Great family-owned and operated restaurant. The lo mein is excellent - not like your typical greasy lo mein from other restaurants. Everything is made-to-order, fresh as it gets. The chicken wings are amazing - perfectly crispy skin and delicious. I also love that you can customize anything to get it spicy. My husband loves the hand-wrapped cream cheese wontons and pot stickers are my favorite.
Awful.. I am not talking spice, but in preparation. Even the egg rolls are awful like fried in dirty oil! We had the following: Szchewan Beef (medium), fried noodles, Dragon special fried rice...pu pu platter, The meatless wonton was just crust, the wings were dry, the butterfly shirp were all batter..the ribs tips were in a brown gravy that was unappealing... I mean I could go on....the prices were ridiculous... no, wont' try again...
Yes, the Dragon House Cafe is excellent. Here is what I've have had and my comments -- overall good eating:
For appetizer, I like the regular Chicken Wings! Delicious and tasty. Excellent with their home made Sweet & Sour sauce (note, this is different from their Sweet & Sour Chicken sauce!) and I also like their Hot Chinese Mustard Sauce (it looks like Hot Dog Mustard) on the Chicken Wings too -- also to boot, CHEAPER than Buffolo Wings and tastier too.
Fried Rice -- I like the Subgum (Vegetarian) Fried Rice, the flavor reminds me of stuffing and I love stuffing. I also like the Shrimp Fried Rice. Yes, made with real eggs, bean sprout, and green onions --no regular onion, carrot and peas!
Egg Foo Young: -- I like the Subgum (Vegetarian) Egg Food Young, again the taste reminds me of stuffing and I love stuffing. I also like the Shrimp Egg Foo Young. Yes, made with real eggs, bean sprout, and green onions -- no regular onion, carrot and peas. The brown gravy on the Egg Foo Young is excellent and tasty too.
Subgum Chow Mein -- Celery, green pepper, red pamiento, mushroom with Chicken. Chow Mein noodle on the bottom, side of rice & topped with Cashew Nuts. Very good! I love the Shrimp Subgum Chow Mein too.
Sweet & Sour Chicken -- If you love Sweet & Sour, this is best! I also like Sweet & Sour Pork and Shrimp.
Hope you will go to this place. Support locally owned businesses!

There is a Chinese buffet across the street from Dragon House and it has more of a chaotic, noisy feeding trough feel to it. We really didn't like it much, but we had just moved to the city and didn't know any other place to go when we wanted Chinese food. One night we went to said Chinese feeding trough but they we closed for the weekend for remodeling. We just happened to spot Dragon House across the street and thought we'd try it out.
We walked in and it was quiet, calm and relaxing: a wholly different experience. We ordered the chicken finger appetizer, which my wife liked more than I did. She thought it was perfect, I thought the meat was tough.
Our entrees: she got the chicken fried rice and I got chicken lo mein. Both were phenomenal! The portions were huge, and this is coming from two people who know how to pack in some Chinese food, and we both went home with leftovers!
They even have mini cheesecakes for just over a dollar and mango ice cream for a little more. Their buffet is M-F only or special occasions, like New Years Eve.
They also have a limited delivery area in the neighborhood for a small fee.
Overall, we both very highly recommend Dragon House. We’re even lucky enough to live in the limited delivery area!
Everytime I want chinese, it's Dragon House for me, I don't get out much, so I call for delivery. The shrimp fried rice is the best in town, their delivery drivers are awesome. I order the double order of fried rice, they make it the old-fashioned way with real eggs, green onions and bean sprouts (no peas & carrots for me). It's remarkable.
Even though it's been 11 years since I moved from Columbia Heights, I still go to Dragon House when I am in the mood for Chinese Food. If you like spicy, I recommend Extra Spicy Sesame Chicken. It's awesome!
