The beef satay was incredibly juicy and flavorful. Chicken Wings were not cooked to an optimal level. Pot stickers were amazing
Great location and fun vibe. Lots of small plates to choose and share. Very tasty and good with cocktails. Service was friendly .
AMAZING! The food was amazing and so easy to share among a large group! It was perfect for girls night out!
I made reservations two weeks prior to my boyfriends birthday since he told me he'd always wanted to go. We arrived a little early and were seated right away. Unfortunately the tables were so close together, it was uncomfortable. I didn't make a big deal of it because it seemed pretty busy but it was difficult not to join in our neighbors convo, my boyfriend actually caught a piece of silverware that fell off a neighbors table with very little effort. The food was ok, a little acidic and oily but we ate everything. I might go back for drinks but I wouldn't go out of my way.
I love chef ming tsai from his pbs show “simply ming” (i spent a year in china in 2014) and had been really looking forward to taking my daughter to blue dragon on her 28th birthday. a letdown. Basically just a bar. We were seated at a small wooden table by the door. Food was very salty. And pricy. Wah.
Great dinner experience with the family. We had Joe S as our server and he gave us some great recommendations.
Blue Dragon goes above and beyond to ensure individuals with allergies have a safe and fun dining experience. The food is delicious! Highly recommend Blue Dragon to all!!
The entire staff at the Blue Dragon was extremely professional and helpful. I have a lot of food sensitivities, and had complete confidence in the kitchen to accommodate my diet. They made something off-menu for me that was delicious. The only thing that would keep me from becoming a regular is the lack of variety of vegetarian items on the menu.
Loved it! Wonderful food, and excellent service. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough!
We are fans of Ming Tsai and wanted very much to like this restaurant. We ordered the buttermilk tempura whole chicken. Because the crust was a deep brown, my husband thought it might have been burnt so we asked our waiter about it and he said he would take it back and see what the chef said. When Ming Tsai himself came to the table, we were shocked and pleasantly surprised, but he told us he had been making it this way ever since the restaurant opened and and the gluten free batter was supposed to be DBD - dark, brown and delicious, the same as the panko crust fish. When I think of tempura I think of a light and airy batter, not a hard, tasteless crusty layer. The crust was inedible and the chicken was dry. I felt that Ming was trying to embarrass us or chastise us by coming to the table, and that this was unnecessary. He didn't even consider the possibility that we could be right--that the chicken was overcooked. Our waitress was very personable and took the dish off our tab, which was extremely nice but overall we were disappointed by our experience and with our encounter with the celebrity chef.
All of the dishes were unique and delicious. Deviled
Eggs with touch of spice, wontons and potstickers were perfect. My husband had fish& chips so tender and crunchy. I had the most delicious St. Louis ribs. I’ve had ribs all over including the South, and these were the best! Terrific soy/ginger glaze which we had with a Yummie Dan Dan noodle and fresh veggie dish. Warm freshly baked skillet, choc chip cookie with ice cream and birthday candle topped of a perfect meal. Thank You All at Blue Dragon.
Poppin' for a Monday night! Ordered a bunch of plates to split, and everything was delicious.
First time we’ve been to Blue Dragon not for a beer dinner, couldn’t be happier with everything. Thanks so much!
Blue Dragon is always fun and the food never disappoints. Ate Thursday business lunch at Blue Dragon and was impressed with the friendly and knowledgeable service. Dim Sum is amazing, I had the Chow Fun vegetables for the first time, was very satisfied with the choice. Will be returning soon...
I was disappointed with the food. Presentation and taste were way below my expectations. I've had better at many mom & pop small cafes. Very disappointed, given Ming Tsai's reputation. Maybe it was an off night but I would not go back anytime soon.
Just the right spot for good food in a vibrant but cozy space. We all had a very good time.
The food is delicious, the ambience is comfortable, and Ming is always gracious.
Another great experience...we continue to be wowed by the cuisine and the attention to detail for those with food allergies. We cant say enough..a special call put to our server Sarah and the newest menu item the short ribs!
outstanding food...great service...actually got to see Ming Tsai ... rounding out a great evening
We went back twice on the same trip!
The waiter and bartenders were great. One of the staffers delivering food spilled grease from a plate down the back of someone in my group and didn’t apologize. The restaurant gave us a free order of potstickers but that seemed weak after our night was ruined.
