Description: Excellent place for good Chinese food! On the outside, the place looks like nothing special, in fact, it looks closed. We decided to try it out, thanks to other YELP reviews. Our waitress even asked us where we'd heard about this place, so we told her, and she said I hope everything is great. She was fun, attentive, and gave great customer service. She was happy to explain the menu and any item we asked about. Truly enjoyed our meal! We tried the PINEAPPLE CHICKEN, and WOW, that was the freshest lightly fried chicken slices, in a light flavored pineapple sauce, with pineapple chunks. The Pot Stickers were the best we've ever had!! After going thru a few menus at the more pricey restaurants in this area, we chose this winner!! We were very impressed, and we will be back on our next visit to Granby/Grand Lake/Winter Park area.

“Pearl Dragon in Granby”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Well not as good as the ratings. I had the experience of stopping by one of Granby’s restaurants at lunchtime Friday and although the ambiance of the area was great, the food at the Pearl Dragon was not. Rated high by other fanciers of Chinese fare, the meal was less than satisfactory. The place lacks charm. Cleanliness is not a strong suit, finding the soy sauce bottle stuck to a serving plate and unable to be used. Ordering Sesame Chicken and Kung Pau Beef both served quickly and generous portions for the pricey $8.25 luncheon served with soup and spring roll. The Won ton soup was watery and overpowered by onion. Needing to ask for white meat chicken and finding it tough and stringy was a disappointment, while the beef fared better. The only notable item served was the spring roll.. It would have been a more enjoyable experience if one of the staff had refrained from carrying on a personal telephone conversation and not speaking at a “shrilling” level hurting both my ears and that of my guest. If this is what to expect, then one should refrain from visiting this establishment.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

The staff was friendly and helpful. Suprisingly good for the area and not very expensive. I was impressed.

“great Chinese food in an unexpected area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

My husband loves Chinese food and has eaten at countless restaurants over the years.. and he said this one is phenomenal. Loved the Szechuan Beef but could have had more spice!

“Local's Favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a good choice for Grand County locals and visitors alike. We had another good meal on Labor Day. Even after a busy weekend, the staff was enthusiastic to see us. The building is an old A&W restaurant so don't let the view from the outside stop you. I enjoyed the Hunan Beef, one son had the kids chicken lo mein and the other had the Kung Pao Triple delight while my wife enjoyed sampling all three. They are open lunch and dinner. Service is good and fast. Easy to get out within an hour for lunch.

“Really terrific chinese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We were in Granby for a week and hadn't found anywhere good to eat so we tried this. To our amazement the food was terrific - the gals running it came from Los angeles and grew up with parents running a chinese restaurant. The place is always crowded with cars outside and we learned why!
