“Great find”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

While shopping in Tucson I had a craving for Chinese food. I googled places near me and golden dragon had good reviews. I was not disappointed. The meal was great and the service prompt an the price beyond decent. I paid 13 (not including tip) for egg rolls, soup and fried rice. I'm pretty predictable, so I usually order the same thing in any Chinese restaurant. I would recommend golden dragon. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because the egg rolls, which were good, were missing something I couldn't put my finger on. That would not stop me from returning, however.

Thank you for giving us a try, Melissa! I'm really happy to know that you enjoyed your meal with us so much. We change around our recipes for eggrolls from time to time, so perhaps if you came back and gave us a try now, you'd find that missing something! Thanks for reviewing, and I hope we'll see you here soon.

Best wishes,
Albert Huynh, Owner

“Best Chinese Food in Town!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you are looking for great authentic Chinese food this is the place! It took us many years to find the perfect Chinese food restaurant in Tucson, AZ, but we found it. We can proudly say we have been eating there for some 30 years! Food is consistently good, as is the service. Staff is friendly and usually remembers you visit to visit. Start your meal with fantastic “Crab Puffs,” or some “Hot & Sour Soup.” From there things get a little more difficult. Since all the entrees are so good, you may have to come back again and again to find your favorite. From the spicy to the sweet, it’s all there at your finger tips. Don’t forget the order ahead, take out service. Lunch and dinner hours. Be sure to check hours at the location you want to visit as they sometimes don’t serve lunch at all locations. Oracle/Orangegrove usually serves lunch. Swan/Sunrise does not always serve lunch. No outdoor seating. Traditional Chinese décor.

Very clean restaurant, tasty food and friendly service. We had twice cooked pork and pepper steak, good sized portions. Would have eaten here again if staying another night in the area.

“Do Not Hesitate!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Yes, the are many Asian restaurants to choose from in Tucson, and trust me, I have been to MANY, even after trying the Golden Dragon for the first time years ago. Well, the search is over for good now. The Golden Dragon, on Oracle has the freshest lunch fare and a wide variety of enticements on the dinner menu. Take out is timely and friendly, and dine in is a pleasant experience. The six entrees that my party ordered were all winners. Their prices are a little high, comparatively speaking, for Chinese food, but it doesn't feel bad to pay a bit extra for quality and service of this nature. ( there are coupons on their website too, note which menu the coupons are for). Oh, and the Walnut Shrimp, from the dinner menu ( which you may order from for lunch) is otherworldly! Their lettuce wraps, from the appetizer menu are unique and plentiful. ( ask for extra plum sauce)
