Our takeaway meal was quickly served having phoned our order through shortly before arrival at the Golden Dragon. As a party of 6 adults, we each had a different meal, we were all greatly satisfied with the flavour, size of the portion and the price.

Decent Chinese takeaway. We had four different dishes, all prepared fresh and of good quality. Would definitely use again. Only slight drawback is that it is cash only which we didn't appreciate until we came to pay. We were emptying our pockets for pennies and...More
