👍👍 The most efficient service I have received- you make it look easy. I placed an order for delivery and received it within a matter of ten minutes- and it was an absolute life saver as I’d already been late on arranging lunch. Chinese dragon is such a classic and hence, I have to admit I underestimate... People often mention service, experience, fried, rice, Chinese, quality, good, restaurant, chicken, portion,

    The worst experience had in this Nugegoda outlet! They only give permissiom to have our dinner at their ground floor! And we ordered a chicken large fried rice with some spring rolls! The potion was too small but they charged it as a xxl meal! Don't even think to try this oulet!

    The most efficient service I have received- you make it look easy. I placed an order for delivery and received it within a matter of ten minutes- and it was an absolute life saver as I’d already been late on arranging lunch. Chinese dragon is such a classic and hence, I have to admit I underestimated and kept low expectations to their standard and quality but I must say you most literally delivered- on time, with the best service. The food was packed with flavour- though it could use a little refining. I had to make adjustments to my payment method and they reassured me that it was not a problem at all! You matched up almost perfectly in terms of quality and quantity. I really appreciate your timeless, efficient service- impeccable. Thank you for holding up your standard. Keep up the good work!

    There is not enough people to serve, only one person is serving many customers and this is a very small place worse than road side food shops. Didn't expect Chinese dragon quality of place to be very low. They have only Zero coke bevarage for people to order.

    Service was cordial and efficient, atmosphere was OK... but their prices have gone up resulting in spending over 13k without tip for a family of four... won't be frequenting them at this rate...

    Nothing to write home about. Staff is nice enough not to disturb you every 10 minutes and the place was okay. Looked a bit run down. But not too bad. Prices are okay for portion sizes. You can expect to spend 5K for 2 people.

    Easy to find as it is on High Level road just opposite NoLimit.The restaurant is large, clean, cold and comfortable. There are only 3 tables downstairs; the rest are upstairs. We had chicken fried rice, chicken fried noodles, sliced beef, hot butter cuttlefish and chocolate biscuit pudding. The food is pretty good, although it is quite expensive for what it is. The hot butter cuttlefish definitely isn't the best in the world (which is what they claim outside their window). It is good, but the batter is very light and doesn't have much flavour. The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the price. If they reduced the prices this would be an easy recommendation for anyone.

    This Nugegoda outlet opened for dine in from 25th March 2022 after the covid. They are serving only in ground floor so you are having just 3 tables with one steward. So you have to wait like 45 minutes to serve your order since that one steward have to lookafter both dine in and take away orders. They said there is an 15% OFF discount for 1st 1000 dine in customers after they have started dine in after covid, but they will forget to include it when they raise the bill. So cross check before you pay the bill whether they have deducted the discount or not. So I am not happy with their dine in after re opening. But I have visited several times 2 or 3 years back before covid they are superb and served good portions of food now that also has reduced the portion size I think due to economic crisis in country. Anyway the management you have to look into these since this place was really good earlier.

    The worst food experience ever. Ordered a large chicken & shrimp fried rice for 2180/= , they said its more than enough for 2 person. But the portion was barely enough for an average male. The quality was disgusting it was just a fried rice mixed with 3 or 5 pieces of chicken and 1 or 2 shrimps cut into pieces. There was only one waiter to serve the whole floor, poor boy was helpless and running all over with the orders. They charged 2180 for the rice, 230/= for 2 coke bottles and 241/= as service charge with a total cost of 2651/=. Not worth at all and would never recommend to anyone.

    Too much price tags. For 9 people without any dessert, the bill was above 31,000/=. Furthermore, at the end of the meal, they ask us to do a favor & give 5 start Google ratings. I don't agree for this kind of request. If they can impress the customer, the customer will rate them for sure without any request.

    Food was good and portion size is exactly enough for person depending on what you buy. They could increase size of a portion as per the price. Prices are what you would expect, not too expensive. Parking available infront of the restaurant. They offer takeout & available on Uber as well. Accepts card payments

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at the Chinese Dragon Cafe in Nugegoda, and it was a fantastic experience. The ambiance was welcoming, and the staff was friendly and attentive. The menu offered a wide variety of delicious Chinese dishes, and I was particularly impressed with the freshness and quality of the ingredients. The flavors were authentic, and the portion sizes were generous. I ordered chicken fried rice and Dragon's devilled fish and it was simply outstanding. The flavors were well-balanced, and it was cooked to perfection. Overall, I highly recommend the Chinese Dragon Cafe for anyone looking for a great Chinese dining experience in Nugegoda.

    We used to eat from here a year back, and the quality has dropped extremely low. I purchased a fried noodles just a week ago and it was very bland and not up up to standard. Definitely not worth the price.

    Experienced a good service at their Nugegoda branch with dine in and take away . Food is delicious and the service is excellent. Sometimes the parking is full and better if they have a security personnel there to guide when parking and help specially taking the vehicle out to the busy main road.

    I do not recommend anyone to go there. I got very bad customer service and bad experience today. Food also very bad. I ordered fried rice with chicken and prawns. They delivered to me only prawns which is not good at all only have 3 prawns pieces. It almost like a vegetable rice. But they charged 2255 rupees with service charge. Funny thing is cashier charge 3916 rupees from my bank card which i noticed later. When i asked they said it was a mistake, actually this restaurant is very bad. Don't go there and don't waste your money.

    Menu is too expensive just for a normal restaurant. They just have only one waiter boy for the whole restaurant and doesn’t offer any printed bill. Taking the wholesome of the profit.

  • 1/5 Vinuka F. 4 months ago on Google • 28 reviews
    From the outset, the prices on the menu are astonishingly high, setting expectations for a premium dining experience. Unfortunately, the reality couldn't be further from this expectation. The cost of a meal here is unjustifiably steep for the quality of food served, making it a complete rip-off.
