On Tuesday, October 3, 2017, my daughter and I had dinner at the China Dragon Restaurant at 170 Rivendale Court, Suite 7. This is located north of Winchester, in the Stonewall Plaza Shopping Center on Route 522, the North Frederick Pike, near the Route 37 intersection and overpass.

If you are driving out from Winchester, Stonewall Plaza’s entrance is on your right at a traffic light, and is across from the driveway for Westminster-Canterbury. The China Dragon is near Martin’s Food, and all the way back along the right boundary of the parking lot.

Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Sunday, 11:30 AM-10:00 PM. The daily Lunch Buffet hours are 11:30 AM-2:30 PM.

The phone number is (540) 723-0730; both dine-in and takeout service are available. A Web site has the menu at http://www.wincfood.com/menu/china-dragon.pdf.

The entrance has a vestibule to keep out cold air. Just inside are two chairs for those waiting. Partitions provide an aisle down the middle of the room, dividing the dining area into two sections. Seating in each section is by booths along the walls and the partitions.

The floor covering is a woven dark fabric, and the ceiling is white acoustic tile. Lighting is by recessed lamps in the ceiling. The background music is noticeable, but not quite intrusive. I didn’t see a TV screen.

Windows are in the front and on the left side. A few Chinese prints are on the walls, and the ambience is airy and light with a cozy feel. Our server was not Asian, but a young Caucasian blonde wearing her hair in a topknot, and was named Paig. My daughter ordered unsweetened iced tea, while I had hot tea.

The menu features Chinese, Thai, and Fusion Cuisine. Categories include Appetizers, Soup, Poultry, China Dragon Specialties, Seafood, Pork, Vegetables, Thai & Fusion Cuisine; Noodles, Fried Rice, Lo Mein, Chow Mein, Egg Foo Young; and Lunch Special (Monday-Friday 11:00 AM-3:00 PM).

We started with the Fried Dumplings Appetizer, and received six, with a bowl of sauce for dipping. My daughter ordered Coconut Shrimp. It came on a large, round ceramic platter, with chicken in the center covered with crushed cashew nuts. This was surrounded by quite a number of shrimp with their tails, along with broccoli. She thought it was very good.

I had Moo Goo Gai Pan. My ceramic platter was square, and piled with chicken, baby corn, broccoli, snow peas, carrots, bamboo shoots, and small sliced mushrooms. It was a large serving and very good.

Incidentally, the Chinese name is derived from moo goo, button mushrooms; gai, chicken; and pan, slices. I’ve always wondered about the origin, and finally looked it up. Each of our orders came with a large bowl of white rice.

The China Dragon has been operating here for a number of years, and obviously has been doing something right. I rate it as a keeper, and plan to try the Lunch Buffet sometime soon. This was a revisit; my earlier review was on Sunday, February 28, 2016, when I also rated it as a keeper.

On Sunday, February 28, 2016, my daughter and I had lunch at the China Dragon Restaurant at 170 Rivendale Court, Suite 7. This is located near Martin’s Food in the Stonewall Plaza Shopping Center on Route 522 north of Winchester, a little east of the Route 37 intersection.

Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Sunday, 11:30 AM-10:00 PM. The daily Lunch Buffet hours are 11:30 AM-2:30 PM. The phone number is (540) 723-0730; both dine-in and takeout service are available.

The entrance has a vestibule to keep out cold air. Partitions provide an aisle down the middle of the room, dividing the dining area into two sections. Seating on the left side is by booths along the wall and the partition, and on the right by tables in a similar pattern. Windows are in the front and on the left side. A few Chinese prints are on the walls, and the ambience is airy and light with a cozy feel.

We looked at the buffet, which appeared to be appetizing and offered 16 selections. However, we decided to order from the restaurant’s five-page menu. Categories included Appetizers, Soup, Specialties, Seafood, Beef, Poultry, Pork, Vegetables, Thai & Fusion Cuisine, Kid’s Menu, and Noodle Fried Rice.

My daughter ordered Coconut Shrimp, and I had Crispy Honey Shrimp coated with sesame seeds and surrounded by steamed broccoli. She had iced tea, and I was pleased that my hot tea came with a metal teapot and a china teacup. The shrimp for both orders were large and served on warmed ceramic platters; each included a large bowl of white rice. I took half of my generous serving home for later consumption.

The China Dragon has been operating here for a number of years, but somehow I had never been here before. We thought that the food was good and I rate the place as a keeper. The next time I am there for lunch I’ll try the buffet.
