Imperial Dragon is the only restaurant in the area I go to for Chinese food. Food is always freshly made. Great service. Take out for two is enough for dinner for two days! Reasonably priced.

Enjoyed my hot and sour soup and shrimp crisps to start. Sweet and sour shrimp rings were excellent as was the fried rice Mustard was smoking hot and tasty Egg roll was crispy and delicious with a fortune cookie to finish up. Good service too

Stopped for a quick lunch. Ordered sweet and sour shrimp combination. Egg roll, Hot and sour soup, pork fried rice. Hot tea and shrimp chips on the side. Had my food within a couple of minutes of sitting down. Start to finish 30 minutes. This was good as I was under some time constraints. All the food was steaming hot... More

Food was somewhat bland and looked plopped on our plates like a prison cafeteria. The carpet was not only drab but looked filthy. The lady server drove us nuts zipping around us constantly, talking fast and not bringing us things we asked for in a timely manner. What really set it over the top was the sound of a heated...

We have been frequenting this establishment for YEARS and will no longer waste our time or money due to POOR SERVICE. Last week I placed one order to go, placing the order was a hassle. When we went to pick it up, my wife waited five minutes, no acknowledgment whatsoever while she watched her order cool off. She returned to... More

Not knowing the Chin family had nothing to do with this restaurant, I asked a Chinese gentleman if he was one of the Chin's. He rudely said no and walked off quickly. From what I understand the menu has changed a little and the food is not quite as good as when the Chin's grandson owned it. I will say... More

Visiting friends in this area who brought us there for some local flavor. Greeting not very friendly for someone looking for your business. Our male server was superb. he was prompt attentive and not overshadowing. Food was good, hot and plentiful..

One of my favorite places for Chinese food and especially soup, a head-clearing antidote for a long drive.

I have been coming here for years. I must admit thought every once in a while the food can be hit or miss. It really does depend on who is cooking. The food on rare occasion may be a bit bland for my taste buds, but for the most part they are pretty consistent and I like the food. Most... More

We have been going to ImperiL Dragon for several years and usually enjoy the experience- food and service. Last night we were very disappointed! We usually order the dinner for 2. Since my husband cannot eat shellfish, we request that the appetizer not contain any shrimp. We have always gotten extra ribs in place of the shrimp, with no problems.... More
