“Good food and doing a lot of business”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

We stoppedfor lunch while traveling through on a trip to the west. We checked out tripadvisor and went there based on the reviews and the number of cars in the lot.

We ended up having the buffet ($7.50) even though I do not care for buffets. The food looked fresh and good so we gave it a try. Plus, the were many choices. I was amazed at the number of dishes.

They were doing a great business with in house seating as well as many take out orders!

We would stop again.

“Golden Dragon Reigns over Farmington, New Mexico.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

Located directly next to Fresh for Less on Farmington's Main Street is the Golden Dragon Chinese Restaurant. This restaurant is open seven days a week and offers lunch and dinner buffets besides the regular ala carte menu. While it boasts the typical Oriental art upon its walls, the restaurant is open and welcoming, as is the staff.

We were seated at a booth and our drink orders were taken immediately. Unfortunately, we were late for the lunch buffet and too early for the dinner buffet, so needed to order from the ala carte menu. There was much to choose from and the choice was difficult as we wanted to try so much. Next visit, a buffet is a must to experience the variety Golden Dragon offers.

The Wonton Soup is a rich broth filled with vegetables and delicate wontons.
The Eggdrop Soup has a broth similar to the Wonton Soup, but thicker and it also contains vegetables, but cut finer. Either soup would be an excellent choice as a meal alone, or for comfort if hit with a cold or flu.

Main courses were Chicken with Broccoli and Chicken Chop Suey; Fried Rice and Egg Rolls (served with sweet and sour sauce). Both chicken dishes were loaded with thinly sliced white breast meat and vegetables with light sauces, but flavorful. The fried rice was moist and tender; the egg rolls were crispy and absolutely delicious. This meal was for four people and we still ended up taking food home; and the bill did not break our wallet at all.

If in the mood for Chinese cuisine, the Golden Dragon's cave is where you want your table set.
