below mediocre, ridiculous wait – I called at 11:15. At 12:35 I received lukewarm, slightly bitter shrimp fried rice and a limp egg roll. I would have done better at the mall. I won't be calling them again.
Child Labor laws – First, let me say that logging into this site to comment is a pain in the posterior part of my digestive system.
Second, as to Dragon Garden, the food is always good, and the delivery has always been good, for me. However, I tried calling in an order today and the small child they have answering the phone couldn't make heads nor tails of it. Is there a labor law violation here?
Horrible delivery times! I will never order from them again. I waited 2 hours for food that never arrived! – I ordered delivery Saturday night and they quoted me 45 minutes to an hour delivery time. 2 hours later my food had still not arrived. When I called management for a credit or refund, they showed no remorse and denied my request. I ended up taking my family out to a lovely Chinese buffet for dinner for the same price.
It's unfortunate for them that they don't put a better emphasis on customer service. My husband and I had been their customers for years. Now we will find someplace else for our take-out and delivery.
Location has changed – The location has changed to Charlotte Ave. across the street from Richland park. The food is nothing special. I got the chicken mai fun with some egg rolls. It was kind of bland. Egg rolls were just a tad greasy. The portions were very generous and the prices were good. They do have seating in the place now. Not bad but not what you can get in NYC. This place still leaves me looking for a Chinese restaurant in Nashville that doesnt taste like I am at a food court in the mall. Maybe with all the urban renewal going on we will get lucky soon.
Delicious and Inexpensive – Dragon Garden is a wonderful Chinese restaurant. The food is delicious, and it costs very little. Delivery is extremely fast as well. I highly recommend it!
This hidden find delivers some of the best Chinese food in town. – In Short
It's one of Nashville's hidden treasures. Hidden in the back of a shopping center on West End, this place is takeout and delivery only. Prime among its menu items are the five varieties of mai fun--thin rice noodles stir-fried with chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, or a combination of those ingredients. Four paper-thin pancakes come with orders of pork, chicken, shrimp or vegetable moo shu (think Chinese burritos) make great picnic items.
You won't do better in Nashville – Nashville's not been offered much credible (or very edible) Chinese food at all, and stuff that would be a joke elsewhere gets praised here--but this is one place that I've found locals raised on Chinese food in say, New York or San Francisco can and do live with happily--wishing that had more of an "eat it there" side. It's not Chinaown gourmet--but as good as good neighbohood places in those Chinese Food-friendly and knowledgeable cities. If you don't like the delivery time--call in and pick it up!
Good Food – I've been eating at this restuarant since 1999 and used to have it delivered almost every day for lunch with satisfaction. The time it takes to receive it might not be excellent but for the most part the food is great. I even go in to pick up know and the food is the same. I give them a thumbs up for the 95% of the time the food is right. I think one will enjoy this cheap eat!
i even got an eggroll;) – I called them at 1:17pm and ordered a lunch special and the guy was at my place by 1:28pm! The delivery man was very nice, but the woman on the phone was kind of hard to explain and she told me to pay in cash. It is a great deal if you have a little cash and you only want to pay 5 bucks for lunch...with a tip, of course.
I'll call them again.
every once in a while – The place is nothing special when you dine-in. But as long as you don't mind waiting a hour plus for your food that you order at Noon, you won't be disappointed. The hot and sour soup is great, but I have noticed that every luncheon special seems to have a lot of broccoli. Like I said, the delivery takes forever, but when it's been really late one of the "managers" delivered it herself with apologies. Also, there's a $.50 charge for using your debit card. Also, a deal for under $5 and the min. order is $10, not $15 like other places.
