Every time I go to this resturant it never disappoints. The food is amazing and the serve matches well in hand. I love how the waiter packs our container for us so that it fits properly. By the way their sushi is the best.

Going to Dragon Chef is a great dining experience. Your food is cooked on the hibachi grill right in front of you, and it has always been excellent. Staff very attentive and friendly, especially the chef.

Took the family here and we had a good time. The food was alright but nothing to write home about. I'd probably go back again.
