The Golden Dragon Restaurant is located in the plush Taj Samudra Hotel in the heart of Colombo. The only negative is that the hotel is in the midst of a high security zone and hence getting to and from the restaurant can be a bit time consuming because of the many security checks along the way. Once you get there, the great ambience of the place tends to make you feel relaxed and at home. This is helped by the excellent service rendered by superbly trained and very friendly staff. The interior decor is very tastefully done and gives a real Chinese feel to the place. The Golden Dragon can seat 110 diners and has a private dining room that can seat accommodate 12, if one is looking for added privacy. Although the restaurant is closed during lunch time, the same food can be ordered from the hotel’s Coffee Shop at lunch time at the same prices. 

The food is out of this world. There is a very wide choice on the menu. When trying to decide what to eat, getting advice from the knowledgeable staff is recommended unless you know about the various dishes from previous visits. Some of the favourites are; Peking Duck with Pancakes (quite expensive), Golden Fried Crispy Prawn, Crunchy Baby Corn and Mushroom with Pepper,  Shark Fin Soup with Crabmeat, Lobster with Hot Garlic Sauce, Singapore Chilli Crab and Crispy Whole Grouper. For the thirsty, the bar is very well stocked with all kinds of beers, cocktails and other drinks. The wine list is very extensive with a bottle costing upwards of USD 20. 

The Golden Dragon is highly recommended for anyone looking to eat great Chinese food in very good surroundings.

    This page is our (my wife and myself) effort to give you the benefit of our opinion of as many Eating Out locations in Sri Lanka as possible. We have eaten at least 2 times in each of the restaraunts reviewed.
    We have rated all locations on Quality of Food, Service and Ambience. Each location has also been given an Overall Rating. A scale of 1 to 5 has been used, 1 being poor and 5 being excellent.  
    Pricing estimates are based on each person having 2 courses (out of starter, main meal and dessert) as well as a soft drink. Liquor and coffee prices are excluded. Pricing is categorised as follows:
