We ordered tack-out on-line which was very easy to do. The order was ready soon after we ordered. The Crab Rangoon was delicious. Happy Family and the Hot & Sour soup were both good. The Chicken with Snow Peas was OK but quite bland and...the Egg Rolls were not very good at all.More

The food wasn't terrible, just really bland. The hot sour was not hot or sour. A couple of things were pretty good, but overall just OK. I don't need to go back.

Five brothers and sisters visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening about 7:00 PM. This must have been shortly after the buffet quarantine was lifted, as the buffet line was open. We were promptly seating at a table for 8, in a room that was...mostly empty. They had another dinning area, but maybe less room for my wheelchair there. I suspect maybe 20-30 patrons in that area. The waitress appeared promptly to take drink orders. We all chose water, so that was simple for her. I asked if I could order off the menu, and she said the buffet was a much better choice in terms of selection and quantity. So we all chose buffet, for a little less than $10 each. We then proceeded to the buffet and started exploring. There are three double sided steam tables, probably about 12 feet long each, and a desert and another small table. Typical buffet, one wants a little of everything, but the plate and stomach on holds so much. I managed to key in on the shrimp dishes and found about 6-7 different ones. Plus chicken and pork. You will not be disappointed in the selections or presentation of the dishes. The second trip thru the line was picking some new items and deserts. We all agreed that hunger was no longer an issue for us and vowed to do this one again.More

This restaurant was close to my hotel, so I gave it a try. The food was flavorful with a lot of choices. My waitress made my night. She was so cheerful and on point.

This is our go-to restaurant in Jefferson City! Although I am not a local, I live very close to the capital city and find myself in this city a lot! This restaurant ALWAYS has really good, hot food with a lot of interesting varieties and...combinations! The restaurant is relatively small, but I am always comfortable even during the busy days! The service is good, it is not the best, but they try their hardest and I can appreciate that! Sometimes, I feel like they are almost nervous to come up to us, but they are all quite nice once they get to know you and get to see your face! I will keep coming back, for sure!More

It is a typical Chinese buffet place. That being said, the food was good. Seemed fresh but they were busy so the food turned over pretty quickly. I particularly liked the black pepper shrimp and beef w/broccoli; also the peel-and-eat shrimp was fresh and firm....Wife thought the coconut shrimp was tasty. All-in-all a pretty good experience. We will be back.More

My son likes this place so the last time we were in town he requested we stop here. I wasn't sure about it but ended up being pleasantly surprised. We both had the buffet and the food was really good. Service was good too. Probably...not my first pick but would go back.More

Place has a bunch of good reviews, and i dont get it. Ive been to about 15 oriental food buffets and a few restaurants and this is without question , by far, the worst one ive ever been to. We went because i thought it...was another location of the one in Fulton and that one is good. Before the wife became diabetic we ate at the one in Fulton twice a month for years. This place is apparently unrelated. It is horrible. Lousy food, dried out old food, normally at a buffet i dont care for alot of the food choices but there are usually 4 or 5 things i really like so thats what i eat. I walked the line at this place 3 times and there was nothing. Dried out old food, mostly empty bins (it wasnt busy at all). Told the wife i'd be in the car and left. Guy at the door tried to charge me. I told him i wasnt paying, i didnt eat anything, because there was nothing worth eating and almost half the bins were basically empty. Wife was 2 mins behind me. She paid him $5 and said feel lucky youre getting this much, cuz this is garbage -- theres no food and what little there is shouldve been thrown away 2 hours ago. You wanna eat there -- go ahead. I wont -- ever again.More

Dragon Kitchen is great for ordering off the menu or for the wonderful buffet. The buffet to go option is really helpful too! Sometimes life doesn't allow going in and sitting down to enjoy the buffet. I sometimes get the buffet for myself, sometimes to...take to family members when life gets hectic.More

While there are several Chinese restaurants in Jefferson City, the Dragon Kitchen is considered by most people to be the best in town. You can order from the menu, but one look at the huge buffet will have you going to the buffet. The food...is continually refreshed and there are many new items that you haven't seen on a previous visit. It may look small from the outside, but they have an additional large seating area off from the buffet. It is attractively decorated with quaint Chinese paintings and carvings. We will go back.More

PROS: plenty of parking and seating inside; great price, good taste. Different chicken dishes and a couple of shrimp entrees were my favorite. Great service. CONS: none . perfect if you crave Chinese food.

Just your typical Chinese buffet restaurant. The waitress was nice and spoke good English. The Sunday buffet was priced at 9.75 which is a good value considering it was all you can eat. The outside of the restaurant looked quite rundown but the inside was...nice and clean. Not our favorite but we would try again. (The spring rolls were excellent!)More
