We go here several times a year on a Saturday or Sunday evening and the food and service is always good. It's not the most modern and a very traditional place - probably hasn't changed much in the last 25 years but is very popular....More

When I eat out for dinner on my own when I'm away on business I don't want to spend hours in a restaurant. I want to have some good food with efficient service which is exactly what I received at the Golden Dragon.

Group of 8 served with friendliness and efficiency, neither hurried nor ignored. We had the deluxe special for 6 and a la caret for the awkward 2. Every course was served together and no one kept waiting. Oh, and the food itself was simply superb.
