Does NOT take credit cards. BRING CASH. If you can overlook that anything you get here is good. Fast, cheap and delicious. They have lunch and dinner "plates", egg rolls are divine and the rangoons are also amazing.

We are in town for softball. I had a taste for Chinese. I read the reviews and decided to give it a shot. Reviews were pretty spot on. The inside isn't much, just tables and chairs, really. I ordered to go. I read it takes about 10 minutes and yes, my order was ready in 10 minutes. It was piping... More

Excellent service and great food! The front counter service was wonderful. She was conversational and personally delivered our food to our table. The soup, dumplings, and dishes were all great.

I love the Dragon Chinese restaurant, don't confuse it with dragon express on campus. The dragon on west 3rd is the best. The chicken in garlic souse is wonderful.

This is my favorite chinese restaurant in Bloomington. The place is small and very plain. Don't expect fine dining here. Nothing fancy, just great food. They are fast and always get the orders right. I've been going here for years and have never had any problems. Expect pop in a can & plastic utensils. GREAT FOOD!

We stopped here after shopping for a new phone and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and the prices were better. The two of us ate for 10 bucks. I'd eat here any day of the week!
