There is nothing fancy to the menu but the food is great. You can either eat in or takeaway and the waiting time is not very long at all. The restaurant is located across the road from the lake and there is plenty of parking. You may want to book a table because is always seemed busy.

I have been a customer for over 10 years and that says it all. I love the staff and the food and now that we've moved away I always have my favourite chinese meal when visiting Merimbula.

Wanted a delicious treat for dinner, and I could not have chosen better. Lemon chicken & small rice, such generous portions, the chicken was magnificent tender & crispy and rice super tasty. Fabulous staff, friendly & welcoming. Highly recommend Dragon Lake

Serving was hot and prompt at a busy time of day (lunch). LOVELY hot sizzling food, servings TOOO BIG.. amazing taste, and the service is friendly. May I recommend the prawn cutlets, the satay combination and the sweet and sour pork (all eaten by my partners in food crime).. and the daily specials are well worth it except if you... More

Took our 2 year old for dinner, the restaurant was packed which was a good sign. We were put at a back table which suited us as dining out is to be enjoyed not interrupted by a possibly grumpy toddler. Waitress asked if we wanted entree and main at the same time, yes please - entree was for Miss 2.... More

We quite enjoyed our takeaway from here -- it was one of the few truly non-seafood meals we had during our two weeks in Merimbula. Nothing outstanding but it was tasty and we will certainly order from them again next year when we go back to Merimbula.

We got takeaway from here while in Merimbula. Was fast, fresh and tasty. Perhaps a bit old school Chinese food but perfect takeaway and a quiet night in.
