Bon appétit!
When life is busy and you don’t have time to cook, the critic crew tends to lean toward a Chinese dinner.
For us, we chose a place that was on our way home and we could place the order while we were sitting in our little critic’s dance class. That place was Dragon Garden.
Located in the 500 block of Cumberland Street in downtown Lebanon, Dragon Garden offers a standard menu along with some unique options. They do have an online ordering platform for easy ordering.

Our dinner tonight consisted of the Romeo & Juliet ($13.75) with a pork fried rice add on ($2.55), shrimp lo mein ($10), and fried cheese wonton ($6.50).
The Romeo & Juliet is General Tso chicken and jumbo shrimp in chili sauce in a combined dish. Upon first bite, I was not a fan. But after really digging in, I began to love the blended flavor. Our chicken chunks weren’t the best pieces, but the jumbo shrimp were large and cooked perfectly.
The shrimp lo mein has become a standard staple in the critic house. This dish came with plenty of shrimp but could have used a little more vinegar in the sauce. A plentiful portion was given.
Our take: This downtown location offers an ordinary Chinese food menu while adding a few different options that others don’t. Food quality is standard. The flavor combination of General Tso and chili sauce in our dish ended up creating a nice flavor. They have an easy online ordering platform.
We give this place .
