I have to Golden Dragon many times since my last visit. I found the quality of food still good and that's why I go there. However, I have noticed that the quantity they serve has reduced a bit over time. The quantity of rice per dish is ok but quantity of other chicken and beef dishes is not sufficient. They... More

I am a veteran visitor of this restaurant. Love their Chinese cuisine. Service is great too. Prices are reasonable. The place now seems to be in need of renovation.

We sat outside to ensure my wife's purdah requirements are met. We were for an early dinner so fortunately skipped the usual bustle. It was very serene at 7.30p. The food was reasonably tasty and we had a good evening.

The kungpao chicken here is spicy, sweet & incredibily delicious. I love the family environment and standard of food they have maintained since 1975. It was one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Islamabad. They have a new location in Bahria, Rawalpindi also which is very elegant also.

It's an old place offering good Chinese food. The restaurant is operated by a Chinese family thus offering real Chinese food. The owners have not invested in the furnishing of the place and still using decades old furniture and crockery. Open kitchen at the front lets you see whats going on inside. Recommended if you are after authentic Chinese food.

Golden Dragon used to be the best Chinese Restuarant in Islamabad. Unfortunately the restaurant has lost its taste. The food is so bland now, most of the dishes don't taste anymore how they used to be. This is no longer the go to place for Chinese cuisine anymore

Visited Golden Dragon many times during past two years and in my view it is the best Chinese food available in Islamabad. Quality of cooking is very good and has a real Chinese flavour to it. Menu contains most of the popular Chinese dishes. Service is also good and it is operated by Chinese people. Decor and interior is average... More

Ok this was my go to spot in ISB and unfortunately my most recent visit was a bit of a disaster! The place was filthy and during our dinner a huge dirty cockroach jumped on to our table! My 6 yr old was in shock as was I! Although they moved us to another table no one bothered to apologise.... More
