Nine Dragons Chinese Resturant at Epcot
Here is my review of the Nine Dragons Chinese restaurant at Epcot.
We decided that before the fantastic firework display to book the restaurant. So at around 2pm we booked our table for later at 7:30pm.
This was a good plan; once we arrived at Nine Dragons it was packed! As our meal was for 7:30 we had allowed plenty of time we thought before the fireworks.
It’s a nice looking restaurant and all done in a typical Chinese fashion, plenty of seating and plenty of people seated! .
We needn’t of worried though as the service was ultra efficient. So fast it was almost too fast. Food turned up within minutes, plates were cleared within seconds!
I also liked the fact that the restaurant offered traditional knives and forks or chop sticks – as we were hungry we used knives and forks; didn’t fancy spending 10 minutes chasing a grain of rice round me bowl ?
Once the wine had been served (a Chardonnay) our main courses turned up; mine a chicken suezahen (spelt? ? ) boa and Sue’s sticky chicken in brown sauce.
We also asked to order a Sprite (Sue likes to mix it with the wine; this means more wine for me! ) – but they didn’t have any. Bit bizarre really for a major restaurant not to have a fundamental such as lemonade – but not too worry.
Both dishes were excellent! I guess I was foolish as my dish was hot, VERY hot! (Boa should have been a clue! ). I ate it anyway and suffered the pain, gulping my wine and the table water – it was a killer, but utterly delicious! Sue’s sticky chicken in brown sauce was erm, chicken in brown sauce and sticky ? , couldn’t work out what the sauce was but very tasty and quite rich – my dish was best though (of course! ).
The rice also was cooked just right, not soggy and stodgy like when I do it at home.
Our plates as mentioned were cleared at break neck speed – a bit too quick as it gives the impression they want you out for the next guest (which of course they do).
We had plain white coffee to finish off which was fine, not too strong – don’t want to be awake all night!
Total bill including wine was around US$70, we thought represented excellent value for such a good Chinese meal and we would definitely visit again.
Then of course it’s straight outside to get a good position for the fireworks.
