I seem to have something about Chinese food and Hamilton! It all started decades ago with Hunan House (no closed). Dragon Court is now our extended family's go to place to celebrate special occasions. It is the best around - every dish a taste sensation... and so fresh tasting! Nothing is saturated in sauce that makes everything taste the same.... More

I love dumplings, so, every time I visit Dragon Court, I order steamed pork dumplings with crab roe. Delightful! Their rolls also are good, especially “Banh Cuon Tom Kho Chien,” pan fried shrimp rolls. Most of these items are under $5, but, if you have the time and money, I suggest that you order “Vit Quay bac Kinh,” crispy Peking... More

Entered and greeted. Seated and within 5min we were asked if ready to order x 4?? All at our table did not get a complete menu. Food choice were very good and eagerly await our meal. Our soup selections were fabulous, nicely prepared and served hot. Our dinner arrived dish by dish, with a very generous quantity. The meal was... More

We shared multiple dishes, lobster, mussel, veggie, chicken, sticky rice. All of these dishes tasted good to me, while previously when I ordered take out the food was very salty and the beef had a weird texture. But the last visit was pleasantly surprising :)

Mediocre food (at best) and really expensive. Truly didn't understand the hype here. A lot of really great places in the neighbourhood... go there instead.

Visit this restaurant based on recommendation of a friend. Ordered Beef with broccoli (good), Yang Chow Fried Rice (look pale but taste good), General Chow Chicken (very good, taste right, recommended, crispy on the outside). The server is nice and polite. Nice decor. We got free very sweet melon dessert.

A few years ago, the food was great, but this time, I know that I could have made better Chinese food. The fried rice was white and tasteless! I think they forgot the soy sauce and the chicken in it tasted like it was from 3 days ago. The vermicelli was dry and the shrimp was tasteless. We usually order... More
