There are plenty of average Chinese places in town. Little Dragons flies above the peasants and offers decent Chinese food at an affordable price. The restaurant remodeled in 2005. Most people order carry out. It took me many visits to discover the secret Chinese menu – which is generally not made available to western looking types like myself except on request. One day I noticed the other diners had food very different than what I had seen before. Also, I noticed that 95% of the customers dining in are Asian. I then discovered the secret Chinese menu (with English translations – written on the side) and started to unlock the mysteries of it. Some of the offerings scare me – most leave me very excited. After crossing this line, I found out about the Dim Sum on Sundays. Basically, Dim Sum could quickly be described as Chinese tapas or appetizers. Dim Sum is quite the experience in “real chinese” restaurants expecially those on the West Coast. The offering and presentation are scaled down here in the heart of the Midwest but the items available on both the English and Chinese menus were good and not to be found elsewhere in Columbus. I have never had a bad meal at Little Dragons and I consistently enjoy the pot stickers and Crab Rangooon.
