Went here for a quick lunch. The food was very good but the service was okay. We ordered the same thing. One came out and we had to ask what happened to the other order. Staff was polite and friendly. Other wise a good experience.
Dragon-i in Gurney Plaza has a long queue at lunch and dinner time so go early if you are not prepared to wait. The ambience is alright, similar to other upmarket Chinese restaurants. Service here is fast and once the orders are taken it takes about 15-20 minutes for the food to arrive. It can be a tad noisy when the restaurant is full but nothing unsettling. The single-portion double-boiled herbal chicken is flavourful, palatable and it's nourishing for both young and old. Highly recommended. The Ma Po Tofu is silky smooth, appetizing, a bit spicy and goes well with steamed white rice. The Crispy noodles in Seafood gravy is nice but the crispiness of the thin noodles did not last long when mixed with the seafood gravy. The fried la mien (hand-pulled noodles) dish is alright but the noodle are a little too firm to the taste; it would be just al dente/springy if it had come in a soup form. The fried radish cake cubes are soft and fragrant with the added chopped preserved radish and short fat taugeh (yam bean sprouts). We also ordered home-made fried battered taukwa (bean curds) and it comes with a nice crunchy coating over the taukwa cubes; tastes great with the Thai-chilli dipping sauce. Replacement of plates, chopsticks, bowls, forks and spoons was quick and so was the replenishing of beverages. The price is on the higher side but it is to be expected. There is a wide selection of other dishes on the menu.
Malay-style fried rice with a bit of satay and shrimp cakes. Putting a fried egg on top of the rice is the standard method, like Hong Kong’s fried rice with a bottom.
If you like spicy food, don’t miss this one, it’s more spicy and more delicious
Ramen is normal, it is cut noodles, Xiao Long Bao is decent.
