Golden Dragon is a traditional Chinese Food restaurant with a convenient locale along Kerr Street, which is just a stone’s throw away from College Road, Oleander Drive, and the borders of the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Offering all the Chinese food staples that patrons expect, as well as take-out and delivery services, Golden Dragon is a fast and hands-free choice for an easy dinner at home.

The menu is fairly standard for a Chinese food restaurant, and is nice and long, with a big helping of appetizers, soups, Chow Mein, Lo Mein or Mei Fun, Chop Suey, Egg Foo Young, and fried rice, as well as seafood, beef, pork, chicken, and vegetable-based dishes. Most all of the options are available in pint and quart sizes, and patrons will also find a modest list of about a dozen chef specialties, like Boneless Chicken with Chinese Vegetables, Sesame Chicken or Beef, Orange Chicken or Beef, and Seafood Delight. There are also more than 30 daily lunch specials, which are served with choice of rice, and are exceptionally budget-friendly. Easy to pick up and take home, the Golden Dragon allows college kids and local residents alike to enjoy Chinese food with ease.
