The Lucky Dragon consistently serves delicious meals and quick service. They serve the best orange chicken we've tried and makes you realize how mediocre something like panda express is. We wish The Lucky Dragon was in our town and enjoy it whenever returning to Charles City.

I've had Chinese at many places and everyone I talk to agrees, Lucky Dragon has the best egg rolls, crab rangoon and egg drop soup. Everything is delicious. I've never had a bad experience at Lucky Dragon. The staff is helpful and accommodating every time. The owner is friendly. We love going to Lucky Dragon.

My favorite Chinese restaurant in Charles City. The food is very good, and the menu is large. Usually not packed with people, Chinese food appears to not be a favorite of the locals.

I recently took my daughter here on a daddy-daughter date. This is my family's favortie restaurant in Charles City. They have a great variety and I enjoy trying different dishes which is not something I usually do at restaurants - I find a "favorite" and stick with it. Not here - I like to try out new things. I even... More

This is our favorite place to eat Chinese food. Luckily we live in Charles City so get to eat there often. The service is always the best. The owner and staff are so friendly. Definitely worth it.

I have eaten here many times. Vi even knows it's me when I call on for an order. Fast service and the good is amazing. Crab Rangoon and egg drop soup along with the egg rolls make me happy. I usually devour that, then take my entree home. There isn't an entree I gave tried that I haven't liked. My... More

Stopped at Lucky Dragon with friends who stated how they will drive out of town to eat here. Was skeptical, but the food convinced me. Had beef and Broccoli and not sure I have had more tender beef in anything I have had before. It was very busy (with quality of food not surprising) so the ambience was not great... More

I've eaten both lunch and dinner often at this restaurant. I love the décor and the atmosphere, Vivian and her husband, the owners, are always present and working along side their staff. Vivian acts as hostess, waits tables, and manages staff; her husband cooks. Vivian recognizes and acknowledges her repeat customers with a friendly greeting and a few minutes of... More
