Can't fault our visit to the Golden Dragon. The food was excellent, and plenty of it (we had the banquet B). Service was good. Will definitely go back again.
Great and friendly service. Excellent and quality food. I like it when all the food are served hot. Food are really nice and big portion.
service was great food lovely tea pot constantly refilled to our pleasure we were'nt rushed to order all at our pace a true pleasure to be there would recommend
Another wonderful meal at the Golden Dragon. The food is amazing, the staff friendly and helpful. Made me feel special on my Birthday. Definitely recommend!
We went on Father's Day, and the restaurant was extremely busy. Maybe that accounted for the fact that we had very poor service. we had to ask 4 times for water for the table! We had also ordered wine, which we didn't receive until halfway through our yum cha meal, after having to ask if it had been forgotten. The yum cha dishes were also somewhat disappointing, with the dumplings being very gluey in texture, and sticking to the serving dish. The calamari was tasty,but most of it quite tough. While the turnip cakes were also a very disappointing texture. We had been here before just after they opened and really enjoyed it. Maybe the large number of patrons was the reason for the poor service, but it wouldn't account for the dishes. Disappointed.
yum cha food for lunch(only available then) was good for 4 out of 5 dishes, young man a very good waiter but waitresses nowhere near as polite or attentive and annoyed that one dish we thought was $6 was actually charged at $9.50 so told them deceiving and should change code on menu, also charged for two people to have chinese tea but only my guest ordered it, also not asked if would like cutlery as assumed would use chopsticks, very authentic chinese experience and would still recommend, my mum enjoyed the $10.50 weekday lunch special today
Our booking had not been recognised by the restaurant, but we were seated immediately. We ordered the banquet with extras for our kids, everything was lovely. Staff were very friendly. It was very busy, but the staff handled it well. Definitely will return
The food was surprisingly good, but the experience was sadly let down by - a waiter forgetting to place our order with the kitchen, no Rose available (& not noted on the wine list), no sparkling mineral water available, & more importantly : the place was generally dirty & in poor condition (plaster missing from ceiling, water run marks down the walls, token christmas decorations in poor condition & torn, dirty carpet, dirty dishes left on vacated tables, etc)
Friendly staff, fast choices of delicious yum cha food with lots of variety. Even though the place was very busy due to Mothers Day nothing was too much trouble and price was very reasonable. We will go there again.
The food we had was very nice, but we didn't get a main dish we ordered and I think my husband actually paid for this dish. We ordered fried ice cream and then a waitress came and said, we apologise but the price has gone up by $4 from $6 to $10 ! The fact is, yes the price has gone up but check your menus before hand and charge the following day!
