The dim dum here is seriously tasty. I took a friend because we needed to discuss a joint project in a place that wasn't too noisy, and he kept interrupting the conversation to rave about the food.

Made a reservation for a table for 2 via this app for new years eve only to notice my name wasn't written down in their book.
Luckily there was a table available and we had arrived on time and before another couple who had arrived otherwise I'm sure our table would've been given away and we would have had a longer wait.

For new years eve it was understandably quite busy but we were waiting a while at the door with no one coming over to say theyd be with us shortly,

After we were sitted the service was fine and the food was lovely too.

Once again did not disappoint. I have a very fussy nephew who for the second time ate all his food. The only thing is it is a bit chilly but food is lovely. My birthday next month so you might be seeing me again. Staff so attentive and accommodating. Well done guys

Avoid at all cost! Service was terrible and food was small portions. When we said we wouldn't pay the service charge, the rude waiter said we should never come again as they would not serve us??!! Disgusting behaviour, he literally dropped our food and left and wanted us to pay service charge? Jog on!

Excellent food and service and very good value. But ambience is lacking and feels cold inside - this is probably as the restaurant is quite cavernous - needs softer lighting and heating to be turned up.

I invited a group of 20+ to celebrate my graduation. The main server was very helpful and the food arrived quickly. It was hot and tasty. The decor is very authentic and looked great in photos. I would definitely go back.

My family enjoyed the food compared to a lot of other restaurants we have been to. Thumbs up for the service and efficiency of all the staff, however it was a bit more pricey than I expected especially the service charge.
It was an enjoyable experience and will definitely visit again.

Best chinese food I have ever had. The menu choices were outstanding and very rich with dished I had not seen before in any of the chinese restaurant I have been before.
My best choices were the fish section that was outstanding.
Pricing was good and food excellent.

The Dragon Castle serves the best Cantonese food we have eaten outside Hong Kong in a noisy and bustling atmosphere. The dim sum is excellent, do try the xao long bai (soup dumpling) and the turnip cake. The service can be a bit erratic at busy times. Excellent for large parties.

We chose two menus for four of us - and the food was disappointing - all a bit sticky - probably designed for Europeans and we realised we would have done much better to choose directly from the menu - previous meals have usually been at lunch time with dim sum which were much better.

The only negative thing I’ll say is the waiters don’t even give you time to react before they leave your table. Other than that, the food was great. Dumplings were juicy. Just really wonderful all over. Would highly recommend, great place to enjoy a meal for one

I’ve never felt more unwelcome in a restaurant before. As soon as we arrived they ushered us to our seat in a rude and unfriendly manner. They took an age to take our order and were abrupt when doing it. Drinks orders were forgotten or delivered very late. They refused to serve us Dim Sum saying it was finished then served to another family whilst we were there. I wouldn’t have paid the service were it not for the fact we were a group of 8. The food was nice but the experience was ruined by the rude and inattentive waitstaff.

Big, fun, buzzy venue and food was good. But service was incredibly slow and brusque. We were stuck down the back near an outside door so it was cold as well. Good for a big group if you have time to spare.
