If you need to eat tasty Chinese food you need to go there. The staff are in and friendly. In weekends you just need to make sure to book a table as they are always busy. The only down side is that they don't offer home delivery other than that it is a very nice place.

This restaurant has been here for the past 26 years, and we have lived close by for 36, but this is our first visit. It won't be the last. Forget any idea of a traditional Chinese restaurant; this has a very classy entrance, pale grey walls, soft furnishings, all together very attractive. When we arrived just after 6.30 there was only a table occupied. An hour later the restaurant was full. It was encouraging to see several Chinese customers.
The food was well cooked, the sauces delicate, and the staff very friendly and efficient. Not overpriced. We will definitely return.

Being a pescatarian I am very wary of chinese food due to lots of chicken in sauces. I can taste it a mile off even if they tell you it's not in the sauce. so it is a revelation to find a restaurant where the owner is a) aware of this and b) reassuringly tells me the sauces are 'clean' ie fish with fish, veg with veg dishes ...at LAST!
Food is well presented, very tasty and the laid back funky music really great.
Having sheared clear of chinese in years I now have a favourite restaurant in Richmond!

Looking for some Chinese food locally rather than travelling into London we headed down the road from Barnes to try the Dragon Inn. On a wet and miserable evening the hot and sour soup and other assorted dishes we tucked into went a long way to restoring the spirits after a long day. A happy little place to eat with good, friendly service we shall return.

A friend recommended this restaurant to me after my disastrous visit to a Chinatown establishment. The Dragon Inn was very welcoming, smart but not stuffy and the food was amazing. All the tables were full and every dish that came out from the kitchen looked tantalising. We will definitely be returning very soon. We paid £60 for 2 starters and main courses plus a good bottle of rose, service and a doggy bag to take home. Go!
