Have eaten Dim Sum all around Los Angeles, and theirs is among the best. The price is also a lot lower than many of the other places.
Granted, the bathrooms are a bit messy, and the whole place could use some upgrades, but if you want excellent Dim Sum at a fair price, this is the place to go.

I have eaten Chinese food frequently my whole life. I've lived all over the US and generally Chinese food has gone down in quality over the years. Since living in LA I've been eating at passable Chinese restaurants on the west side. I decided to go to Chinatown to have "better" Chinese food and ended up at Golden Dragon. What I really wanted was good fried rice, it seems impossible to find. Order the house special fried rice....when it came.....first thing, it was white, it did not seem fried at all. Second, the shrimp tasted of nothing at all.....how is that possible?? The pork tasted as if was just going off. The sizzling house special Chop Suey also completely tasteless.....had no sauce on the plate whatsoever. The sizzling seafood platter had a little flavor, I guess. Even the tea was terrible. By far and wide THE WORST CHINESE FOOD EVER. They should be ashamed of themselves.

I live in S.F. and enjoy the great Chinese restaurants here. But when I have to go down south, the best Dim Sum I've found is at the Golden Dragon. Usually we're the only non-Chinese in the place, which is usually a good sign. The dishes tasty and not that expensive.
