Had the Kung Pao dish and it was excellent. The staff and the food is always great here. That is why I keep coming back.

Iv been coming to red dragon for over 10 years. This place always seems to impress as it's cheap, you get a cup of soup and an egg roll with each meal, and lastly great Asian hospitality. Keep up the good work, $6 lunch specials are hard to find in 2016.

If you love asian cuisine, you must check this place out. They're super friendly and the menu is huge. I actually think my favorite thing so far has been the egg drop soup- it's out of this world delicious and soothing to eat!

Having read several 4-5 star reviews on Tripadviser.com for Red Dragon House, I just couldn't wait to get there for my supper on a Sunday night. To my surprise, I was the first customer around 5:30pm in this large restaurant with only one waiter. To me, this restaurant founded in 1988 must have had its glorious time in the past,... More

Great Chinese Food at a reasonable price with an attentive waitstaff. It's in an older downtown area that looks like it's being revitalized and parking could be challenging...at least if you're not from the area like we were. But, I have to say...it was worth exploring an area that it seems tourists don't frequent much to get a really good... More

I stopped by for lunch as it's not far from my office. I had the General Tso's Chicken. There was no wait, it was quiet and peaceful. I was seated and waited on immediately. The chicken was real chicken not that ground up nugget stuff you get at some places. The sauce was spicy and delicious. The soup was great... More

Red Dragon House is on a quiet street in an up-and-coming neighborhood. Frequented by locals, the food is delicious and reasonably priced. We ate there many times while attending the Trampoline and Tumbling Nationals! Great for families!

i am from the East Coast and have dined in most major chinatowns nationwide and didn't know what to expect from Kansas City chinese food. I was staying downtown and found Red Dragon House nearby for takeout. The atmosphere inside is very pleasant but that doesn't save the less than stellar offerings. The egg rolls had no identifiable shrimp or... More
