Went with a group of friends on a Saturday night. The food was good by Istanbul standards as there are so limited options for Chinese food. Dragon is inside the Reina complex and by the Bosporus.

We had the dim sum, Szechuan chicken, a couple of other starters, sweet & sour fish, crispy chicken, kung pao etc. All was pretty good so we got our Chinese food fix.

Service was pretty good so no complaints. The icing on the cake was that at 11 pm we went down to Reina and partied for another 2 hours. Loved it.

The Food is decent nothing exceptional but the restaurant overlooks the Bhosporus and the views are superb.

We came here in a large group and the idea was to have dinner and then hang out in the nightclub. the advantage of eating dinner in these restaurants is that you are allowed to hang around when it become a night club. I have been told entry is but of an issue otherwise and sometimes they ask for a high cover.

Food is terribly overpriced and they told us that we must spend at least 140 liras per person ( around 60 usd). I landed up spending more which is fine but I don't expect a fancy restaurant to tell us that we have a minimum spend per person - that's just cheap behavior.

The food options for vegetarians is limited and the quality of food is super average.

The only thing good is the ambience. Service is below average and the overall experience we have had is not good.

Save your time and money and don't go here.

An exciting venue to visit in Istanbul for fancy Chinese food with the most spectacular view: the Bosphorus bridge and the straight and the Asian coast from the European side! A good selection of Chinese favourites like Peking duck with Pancakes and Hoi Sin sauce, just delicious! Also the classical items you can expect in a good Chinese restaurant menu (pork excluded), with an occasional twist in the seasoning, but nothing really shocking: just good, tasty, satisfying Chinese food and excellent service. The atmosphere is lively and you will see and be seen by the who's who of Istanbul who will be present any night of the week.

Right next to, and overlooking, the water, right next to a major overpass bridge, Dragon was a very good meal in a wonderful location!
