When we want Chinese food we always order from New First Dragon. The food is always delicious and plentiful. The prices are always reasonable as well. If they say take out will be ready in 15 min. it is always ready when we get there to pick it up. They are always attentive and friendly and very professional. I highly... More

Been missing "Happy Family" in Seneca Falls, and didn't want to travel too far from home, so decided to try this Eat in or Take out Chinese Restaurant (took out). Fellows were friendly, efficient, and had an sitting area set aside for Take out customers. Will be back for Eat in Experience. Wonton soup, egg rolls, and fried rice were... More

We haven't dined in, only take-out several times. Soooo good. I love their shrimp fried rice. The shrimp in lobster sauce was ridiculously good. It's tough to find good Chinese food where we live so coming here was great. After the first time, we just kept going back. It's that good.

Very fast and fresh Chinese food. Fairly standard American-Chinese menu, everything is prepared on the spot for you. Friendly service, good value.

My girlfriend and I went to have dinner the other night. She prefers Japanese to Chinese food. I like both. So we had some of both. Everything was tasty and well portioned. Zippy too. All in all, I would recommend the place.

It's hard sometimes to find different vegetarian items on a Chinese menu other than fried rice, lo mein etc. I ordered General Tso's Tofu and Vegetable Chow Mei Fun the other night. General Tso's tofu was excellent and enough for me to get two more meals out of my order. It had the right amount of spice in it. The... More

Awesome Food! I absolutely would go time and time again! Lo-Mein is off the hook! My second favorite is the Shrimp in Garlic Sauce.

A Chinese restaurant with a decent sushi chef is a great combo. I chowed down on some tuna rolls and a crisp (though slightly warm) seaweed salad. My man got the Sushi Sashimi combination and about 4 large servings of hot sake. He may have enjoyed dinner more than I did, but we were both satisfied. The kitschy sign on... More

Looking at the restaurant you wouldn't guess that the food is as good as it was. The restaurant recently went through a makeover and was really nice. We went on a weekday and my 2 year old wasn't really into the food. We saw a plate of cherry tomatoes on the next table and asked if my 2 year old... More
