I have never reviewed anything before, in fact I have joined trip advisor just to warn people about this place. The food was that bad. The hoisin and sweet chilli sauce were obviously watered down. Then there were the 'crispy prawns with creamy sauce' this turned out to be battered prawns with mayonnaise squirted on top - they were disgusting... More

Freshly cooked great food, ordered many starters, all arrived well presented and tasted great. The kids then ordered more starters! We moved onto Peking duck and pancakes, we waited quite a while for the duck and pancakes- veg and sauce dipped and eaten by the time the duck arrived- staff noticed and bought out more. Onto mains, unless we stated,... More

Bought a takeaway, arrived quickly and the driver was very friendly, this is where it ends though I'm afraid. Very disappointing food, the sweet and sour sauce was really sour. The chicken balls batter was really soft, the spare ribs were very fatty. The food just wasn't very good. We have had food from here before and we thought it... More

We've been here many times as live locally but haven't been for a few months. It was a Thursday evening and not especially busy, approximately 5 tables. The food was pretty good as always but is served in fits & starts, we'd almost finished one starter before another arrived. The portions are small but that suits us as you can... More

We have been visiting The Happy Dragon for many years but may not again. From the non exsistant welcome to absent goodbye the staff were disinterested at best. The food was as good as ever although l agree with other reviewers that the portions are becoming smaller. I had to ask four times for some prawn crackers and twice for... More

Firstly I only usually give positive reviews. I haven't eaten at or had a takeaway from this restaurant for at least 2 years due to previous poor customer service experience. I live locally and decided to give them a go! Whilst on the phone placing my order I felt that the man on the other end of the phone was... More

Thought we would give it a go as a take out for a special treat. Very mediocre food to be honest. Noodles were weird tasting and wet and other dishes just weren't up to scratch for the money. There are much better options around.

We went there for Valentines night dinner. Having lived in the Bay, this used to be our favourite Chinese restaurant where the service and food were always "top notch". Unfortunately not this time. Having arrived it was not very busy, however we hardly sat down, and there was a waitress asking if we wanted our starters. We had not even... More
