I have eaten here many times and each time I try to order something different. Everything has been outstanding! The teriyaki chicken is a favorite. I usually go in and pick up my phoned in order, but I know they also deliver. They are always...polite and helpful when I go into the restaurant.More
We wanted to have Chinese food so we went to TripAdvisor. Gold Dragon Express was close by so that is where we went. It is very low key and the place itself is tiny. The food is excellent. We had cream cheese filled fried wonton,...sweet & sour chicken, kung pao chicken and 1 other dish. All of it was great and the large quantity of food is amazing. We had steamed rice with our meals. All that for just over $20.00. Great food and great prices.More
We have used this Chinese restaurant 5 times now and we keep going back ! We have made ourselves try something new each time...now we have our FAVES ...Mongolian beef, Chicken szechuan, Fried vermicelli with BBQ pork and not to forget the cream cheese wonton...and spring rolls We always get the food to go and it is packaged so beautifullyMore
When "Green House" closed at the end of January, we were heartbroken as we had been going to Green House for 30 years...we have since tried Best Wok in Calimesa and Tangs in Calimesa,,,Last night we did a take out from Gold Dragon Express and...WE ARE DELIGHTED with them ! We tried Mongolian Beef and an order of their cream cheese wontons...both dishes were fantastic ! The beef came with steamed rice that was fluffy and so good with some of the chili sauce and sweet and sour sauce along with packets of soy sauce, too. The service is excellent and we are so happy to have a "go-to" Chinese place again...Kudos to these good people...we highly recommend this nice, little family run place !More
Our family really likes Thai and Chinese food. And it can get expensive, when you are ordering a $10.00 (or more) dish per person, plus drinks and an appetizer to share. Gold Dragon Express is MUCH friendlier to our wallet than many.
Whenever we go...out, regardless of where, if it is something available on the menu, the others always insist on fried tofu as an appetizer. It's USUALLY an appetizer that is easy for me to pass up, being very rubbery and bland. NOT so at Gold Dragon Express. Their Crispy Spicy Peppered Tofu is wonderful. Crispy on the outside, tender in the middle, and just enough spice to make it interesting. I've even ordered as MY meal, not intending to share!
We also enjoy the Cream Cheese Wontons. Actually, frequently that is ALL we get: the crispy spicy peppered tofu and the cream cheese wontons. We have had several other dishes, ranging from just OK (they weren't dishes we normally would choose and were trying to be adventurous, and weren't impressed, but it's probably just that they WEREN'T what we would normally CHOOSE) to just freaking awesome. We also enjoy the Stir Fried Asparagus and Chicken, when it is available, but it's a seasonal special.
Whether it is extra this or don't add that, they are happy to comply. And even better, THEY DELIVER for a small fee. So...On those days you are so bone tired you can't consider cooking and are too weary to drive, as long as you have enough energy to pick up the phone, you have an actual alternative to pizza!
It's only negative(s) are minor, so far as I can tell. The location is less than optimal for impulse diners. It's hidden in the corner of an older strip mall, surrounded by low income shopping havens. And the decor isn't fancy and "date night" impressive. But the family that runs it sure knows how to treat their customers, which makes up for those (very) minor negatives.More
