We've been going here for many years and actually the food is good, but more than the dated decor lets it down. The floor appeared to have been washed with a greasy mop and was extremely slippery. In fact, one customer walked in and slipped straight over. A health and safety nghtmare! Also, it is not ok for the waitress... More

Drinks were ridiculously expensive. Food was bland and dry. Hardly any meat in the dishes, it was bulked out with vegetables. Probably the worst Chinese meal I've ever had.

I eat chinese all the time, and have tried chineses all over Plymouth and this one tops them all whether you sit in or takeaway! Go there all the time after work and the owner is a lovely woman as well always chatting and hurrying up our food if we're in a hurry :) Can't wait to go again!

With family visiting from 300 miles away we booke here 4 days before we wanted to eat. Turned up to find a waitress gas accidentally sat another group in a small ante room set aside for our party of 9. This party refused to move. An older Asian waitress just constantly repeated they booked before you buy would not or... More

Opposite Plymouth Gin on Southside Street, on the Barbican, is an entrance with a twisty metal staircase. Follow this staircase...and like Jack & the beanstalk, you will find, not a golden goose but A CRYSTAL DRAGON and have a wonderful, authentic Chinese meal. We have visited several times now, and despite season changes, the standard of cooking is superb. Tastebuds... More

Visited this restaurant this evening - have previously eaten here as well as ordered take aways. Service has always left much to be desired but this evening took the biscuit. One table occupied and the waiter was still so overwhelmed and unable to seat us - we were left stood at the door for over 5 minutes before we left.... More

It is with real regret that I find myself having to write this poor review after our recent experience with this restaurant's poor customer service. We used to use this restaurant for Chinese takeaway on a very regular basis as we want to support businesses in our locality. However, we will never use this restaurant ever again. My wife was...
