Always great service and great food. If you are after an enjoyable evening that doesnt break the bank I highly recommend Dragon Cove. Menu is extensive and staff are attentive. Spoilt for choice at this lovely restaurant.

We booked for Fathers Day. Restaurant a bit too busy. We have to wait to be seated and asking again before we were assigned a table. We waited again on the table and had to asked to be assigned a waitress to take up our order. We were seated across the kitchen entrance and we could not relaxed watching the rush in and out the kitchen. We ordered banquet, the 5 main came slowly and the Peking duck pancake came short of 1. When we asked the missing one, we did not realised that we got charge extra. The 7 mains came reasonably fast and the portion and taste are good.
We had some left over to take home. Perhaps we will be back again but definitely not during special occasions such as Fathers Day. It was a bit too hectic for us.

The food is always incredible as ALWAYS.
It was fully booked out for Father’s Day and I really felt for the staff.
They didn’t know what to do as the manager was all over them and every time they would go to a table they would be called by him. They seemed like nervous wrecks, usually they are excellent but seriously it was the managers doing not the staff

The food was beautifully fresh, good sizes, service was lovely. Staff were very friendly. Corkage was $5 pp which I thought was a bit steep but cheaper than buying a bottle of wine.

The food was awesome but the service was very slow. There seemed to be plenty of staff wandering around, but no-one came to our table without us calling them over and it was hard to get their attention.

We arrived with our special bottle of wine as this restaurant is BYO. When we arrived there was a sign on the door saying NO BYO Saturday and Sunday and at least 3 waiters came to tell us the same thing.
We ordered a bottle of wine from the menu and left ours sitting at the end of our table.
They should advertise that it’s only BYO M-F
False advertising

We really enjoyed our meal there, our waiter was awesome! Food and ambience very good! We were getting very tired of our regular Thai and Chinese restaurants which now caters more to their takeaway customers.

Puppy friendly. Lovely outdoor views of Marina, Service was excellent, advised which dishes would come together and checked if we were ready for our next courses.
Duck San Choy bow, additional fresh chili sauces, crispy Peking beef & Singapore noodles were excellent.
Wonton soup lacked a good base - no master stock flavor ..(lacking even box stock flavor) big wontons and roast pork but wouldn’t order again

Lots of good value options - only expensive here if you choose things double+ the price of other menu options.
