Chinese at the Red Dragon in Bullhead City, Arizona

One can't get Chinese food in Laughlin unless you go to Panda Express in the Aquarius Casino.  One night we decided to venture across the bridge through Bullhead City and into Fort Mohave and try the Red Dragon.  This is a small place just off of hwy. 95.   We had heard good things about it so decided to give it a try. 

The place was busy (with many people getting take out) but we were seated right away. Small, simple place with booths and tables in two rooms. Prices seemed very good, especially given even how much a two entree at Panda Express (fast food, "gourmet" Chinese food) costs.

Prior to taking our order the waitress put out the free bowl of crispy wonton type strips with a hot mustard sauce and red sweet/sour sauce. Very good.

We had the crab rangoons. Very good, creamy and you can taste the crab. A good portion of 8 rangoons. We also ordered the Dashew chicken and Generals chicken. We asked if we could have noodles or low mien instead of the rice (white or brown fried) that comes with them and were told no substitutions. Not even for an upcharge, which we would of been ok with. Had to order a separate order of low mien.

The Generals chicken was delicious with a hearty sauce and lots of it. A bit of a bite, which we liked. A generous portion as well.

The Cashew Chicken disappointed, less chicken and cashews and more celery and chopped up water chestnut. Sauce was not even very good.

The low mien also was slightly disappointing, noodles too mushy and not very flavorful.

The staff was excellent even though the service of the food itself was slow. Speed of the meals coming out was slow, in fact our waitress brought out the orders in stages spaced like 5 minutes apart. Guess they were busy, but still shouldn't of happened.

The value was good here, we loved the one dish. With so many items to choose you could probably find other favorites on the menu at good prices. We will most likely come back again but avoid the noodles and the cashew chicken. Or get takeout.

As a bonus one of our fortune cookies had two fortunes, how is that for good luck?!

Better than China Buffet and Panda Express (also in Bullhead City) for quality.
