I have only been to this bar the once, and unfortunately when I went it was on a Monday during university exam period so it was very very empty. However I have heard that on any other night and especially at weekends it is bustling and a really busy place to go!
It would definitely be more enjoyable with a buzzing atmosphere, so perhaps head down on a weekend day. However, all through the week Sunday to Thursday they do offer 2for1 on their cocktails making them only £2.75 each, which is a definite bargain! There is also a good amount of outdoor seating for those summers evenings...perfect with a cocktail in your hand!
The place itself is actually really big with a pretty funky layout; there are two bars as well as an area at the back which I can only imagine turns into a dance floor on busy nights. There's a good amount of seating too, which is great if you have painful feet from heels! I can imagine it's a pretty cool place for some pre drinks, or even a whole night out!
This is one of the most popular places to eat, drink and be merry in Weston Super Mare, for reasons I can't quite fathom. It's fairly horrific on all fronts.
It's main purpose (I think) is as an all you can eat Chinese buffet and in my more youthful days those four magic words ("all you can eat") used to fill me with great enthusiasm. I was under the illusion that I'd show them for having such a ridiculous policy. I'll take them to the cleaners I used to say. Well now that I'm a little older, I've learnt that they're able to get away with this policy buy serving the most God awful, grease filled, MSG induced garbage. Dragon Kiss employs the same tactic with their buffet. It's not great.
What's also not great about the place is around 8 o'clock at the weekend, Dragon Kiss doubles as a bar/karaoke hang out for Weston oiks and pikeys. If the food wasn't bad enough, listening to some chav belt out The Pussy Cat dolls doesn't make it any better.
- I've never used the bar here, just the Chinese buffet and from the previous reviews, I'm glad I haven't wasted my money. The bar is a bit intimidating if you want to go through to the back to get a Chinese. Full of men in suits and noveau riche, the Dragon Kiss bar is not a particularly appealing place. However, the all-you-can-eat buffet is amazing! Not a huge selection but this is made up for by supreme quality! It is a little bit expensive but only £6 at lunchtime, perfect for filling an empty stomach.
A weird hybrid of bar/restaurant where the two are only separated by a row of high backed benches. A bit of a meat market of a bar on friday/saturday nights. And a bit too noisy of a restaurant due to the bar area. Last time I went, food was a fixed price for eat as much as you want. Although in my opinion it was mediocre chinese food and I didn't want to eat all that much of it. There are better chinese places to eat unless you want some bangin' chunes while you're eating.
Ive never been sure if this place works well. It offers enlighs chinese food in the form of a buffest (queue and collect type of scenario). The resturant is much better during the lunch-time period, but can be very busy. There are alot of birthdays held in here. A large bar is also available, which gets very busy at night with drinkers, which ruins the eating-in picture. I would not recommend dinner in here, lunch only. The food is good, but has had poor renown for bug infestation, and the owners own many simularly poor resturants in weston.
