I called in at 6:30 to get my order, they told me 45 minutes. Being from out of town, I told them we were at the Candlewood Suites and gave them my phone number. 7:30 comes and no food, no call. I called and they...More

Golden Dragon has been a favorite of mine for years. They offer the best deals for lunch, with a large buffet and a drink for less than $8.00. The service is impeccable and the food never disappoints. It's always fresh and hot.

Golden Dragon is an excellent restaurant. The food is really fine and the portions quite large. Their eat-in lunch buffet is quite popular and with good reason - it's something like $7.95 for all you can eat and the choices are varied and all delicious....More

I have eaten here many times but none in the last year and a half. Stopped in for the lunch buffet and and was very disappointed. Bland. Tasteless. Somewhat greasy. Hot & sour soup simply bad. It was just your typical Chinese buffet you see...More
