I'm a big fan of Chinese cuisine and May Dragon did not let me down! The flavor of everything was great and their fried rice was especially good. My only complaint was the portion size seemed a little on the small size for the price I paid.

We had the Combination LoMein (chicken, shrimp, beef and pork) large portion, so plenty for leftovers which were even better the next day. Crispy Duck was good - chopped so there were a lot of little bones so be careful. Crab Rangoon was different, just in a wonton wrapper and not much crab. Tea was great and service was outstanding.

I decided to take work colleagues to May Dragon for lunch. All three of us were not happy with food and quality. The decor and service were ok. Dark chicken being used in Sichuan chicken, salty chicken lowmein and so so chicken fried rice.Sorry May Dragon, we were dissatisfied.

Just because the owner has his picture taken with celebrities and Presidents doesn't mean his restaurant serves good food. The restaurant is attractive. The staff is friendly and the service is fine. But the food itself is on a par with delivery Chinese. We were with a group. Everyone ordered a regular meal and only one person ordered egg rolls,... More

I would never eat here again. The place is dirty and smells and is probably an indication of how the kitchen is kept. The chicken was like rubber and the rice was even bad. There are way better options!

Have been going to this restaurant for years, but now finally live in the area. A definite go-to when you want classic Chinese food. Beautiful romantic setting and top-notch food and service. Glad I'm nearby, but I'd go the distance.

We went here with a groupon but after reading some of the reviews we were left wondering if we had made a mistake. Nothing could be further from the truth.The service was excellent, all our meals were great (5 different platters),nice ambiance. highly recommended. The prices were reasonable and were made even better with a groupon.

Entertainment was great, service was worse than terrible. Wish I could give a review on the food, but was never served. Waited over an hour after ordering before we left - still with no food. Restaurant looked semi-full but not especially busy, in all it was a very disappointing experience.

Interior is nice and piano Music in bar is nice. However food and service is poor, so I won't be returning. It's sad since This restaurant is in a great location and is nice inside plus it's been there many years. But one dish we ordered wasn't prepared as described on the menu and was not edible. The fried rice... More
