About Us

Three Generations Serving Delectable Chinese Dishes

Steve and Joyce Ye and Henry and Annie Lau have owned and operated Dragon East Restaurant since 2005 when they purchased the closing Fortune Village Restaurant. It had been a popular Chinese restaurant and a Branford fixture for decades. The couples now carry on the tradition, serving the Connecticut shoreline with authentic Chinese specialties and traditional Asian dishes, using recipes handed down from generation to generation of the Ye and Lau families.
