This place is doing malpractice by imposing 18% "Automatic Gratuity" to indivudual customers repeatedly (not large parties). We have been there twice since new management, one in September and one in November. Both times they demanded 18% tips. They have little footnote on menu saying that any dim sum item carries 18% A.G., but they will add surcharge to the... More

We went here for lunch a few months back and it was terrible then. Wife and I went on a Friday at 6pm and there were 3 other tables occupied in the whole place. Did not try the hibachi but there was 1 small bar with salad and 1 small bar with hot food. I could not find anything edible... More

This restaurant split itself in half and opened up a "crab shack" with chicken wings. Not good at all! We had fried pickle chips for an appetizer. Then my wife had the buffalo shrimp basket on the recommendation of the server. WRONG! It was too hot for her. I think they used sechuan sauce. I had the oysters. They were... More

We are from out of town and completely unfamiliar with local restaurants. We were visiting a local Brewery was to not serve food but offered take out to be delivered via Doorstep Delivery. We chose Dancin Dragon simply because it was close to our location. We ordered both sushi as well as ala carte menu items, and everything was fantastic!... More

I hate to give bad reviews, I know how hard wait staff work. However, the food was disgusting , greasy, cold and obviously sitting out for hours. There were flies all over the fruit and I was a bit hesitant to eat the sushi. The waitress and staff are very nice, but the food sucks. My husband and I paid... More

Last week we went to try the once a month Dim Sum offered at the Blue Bamboo and we were so disappointed after reading the wonderful reviews they had. Not sure if anyone that goes there has ever experienced real Dim Sum before. Today after driving past The Dim Sum Room last week we decided to give it a try... More

Awful. The food was over cooked...not very much of it. The Sushi was old. Ick. I asked for a Memosa and the waiter did not know what a Memosa was but the menu has Memosa listed. Waiter disappeared and I had to ask the manager for a drink. Really awful experience.

Me and my friend decided last minute to try out this place. We're glad we decided to chose this place. Saturday night wasn't too bad at all, we got our table quick and since it's our first time there we asked the server to help us how to order dim sum. Our server was awesome! Everything we ordered are so... More

The food is below par and the customer service is not good at all. We've been there a few times and it's kind of dissapointing every time.

We went for Dim Sum. It really did not turn out to be what we expected. It was like ordering very expensive ala carte. Our past experience with Dim Sum is the wait staff come by with small bamboo steamer baskets. At the Dancin Dragon you ordered and it was brought in stainless baskets/or bamboo. It was not wait staff... More
