Would love to return to this restaurant because the food has so much flavor but it also has an intolerable amount of oil in its preparation. I went once and will not return ... and I live only a few blocks away!More

This is not your typical takeout Chinese restaurant. The food tastes great and is reasonably priced. The wantons in the wanton soup are handmade and the broth is flavorful. The beef in the basil beef is tender and well-portioned to the mushrooms/vegetables. Best time to...More

Excellent food with hefty portions. They accommodate both mild or spicy palettes for all dinning types. Reasonably priced in a fun friendly atmosphere.

I enjoyed lunch here with my daughter. I had the Garlic Chicken with broccoli. Lunch time was a good time to eat. Not very busy, we had to park on the street which appeared limited.

We are here after a recommendation from the hotel. There was a bit of a wait, but now we understand why. Great food, and we will be back next time.

Fat Dragon is not quite what I expected, but very good. First, the ambiance is more one of “millennial watering hole” than anything Asian. That is not a bad thing, just a surprise. The service was excellent, and since my son and I were there...More

Fat Dragon is located nor far from our children’s home. They have taken us there several times. The selection of beer is great as is the food. Spring rolls are excellent as is every shrimp dish I’ve had. Casual atmosphere and children are welcome. Highly...More
