First time I had been to this take-away and was pleasantly surprised. A little more pricey than most but the portions were larger than usual and had that little bit more taste than most. We ended up with free drinks, never understood why, and a reusable bag to carry it away. Will definitely go again if I'm in the area.

We were staying at Craken Farm campsite and wanted a local place to eat and after looking on TripAdvisor came across the Dragon Inn, most reviews were favourable most saying that the decor is a little dated. There were only one other couple in the restaurant but the takeaway side was booming. We ordered the combo starter which was beautiful,... More

Went on a Saturday Bank Holiday evening for take out, whilst visiting family in Ripon. Phoned through the order at around 18:40 and was told 15 minutes to collect. Arrived expecting a fairly quick turn around but ended up waiting another 20 minutes. Apparently a large order had come through. (Surely they could have told us that on the phone?!,... More

Moved to the area recently and looked for a decent Chinese restaurant, glad to say that this place met my needs and the food was pretty authentic, definitely will try again and see how the other dishes compare.

Chinese takeaways are very much a subjective thing in my experience - what one man loves another may find so-so. This wasn't up there with the best for us but the food was freshly prepared, the service was fast and there was a nice variety on the menu which allowed us to choose some dishes that we wouldn't normally order...

NOTE: I have been eating at this restaurant and takeaway since the year 2000 but I have noticed (I don't get takeaways that frequently) in recent years that its restaurant dining element closed and now it is solely a take-away established. Previous to this, I never noticed any difference to the taste or quality of the dishes when had in... More

We wanted a Chinese takeaway but were fed up with the one in Bedale. We were recommended The Dragon Inn Chinese Takeaway in Ripon Market Place. We were greeted with a smile and given menus to look at. We picked the set meal for 4 but amended the king prawn dish to Kung Po Char Su. It was not expensive... More

Had a couple of take away meals from here last week, nothing fancy, Chicken with pineapple and Chicken chop suey. Truly terrible is the best way to describe it, looked awful, the word 'Gloop' springs to mind, and I can confirm it tasted no better. Ate bits of it and the rest was binned. Should have taken it back, but... More

First evening in Ripon - walked in with friends expecting a restaurant as the name suggests only to be told it's only a takeaway! We walked out and ate somewhere else that night. However last night got a takeaway. Staff were helpful and efficient as 10 of us all ordered separately. Portions were big, tasty and reasonably priced - meal... More

Good food and good service . We use this takeaway on a regular basis and it's certainly the best in Ripon. Staff are always friendly and food never takes long
