I leave in Kew, just a short distance away from Dragon Inn, Richmond. Having tried the food at Dragon Inn, by chance some years ago, I have now become a frequent visitor to the restaurant,. In short, Dragon Inn offers the finest Chinese cuisine for miles, complimented by wonderful service, with a smile, if I may add! My only disappointment... More

What can I say about this place ? Just superb is the answer. I have been eating at the Dragon Inn now for nearly 29 years and every meal including takeaway has been excellent. I would put the Dragon Inn up there with the likes of top Chinese restaurants in China Towns of London, Liverpool and Manchester. Eddie is your... More

We had an excellent meal here with my partner's parents who were visiting. We had to book as it gets really full on Fridays night. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and full of banter. My partner and I shared the fixed meal which was probably too much food and seemed to be never... More

The Dragon is brilliant, with great food and even better service. It's so wonderful to find a place where you meet the same team every time, where the consistency is great, and where it truly feels like the guests matter to the owners. Well done Eddie, what you do is magic

I've eaten at the Dragon Inn a number of times and I've never had a bad meal there. The service is friendly and attentive and the quality of the food that comes out of the kitchen is outstanding. I recently went with a friend who used to live in Hong Kong and he raved about it! Lovely food, friendly service,... More

We were really pleased with the food and service. They managed to squeeze us in at the back as we hadn't booked. There was a mix up with our order and they bought dishes we didn't order, but we kept those as well as all the items we had ordered. So we enjoyed a huge amount of food but only... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and the quality, consistency of the food and the service is awesome. I eat out a lot, and I have not eaten at a better Chinese restaurant in London. Unusually for Chinese restaurants the wine list is also very good.

Two of us visited. My friend knows the place reasonably well; and I was certainly pleased to have been invited. The restaurant was clean, and the staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. The service was unobtrusive (which I always value). This makes for good ambience. There is no pomp or elaborate decoration: the emphasis is entirely on the food and,... More

We have now dined here twice on visits to Richmond - each time, we have been delighted with the quality and service. The menu seems fairly extensive, but the family who run the restaurant take great pains to select quality, fresh ingredients and the chef combines them for a great variety of delicious dishes - he must have some sort...
