It's one of the very few restaurants on the planet that you couldn't pay me to eat in again. The food was just awful. Service was subpar. The best part was the bird that was flying around inside the restaurant. Wonder if he ever got out?

Unfortunately, we thought the food was extremely bland. Honestly, it wasn't as good as Chinese food around here, & this isn't exactly a place known for great Chinese food. IMO, PF Chang's is much better. Of all the WS restaurants, this would probably be the last one we return to. I always suggest people try any place once to form their own opinion. I just wouldn't go in expected authentic, flavorful Chinese food.

I had friends and family that dined there recently and said it was pretty good. Feel free to check out my review or should I say, their review (really just like a tour with photos)...

I think the food here is pretty decent, just a bit pricey for what it is. It's better than your typical Chinese take-out and about as nice as my favorite upscale local Chinese restaurant that costs half as much

I like the shrimp and chicken eggrolls, blackberry jasmine green tea, the Gerenal Tso Dumplings, and ginger-caramel ice cream! Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

Well, see, that's why food reviews are so subjective. I've eaten at PF Changs and Nine Dragons, and I prefer Nine Dragons by a very wide margin. I agree that people should try any restaurant they are interested in, and if they try it once and it's not their thing, at least they know. I haven't found the food to be bland, but I do tend to order the spicier entrees.

Actually, I prefer Ming Court, over on International Drive, but Nine Dragons is a very close second.

We still

like the food at Nine Dragons but it was better in it's previous incarnation. The new management has gone for more 'profit' per plate than it used to be. The food is tasty to us and gives our palates something different to try. The other factor is that most of the time you can walk up and get a table with minimal wait.

Enjoy the food at Nine Dragons, especially the Kung Pao Chicken, which is ten times better than any we can get locally and we have Chinese restaurants on every corner. It is pricey though, dinner for four generally runs us over $100

I agree with this.
We are fans of Ming Ct. we eat at Nine Dragons about twice a month.

We ate there in November 2011. My daughters are from China..and so they really wanted to go. I remember reading subpar reviews and was worried. But actually..it was really quite good! Yes..the seating was cramped..that I do remember. But we really enjoyed our meals..my daughter had something where she could mix up her own bowls of noodles, meats, dressings..she was in heaven!
After the meal..I told my husband, father and brother that this place had gotten such bad reviews..they were surprised! ( My dad of course asked why I would take him to a place with bad reviews....lol..took a chance!!)

Our Ratings of Nine Dragons: (rev 4/10/2013)
. . . food price value: B
. . . food quality: C
. . . food quantity per serving: B
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: B-
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: B
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: We eat area Chinese frequently, and were pleased by Nine
Dragons. Although not the best, we thought it was quite good for
Epcot's typically Americanized meals. The Beijing Chicken was surprising
good. I can't count Nine Dragons as fine dining, but certainly well above
average.
