Dragonfly got excellent food to suit all needs. Friendly service that is efficient with minimal fuss. Food is tasty and great value. Drinks list is not bad either and the duck curry is a must.

Dragonfly offers delicious Asian fusion cuisine. The food is excellent, however it is expensive. Portions are plentiful and the high cost reflects the sumptious atmosphere and the continuous friendly attention by staff to customers which means excellent service. This is a high end, very professional...More
