My husband and I dropped in here on a Saturday night a half hour before closing time. It was crowded but they found a table for us. While waiting for our table we chatted with another couple in the lobby who had been there many times before. They assured us we would have a delicious meal, and they weren't kidding!... More

We went and were disappointed as they had terrible service even though the restaurant was empty and only average food for the price. The waiter didn't check in with us at all. We had to walk up to the front and ask for water. Last, they charged us for something we never received. Because of this we probably won't be... More

When staying overnight in Cambria, we found our dining options limited. We tried take out from the Dragon Bistro and were underwhelmed. I had vegetarian fried rice (there weren't many gluten free vegetarian options) and my sister had cashew chicken. Both needed more seasoning. The woman who took our order on the phone was not helpful, but in person she... More

Had an early dinner there one night of our stay. We had skipped lunch, and were wandering around the town, and came across this restaurant tucked away on Center Street. I had Mu-Shu Chicken, and my husband had some type of seafood dish. Very good food, plenty of it, and very good service. We would absolutely return.

Our group of four couples decided to try Dragon Bistro for dinner, and we are very pleased we did. Our reservation was for 7:00 pm on Saturday evening, and we were greeted and seated promptly on arrival. My wife and I had had DB's take-out on a previous trip to Cambria, and remembered the food as being quite good. We... More

We are locals and have eaten here since they opened and WERE pleased with the quality and service, especially for our little village. However, we took our grandchildren here last night, after not visiting for 6 months, and were SOOOO DISAPPOINTED in the some of the food and especially the service. Our fried shrimp was unbelievably small (probably 3 times... More

We stopped by Dragon Bistro for lunch after a long hike at Hearst Beach up the road. We were very pleased and surprised at such a great lunch in such a great little restaurant. The service was great and the food was more than enough. I would recommend the Dragon Bistro anytime.

Just visited on our one night stay in Cambria. Delicious food, good service and reasonable price. What's not to like? Our selection included Salt & Pepper Shrimp, Black Bean Chicken and Sweet and Sour Chicken with rice. Plentiful portion sizes. Were we in the area again we'd definitely return.
