Moved to the area recently and looked for a decent Chinese restaurant, glad to say that this place met my needs and the food was pretty authentic, definitely will try again and see how the other dishes compare.

Chinese takeaways are very much a subjective thing in my experience - what one man loves another may find so-so. This wasn't up there with the best for us but the food was freshly prepared, the service was fast and there was a nice variety on the menu which allowed us to choose some dishes that we wouldn't normally order...

NOTE: I have been eating at this restaurant and takeaway since the year 2000 but I have noticed (I don't get takeaways that frequently) in recent years that its restaurant dining element closed and now it is solely a take-away established. Previous to this, I never noticed any difference to the taste or quality of the dishes when had in... More

We wanted a Chinese takeaway but were fed up with the one in Bedale. We were recommended The Dragon Inn Chinese Takeaway in Ripon Market Place. We were greeted with a smile and given menus to look at. We picked the set meal for 4 but amended the king prawn dish to Kung Po Char Su. It was not expensive... More

Had a couple of take away meals from here last week, nothing fancy, Chicken with pineapple and Chicken chop suey. Truly terrible is the best way to describe it, looked awful, the word 'Gloop' springs to mind, and I can confirm it tasted no better. Ate bits of it and the rest was binned. Should have taken it back, but... More

First evening in Ripon - walked in with friends expecting a restaurant as the name suggests only to be told it's only a takeaway! We walked out and ate somewhere else that night. However last night got a takeaway. Staff were helpful and efficient as 10 of us all ordered separately. Portions were big, tasty and reasonably priced - meal... More

Good food and good service . We use this takeaway on a regular basis and it's certainly the best in Ripon. Staff are always friendly and food never takes long

We ordered: Sesame prawn toast- dripping with oil and less than 1mm prawn topping King prawn Szechuan style - this was prawns in a thick soupy mess resembling minestrone soup. The vegetables looked and tasted like the tiny chopped tinned veg NOT the bamboo shoots, onions, ginger etc. you would expect. Kung Po beef- tasteless lurid maroon sauce with lots... More

My wife and I ate here last Sunday (28th June) early evening. Service was first class, food excellent and plentiful. Great value too. Do try the honey roast pork - it's superb. The shared starter was very good in terms of content and value. Give it a try!

I would give this restaurant two stars for the size of its portions and friendly staff, but really this was one of the worst Chinese meals I've eaten in a long time. The fillet steak, the chicken chow mien and the pork satay all arrived swamped in an identical, very bland gravy. You could not taste satay sauce at all.... More
