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.

Unassuming place tucked back by the grocery store, but I keep returning with friends, boyfriend, family, etc. Sushi is lovely, always tasty and artfully presented. Service is either friendly and helpful or rude and curt, but always rushed. Every single time we've been there the server gives us maybe half a minute to look at the menu, then returns regularly...

The food is delicious. We went in for lunch. The waitress was very unfriendly and made us feel rushed. This is the 2nd time we've been, and both times the waitress asked us twice for our order(maybe 2 minutes in between each time, we needed time to look at the menu) and then a man came over to get our...

Boy! You could've knocked me over if you had told me I would find a decent AND tasty sushi place in central Virginia! We ordered several items to appease the different tastes in our group of seven. We had the "safe" California roll; the Cucumber roll; the Eel Avocado roll (one of my favorites); the Philadelphia roll; and the Spicy... More

Dragon Chef is always my Asian food, restaurant choice. They serve Chinese and Japanese food. You can either choose to sit at the hibachi tables for a show or at the regular table and booths. The sushi here has been the best I've ever tasted. The Chinese food is also good. The staff is always courteous and helpful.
