2730 East Lakin Dr (at Steves Blvd), Flagstaff
Flagstaff’s most upscale Chinese option, the Golden Dragon has recently been remodeled and revamped with a new owner (who used to own Hot Wok Express but recently sold it to Hot Wok's cook) and slightly new name. (It was Golden Dragon Bowl).
The building is ornate and colorful both inside and out. The staff here is friendly and eager to make recommendations if you're not sure what you want to get after browsing the menus. There are so many choices because Golden Dragon has two menus - both are scanned in below, as they don't have a website anywhere. One with classic American Chinese favorites, including lunch specials. The other, which they call their “authentic Chinese Cuisine” menu, has more unique offerings.
Among the dishes to try here: Hot Chili Oil beef, chicken or pork; beef Chow Fun; Steamed Veggie Dumplings; Szechuan Shrimp; Singapore Curry Noodles; and the House Special Pan-Fried Noodles. But then everything sweet and sour here is sure to please the taste buds too.
Portions can be on the smaller side, especially on the lunch combos. But the quality of food and service more than make up for that. We find it a delight to eat here.
