OK Food, Good Service, Close To My Apartment:)

I've eaten at this place a handful times over the past year, and I'll probably keep going back. The food is not great, but edible, and especially complimentary with drunkenness (probably all the grease). <br> <br>Its a little expensive for what it is-Junky Chinese food. Their fried shrimp appetizer (which is very good, and similar to the puffy, greasy 'east coast' Chinese batter) yields only 5 very small pieces of shrimp and costs about $7 or $8 :( Same with the egg rolls...Only 4 for $6. <br> <br>The fried rice and lo mien are standard prices and standard portions (I think $8 or $9). <br>All the in house meats; beef, shrimp &amp; chicken are a bit on the mystery side, resembling perhaps a distant cousin of its professed meatness, but not tasting quite proper. Rubbery &amp; slimy is the beef, and the shrimps and chicken pieces have weird floury stuff all over it. Strange. <br> <br>The key is to be drunk while eating this food:) <br> <br>The service is great-They're fast, and the Big guy who packs up your to-go leftovers is great! Its amazing to watch him get all the food from your plate in the box without spilling any. <br> <br>The drinks; Scorpion is GREAT. One is enough, and cheap, too, at only $7 or $8 (a scorpion is equal in power to 2 martinis) <br> <br>I tried a cosmopolitan martini here, and hooo-It was bad. <br> It was clear with a slight orange tinge, tasting like tap water w/ a splash of vodka. A martini should burn your throat a bit in bitter taste going down...This tasted only reminiscent of any alcohol. The glass had no condensation, either...I think they poured tap water into the glass with a shot of vodka.???? <br>I don't know, but the scorpions are good. <br> <br>For a place 2 minutes from my house on foot, it's a good choice. OK food, nice people, consistent (even if the food itself is sub par, at least you know what you're getting). Can't go too, too wrong if your expectations are set low before you go.

Good for all the single gals!!!

I'm a small girl that doesnt eat very much but Oh.!!! the food here is Oh so good.!!!\r <br>They seated me close to the bathroom. That was convieniant. \r <br>I had been here once before and remembered liking the shu mai so I ordered an order of that and a glass of wine (don't remember which one but it was white wine and served in a glass).\r <br>The cute waiter brought me dumpling soup (I admit I ordered it) and I had tried it somewhere else that won't be mentioned (rymes with Fok on Wire) and it wasn't like this.!!! The dumpings here fit in the plastic spoon perfectly and the lemon or something in the soup made me feel Chinese.\r <br>The first time at Twin Dragon I had the mushu chicken and it was great but I thought I should try something different so I had the mushu pork. OMG.!!! the pancake things were so good and the sauce too! It didn't even seem like pork to me but it was so excellent that I have ever tried. A+++++\r <br>Desert.!!! I had fried icecream. Fried and icecream, color me happy.\r <br>To wrap things up, cute waitors (well, one anyway) and good ambiance.\r <br>See you there.!!!\r <br>\r <br>\r

Overall
best Chinese food in town

I was amazed to read reviews that criticized the Twin Dragon's service. I've been eating there for more than 20 years and the staff has never been anything but totally gracious. When I go there with my husband we know we'll get not only the best Chinese food in town, quiet art on the walls, and no annoying music--- but also waiters who know our tastes. About ten years ago the manager told my husband that before getting married I had come there alone, and always seemed sad...and that marriage had made me happy. It's true, and I will always cherish that memory.

Overall
The good food helped me overlook the awful service till today

I've always enjoyed the food at this restaurant and have always been willing to overlook the bad attitudes of the wait staff. Over time it was progressivly gotten worse and today I just couldnt take it anymore. I took a friend there who had never been. The waiter walks up and without greeting asks what we want. We ordered some spring rolls and he walks out like he was angry that we werent ready to order our entrees after only being there for 2 minutes. He comes back and without saying anything, throws (no joke) 2 saucers down on the table. A few minutes later he brings the spring rolls out and sits then right on top of my friends menu. We both over looked all of that. After waiting 15 minutes he never came back to take our order. When he was walking past me I said &quot;&quot;excuse me&quot;&quot; and he deliberatly ignored me and continued walking. At that point I was getting angry but we decided to give him a few more minutes. He never came back so we got up and I went to the front where I told the woman at the cash register our experience as well as the manager. To top it all of, as I'm standing there speaking to the manager, the waiter comes up and leans in between us to grab something as if he knows very well I'm speaking about him but he could care less... The majority of the waitstaff give attitude but this as been the worst. He's old (55ish) about 5'10, lanky, and has puffed up hair on top. Definatly not going back after this event, unless I get a sincere apology

Not a good experience for delivery

We ordered delivery from Twin Dragon last nite. I would say it was not to my liking at all. The egg foo young was not good at all. The lo mein tastless and the white meat chicken seems odd and rubbery. We also had the chicken fried rice which was also bland. I guess I will stick with Wok on Fire on La Cienga for delivery.

Overall
Disappointing Cantonese

Based on reviews on citysearch, was anxious to try this restaurant. Went last night for an early dinner and must say it was very disappointing. Though the place was not crowded at all due to the early hour, we were seated in an area with two families. Each of them had a young child who screamed throughout our meal. Asked if the sweet and sour chicken was white meat, and they said they could make it with white meat chicken. It was crunchy! Pork with crispy noodles was dry and not very flavorful. Egg foo young was unspectacular. Dinner for three with 2 glasses of wine and a beer (with tip) was $90.00. Will now stick with my favorite take-out place on the west side: Canton Kitchen on Venice and Centinela. 100% better food.

Fills a good, greasy Chinese food fix

Delicious Chinese food that you couldn't eat everyday. Stick with the standards and you'll be golden - lo mein, aromatic shrimp, etc. Reminds me of an old school Long Island Chinese restaurant complete with wacky drinks such as a Navy Grog and a Blue Hawaii. The ambience leaves a lot to be desired, but the wait staff is prompt. Enjoy and indulge.

Overall
Good solid neighborhood Chinese fare

(I haven't dined in yet, so this is based on numerous takeout/delivery experiences.) The staff is super sweet and helpful, and while the menu has a lot of old standards, everything seems fresh and made with love and care. (The portions and prices remind me of Chicago's Chinatown in the 90's!) I liked the chicken and creamy corn soup, which had what seemed like a whole chicken breast's worth of meat, a nice contrast in textures and a base that was neither gooey nor too sweet. This with a side of pickled cabbage (yes, they have kimchi!) has gotten me through the flu more than once. I also enjoyed the aromatic scallop, garlic chicken, shredded pork and twice cooked pork. The advice to ask your server for recommendations is probably sound. Otherwise I rate this good to very good -- plus it's right in my backyard!
