Food is so fresh and prepared and served very quickly. Service is professional and friendly. Lunch menu is diverse. Lots of food for the money.

No matter why we have traveled to Prescott, we stop here for lunch. As a matter of fact, we have driven the hour and a half from our house just to have lunch at the Canton Dragon!

It's fast, fresh, friendly, great quality and reasonably priced! It always comes out hot and the portions are great! I always have something to take home as a late night snack!

I have never walked away disappointed and neither have the people that either went with or recommended the place to.

Go order the Chicken Chow Mein! Then try the Moo Goo Gai Pan! After that get the Coconut Shrimp! MMMM!

“one of prescott's very best - but you have to know the tricks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

This restaurant stands way above the rest. We have eaten there maybe 20 times and have this to say: We have been massively disappointed with the food offerings in Prescott. The food tends to be unmemorable and the prices at least 20 - 60% overpriced. Canton Dragon stands almost alone (there is also Plaza Bonita's Mexican that is good and reasonable) as a place that serves both great food at fair prices. Now let me first say that i am a totally stuck up NYer born and bred and so with such choice, and so many chinese spots... i have become picky. Canton Dragon has been trying to figure out the Caucasian market now for a while and as such have changed some of their recipes to try and fit our tastes. For example, they are not dumping loads of salt (I hope its not MSG) into the recipes and the first night we tried that, we found the food inedible. The hostess told us the trick to ask for the food without additional salt... and since then we've been exceedingly pleased. Without that trick, your food will be WAY over salted... but with it... you will eat food that rivals any of the excellent (but not outstanding) Chinese restaurants of Manhattan and surroundings. My family has visited many times and they have all agreed. Now we are basically vegetarian so we have to adjust their menus... but we have found some great concoctions: Their menud eggplant and tofu is amazing (but a bit on the salty side). Their non-menued: fried tofu with lobster sauce (white variety) is a delicate, tasty excellent choice. their soups are great, their egg rolls are veg and quite good. We can't speak about the meat dishes but for veg fair, we have found the place to be our favorite restaurant (by far) in prescott with few others even coming close to second. Four hungry adults and two children can leave for under 50$ (without tip) with doggie bags so the price, by comparison to other Prescott places, is excellent. In summary, a GREAT restaurant with good (but shy, Chinese) service, a decent non-distracting ambiance, GREAT food (if you ask for the low-salt options) and GREAT prices (by Prescott's outrageous standards). our favorite spot and only review we have written about a restaurant in town because it is out-standing in those qualities.

“Edible, but nothing more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

My wife and I went to Canton Dragon for lunch. The egg foo young my wife ordered was actually a deep fat fried fritter of some sort. It was covered with what appeared to be chicken with frozen peas and carrots in a commercial chicken-base sauce. My eggplant dish was in a sauce that appeared to be nothing more than vinegar and sugar, perhaps thinned out by water. The egg rolls and fried rice were completely nondescript. The egg drop soup tasted of commercial chicken-base. Overall, there was nothing about any of the dishes that tasted Chinese. Rather, they tasted like commercial American cafeteria dishes. On the upside, the service was quick and pleasant.
