We went for a family Sunday lunch buffet, it's a comfortable atmosphere, until you join the queue for the food which is laid out on a six foot table, the plates on our table were what we would use as a side plate which are used to collect your own food, the queue is like a conga dance line, on...

It's been 10 years since we last visited, and it hasn't changed a bit. The staff were wonderful and the food was excellent with a good variety of choice on the menu. The decor hasn't changed either but don't let this put you off; it is clean, fresh and in keeping with a Chinese style restaurant.

3rd or 4th visit here. Always good. Typical U.K. Chinese food - but better quality that a take away. Worth a visit. My daughter loves it.

We have been here many times over a number of years and have yet to be disappointed. Food is superb, plenty of it, piping hot and it always looks appealing. Price is reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Owner and staff could not be more helpful, pleasant and very welcoming.

We have visited the Dragon a couple of times now. This time it was very busy. The tables very close together, a party sat at my right side and had no way to get out other than the person on the end moving which resulted in having people up and down all evening and standing right next to where I...

We have visited this restaurant a number of times & return so often for a few reasons. The first being the quality & flavour of the food - absolutely beautiful. The second is the staff - they are so friendly & helpful. Alan the owner is so lovely, he remembers us each time and always treats us well. Personal favourites... More
