It's an old place offering good Chinese food. The restaurant is operated by a Chinese family thus offering real Chinese food. The owners have not invested in the furnishing of the place and still using decades old furniture and crockery. Open kitchen at the front lets you see whats going on inside. Recommended if you are after authentic Chinese food.

Golden Dragon used to be the best Chinese Restuarant in Islamabad. Unfortunately the restaurant has lost its taste. The food is so bland now, most of the dishes don't taste anymore how they used to be. This is no longer the go to place for Chinese cuisine anymore

Visited Golden Dragon many times during past two years and in my view it is the best Chinese food available in Islamabad. Quality of cooking is very good and has a real Chinese flavour to it. Menu contains most of the popular Chinese dishes. Service is also good and it is operated by Chinese people. Decor and interior is average... More

Ok this was my go to spot in ISB and unfortunately my most recent visit was a bit of a disaster! The place was filthy and during our dinner a huge dirty cockroach jumped on to our table! My 6 yr old was in shock as was I! Although they moved us to another table no one bothered to apologise.... More

The interior decoration is not interesting but the food is original and tasty. Various soups are nice for the winter time. Different kind of hand-made noodles and side dish, Amazing choice for original chinese cuisine in Islamabad.

Golden dragon is probably the oldest Chinese restaurant in Islamabad . I offers very good Chinese food and is located in a very nice area of Islamabad . The decor is average but the food is good.

I have been visiting this restaurant since the past 25 years. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The food portions are excellent as well . With the traffic increasing because of the Chinese diaspora it is best to not visit on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday.

I have stopped visiting this restaurant. Once they allowed a drunk person to eat there and he made every one's life miserable. Second time the prawns were smelling. My mistake, shouldn't have ordered prawns in summers.
