WE have been going to this restauarnt for over thirty years with the previous owners. Changed hands a couple of years ago and it is srill way up there in suburban restaurants. Service is slow, but its worth the wait.

Don't let the appearance of the small inside restaurant put you off. We had take away. Food was very well priced and of good quality. Service was friendly and quick. Restaurant inside is small and I may not eat in. But take away id highly recommend. We will be back :)

Restaurant nothing flash but the food is fantastic. Best lemon chicken I have ever had anywhere! The banquet for two was a winner, that much food I nearly exploded. I would highly recommend to put this on the list for somewhere to eat if your passing through. I will definitely go out of my way to eat there again! It's... More

New owners, a lot more shy than the previous ones. Decor average, but small and cosy when it filled up. The food is what you come here for. It is sensational. All home made, fresh and decent sized. Very cheap, and good service. Would highly recommend it for those who livenear Moonee Ponds.

This is not your upmarket Chinese restaurant. It's an old fashioned spot- as I remember Chinese restaurants in the 70s- but clean & pleasant. The staff are friendly & the food is excellent. A favorite spot for most locals.

This small Chinese restaurant has been in the same Family for well over thirty years.The food is beautiful, the prices amazing and it has the feel of a family kitchen. You need to book on weekends, and Friday, and, in fact, we book every time we go, because it is often booked out througfh the week as well. Maybe I... More

This eatery has been here forever and has quite a local following. It is small and does take away and very reasonably priced. I have been eating here for more than 20 years on and off and my most recent experience may be my last. The owners and their sons seem like they are tired ( and they maybe after... More

Reasonably priced and a comfortable easy going restaurant. Don't go without trying the lemon chicken. Oh and it's BYO beer which makes it affordable

My family and I have been eating Wend'y food for more than 20 yrs. It's always tasty and served with a smile. Affordable, fresh and flavoursome food. A relaxed and casual atmosphere that feels like a family home. A well kept secret with all the locals.

The Dragon Valley has been there for as long as I can remember. it's one of your salt of the earth local Chinese restaurants with consistently good food and service. The only criticism I would have would be that the food can be a little slow to reach the table at times, other than that all good here. The DV... More
