Review

Setting

Dragon Inn impresses the minute diners walk into the restaurant. The décor and ambience sets the scene for the meal with its old-school dark wood furniture and ruby accents, which come in the form of lanterns, cushions and fancy décor pieces that are placed around the seating area. 

Food

The kitchen at Dragon Inn manages to miraculously whip up many dishes at the restaurant, which are described in two menus. We started with the signature dish, xiao long bao and weren’t let down. The pork and soup base were perfectly seasoned and served hot in a traditional dim sum steamer basket. Next, we decided to go with the lamb slices with spring onions. Again, the lamb was cooked perfectly and not overpowered by the spring onions, which actually added a beautiful crunch to the dish. We decided to add a side of string beans with meat, which was a great accompaniment to the mains. To finish up, we went with the fried rice with preserved seafood. This dish was easily one of the highlights of the evening and took the traditional fried rice to another level with finely chopped vegetables, savoury preserved seafood, and egg. 

Wine

The Regal Riverside Hotel bottles their own wine which they then serve as a house wine. However, aside from this wine, the comprehensive wine menu works for all wine connoisseurs with red and white wines from all regions across France, South America and Spain. However, if you like to keep it traditional, we’d go with the premium house longjing tea, which accompanies all dishes perfectly. 

Service

We were easily impressed by the service at Dragon Inn. The staff are approachable and keen to give input if asked.

Price

With a single glass of wine, a meal at Dragon Inn will cost you around HK$500, which actually makes it a cost effective and delicious meal.
