“Friendly local restaurant”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have been going to this restaurant for years mainly for their lunch menu which is real value for money and always delicious. The buffet nights are brilliant with so many dishes.
But the best thing about this restaurant is the lovely welcome you receive, my husband and I brought our grandchildren a couple of weeks ago and nothing was a problem anything could be mixed and matched and we all enjoyed our lunch there.
Also at the time of the Chinese New Year they welcome the children from the local schools to try the Chinese dishes which is a lovely idea, getting small children used to eating in restaurants and trying food that may be new to them. Long may they remain in Cramlington.

“very nice as usual!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

went here with my friend on thursday, there were a few big parties in and about another 6 tables.
we ordered of the banquet menu £15 per head, prawn crackers, chicken and sweetcorn soup, spare ribs with honey, spring rolls to start. we changed one of the main courses so had sizzling beef, chicken curry and special fried rice. all of the food was really tasty. finished it off with a couple of coffees and chocolate mints.
the total bill came to £42, Not bad at all as thats included 4 glasses of wine and a lemonade.
they do lunchtime specials aswell £7 for 3 courses.

“Sit in service or take-a-way, either way awesome food!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Have visited the Dragon several times and enjoyed several take-always too. The food is very good quality and always very tasty. The service for sit in meals is friendly and fast, even when the restaurant is busy (which it usually is at weekends). The inside is what you would expect, with lots of velvet and deep red colours. The restaurant is spacious inside and good for intimate meals for two or for larger parties. There is a full service menu abs also a buffet available. Have been for both and would recommend the table menu over the buffet. Take-always are by order then collect. Staff are always polite and food is fresh. The Dragon is the top Chinese in Cramlington.
