our hotel recommended this restaurant along with others. we had a look and fancied trying it. we are glad we did as we had a great meal. if we had been staying a second night we would have returned the next night. most restaurants closed by 9pm but this one stayed open later and we were not rushed to finish...

We live in an area with an abundance of Asian restaurants, and this one was a disappointment. However, it was the only Chinese restaurant in Cambria. Food was ok and prices were average. The waiter (manager) was good.

Many lunches here--always hot and well-prepared. Fast service, positive staff attitudes. Big menu. Low prices for the quality and quantity provided.

There are very few restaurants open on Christmas Day in the San Simeon / Cambria area, so the choices are limited. We came here for an early dinner. The restaurant does not take reservations. We ordered soup and a couple standard entrees. All of our food was served lukewarm and it tasted just shy of okay. It wasn't terrible, but... More

I was not that impressed with the meals that we ordered at this Chinese restaurant. The beef that they use is a very thin type of beef similar to the beef used on Arby's sandwiches. That and that alone ruined our two beef dishes of beef fried rice and beef and snow peas. We did get egg rolls and the... More

Very regular Chinese restaurant. Nothing special, quite okay when it comes to dinner. I ate it because I ordered it and paid but probably I won't come back the next time.

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
