We ordered Tomato Beef, spring rolls and hot and sour soup, with tea. The food and recipes were fine, but they used rancid beef. Both me and my fiancee barfed on the sidewalk outside. We could taste the rotten meat. Most others in the restaurant also had frowns on their faces so I assume they were serving the whole restaurant rotten meat. The recipe was good though. I would have sent it back but we were late for a movie.

The won-tons are delicious! This is our "Go To" Chinese restaurant. It's one of the best in the neighborhood.

Best homemade noodles on the planet... We call them crack-noodles because of the need that you must have more.

I, in the past, was a huge fan of Snappy Dragon. I very much enjoyed the vegetable chow mein with the homemade noodles. On a Saturday, not too long ago, I placed an order to go for the chow mein. I am a vegetarian, and was acutally using a coupon from Vegetarian's of Washington for this meal. The customer service was great, and the wait time wasn't too bad. The bad thing was, opening my lunch to see meat in my vegetarian meal. I was so very disappointed, to a point that I will not return. :(

The owners are fantastic. This is located in the heart of Maple leaf super friendly and speedy service. Our favorites are Hom Bow and the Dumplings. We can never stray from our normal dish sesame chicken. Portions are big family style. Our family of 4 can only eat 2 dishes of the menu.

The Dragon was toothless but drooled on everything! I am amazed that this restaurant has received accolades and awards! What I saw was large, homestyle plates of food; most people eating noodle dishes, apparently because they are homemade. If the fried vegetable potstickers were an indication of the noodles then you can keep them, too. The potsticker wrapper was very thick, tough and chewy. I could barely cut them with my fork and I am no wimp. The filling was tasty, but just chopped spinach out of a bag as its base. Our very plain "chicken with garlic and vegetables in Szechwan sauce was very salty and smothered in sauce and no garlic that we could find or taste. Many pieces of bell pepper (in both our dishes), were too big to be bite-sized. The "sliced Cod" with black bean sauce was not with black bean sauce, but Szechwan, and I did not realize their mistake till writing this... The cod was battered and fried. The menu does not state this! The batter, like the potstickers, was overdone and tough. The fish itself was good. The only thing positive I can say about this meal is that the portions are large and the ingredients were fresh and of good quality. It is popular with families. There were no Asians dining here that I saw... The first glass of my wife's red wine was absolute plonk! We sent it back and the replacement glass was OK. They opened a new bottle or box for us, it seems. This is not real Chinese food as I know it. It is the over sweet, over salty, over sauced, heavy-handed Americanized version. Service was acceptable. Our waitress wore a Snappy Dragon T-shirt with holes in it. Also, the restaurant is very noisy. The walls are hard and basically bare. I'm assuming this was once a home. If you are into take-out, large portions, think Sweet and Sour Pork is the typical Chinese dish and the cat's meow and have never eaten where Asians eat, then this place is for you.
