Whilst on a break away we like to eat out nicely and love Chinese food. Myself and my wife really fancied a Chinese and I read the review on trip advisor about the golden dragon which was just up the hill from our hotel. I read the reviews and we thought we would go and we went in and a... More

Before we agreed to go, I checked Trip Advisor and had some concerns based on the varied reviews... My best friends own a local Chinese Take Away and I love their food which I've been enjoying for over 30 years and this makes me an absolute nightmare diner in any Chinese restaurant. However, the service was faultless, attentive, patient and... More

I went in for a meal with my family last weekend. The food was lovely especially Salt baked chicken. The portions are sufficient. The food came out pretty quick.All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

The worst meal my wife and I have had. The staff could not be bothered wether they served you or not. Once we ordered our meals we had to wait nearly an hour for it to arrive, however, those people ordering take away meals recieved their orders within 10 - 15 minutes. When the food finally arrived it was stewed... More

I went with my Grandson for a Chinese and had to wait around 30 minutes for a table. After getting seated we ordered a set menu for 2. After around 20 minutes we got our starter, enough for just 1 person. Then we waited and waited and when it was about 10.00pm we eventually got our main course and barely... More

The service was very slow and unprofessional but we gave them the benefit of the doubt, oh how wrong we're we!!!! I ordered my meal from the vegetarian menu (a clue for you!) And for my starter I ordered a veggie spring roll but I was given 2 chicken and prawn sprin g rolls, I was horrified and very upset... More

I find the Golden Dragon at the top of my list of Chinese restaurants I have visited. It's a lovely quiet place, good value for money, consistently good food with nice service and friendly waiters. This restaurant is great for families and couples. The restroom facilities are in good clean condition. The decor is a little faded but besides that... More

We went to the Golden dragon for a family birthday meal for my wife and her brother (with their parents and our 1yr old son). I have never been to a Chinese restaurant before, only had takeaway. The first let down was their lack of high chair, whilst I appreciate they probably don't get many young children visiting, a high... More

Definately our favourite Chinese in Exmouth, Food is delicious, Lemon chicken divine. Great service, atmosphere quiet and relaxed. Prefer using the small bowls and as I think you taste the food more individually then. Portions aren't that big but we felt full afterwards. Will be going back again soon.

Where do I start! It all started when the fried rice came out! It looked like plain boiled rice with hardly any egg in it. I then in formed the waiter we ordered egg fried rice and he said it was. We asked for it to be fried again and came back the same. Then the main dishes came out... More
