“Authentic food - horrible service”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

It was my second visit zum Drachen. The first was right after the opening and it already had been a soso experience that i had discounted as probably related to the stress of getting a new place running.

Now, several month later, i paid a second visit, and not much had changed. While the food was good, and probably the most authentic chinese to get in this region, he service was truly horrible. Poor welcome, quick dispatch to a table, bad mooded order- taking, poor, unprofessional and hectic service, and left waiting for way too long before paying, no asking if we liked it, no good-bye. Worse service i experienced in years.

So if you can cope with that type of service, you might want to try the drachen, as the food is good. Otherwise, and if you are looking for a nice evening: avoid.
