Dragon Village is family owned and operated, and the food has always been consistently good. Service is also very good. Usually full but seldom a wait. Prices are very reasonable. We have been going for 5-6 years and have never heard a complaint from anyone we know.

Good Chinese Restaurant

The food is good, not gourmet by any means, but certainly nothing to complain about. The food comes out hot, fresh, and in the case of Sizzling dishes, well... sizzling. The pricing is very reasonable; lunch specials are inexpensive, and dinner portions are generous enough so that my family and I often leave with leftovers. The service is very attentative and if you're not bothered by being asked if you want a refill a few too many times or just happen to drink really fast (:P) it's fine. It gets pretty busy sometimes, and if you have to wait for a table to open up, it's probably a sign that the service will be worse than usual. At those times, I actually would *not* recommend eating there, as your meal is likely to feel fairly rushed.

Now, probably more importantly, to dispel some of the previous reviews: the coercion tactics are no longer in effect. These were a gambit of another time, and as of late, no one is going to come out and try and ""trick"" you. Furthermore, children do not ever serve alcohol in the restaurant; that one is an outright fabrication.

Ok, so to wrap it up, it's a relatively cheap, small but inviting Chinese restaurant. It's a nice place to eat, and you feel very welcome.

Wasnt this a top 100 chinese restaurant? We went based on that but surely wont go again. They rushed us out and the food was absolutely horrid.. Nothing else to say about this one.

What a mistake

We made the biggest mistake tonight. We were heading into the restaurant next to dragon village when a friendly speaking employee(?) came out and cooerced us into going into Dragon VIliage. They offered us free appetizers (how could we say no??) I have to say in restrospect not only was that cooercement pretty lame, the food wasnt even good--bland, unapetizing, etc. Some of our party even felt sick after eating. My husband and I both regret listening to this aggressive restaurant and will not patronize again.

I agree

I agree with the last reviewer. Save your money and go somewhere else! Actually there is a quaint little restaurant next door that had excellent food.

Worst chinese ever!

I have no idea what that article in the paper was talking about! This was the worst chinese food we have ever had. Its obvious patrons only go here because there is nothing else around. I even saw young children serving alcohol!

Beware!

Nothing To Rave About

Typical strip mall type Asian fare. Recently given huge article in AZ Star but there are much better restaurants out there for the $$$$. Small, crowded, clean , hot food, quick pleasant service. In fact, too quick; it was rather pushy as though trying to get a lot of ""turnover.""

DETAILS
General Info
Dragon Village Restaurant owner Mary Wong asks customers Willi Wolfschmidt, left, and Mario Saenz how they are are finding their lunches. Wong does the out-front socializing while her husband, Chi Ping Chan, presides over the kitchen.The way Mary Wong sees it, owning a restaurant is a lot like being a hospital nurse, which she was in her native China."You take care of people, " the owner of Dragon Village Restaurant said of both occupations.Apparently, Wong and her staff took such good care of a mystery diner or diners a few weeks ago that her Oro Valley business ended up being named one of the top 100 Chinese restaurants in the country by an industry magazine.The Dragon Village won in the Chinese/Asian fusion category and the signature-dish category for its sesame chicken.The Chinese Restaurant News, a California trade publication, created the awards in 2004, said Betty Xie, editor in chief.Wong, 37, said she was flabbergasted when she received a letter with the news. In November, she flew to New York for a gala event where celebrity chef Martin Yan was among those handing out awards."He is my idol, " Wong said of Yan, whom she started watching on television when she moved to Arizona from China in 1993. "He's a good cook; he's funny and delightful."One of the trophies she received at the Nov. 11 event now sits on her restaurant counter. A framed photograph of Wong, Yan and other chefs hangs on a nearby wall.Wong and her husband, Chi Ping Chan, opened the Dragon Village in January 2003 in a Safeway shopping center at North Rancho Vistoso Boulevard and East Tangerine Road.
