“great food and lots of it”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

i discovered this restaurant while looking for a restuarant that served sub guschoom chow mein. Be warned that the sub gum chow mein is not what old school Cantonese chinese restaurants in Boston and NYC serve, but the hostess and chef's willingness to accommodate my desires was very, very appreciated. We were so impressed that we went back the next night and ordered mushi pork and house special chow fun as take out. The food was delicious and the servings enormous. We live about 30 miles away and we will be back often. I have never written a review on here before, but I felt that the food and the golden Dragon deserved to be tasted... enjoy.

“A perfect blend of flavors”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

So many asian restaurants but this little place in Manchester has alot of flavor. If you try it, you'll be surprised. Service is a little slow so if you are in a hurry you might not want to go.

“Awesome hot and sour soup and now they have bubble tea!”
Reviewed May 10, 2012 via mobile

I always stop her for hot and sour soup and fried dumplings whenever I visit my mom. The atmosphere is 80s chinese restaraunt which is pretty far out and fun. When I ordered take out last time, it was about 10 minutes before closing and they were really nice and willing to fill my order. I have had several different dishes from the menu and I have enjoyed all. They also have bubble tea! Which was really good.

“Classic Chinese atmosphere and fine food at very affordable prices”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Golden Dragon is a family run establishment, open for a brisk luncheon business; giving way to a leisurely dinner atmosphere in the evening. Suitable at both times for business, get-togethers with friends, and family nights out. Quiet, relaxed decor and friendly wait-staff never in a rush. Adding to the serenity: a huge fish tank with a variety of sizeable (and very healthy) fish that catch your eye and peer back at those taking the time to interact with them. They are special!
Food is excellent, drinks are more reasonably priced than in most places, and portions are generous. A wide selection is available of Chinese and other Asian dishes. What surprised me the most: dinners cost about the same as lunches in far less comfortable and well-maintained establishments. A true bargain and a good time!

“Best Kept Dim Sum Secret”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Manchester, CT is no Chinatown so let's be fair -Golden Dragon is no Jin Fong (NYC) or Tong Kiang (SFO). Dim sum is served only on weekends - I know Sundays from 11 - 3 pm for sure. No crowds here at 11'ish am so we always get the first shot on a fully loaded dim sum cart where you will typically find steaming containers of: har gow, sticky rice, shrimp and pork shu mai, shrimp and sharkfin dumpling, deep fried tofu with shrimp, deep fried eggplant with shrimp, steamed chicken feet, chinese ribs, sliced tripe with ginger, bamboo shoot rolls - you can also order other items from a pretty sizable dimsum menu if what you want is not on the cart. If you absolutely have to have the 'real thing,' then by all means drive up to Boston or NYC Chinatown. Otherwise, Golden Dragon on Sunday is probably your best bet for great dimsum in the Hartford area. Yumm!!
