“Still as bad”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

By the way the Photo is not that of the restaurant in question (witch is a Chinese buffet style restaurant).
The food is just the same slops, the salad bar and fruit bar are a complete joke and not of the funny kind (they do cover themselves by a notice saying seasonal ?) followed closely by the sweet/cake section that have biscuits that look as though they came from a £1 shop and slices of cake cut so small you could pick up a slice with a fish knife and still see the blade, or you could opt for the strawberry jelly on its own. The staff are like flies as soon as you look as if you have finished BANG there in-front of you. My recommendation if passing by just keep going.

“Food fantastic”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Visited for lunch with my partner having not been for almost two years. The food was just as excellent as we have always found it in the past.
A good choice of about 20 starters and 20 mains and a large choice of desserts.
The only issue here is the price, daytimes I think are fair but the evenings are now very expensive and for not much extra choice. The more recent hygiene score of a 5 was most reassuring although they have always had the same high standards in my opinion.
The best in Bedford but visit in the daytime!

“LOVE the food, service is good, prices a little high”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My children, partner and I LOVE coming to Dragons. The food is fresh and there is always plenty of choice. The staff are usually helpful and for lunch, it is reasonably priced. However, in the evenings it is extremely expensive, especially for children. Mine do not eat much and to have to pay adult prices for children over 8 years is a bit OTT if you ask me, and is why we won't be visiting for a while!!! I love the chicken satay, the duck pancakes, chicken balls and most of the menu. The choice is fabulous and the venue is great, my kids love the lanterns and the music. The drinks are quite expensive and the lemonade and cola isn't the greatest quality.

“lunchtime ok evening extorsionate!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

have visited here for lunch on many occasions but of late the food is getting more colder everytime.the waiting staff hover nearby so as soon as you put your plate down its gone which is slightly annoying.food itself is ok and the restaurant quite nice but needs to be less like a canteen and a little more like a chinese restaurant please.Evenings are so pricey.not bad in all but could improve significantly.

“Could be better”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I've eaten here many times, I can't say I've ever had a problem with the food, there is a wide variety and it's prices are good. what has put me off a little is the food hygiene certificate they have on the door, they got a one!
The staff are rude, slow and just have no manners..
