Having had a nice meal here recently we decided to treat ourselves again. The restaurant was very busy which in the times we are in was great to see. We once again opted for the £20pp set meal, prawn crackers, duck n pancakes, mix starters,...soup and choice of 4 main dishes. All were excellent. We washed this down with a bottle of house white. The food was excellent as was the service and the restaurant had a real buzz about it. ExcellentMore

No been here for many years, was a regular under the ownership/management of Charlie Lamb. Here’d mixed reviews but decided to give the place another visit, the restaurant was quiet busy on our visit which was good to see, we were greeted and seated promptly,...given paper menus, one was all you can eat (with limits I must add) the other Ala carte, now as I said at the start under the management of Mr Lamb the menus were encased in proper menu covers not just printed on A4! The restaurant is obviously going for a much more seat,Order, eat, leave route. We opted for “all you can eat” and a bottle of wine, food came promptly duck with pancakes then mix starters then soup and then our 4 main dishes. The food I have to say was of very good quality, hot, reasonable sized portions and very flavoursome and for what you pay good value. To sum up, this restaurant may not be aiming for the more high end diner as once did but for a plateful of Chinese of good quality at a reasonable price you can’t go wrong.More

As a person who loves Chinese I can not recommend not getting a takeaway from here. Me abs my partner stayed in leysdown having a relaxed weekend that was well needed. After drinks on the Friday night, I love nothing better on a Saturday with...a minor hangover, ordering a Chinese it is my ritual. Having had this Chinese when we spent the weekend just before COVID I was really looking forward to it and didn’t mind the 20 minute drive to sheerness to get it. Got home, dished up all ready for Britain’s got talent, tucked in. And threw it in the bin. Never have I ever even having a rare few bad Chinese’s threw one away. The watery taste, the off smell and sloppy mess we had was not worth the 35 pound I had spent. And like I said I have had a fair few bad ones. Ended up driving back that way and had a burger kings instead. Absolutely livid!More

Managed to get a table on a Friday night just as we had arrived in sheerness for a week's holiday. It was booked for 8.30 but they rang at 7.45 to say they had a table free. Staff very attentive and extremely friendly. We ordered...the wrong bottle of wine but they were quick to replace it without charging for it. Food was delicious. Loved the atmosphere. Well worth a visit!More

I have to say,this has to be the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever visited and eaten in! Come on guys! It’s your livelihood,it’s so drab,not very welcoming at all. We were seated,then along came a few prawn crackers,you know most restaurants give a basket!...No! Just a small plate with a very on. We ordered. Service was quick,I ordered barbecued ribs, what came was ribs with this red sauce? I take it was sweet and sour? I thought Ok,they were Ok. Then this chicken satee came,which I thought would come on skewers,but didn’t,that looked Ok. Then next came chicken chop suey now this looked so animic and also arrived was the stir-fried mixed vegetables which looked like the chop suey! Now the only good dish that came we’re the Singapore noodles,but other from that,visually it’s was awful,I like Chinese food for its taste and it’s colour! This had neither,I don’t think much pride was put into these dishes, and the Chinese roast pork! It was slice pork with this red liquid poured over it. Now if this is the best Chinese on sheppy,then don’t go!More

Since I was a child we have been getting takeaways and having meals at The Dragon, the service and quality of the food has never faltered. Their deep fried icecream is fantastic and they perfectly accommodate large families/functions. The staff are polite and courteous.

Food lacked flavour and very bland since changing staff and cooks they have in my opinion gone from best to worst takeaway on sheppey, which is a shame as you could always rely on their dishes
