The Dragon Bowl Restaurant has been a fixture in New Glasgow for more then 40 years and its food has gone though many revisions. Overall we have found the latest rendition fair. It is a shame really, with the closing of Mings Restaurant the Dragon bowl has a unique opportunity to capture the market left however they have not risen... More

New Management, lower prices, delicious combination plates. They got rid of the buffet, but the quantity you get in the combos more than make up for it. The quality is far superior to anything they've had in the past. They've added a Thai menu as well, Delicious.

Showed up 15 minutes before closing and was greeted friendly to come in. Was served some good Chinese food within 20 minutes of sitting down. Very nice and accommodating for being so late.

We were desperate for open restaurants in New Glasgow at 7pm after Labour Day!! Everything that Trip Advisor said was open was closed... We were not looking for Chinese, but it was open. Friendly staff, fairly good food. Dated decor. Bathroom in basement. It was an ok experience.

This is one of 4 or more Chinese/Asian food restaurants in the immediate area, and is likely the most in need of upgrades all around. The building is tired looking from the road, the interior decor is aged and questionably clean, and the food is mediocre. The one bright spot that this place has to offer is the return of... More

It's pretty dirty and the menu is basically 100% deep fried. We always call it the dirty bowl of the toilet bowl. Plus I had hairs in my food several times

Well if you like eating food that comes out of the dumpster this is right up your alley. The food seemed to be freezer burnt or to much starch. The buffet lacked chinese food most the items were items you would find at a pub. The service was ok but only one person seemed to be working while others were... More
