Eat here last Friday. We had sweet and sour chicken and their pot stickers. The food was really good and the place is quite clean. If you like Chinese food and haven't been here yet, give them a chance. We've lived here for ten years and have been going to the same Chinese restaurant for all this time. Food wasn't... More

The restaurant doesn't have much atmosphere but the food is delicious and perfect for take out. I recommend the sauerkraut stir-fry and garlic spinach!

We ordered take-out. It took over an hour, service was RUDE, and the food -- waaaaay toooo expensive -- was marginal. In fact, it make two in our party ill. Would definitely NOT go back. The General Tso's was dry, tasteless and chewy, same for the fried tofu. The best thing we ordered was an eggplant vegetable medley, most of... More

I used to save that title for Xing Panda Palace in Bellingham, but Dragon River is better. I've been here for a couple of lunches and dinners, and it has been really good every time. Service is very good and fast, and the food is just above average all the way around. Even mild dishes like the Chicken with Mushrooms... More

Not having been to any part of China I was looking for "chinese" food for lunch. This is it. Hot and Sour soup with a bit of a bite, General Tso's chicken that was well cooked and the sauce was sweet and spicy, yum.

Lots of choices on the menu, something for everyone. Particularly liked Garlic Beef, a Northern China dish. Careful though, it is very spicy.

We have always enjoyed ordering from the Northeastern portion of the menu. These dishes are often hearty and comforting. The braised pork (which must be eaten with the sauce it comes with) is just the thing on a cold night.

My friends and I visited Dragon River restaurant in the downtown area as it is a fave of theirs. I thought the layout and furnishings were just OK, but the food is the test. I ordered General Tsao's chicken and my friends Ma Po Tofu and another dish I don't recall with Tofu substituted for meat. My General Tsao's dish... More
