The flashiest show in this part of town continues its flamboyant run. Dragon Castle, hunkered down on the ground floor of a modern building in Elephant & Castle’s unjolly surroundings, exudes a certain amount of large-scale glamour. It also serves correctly prepared Cantonese food rarely seen in south-east London. Amid all the decorative drama, the best choice on the menu is undoubtedly the house-made dim sum (served until 4.30pm daily), & given the price, plenty of it. Readers praise the delicate grilled chive dumplings & fluffy char siu buns. At dinnertime, chilli crab & twice-cooked pork both have fans, & lobster or turbot would make the centrepiece of a banquet; there’s also a commendably wide choice of vegetables. Some believe Dragon Castle’s best days are in the past, & service can be variable, but compared to the value & quality of Chinatown’s traditional options, this is still a good bet.
