food was terrible and husband saw them pull it out of microwave... husband vomited for an hour because he knows... he has a lap band and if food is not fresh it gets stuck which the only way to dislodge stuck food is to vomit.......place has gone down hill.... sometimes the food has zero taste and I find myself having to doctor it up ( soy sauce hot mustard sweet and sour sauce )...... its an irritation to pay for fresh food to have it no be fresh... its like buying something when you probably should have cooked at home but you have a taste for something you cant make and the cost is high and its microwaved when advertising a fresh meal..... DISAPPOINTING!!!! never will go back rather go to Asuka or Japonee or China Wok.... I will not be referring ya'll to anyone I will give my opinion of bad food and if they still try ya'll hopefully it will be better that the crap you served my husband.....More

Flavorless mai fun, no mushrooms in hot and sour soup, shrimp roll over cooked, overpriced. They used to have good vegetable items but even if you add extra there aren’t extra. Lame flavor -

Living an hour away, I would come to Bloomington on Saturdays to shop with my mom. We always stopped here to get Chinese to take home. I continued to eat here as a college student, and just recently moved back after 16 years. I was...so happy to see that Dragon Chinese was still here! I order crab Rangoon wherever it’s served, and this is still my favorite place to get it! General Tsaos is excellent- and our order is always ready fairly quickly! Best place for takeout Chinese! FOREWARNING- Dragon Chinese is STILL cash/check only!! If you never carry cash, plan ahead!!More

Since the new owners took over I don't like this place much any more. Their recipes have changed for the worse. Just not very good any more. I found several bones in my General Tso's chicken. This is the first time ever I couldn't eat...all my food from there. When the other people owned it, it was my favorite place...Not So anymore. My husband likes the beef fried rice better, but so far I haven't found anything I like better.More

Americanized Chinese take-out. Really good, cheap food. Staff isn’t super friendly but still good and effective

I wanted so badly to like this place. I rarely even do reviews, but after getting a sick as my husband and I did, I wanted to write one. Their menu shows a no MSG symbol on it. If you call and ask if they...use MSG, they will tell you that they do not. So I placed an order and went to pick it up. At pick up I double-checked one last time that there was no MSG as I'm very sensitive to it and get very sick. The guy looked uncomfortable, but said it does have MSG in almost all of it. He said the only thing that they have that does not have MSG is rice and playing me. All of their sauces and all of their fried rices are pre-made and therefore all have really large amounts of MSG. I got the food with plain white rice and plain meat and my husband had regular food. We were both sick for a couple of days. I had horrible headaches and nausea as I've only had a couple of times in my life from really bad MSG. My husband has never been sensitive to it before, but also got sick even though he had a very different dish. It was very disappointing for a place that had good takeout reviews. We're not hard to please, but I'm not okay getting sick from my food. Also, just as an FYI, they only take cash or checks. The kitchen was not particularly clean and no one there was very nice either.More

CASH/CHECK ONLY ... but this sure doesn’t seem to deter customers! Amazing General Tso’s chicken. There is ACTUAL CHICKEN and not just a ton of breading. Prices are cheaper than other takeout locations in Btown, too. I only go to Dragon for takeout now because...it is so delicious. Interior atmosphere is nothing special, I don’t recommend dining in-house, but they do offer seating for those wanting to grab a quick bite on the go.More

First visit there based on posative reviews. It was good but nothing special. We had the sweet and sour chicken, it was the best thing, but it tasted the same as all other restaurants around Bloomington. The General's chicken was not good at all. No...spice to it like usual recipes and the sauce was very much a ketchup taste. I couldn't even eat it. The Crab Rangoon was probably the best of the things we ordered, but not enough to make me want to return.More

Had been craving Chinese for over a month and read the reviews. As this is right off of I69 and had shops nearby I wanted to visit we chose this place. Don't let it deceive you the food is great and freshly made! We ended...up each taking over half our meals here me and I also ordered food to go for lunches next week! I'll defiantly be stopping back on travels between Indy and home and will probably make the drive up again just for this!More

Does NOT take credit cards. BRING CASH. If you can overlook that anything you get here is good. Fast, cheap and delicious. They have lunch and dinner "plates", egg rolls are divine and the rangoons are also amazing.

We are in town for softball. I had a taste for Chinese. I read the reviews and decided to give it a shot. Reviews were pretty spot on. The inside isn't much, just tables and chairs, really. I ordered to go. I read it takes...about 10 minutes and yes, my order was ready in 10 minutes. It was piping hot and very tasty. I ordered the pint Hunan chicken and a side egg roll. I enjoyed both. Ladies at front desk were very friendly. I definitely recommend it.More
