This is the only place I have ever seen Nine Dragons rated as a good restaurant (and I’ve read countless blogs on Disney dining). I was rather surprised when I saw that. I can’t review it because we’ve never gone to it based on bad review after bad review I’ve seen for it. So, to be fair, I can’t say if it is or isn’t any good. Can only say I’m really surprised to see it given a good rating.
