I revisited this restaurant after 34 years. While a lot has changed one thing has not - it is the friendly, courteous staff who make you feel at home from the moment you enter. As expected, the surroundings were very elegant with nothing to be faulted. They did fumble a bit with our drinks orders but that was sorted out.
For starters we had the bay prawns and baguette, dry red chilli and the stir-fried duck. The pawn and baguette was a very interesting combination.
For mains we asked for honey spare ribs and whole crab Singapore chilli. But since we were already quite full we asked the waiter if he could cancel the rib order. He did so without a fuss.
All in all it was a leisurely experience and a high point of our stay.

This is a place where we love to go to celebrate our very special days quietly. The ambiance is also very senior citizen friendly. The staff understands the needs and tastes of the guest and recommends the dishes best suited to them. The food is excellent and the staff's friendliness makes it very special. I love the sea food dishes here. The dim-sums were excellent starters. The crab soup & soft noodles with sea food were excellent. Since I longed for a dessert but was too full to eat it, our server brought me a complimentary scoop of ice cream! I was very very touched by this gesture! These are the very small things that make a great hotel, true to the Taj name.

I am surprised that Golden Dragon isn't ranked higher on Tripadvisor.
Would definitely peg it among the top 5 restaurants in Mumbai - despite the fact that it is expensive (as would be expected of a restaurant located in the best five star hotel in the city). The quality of the food and the service are worth it. On any night, you'll find the who's who of Mumbai dining here.
Having moved out of India a couple of years back, this restaurant is on our must visit list, every time we are back in Mumbai.
On our last visit, the service was great as usual (as are Taj group standards) - we went with friends whom we were catching up with after a long time. We stayed late, after all other diners had left - yet the restaurant staff did not make any attempt to ask us to hurry up/ leave.
The food was awesome as always... my favorites - the Golden Fried prawns for appetizers, and the dark chocolate toffee for dessert. The latter is an absolute MUST try... and if you have had a full meal, the serving is large enough to be easily split among 3 people at least. It is not a dessert you find on Chinese menus... but try it once and you will keep coming back for more!
