Cuisine: Chinese, dim sum
After coming back from our holiday in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Bali, I was really craving some Asian food like dim sum so I decided to take the family out to Dragon Palace. None of my family have been here before so it was a new experience for them. We got there around 12:15pm on a Sunday and there was a large crowd of people waiting to get a table. I quickly grabbed a ticket and waited. After a reasonable wait, we got a table, upstairs. I haven’t been to the upstairs area before and I expected it to be an open area like the down stairs. There is an open area but also many rooms where we were seated on lowish lounge chairs as opposed to table and chairs. Having our own private room made it far more enjoyable. Initially, I thought that the family wouldn’t be happy sitting on the lowish lounge chairs but they were. I also thought we might be a bit isolated and the food wouldn’t come around all that often but I was very wrong. The service is excellent and the food trolleys kept on coming and I kept on ordering. Since I’ve been here 3 times before, I knew what to order but I also ordered some new dishes.
A lot of the dishes are prawn based so I ordered many of these. I particularly like the salt and pepper squid, BBQ pork buns, custard egg tarts and my favourite, the snow mountain egg custard tarts. I also ordered pork spare ribs and chilli chicken which I haven’t tried before. We ate heaps, drank lots of Chinese tea and the family really enjoyed the food here as did I.
Verdict: The food is always delicious and the whole family loved it. Among the 6 of us, the bill came to under $100 so for around $16 a head, you can’t get better value. The dishes don’t skimp on meat and are generous in that regard. The upstairs private room added that extra special touch as well as being seated on the lounge chairs.
Recommendation: Highly Recommend
