This review is for the Red Dragon located in Hillyard on Diamond Avenue. We went in for dinner on a Friday night - good food at great prices! It completely satified our Chinese food craving.
We tried to get a full spectrum of what they offer. We ordered the Pick Three combo ($8.75 and added $1.50 for the Speical Chow Mein - we ordered the Honey Wine Chicken, Sweet & Sour Chicken, and the Special Chow Mein) and for $10.75 we had Combo #10 which includes an egg roll, fried shrimp, BBQ pork, fried rice, sweet & sour pork, almond chicken, and teriyaki chicken . Both entrees included the Egg Flower Soup which is good! We also ordered a pot of hot tea.
I would like to say we would definitely go back again! Majority of the food was tasty and fresh. The best item was the Honey Wine Chicken!!
There were a few items we didn't like. What makes the chow mein "special" is that they are soft noodles instead of the canned crunchy noodles and you get chicken, shrimp, and pork mixed in. We didn't think this upgrade was worth it...especially since we didn't get any shrimp in ours.
The almond chicken is a piece of deep fried chicken covered with a brown sauce with almond dust on top. We prefer the stir fried preparation with chicken, veggies, and actualy pieces of almond mixed together.
The waitress was "just the facts"...which is OK with us especially since every seat and booth was occupied (literally...it was packed on a Friday night at 6:30pm). There are two small tables outside - one of those was being used by a family of three. I wouldn't like it out there - your sitting adjacent to the street in Hillyard (not known for its ambiance).
They do offer alcoholic beverages - beer, wine, and mixed drinks.
I do find it interesting they have belly dancers at the Downtown location on Fridays starting at 5pm...we might need to check that location out some day.
In summary - stop in and give them a try!!
