About Dragon I

Right in the heart of Glasgow, Dragon I brings a unique splash of contemporary culinary coolness to the city centre. Dragon I is a Chinese restaurant by name, but it is a long way from the old-timey Chinese takeaways that may be evoked by that label. Instead, this chic, modern restaurant on Hope Street refines traditional Chinese dishes and then gives them characteristic kicks, always using great quality, fresh, local produce to give their food a real Scottish twist – try their West Coast mussels in black bean sauce or their mouthwatering crispy pancakes rolled around Stornoway black pudding and you’ll see what we mean. It’s wise to book, though, because you’re unlikely to be the only one curious to try Glasgow’s coolest contemporary Chinese joint!

Very friendly staff. An extensive set menu. Excellent food. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the food and although the restaurant was full we did not feel rushed in any way.

Delicious food, great service, gorgeous restaurant, what more could one ask for? Also great value for money. The lunch menu had lots of dishes to choose from and the portions were more than adequate. I'll be back sooner rather than later.

Great service and food in a flash from a proper choice on the pre-theatre menu - it's ideally placed for enjoying before visiting the theatre royal.
