious, delicate and beautifully plated. Couldn't be more positive about the experience. Highly recommended... More

We went to this restaurant based on the excellent rating on TripAdvisor. The food quality is ok but far from being outstanding. Imagine a sushi place that offers only two kinds of sashimi; salmon and tuna! Exactly! That was a disappointment for a sushi junkie like myself. To add insult to injury, we ordered szechuan chicken wings and we got... More

We have been here a few times now and everything on the menu brings you (back) to an Asian country. Dishes are made with love and the staff is relaxed & professional.

As a family of three, we did visit this restaurant without reservation and that wasn't a problem. The dishes were served at a pleasant pace and the wine was at the right temperature. The dish we really can recommend is the chicken with mango. Will visit again!

Dragon I an nice place to have a food sharing dinner, a popular concept in many Amsterdam trendy restaurants. We were attended by a charmant Karin, who efficiently consulted us through the menu with all tasty Asian dishes. We spend a good evening here and can defenitely recommend this restaurant as a must do. Price/quality is in perfect balance.

We tried the Dragon I, when we visited Amsterdam for a weekend. The reervation did not work, nevertheless the service arranged a great table after 5 minutes of wait for us. The food is not cheap, but simply amazing! You should definately try the beijing duck!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Asian tapas which was delicious, easy to order and with great service including sensible advice on navigating the menu. We walked in for the first meal but then failed later in the week to get a table so definitely recommend booking. Best dining experience we had in our trip to Amsterdam.
