We've been going to Peking Dragon for many years, and still love the food and atmosphere. The Manager, Shane, does actually know everyone's name, and is always gracious, welcoming and funny. Favorites include the sizzling rice soup, garlic chicken, paper wrapped chicken, mu-shu pork, and Mongolian Beef. Parking tight, but worth the wait. It's a crowded madhouse on the weekends,... More

Visited the Peking Dragon for the first time with a group of about 30 people at 3 or 4 tables. The waiters managed to keep everything straight. Each couple ordered a dish or two for sharing so made the evening fun trying new things. All the dishes were very tasty and the service was excellent. Parking is adequate.

My boyfriend and I love Chinese food, and are not terribly picky, so it takes a lot to spoil Chinese for us. However, our 2 visits to Peking Dragon were awful. The food was tasteless and bland. We swore we wouldn't return a second time but decided to give it a second chance. Same result. We cannot recommend this restaurant.

The Peking Dragon is a delicious Chinese food restaurant. The owner always greets you when you arrive. They take reservations which is really nice since many restaurants don't anymore. They seat you immediately with a smile. The waiters are attentive. The food arrives at your table within 10 minutes hot and fresh. Best Chinese food I have ever had. You... More

Great place to eat in Dana Point. Love the Sweet and Sour Chicken and The Crab Ragoon appetizer. They also have a great shrimp and rice soup. Reasonable prices.

Peking Dragon is a Dana Point family run restaurant that has been in the area for years. Shane and his staff always provides high quality product with great service. It is a stop for many of my family members whenever they are in the area. Reasonably priced, with very good portions. Their menu has items that should satisfy everyone's needs.

We eat here regularly and get take home regularly as well. Last Friday night we needed a Peking Dragon Fix. Called and ordered and was told the order would be ready for pick up in 15 minutes. Fifteen minutes later I arrived at the front desk as my order arrived steaming hot. They always seem to be on time with... More

Peking Dragon has an upscale interior with food to match. Good service and quick delivery of the food. Menu could use a few more spicier dishes but that's our preference. We sampled 6 dishes between the 3 of us and were not disappointed in anything.

Peking Dragon is by far the best Chinese food ever sampled up and down the Orange County coast. Line table cloths, excellent service and a men chock full of delicious Asian entrees. Our absolute favorite!
