“Never get sick of this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2011

Dragon Lady is awesome for the much needed Chinese Food roll. A ordered Cashew Chicken, Extra-Extra-Spicy. They said "is this Paul?" Very strange. But, then I got an extra order of wings and dumplings as a gratis bonus. Great food and they take care of their customers, especially the regulars.

“best chinese ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2010

this is the best chinese food that i have ever had... i have been coming to dragon lady for at least 15 years. the food is still as good as it was the very first time i ever tried it. I recommend the hunan chicken and the shrimp fried rice but everything on the menu is delicious! i live further away than i used to but anytime i want chinese, this is the only place i go.

“Best restraunt in C-ville hands down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2009

This place is a bit of a hole in the wall the customers are die hard loyals so you know they must be doing something right. Faye (the Dragon Lady herself), runs a tight ship, if she says your take out is ready in 15 mins, it is.

The staff might not be too talkative but they are friendly and will always let you special order or get something off the dinner menu even in the morning.

The lunch specials are great and the lemon chicken is the kind of thing I have dreams about. The food is simple and good. Don't expect traditional Chinese, this is Chinese/American.

“Best Chinese food in Charlottesville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2008

My husband and I have been hunting for a favorite Chinese restaurant in Charlottesville for about two years. We've had the Dragon Lady twice now and everything we ordered has been amazing. You can tell from the flavor that not only to they know what to put IN their food, but also use the best cooking surfaces available. I highly recommend giving the Dragon Lady a try!
