For almost 20 years the Golden Dragon, in Ipswich’s Cardinal Park, was known around town for its legendary Chinese buffet.

And news of its closure prompted an outpouring of support - with many former patrons taking to social media.

“Loved this place, great to eat at before cinema treat. Sad to see it go”, said Joanne Mann.

Paul Sutton added: “Sad to see it close. Maybe the opening of all the new restaurants around town is partly at fault too.”

However, with the Chinese restaurant now gone a prime area of town centre real estate is up for grabs.

It is a time of change at Cardinal Park with work under way for The Gym Group to move into the former sites of Flux Freestyle and Chimichanga.
