“Ideal for dinner, Dragon Inn has a comfortable, nostalgic ambience and their seafood is exceptional. It’s one of the best restaurants near where I live and I’ve been coming here for more than 20 years. I recommend all of their seafood dishes and the siu mei.”

“Lots of chefs come here after work and it’s my first choice for a late-night eatery. Their stir-fries served straight from the hot wok (I like the fried vermicelli with lobster) are absolutely delicious while the casual ambience allows you to relax and chat.”

“My parents used to bring me here every week and as a kid, I was amazed by the dim sum and stir-fry dishes. Now they have a lot of branches in Hong Kong so it’s easy to find one anywhere. Frequented by local families, it’s a great way for visitors to sample authentic Chinese food. Order the har gau dumplings — the shrimp tastes very fresh and the skin is thin and soft.”
