I agree with those who love this restaurant. I've been going to Jade Dragon constantly for the past 8 years or so and I love it. I always opt for the Beef Wonton Soup and the Lemon Chicken.
But alas, this place is not perfect. I'll admit that their dishes can be hit or miss, but more often than not, it'll be a good experience. The waiters there are very nice and attentive.
It is not stuffy and it is very casual. Overall is a great restaurant
I v'e Been going to this : Same Chinese Restaurant since High school . I used to stop by and pick up these Steamed Buns that were like .85 cents a piece . But thats not the reason I 've Kept going . It is The Undisputed King of Chinese food in all of Daly city . Heres the Secret . Unusual Quality . Unusual ....Meaning Very Good . The Kind of Egg Roll they serve is an old Cantonese Recipe so I'm Told . The Sweet and Sour Is Deep fried so its crunchy then ....drowned in the sauce . The Hong kong Style Noodle dishes ( jim mein ) are so delicious and scrumptious ....with so many kinds of combinations . The Pork Fried Rice ( big chunks of meat ) Bbq Pork or regular pork . The Mongolian Beef is very very Rich and spicy . But ....Here comes the dish to top them all :
It happens to be the house special : The Jade dragon Fried chicken . The batter they use to deep fry to a golden ( not burnt ) Brown ....and perfect for dipping into the sweet and sour sauce they serve it with .
In a Nutshell ............This is The Place for Chinese . Wait till you read the entire Menu . Your Dining Experience will be Memorable . TWO THINGS TO REMEMBER : Must try ......The Egg Roll - and- The House special . Then .....You'll see why .
