A roomy, well furnished restaurant. A wide menu, the plus for me being a selection of fish dishes. We enjoyed a tasty meal with generous portions and very reasonably priced.

I was taken there by Google maps and not sure if I would return. The restaurant was virtually empty and lacking in atmosphere.

I think they should have similar set... More

We always visit this restaurant when we come to Exmouth as it offers a varied choice of Chinese and other dishes at very reasonable prices. The service is excellent and it is a good place to visit especially if you are staying nearby at one of the hotels.

it was an enjoyable meal. Standard Chinese starters, good duck pancakes ,three good mains with rice and a bottle of very acceptable white rioja which was reasonably priced. Service was good. We ate very early ,so restaurant was quiet.

I have been a relative newcomer to Exmouth but we were recommended the Golden Dragon as being the best Chinese restaurant in Exmouth. Initial impressions aren't always great - the restaurant can often be quiet and the large, cavernous dining room doesn't always have the best ambience. But ultimately it is the food that brings you back to a restaurant... More

If you are looking for somewhere to eat in Exmouth a short stroll from the train station the Golden Dragon is the place to go. Excellent food, presentation and service. Would highly recommend for a top class Chinese meal.

We have been visiting this restaurant for over 30 years and it is our favourite Chinese eating place. The food is always good and the waiting staff are polite and attentive. The building is old and the decor and formal table layout reflect this.

Seven of us popped in and had a very please set menu. Good value, beef in black bean sauce highlighted for me as nice and peppery. Staff beautifully presented and attentive. Surrounding are superb and would suit many occasions to celebrate
