My wife and I love the potstickers so much we get 2 orders and make a meal of them alone, however, we enjoy the egg flower soup, shrimp lo mein, spareribs, orange chicken, and sesame chicken then finish the meal with almond cookies. The servers are first class!

We have been going to the Rainbow Dragon for years and it is where we go when we want Chinese food. We especially enjoy watching the "rookies" order a combination for themselves. My wife & I learned very quickly that you share these plates. The #7 that we get is $8.95 and it comes with BBQ pork, (6) shrimp, pork... More

Every once in awhile my friends or family who are visiting want Chinese food, and this is where we go. The portions are generous, and their menu consists of standard American Chinese favorites we all grew up with. If I order two family style meals, it will feed 4-6 people with normal appetites. Great value. The dining room needs significant... More

The food is GREAT! The building and interior are a bit run down, so do not let that fool you. The service is always friendly and the quantity of food for the money is FANTASTIC. Order less that you think....the portions are large.

We went here after a couple of friends recommended it. The place was busy and that is always a good sign. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. My husband had the tomato beef and loved it. I had the Pork Egg Foo Yung and it was amazing. The portions are HUGE! Dinner, Soup, and Iced Tea and... More

They have a good variety of specials here. I have the pork fried rice, and bbq pork. The portions are big, and for only $4.75. Can't get it any best in town.

I had a lunch combination which was of good portion and flavorful. Received great service as there was only 2 other patrons in restaurant. Carpet was very stained and torn in places as was the upholstery. Tablecloths were stained on sides that were not covered by glass top. Very dated interior. If not interested in ambiance and just a good... More

My nephews loved the food, but my General tsos was average. Better than other Chinese places nearby. It is worth the price though.

The prices are cheap and the portions are large but who wants big hunks of deep fried breading? The standard for old fashioned neighborhood chinese restaurants is rather low and this place falls below it. Try any other of the similar places in the neighborhood for a better meal. Some of these places seem to only be open as lottery... More

Although the atmosphere is funky and the fake plants are dusty the food is awesome . . . huge portions and really cheap prices. The pan noddles are great.
