“Good friendly Chinese food near Winter Park Colorado”
Review of Pearl Dragon

Pearl Dragon
Ranked #2 of 35 Restaurants in Granby
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Chinese
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.

Stopped by this place after nordic skiing at Snow mountain ranch(YMCA). From outside nothing special, kind o drab, but inside, great atmosphere, very friendly staff and happy customers. This is the place the locals go for good Chinese food. My son had hunan beef, i had shrimp/vegetable dish. Both were excellent. Fresh vegetables and shrimp were large and cooked to perfection. Steamed rice was fluffy and fresh. The lady that took our carry out order was pleasant and cheerful. Trust me dont go to winter park or fraser for Chinese food, havent found a good one there. This place is about 23 minutes from Safeway in fraser and worth every minute driving there. Drive there is pretty as well. Pleasant surprise to find authentic and tasty Chinese food in Grand county. Oh yeah had the calamari appetizer, darn good, very tender served with spicy(HOT!) wasabi flavored and sweetnsour sauce. Who thought calamari could be this good in the mountains!.
Try this place if your skiing Winterpark, youll love it.

Good food. Portions are large. The best soup. We always stop here when in town. They have opened one in Kremmling too. Be prepared to take home leftovers:)

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.

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

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!
