Crown Dragon is a new Chinese restaurant that has opened up in the St George Leagues Club. I don't usually like eating at RSL or similar clubs because filling out those pesky visitors slips is annoying! Hence I was very pleasantly surprised to see that this club (and perhaps others as well) has electronic drivers license readers, which scans your licence and prints out a slip for you! Of course, it can't be guaranteed that it will read it correctly - my slip had about five extra letters and one extra word in my name!
After you receive your slip (there are even staff members there to feed your licence into the machine for you! No need to even lift a finger!), you are allowed entry to walk up to the new Crown Dragon Restaurant
Alas, the combination of a Sunday and Mothers Day no less, meant that there was a big crowd of people waiting for a table. But guess what? No raffle ticket system here! Instead, you are issued with an electronic buzzer like you would receive when ordering pub food. Cool, huh?
I was very impressed with the fancier-than-usual chopsticks....
And also by the unusual shaped tea cups! Unseen at yumcha before! Why, they're almost square!
I was also impressed by the light fixtures inside the restaurant
And the comfortable chairs!
But I guess you don't want to see any more photos of the 'ambience' and want some food photos. Well, I serve to please.
Apologies in advance for the blurry photos....I had to be quick before the chopsticks descended.

Phew. I was pretty full after that. The damage? $61 for four people. Pretty good!
