Dragon House is your best bet in Moreno Valley for Chinese-American food. By spending a few dollars more than at the usual steam-table or cafeteria-style line of worn out selections served at most Chinese places in town, here you get sit-down service and fresher, more consistent and higher quality ingredients.
Due to some ordering and service problems I experienced, I couldn't give Dragon House a higher TripAdvisor rating. First, for lunch, they give you only a simple one-page "luncheon specials" kind of menu and fail to bring out their huge regular menu for people who maybe can linger longer and want more variety. I had to repeatedly interrogate the not-so-cooperative waiter into admitting that the larger menu I had to shag from the lobby was also applicable and could be used to order a larger lunch.
Second, I asked for my curry chicken to be placed on bean sprouts instead of rice or crisp noodles and the waiter made "ick" faces about it and promised I would be disappointed with such a combination. I had to insist on my desired choice and of course the dish turned out fine, for my taste. For whatever reason, they seemed to want to stick very close to the numbered menu items for lunch and discourage anyone venturing off of that.
Dragon House is convenient to the 215 Freeway but parking was a bit crowded. The restrooms and decor were OK, although dated and haven't changed much since the place opened in 1978. Its very popular with the military lunch crowd, with brisk service... but no chopsticks were provided. There is no bar nor is alcohol served. The inviting lobby is filled with many photos of owner David Chang entertaining politicians, Presidents and media personalities at his establishment.
Bottom line: Despite some personal glitches, Dragon House remains a local favorite for standard but better-than-usual Chinese food at moderate prices, so I think you will be pleased. Although the waiters don't like to vary from the house formula, I would still go back here another time.
