Best Restaurant in Englewood!.
wow, I normally don't write reviews but I feel compelled because I just discovered Twin Dragon a few months ago and I will never go to another Chinese restaurant if I can help it! I have been to others in town and the flavors and food quality / freshness do not compare. I am addicted to the crab cheese wontons, pot-stickers, fried rice and sesame chicken! I was suprised to see 2 bad reviews here bashing a great family run restaurant......saw that for both it was their only review, ever..... and you can tell they are crazy! everything was terrible? and who complains about steamed rice?
TRUST ME, U CAN THANK ME LATER.....
Yeah about that.....
I was excited to take my boyfriend to Twin Dragon, I had read here it was pretty good. I am an absolute lover for asian food. We were greeted with an amazing enviroment and the service was very attentive. Yet, excellent service can not cloud the awful food. At normal chinese restaurantsyou are givin plates of overflowing goodness. Not here. The portions were small. When you go to an asian restaurant it seems you leaved there stuffed and with mass amounts of left-overs. Which is almost the best part of chinse food, the cold left-overs. Not at Twin Dragon.
First of all,I ordered the SPICY GARLIC CHICKEN. I love spicy food and devour garlic whenever I get a chance. My boyfriend stuck to the usual Mu Shu Chicken. Can not really go wrong with that, right? Well, let me start with the Mu Shu Chicken. The plate came out and looked like mush. Not at all appatizing. It was edible. BUT, the "plume" sauce! Oh my, it tasted like dark chocolate. Interesting. Okay so for the real kicker. My spicy garlic chicken. Neither spicy NOR garlicy. I don't even think there was garlic in it. The sause was very very very sweet, did I mention it was SWEET. No spice, No garlic.
At Twin Dragon they have a beautiful atmosphere, and I will visit there gift shop I am sure. Yet, I grew up loving asian food, and this place makes me wanna stop eating it.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY GOING THERE. YOU WILL REGRET IT!
Chinese dining where the drinks are as important as the food..
Decorated with gold and red trim, Buddha statues in every corner and pretty chandeliers with dangling lanyards, Twin Dragon looks every bit the classic Chinese restaurant. Start off with a mai tai, a Love Potion or a pina colada. If you're feeling extra adventurous, order the powerful Volcano. The lengthy menu features crispy duck, whole fish and everything in between. Highlights include fresh and flavorful moo shu pork and a vibrant orange-peel chicken dish.
Terrible food. My family came here for lunch on a Saturday. There were no other customers. (a sign that the food must be bad) We had a pu-pu platter that tasted just like the name! The spare ribs were dried out and hard as a rock, like they had just been sitting around all day. They were definitely not fresh. When our meals came, we all sampled each others and couldn't believe that not even one meal tasted good. The sesame chicken was vinegary, dry and had gross breading and sauce. The cashew chicken tasted like cheap chicken that was not fresh. They didn't offer fried rice, instead it was soggy cheap white rice. It tasted like left over Minute Rice. We told our server the food was not good like it used to be the last time we had eaten there, years ago. The owner came to our table and argued that the quality of food is good. Even after telling her of all the problems we were having with our food, she still was not accomodating. We expected to at least not be charged for the pu-pu platter (since it was not fresh and tasted old), but we were charged full price for everything. I would never eat at this restaurant again. Take our word for it, do not waste your money. It has really gone down hill.
Truly exceptional chinese!. My date and I visited this place late Thursday night and were seated in the five-table smoking section apart from other diners. We found the tiki drink menu charming and ordered a fruity Zombie complete with skull cup and straw. For an appetizer we chose the fancy Shoo Mai dumplings; each pair tasted and looked different, some fishier than the others. We ordered the chicken in spicy garlic sauce and the Mongolian chef's special which was a stir fry of chicken, beef and shrimp in a pepper sauce. I was pleased to discover that only white meat chicken was used and the beef slices were quite lean and crispy with a charbroiled flavor. The stir-fry was replete with white onions and scallions and the garlic chicken with mushrooms and sizable chunks of garlic. We both agreed that the stir fry was incredibly tasty and would be difficult, if not impossible, to duplicate at home. While he enjoyed the garlic chicken, I'm not particularly fond of thick syrupy chinese sauces (the waitress said this was akin to their sesame dish) and just mostly picked out the strips of chicken. The flavor was spot on, although the spice was very mild, at best. To finish we agreed on green tea ice cream which was, to me, mostly like dyed vanilla and was a dissapointingly small scoop for $2.50. Contrariwise, the well drinks were reasonable at just $3.00 each. The staff here was so alarmingly attentive--three people took turns delivering drinks and clearing the table throughout the experience. We will be returning soon and perhaps often.
Have to try it!. The food is by far the best Chinese food I've ever had...The restaurant is a classic Chinese food restaurant and the perfect place for a good Chinese meal. They offer fantastic service, great appetizers, one of favorites are crab cheese wontons and egg rolls, as well as great Tiki drinks! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a fantastic Chinese meal.
Never had a bad meal here.
I've eaten here many times and have never had a bad meal. The service is ALWAYS great and the food is top notch, some of the best Chinese in Denver. I would recommend this to anyone looking for excellent Chinese in a fun atmosphere.
The owners also opened up a store selling Chinese items next door. The quality wasn't bad and the prices were reasonable too. If you have a Chinese decor, not a bad place to check out.
Denver doesn't have a tiki bar. but Twin Dragon will do! If you're in the mood for some of those wacky cocktails your parents used to order at dinner, this is the place. Mai Tais, Zombies, Flaming volcanoes and the like, all served in fantastic tiki-style glasses (skulls, bamboo shoots, dancing wahines.) You can even purchase your cocktail glass after you've finished your cocktail. Plus, Twin Dragon serves up some fantastic Chinese food. Service is fast and courteous.
