The restaurant’s signature soup was really very tasty with authentic Chinese mushroom and hot. The plain vegetable dish was also authentic. What I found disappointing was the egg fried rice and the restaurants signature noodle dish ( minus the prawns) - both were cold and...lacked any taste except for the salt.More

We revisited this Dragon City Chinese Restaurant after a long time. The quality of soup and food was good. Presentation was also very nice. For me this is one of the Good Chinese restaurants in Islamabad. We shall definitely visit this restaurant again and hope...that they will keep the standard of food.More

We ordered home delivery and had a pleasant lunch. Eating with kids, the beef chowmain and the chicken with almonds were perfect non-spicy options. I also recommend the dumplings but the filling contains chillies.

First feeling on entrance is of a dull and gloomy place. They need to work on improving the ambiance. Quality of cooking is quite good but they also don't seem to get out of the habit of putting a Pakistani taste in Chinese food by...making it too hot and spicy. We ordered special soup, beef with onions and chilies and spicy pepper fish. Beef was well cooked, had a Chinese flavor to it but was too hot. Fish was a bit too oily, too spicy and didn't look a Chinese dish at all. The special soup was fairly good. Service is efficient and prompt. It will cost you 1200 to 1600 per person at an average. There is enough parking place at night but during lunch time, parking could be a problem. Overall a nice eating place but not something that will attract you to go again and again.More

The restaurant is our all time favorite for chinese cuisine. It’s an economical place with nice and consistent quality. The ambiance is not very impressive but is acceptable. Juha Fish is a must try! And kids are specifically fond of their chicken honey wings with...hot and sour soup.More

I love to have their dragon special soup all the time. Its amazing but the ambiance and the crowd is a bit dull. They need to amp up their decor and renew the furniture to give it that extra glamorous and attractive look. Also some...of their food like the chicken chow mein is a little bit too oily. With a little help they can improve a lot better. Rest is all good.More

THis restaurant is in a great location but that is it. Unfortunately flavours/sauces have been adapted to suit the local taste.

This is one of the early Chinese restaurants in town. It is recently renovated and have ample parking space. Ambience is lovely. While I like their food overall, the restaurant struggle to keep consistent quality - perhaps the cooks change a bit more often!

Dragon City is located in Blue Area. Very spacious, gives an open feel. It's located at the same place since pretty long probably 15 years or so. The food is good, portions are adequate and serving time is fast. Their special soup is worth trying....They serve complementary fish crackers as starters and green tea after your lunch/dinner. Overall economical and offers good value for money. Recommended for small as well as large gatherings.More
