Very large room but not too noisy on a Sunday lunch. It was very nice to pick some dim sum in the carts when they pass by. Was very good. We also had good noodles and vegetables I would return!

I really enjoyed the dim sum here. The restaurant was extremely clean and the staff was friendly. We wen ton the weekend so that we could have cart service. The only knock I can give is that the food on the carts wasn't as hot as I would have like but overall it was great. I will definitely be going... More

The food at this place is great. The decor at this place is good. However, the parking lot and general condition of the mall is like a scene out of Blade Runner.

We went to dragon court today. The staff is very nice. She is so friendly. She told us that they have a dim sum car on weekends. The food is very good. The restaurant is nice and big but the Asia mall looked so dirty. I recommend this restaurant.

For starters, I had a bit of trouble finding this place as it's inside of a mall and sort of hidden. Since I ordered takeout, it made it a little more interesting to find! I'm glad I did - even though it was "hidden" I would classify it as a hidden gem! Very good for a local, simple Chinese restaurant.... More

First of all, you have to go inside the old, run-down mall then go to the far right and you'll find Dragon court alive and well in the corner. I have some very picky friends, and this is the only Chinese restaurant they like. Excellent fried rice! Very good General Tso's. I have liked a lot of the other things... More

We don't always make it to Dragon Court and miss it when we don't. Inside the Asian Mall on N. Tryon this is a large long running family restaurant. The locals favor it for banquets and partys. They have excellent dim sum brunch and menu selections. This is a Chinatown real deal.

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in the Queen city. Why? because is authentic! I love Dim Sum carts=very good selection. The duck is outstanding. Yes, it's located in a seedy old dump of a shopping mall, but it's worth avoiding all the potholes and homeless people in the parking lot. Large restaurant with plenty of seating. Staff is friendly.... More

OK. The location leaves a lot to be desired but once you're in the restaurant you'll forget about everything because the journey is worth it. We came for lunch and it was not busy, which sometimes isn't a good thing because that's usually a gauge as to how good is the food. But here it's not the case. I ordered... More

Like most truly Asian restaurants (e.g. Chinatowns around the country), it is located in a run-down plaza on the outskirts of downtown Charlotte. But it really is a hidden gem, as people driving by would not stop. The restaurant is quite large (holds probably 200 people) so will not seem busy on weekdays. Food is reasonably priced and authentic Chinese--a... More
