Golden Dragon (San Diego)

I heard that Golden Dragon in Hillcrest is closed ? Is it true ? Not that it is (was) a really good restaurant but it was ok and had the big, big advantage to be open till 3am in the morning.

    I am originally from NY and moved to SD in 1998. Chinese is my favorite food group!! I was so disappointed in the Chinese food here (most of it is just terrible!) that I thought I would have to drive to SF or fly to NY every time I wanted Chinese food.

    Then I found Jimmy Wong’s. It was great. Real authentic Cantonese style Chinese food. And open until 3:00 AM..I live in Ramona so its a drive, but I would go there at least once a week.

    I was so disappointed when it closed. Now I am back to eating crappy Chinese food or driving to SF when I want the good stuff.

      Sad to see this only resturant close and open with a new venue that stinks...

      I have been going there since I was a kid and would see Jimmy come in late at night to check on things.

      The wait staff I saw grow from a busser to a food server, get married and have kids....

        Honkman - Jimmy Wong's is closed to make space for a "Asian-Fusion" Cafe. The sign will stay - it's been declared as historical. Hong Kong Restaurant around the corner is also opened until 3am, I believe - but I really don't care for the food. But my Wife enjoys the Wor Won Ton Mein there.
