Have had many meals both in and take away ! Don't be fooled by a slightly tatty exterior the food and staff at this Chinese are very good and deserve a visit !! There is the usual vast menu I am no expert but I think they cook without some of the less natural products ? We never have the... More

In town with friends who remembered visiting a Chinese restaurant that they use to frequent. Had a major uplift since their last visit and looked inviting. Ordered one of the feast menus and the three courses were plentiful. Every dish was delightful and the portion sizes were plentiful. The staff were friendly and very attentive and we had a good...

Ordered a takeaway from here this evening... It was disgusting. The chips were uncooked, the pork balls were actually just balls of gristly pork fat that were battered, the sweet and sour sauce accompaniment was not sweet and sour but more of a soy sauce, the chicken curry was 99% mushrooms, the chicken chow mein was so greasy after you...

We tried Dragon Tan as we are in search of a really good Chinese takeaway in Tunbridge Wells as our previous favourite (Top Wok) has gone downhill. The delivery came just outside of the advised time, but that's fine. The crispy chilli beef was not crispy or chilli but rather laced in ginger. Yuk! Not great. The roast pork chow... More

We had a very enjoyable meal. Exceptional food. So yummy. Service was fantastic. We have takeaways most weekends from here (which are delicious) and as a treat went to eat in and we had a delicious meal. 5 star * Thank you.

I asked for a takeaway at 1945 and it was delivered on time. The food was excellent. Restaurant appeared to have had a major face lift from the Honeymoon days. Worth a visit in the future.

Honeymoon had gone backward over the years so we started to use other Chinese restaurants in town but our favourite closed some time ago. So this was our first time to Dragon Tan and we were impressed. All round very good. Not excellent but very good. Food was fresh, nicely cooked and good sized portions. Service was very friendly and... More

Just returned home from enjoying the most delicious meal cooked by the very talented Lewis. It was suggested we eat something different for a change from our usual "feast" and we were so glad we allowed Lewis to use his imagination and give us other dishes to try. Can only rave about each course which was different and totally stunning.... More
