my wife and I have ate here probably 5 or 6 times. I like the food but my wife does not. the people here are really friendly and do what they can to take care of you. the place is hardly ever busy and that's most of the reason we don't go there more often

I ordered chicken fried rice- it was fried rice (very bland) with strips of boiled little chicken strips underneath. No flavor at all. My friend ordered shrimp with veggies. It was more like veggies with 6 baby shrimp. It was supposed to be spicy. She put chili sauce on it three- four times to get it even somewhat flavorful. There... More

We went here for dinner one night...we had gone here about 4 yrs ago before and had a poor experience but thought we would give it a try again. Yuck...no flavor, and although there was alot of food, it just didn't taste good!

Sorry, but this place is in no way a good Chinese restaurant! Food tastes as if it had been taken out of a can or something, and on top of that, I found it expensive! I refuse to eat there!

This is a nice place. We've eaten here many times and enjoy the food usually. Tonight was a different experience. Both entree's that were ordered were so full of sprouts it rendered them almost inedible. Not sure if this is the new recipe... Didn't care for that. The Egg Rolls were Awesome as usual though!

I've enjoyed coming to this restaurant for years and they are consistently good. The food is fresh, hot and not greasy. I like how fluffy the egg foo young is and tender the chicken dishes are. I like how friendly the owners are and that they can accommodate a no salt diet for my dad when I take him to... More

If you are into this kind of Chinese food, you should just stay in, save your cash, and open a can of Chun King. We go back very infrequently in the hopes that the food will have improved, but it hasn't yet. The last time we visited the lady who seated us gave us a bit of attitude and said... More

I had lunch at the Golden Dragon today (a Saturday). I thought the food tasted good. Was it "very good"? Probably not, but it was good; I was hungry and I enjoyed it. They have a nice lunch menu with prices from $6.50 to $7.50 but for some strange reason don't offer it on weekends (they should), so I ordered... More

Read the other reviews. Yes, the place was clean. Yes, the lady was nice. The food has no flavor. No veggies in the fried rice. The Bar-B-Q pork was just pork. Even the hot mustard wasn't. Bland is a very bad word in a restaurant review.
