Bought about $25 work of food last week. Ended up getting violently ill will food poisoning several hours after eating it. Had to miss a day of work and suffered from severe dehydration. Today I brought the food back and explained what had happened. They seemed uninterested and said that too many days had past to issue a refund. Due... More

Chinese take-out that has many of the typical dishes found everywhere. They do a good job. We have eaten their food many times. Never disappointed and better than most others we have tried. Lady who is at the register most times friendly and very pleasant..... in spite of the place being frequently slammed with orders.

We have been going to the Happy Dragon now for some time. It is the best Chinese food we have had in our area. Very fresh ingredients, as good as anything I have had in the restaurants.

A lot of these type of establishments are dark and dirty. Not so with Happy Dragon. The restaurant was clean and well lit. The service was friendly and fast. The shrimp fried rice was fresh and hot. While there were not a lot of shrimp in the order, what was there was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Good take out... More

First time trying take out. Shrimp spring rolls were fair, egg rolls did not even have a teaspoon of filling and the pork fried rice was horrible. I had to add sauteed onions, egg and soy sauce at home. I also removed the 5 freezer burnt peas and left the small quantity of frozen carrots. I am very surprised there... More

The Chinese food in Sarasota Bradenton is decent at best. Anyone who lived in or visited a big city up north or on the west coast has experienced excellence. Here we have a variety of good places. We like Happy Dragon for its variety of noodle dishes (although they do not have Chow Fun) Their soups, egg drop, won ton... More

We love ordering from Happy Dragon. They are always friendly. The sesame chicken is consistently great, hot and fresh. I highly disagree with the negative remarks on this restaurant, you are getting a quick inexpensive meal.

Depending on who is working you can get delivery using a credit card. I guess if they don't feel like delivering it is cash only. Most folks don't carry a lot of cash around these days so they shouldn't advertise delivery in that case. Food is okay.

I'm surprised at a few poor reviews. While this is certainly not a five-star Chinese restaurant, it's a consistently good neighborhood carry-out. I've been here many times and find the food more than acceptable. I wish it were a five star, but I'm happy that it's here close to our home
