Dragon Village is a decent Chinese dining choice in the Tucson area. Despite the bland Strip mall setting, the food is authentic, as well as reasonably priced. If you find yourself shopping in the Oro Valley area for the day and craving some authentic Chinese food, Dragon Village is your best bet.
Dragon Village offers your basic Chinese menu with all the standard fare like Fried rice, Egg Foo Young, Lo Mein, and beef/chicken/pork/seafood plates. The egg rolls and soup are particularly delicious, especially the Egg Flower and Hot and Sour Soup.
The fried rice is decent, although a tad on the bland sign. As with all Chinese restaurants that do not use MSG (a good thing!), the rice tends to need a bit extra soy sauce to give it that kick. I recommend trying the Chicken Lo Mein here as it was pretty tasty.
I did not see any tea on the menu, which was a bit of a disappointment as a hot pot of tea nicely accompanies the meal.
The best time to plan your visit is during lunch hours (until 3pm daily) where they offer affordable lunch combos which include an entree, egg flower soup, and fried rice all for 10-12 bucks.
Service was pretty basic, with the waitress providing efficient service. We did not experience any problems.
The setting at Dragon Village is quite bland in terms of decor, however, the restaurant appears to be clean and well-maintained which is always a good sign. It's a nice place for a quick lunch or casual dinner, although the vibe is not the best for a date or celebratory occasion.
Overall, Dragon Village is a decent choice if you happen to be visiting the Oro Valley area. It's just a quick drive from Catalina State Park, so if you want to treat yourself to some hefty carbs after hiking, Dragon Village will do just fine. It's neither the best nor the worst Chinese food, but probably one of the best Asian restaurants you will find in the Tucson metro area.
