This was not the best Chinese food, but it was a great deal for what you received. Sadly, I have been told that they have closed. I will have to go by and see for myself.

Nothing very exciting. At best...average. Probably shouldn't bother to rate this place because I can't think of anything that excited me in our 1 or 2 visits to the place when we moved to Nipomo almost 6 years ago. Probably haven';t been here in 4 years. Just trying to fill up space since i must provide 100 characters.

The food is good - not super - but it offers an alternative to Mexican or fast food in Nipomo. I've been several time - never disappointed but never blown away either. The decor is typical Chinese-American - but the booths and it has a slightly shabby feel.

I think we may eat out too much! We usually order take out, only because I prefer to eat at home. We have lived in Nipomo now for 26 years and this restaurant (I don't know if it has changed hands throughout the years) has always been outstanding. The veggies are fresh, and everything is always super. The only negative... More

I was originally blown away by this restaurant when my wife and I moved here a few years ago. Since then we have tried many more dishes offered by the Golden Dragon restaurant and have not been as impressed. We love the chow mein, fried rice, and most of their meat dishes, however their vegetable dishes are not as good.... More

We had a hankering for Chinese food. The only one in Nipomo is this one. Rather than driving to AG or Santa Maria, we thought we'd give it a try. The service is friendly, but the kitchen is slow. Of the food we ordered, everything was more-or-less like we'd expected, except for the moo shoo pork. They came pre-wrapped. We... More

The Golden Dragon is one of the best Chinese eateries in the area. Great food, great service. The staff are all friendly and appear to enjoy serving you. We visit often and have never had a bad meal. We take all our visitors there also.

We moved to Nipomo three years ago from the San Jose area and have searched everywhere for good Chinese food from SLO to Santa Maria. We can't believe that the best we have found is the restaurant closest to home. The food and service here is fantastic. Ruby and Mary are the nicest and most efficient servers. We have become...

We've been going there for twenty years. The place looks the same and the food is very good. You get your money's worth. Friendly people. Probably our favorite Chinese restaurant. "Five happiness pork" is my favorite.
