Simply the food at my local Chinese American restaurant is better than Blue Dragon with much better value. Many of the dishes are fried/cooked and then topped with a salty sauce. When a frozen cookie/ice cream combo is the best part of dinner, it is a sad night out after paying more than $170. We wish we would have spent that money many more times at a place with greater value.
We went for Dine Out week and it was above and beyond what we expected! I’d heard great things about Blue Dragon, but the service was really fantastic, the food (both quantity and quality) was tremendous. Will definitely be going back!!
Fun was delicious! love the atmosphere
Delicious drinks, good food. Nice atmosphere for a group.
BD don't sell out, one of the few repeatable great choices to eat in the Fort point Channel area
Food was awesome and plentiful! Service was fantastic and I got rock star parking! Definitely a great choice for restaurant week!!
Best Dine Out menu and options compared to the whole list.
Went here on a Wed evening for Boston Restaurant Week. Service was extremely slow because there was only 1 server for about 8 tables. If you're going to participate in restaurant week you should probably staff more servers, she was great though! I wish I could remember her name. The food was very salty and I felt sick the entire next day. Also the music did not match the vibe. It has an asian modern bar theme but hip hop rap music. Not great for a Wed evening crowd of business professionals. Also the bathroom has a window in it that looks directly into the kitchen, why?!
The place was very noisy and the seating exceptionally uncomfortable. We were put into a high-top table without discussion. The drinks were good as was the food. The dandan noodles were outstanding, really fantastic, as were the brussels sprouts. The pickled vegetables were rubbery but the deviled eggs were nice. The fried chicken was desiccated. The dessert was chocolate chip cookie in a pan and, though fine, don't kid yourself -- in a blind taste test, you'd favor the version at Applebee's.
So, if you're imagining that Blue Dragon is just Blue Ginger in Boston, erase this from your mind. Blue Ginger was remarkable from beginning to end, Blue Dragon is meh.
Good for a few apps and a drink. Salty food.
We had a wonderful experience at Blue Dragon and were especially surprised when Ming Tsai himself brought the food to our table. He was very down to earth and personable. The food was exceptional!!! So happy to see a couple Filipino dishes on the menu (sisig and lumpia was one of the night’s specials). Would highly recommended this restaurant!!!
Second time there and we love it! Great food and environment.
Great service and experience. Would definitely come back. Great value and menu.
Food was different in terms of selections and flavors but we enjoyed it! Would probably go back again
It was fantastic! Food was even better than I remember it and the service was great.
You don't want to miss this place when visiting Boston.
We tried two of the signature cocktails and both were fabulous. All the snacks and small plates were ordered were delicious - such a wonderful combination of flavors in each dish.
Maybe time to update some of the dining tables and chairs...Other than this, always a treat to be eating at Chef Ming’s gastro pub. Delicious fusion food experience- very nice service- (winds list by the glass...looking for more options ;)- overall, highly recommended!
Surprisingly casual compared to the Blue Ginger in Wellesley. Not what I expected, but good.
Ming does a great job.
Just the coolest spot in Boston. Awesome staff, bar staff are great too. Great vibe, awesome food and great value.
The Entire staff from the hostess to the waitress and the manager were fantastic
My wife is a huge fan of Ming Tsai and after our valentines dinner experience at this restaurant I am too! We had the valentines dinner special and we were not disappointed! Great/unique food with great service and atmosphere...don’t miss this experience
Went for the Valentines Day menu, which was SUCH A GREAT DEAL!!! James greeted & seated us and was so kind. Joe provided fantastic service. Thank you to everyone at BD for a fantastic & delicious evening.
Always a delish meal and great night out. Drinks were unique, smooth and fun, food was creative and yummy and service was impeccable.
This place does not look like much on the exterior, but it is totally opposite of that inside - very nice ambience, overflowing with lively & lovely crowd on a regular Thursday lunch time, not even Friday! All dishes looked really nice, and my Blue Dragon burger with teriyaki onions was nothing short of amazing! Definitely would wanna go back!
Service and ambiance was excellent! Food was good but a few dishes were very salty and we were unable to finish them because of that (deviled eggs, Brussels sprouts). I will go back because it was a fun experience but I will l try other items on the menu.
I was so impressed by my entire experience here! Everything from the flavor of the food, reasonable prices, strong delicious cocktails, pleasant servers, and ambiance were right on point. My only criticism is that I ordered and ate too much! I’m a fan of modern Asian fusion cuisine AND tapas so this was a perfect spot. They definitely didn’t cheap you out about the drinks (a little too strong for me) but you really get your money’s worth!
I’m very sad to be saying this because Blue Dragon has been a favorite go to for us for at least a year, but this last visit was mediocre. Our server was totally absent even though the restaurant was not full (we had an 8.45 reservation on a Thursday. We had to track down another staff member who was busy cleaning tables to be served. The chicken satay special appetizer was undercooked and underwhelming and the famous Dan Dan Noodles that we ALWAYS order did not deliver. We hope this was just a fluke, because we love Blue Dragon and it’s usually on point!
Consistently wonderful every time we eat here. We've come for date nights, bachelorette parties, friend dates, and visiting friends here. Perfect for any occasion! Some favorites are any of their potstickers, the huge thai bbq short rib, and the wok stirred chow fun. You cannot go wrong with anything you get here. Also, their cocktails are amazing. I love the Thai Basil Smash! Every dish is flavorful, fun, and delicious.
Blue Dragon is a great example of Chinese fusion done right!! The Duck fried rice with mangos was an unexpected delight, plenty of duck meat and the rice was cooked just right with the mix of mangos as a wonderful fusion combination.
Cocktails were good and to finished the meal we had the cookie in the skillet with ice cream which was super delicious.
The restaurant itself was a beehive of activity and considering the location on Melcher Street a pleasant surprise.
Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
An Asian fusion staple. We come here for a change of scene/ celebrate without breaking the bank. Everyone is always super nice when we’re there, they’re happy to accommodate to dietary changes and special events. The server is always polite and patient to explain the food and make solid recommendations.
I've never had a bad meal at Blue Dragon, it's one of my favorite restaurants in Boston! I also went with friends who are vegan and have Gluten allergies and there were plenty of items on the menu to accommodate that. The cookie skillet is also a must anytime you go!
I love Ming Tsai and have wanted to dine here since it’s inception. Sadly it did not live up to exceptions especially having been a patron of Blue Ginger. I brought two co-workers who agreed that they would not return. We had dumplings, spring rolls, house ramen, a bowl, and chicken stir fry. It saddens me to write this review.
Food was too salty. I found the food too salty. If there was one thing I'd fix, it'd be too much salt in the food.
I love the atmosphere at the blue dragon. The Thai BBQ short rib is amazing. That is my favorite item on the menu. But everything is delicious. We have a dairy allergy in our family and the waitresses are very knowledgeable about the menu and very aware and helpful. I will definitely be returning to The Blu Dragon.
Excellent food and excellent service!
Great restaurant - great food. They accommodated a change from 8 to 9 people last minute. Very loud - difficult to talk to more than one third of the table
Great service staff, we sat at the bar. One of our dishes needed to go back and they took it back and made it right. As well, they took it off our bill and provided us a round of drinks for the inconvenience. Mark of a great restaurant is how to resolve issues in a positive manner.
Food was actually disappointing- ordered several things to share - some things were ok while others were not. Looked forward to trying this place but sadly nothing would really entice me to return.
