The Golden Dragon is a Chinese restaurant in Islington. It is regarded as the best Chinese restaurant in the area where Matt Wood lives. Because his family frequents the restaurant for a number of family celebrations, Matt has learned its menu by heart and does not need to read it, which is a comfort to Matt as he has severe dyslexia. For his seventeenth birthday, Matt goes to the restaurant with his family and Ayesha to celebrate. Much to Matt's displeasure, Jago Jones is also at the restaurant with his current girlfriend, Lucy, and his other friends on the same night.
