“The family favourite chinese in Chennai”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Our family has been dining at the Golden Dragon, Taj Coromandel for as long as we can remember. I make it a point to eat here every time we visit Chennai. The ambience is superb, the service second to none (I have travelled all over the world) and the food exceptional. We compare all other Chinese with the Golden Dragon and only the Schezuan Court at the Oberoi, Bangalore is of the same standard. There is not a single Chinese in Britain or Europe that I have visited that matches, possibly because the Indian palate prefers a spicier version.
It is no doubt expensive by Indian standards but the money is well spent. We have always felt 'special' when we have visited the Golden Dragon.
Looking forward to many more visits in the future!!

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Golden Dragon restaurant has been a part of Chennai's elegant dining for years (39 to be precise!). And will remain one of the safest bets if you are looking for great food, great service and a calming ambience.

It's not dim or dark, it's not so elitist that it's oppressively silent, the food is well planned and excellent and the service is quintessentially Taj.

If the Taj hotels in Chennai are unfailingly courteous and hospitable to the stranger & first-timer, their warmth is unbeatable if one is a regular! Consistently good service can make even mediocre food palatable and Golden Dragon does have lovely food too.

My husband and I came here for our 'date night'. We were taken care of by Sagayaraj, Pushparaj & Dwaraka. But the other wait staff & hotel staff are good too.
