    Lovely dinner, couldn't have asked for more!

    Greeted on arrival and shown to our table, was by the window which was nice. Fairly quiet for 8pm on a Friday with only 3 other tables but this didn't take away from the atmosphere. Free glass of wine with deal was a bonus - 2 courses for £15.95, fantastic value for money. Food was delicious and we were both stuffed, couldn't squeeze in a dessert. Girls that served us were so attentive, offering more drinks etc and topping up water glasses. Prawn crackers for the table before starter was a good idea as we were starving! Meals were very quick and lovely presented. Overall a great night, will be returning!

Calling Glasgow’s Dragon I a Chinese restaurant doesn’t really do it justice. With dishes which are influenced by Malaysian, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, as well as the vast Chinese repertoire of cooking styles, Dragon I is best described as a contemporary Asian fusion restaurant. With a striking red and black colour scheme, its interior is as bold and memorable as the menu. Dragon I is almost close enough to the Theatre Royal to hear the hush as the curtain goes up and the restaurant does a correspondingly brisk trade in pre and post theatre dinners.

While offering a unique take on Asian food to Glasgow’s diners, Dragon I’s dishes are not all hybrids of different culinary traditions. Sea bass steamed with fresh ginger, spring onion and soya sauce is a Chinese classic while the chilli seafood soup flavoured with lemongrass and shitake mushrooms will be familiar to fans of Thai food. Other elements of Dragon I’s menu are more boundary-blurring. A starter of crispy pancakes rolled with Stornoway black pudding and a Thai chilli sauce crosses several international frontiers while the Hong bun har, or tiger prawns gently simmered in a delicate champagne sauce and topped with fresh strawberries, belong in a classification all of their own. Whether you stick to the more familiar Asian dishes or take a walk on Dragon I’s wild side, there is nothing else like it in Glasgow.