Quality and experience was a downgrade from previous visits. We had the chow-fun noodles which was tasty but on the oily side. The two potstickers (braised beef, lamb) were somewhat indistinguishable and way too salty. And the wings just felt “off”. Perhaps the chicken was frozen or the oil used was old..
The service was not warm or friendly. We had a reservation for 3; and they put us at a table for 2 and told us to pull an additional chair from the corner for the 3rd person. As soon as the first dish came, we knew the table wasn’t gonna work for the 4 dishes we ordered (you’d think they would know that!). So I joined my table with the empty one right next to us. Despite over 6 other tables being free at the time, the hostess made it a point to tell us that the 2nd table would be needed at 6;30 coz they had a reservation. It was 5:45 at that point. Such an odd and unfriendly thing to do. Didn’t we have a reservation at 5:30 for 3? Why couldn’t she do her job well and manage reservations instead of asking 3 patrons to sit at a table meant for 2? We weren’t white...so maybe she thought it would be okay to treat us like that? Who knows...I could keep speculating but not worth my brain power. I’ve travelled enough to recognize when people do things coz they think they can get away with it. I was with my young son and didn’t want to make a scene, else would have asked politely about her rationale.
Conclusion: I will not be in a hurry to go back. There are other plenty of other establishments where they treat their food and patrons with care.
I usually enjoy Blue Dragon and was looking forward to my visit after a long hiatus. This time my Dan Dan noodles weren't so great - missing most of the green tangy bits (peppers?) and there were some large balls of spice that I bit into and it was a very unpleasant experience.
Teriyaki Bison Burgers were amazing!!!!!!
My guest had fish & chips. Loved them! I had salmon noodles perfectly cooked and all ingredients in the salad bowl were a great compliment. Loved the touch of wasabi. Excellent dining experience!!
Really great Asian food, and safe for the food allergy set. I’m Chinese-American, and I have food allergies, and almost never eat Asian food. Chinatown is a gamble with that; I don’t advise it. (Shout out to Billy Tse; his place also allergy safe.) The quality here is really good; the shumai are perfect, and the chow fun is everything it should be: comforting, fresh, and they nailed the noodle texture. Service at the bar was fantastic: friendly, warm, attentive.
Great food and by Boston standards reasonably priced.
I have to say I was disappointed. Food was so-so ... kind of bland and not that tasty. Seemed like the fryers needed their oil replaced. Service was slowish. I wish it was better b/c I LOVED Blue Ginger.
Had a fabulous dinner with exceptional service, the small plates were fun and very well done.
We are fans of Ming Tsai from Blue Ginger and have been to Blue Dragon once before. We were very disappointed in the majority of the dishes (the brussel sprouts were an exception and delicious). The sauces seemed to have a very strong (unpleasant) lemon/vinegar/sour taste...the tuna tartare was flavorless and could have benefited from a slice or 2 of jalapeño, sesame seeds/drizzle, soy sauce/ginger. We took my niece who was from Pittsburgh and wanted to share some good food with her. We were bummed.
Horrible service and food was horrendous. Everything tasted sour!
Food was good but we expected more from a Ming restaurant.
The service at Blue Dragon was wonderful. They were very accommodating given my food allergies. The waiter had a menu written up for me before I got there with all my options. Food was great!
Shame on you Ming Tsai. Been wanting to go here for year. The food tasted like something that came from Panda Expess. Cocktails were great. Service was great. Your food is simply not good.
They have one dessert (the cookie skillet), it is so worth it to save room just for that.
Poor mgmt. Octopus should have been named shaved zucchini and 4 slivers of octopus. When we voiced our concern to the manager, she said we hear that from alot of people. If that's the case why don't they change it. She keep saying yes, it's a little light on octopus, multiple times to us. Point of fact, it really have 4 or 5 wafer thin slices of Octo. Best thing on the menu was the crab and pork scotch egg and the short rib.
Some of the dishes were really good (duck, lamb lollipops). Some were just OK (Garlic-Chile Braised Octopus). Diverse beers (bottle/can).
Poke bowl bland and dumplings meh. Dull food. Surprised
I would not recommend the Blue Dragon Restaurant because the food is AWFUL!! The lamb chops weren’t made fresh the food was old and very greasy!! I will never return! I can’t believe that Ming Tsai ownes this establishment!!!!
