Description: Dragonwell Bistro is centrally located in Downtown Portland at SW 1st and Yamhill by next to the MAX Yamhill Station. If you dare, come inside and take a look, this is not your ordinary Chinese Restaurant. when you walk in, you will be greeted with an Upscale Bistro with high ceilings and a full spacious bar along with the Newer decorations Owner Jack Brought back from China. The smell of the food will make you want to sit down, and one taste of any of their popular dishes some of which was brought back by Jack from the 20 years of travelling in China. will keep you coming back time after time. If you are a visit, be sure to flag Jack down to give you some suggested place to go, as he grew up here in Portland but have live in Portland, San Francisco, LA, New York and Asia for the past 20 years. We love visitors, from all over!!

Had the tofu and dumplings which both were delicious. My husband had the Mongolian beef and really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly. Nice atmosphere.

We visited in the summer and thought it was the best Chinese we had ever eaten. This time, came back with the whole family and we weren't disappointed. We all had something different and there wasn't a single plate we didn't love. The size was generous enough to have leftovers. If you don't try the champagne mandarin chicken, you are missing something truly amazing.

Modern vibe, prompt service, fresh Chinese. Lovely sauteed dry string beans. All the food looked nice coming out of the kitchen. Good place for a quick business lunch.

We have been challenged in the past finding good Chinese food. We enjoyed our lunch at Dragonwell a lot. The Bloody Mary was very tasty. We split a few dishes and the fried eggplant was our favorite. It got very busy during lunch on a weekday.

We had mapo tofu w/ no pork (which is difficult to get in a non vegetarian restaurant), tofu with broccoli, vegetarian fried rice and soup for appetizers. My hot and sour soup was just right and the kids liked the egg drop soup. The location isn't great esp for dinner b/c of all the homeless around there but the waitress was very friendly and gave good advice. They only had one chef on duty that night but the wait wasn't too long. I would definitely go back.
