It's so nice to see that Dragon Lake is back in the centre of town. Now at 58 Market street next to Nori Hub and opposite the Reject Shop Car Park, means it's easy to get to for a quick pick up. The flavours of...their food beats any other Chinese meal in the area. We travel a long way just to eat Dragon Lake Chinese. Being a takeaway only, they've focused on the most popular Chinese dishes. Everyone's favourite is on the menu, but I'm sure if it's not there they can toss something together. My favourite is the combination satay. Hubby likes the bbq pork in plum sauce and our kids like Mongolian beef or the battered chicken with honey sesame seed sauce. Their dim sims are home made and delicious. Wish I lived in Merimbula so I could eat Dragon Lake Chinese more often. Thanks for lunch William. You're the best!More

This place is no longer a restaurant and has moved from the Comfort Inn and reopened as Chinese and bubble tea take away. It’s a fairly standard menu (nothing exciting) with no chef’s specials. I would describe it as plain Australian Chinese food. The prices...have risen but in saying that, the serves are generous.More

We've always been huge fans of both the standard takeaways and the lunch specials. The food has always been fresh and tasty. Service is lovely and the takeaway is ready to go within ten to fifteen minutes. Unfortunately we have visited three times in recent...weeks and the restaurant has been closed despite posts on Facebook saying it's open. I know they're now catering to bus tours but we won't be back. Hope the tours make up for all the local business lost. A real pity in a town where businesses are struggling to survive.More

In town this week I dined here on Sunday and Tuesday nights. Quiet, only diner. Plenty of takeaways going out. Sunday night I had sweet corn chicken soup, prawns with ginger and shalots and fried rice. I thought the fried rice was a little salty...but the rest very good, good ingredients and good size serves. Tuesday night, also quiet, had the same soup and ordered sweet and sour chicken with steamed rice, it was good, but lacking pineapple in sweet and sour. Couple of glasses of Chardonnay each night. Service was good, efficient. Prices reasonable. From me 8/10. Highly recommended.More

We were so glad we found this Chinese restaurant, in with a motel up on the hill. The lady was lovely, and our takeaway didn’t take all that long and was reasonably priced. You can eat in also, and the restaurant looked clean and comfy....I ordered chicken chow mein and honestly it was one of the best I’ve ever had. It was full of chunky fresh vegetables and as we all know, sometimes you get more small cubes of frozen vegetables than fresh. It was really nice. Lots of tender chicken as well as all the fresh vegies. A good decent serve…..I had the rest the next day. I’d definitely go here again.More

We went to Merimbula for holiday with the kids. The food was okay, but the service was really bad. Our server did not seemed happy doing her job. She cleaned up our table even if we were not done eating. Worse, she was very rude....We saw her talking behind our back to the cashier. Not sure what she was saying but it was apparent that they were talking about us. Perhaps we looked a bit “foreign” compared to their other white patrons? In short, we did not feel welcomed at all. So even if the food was alright, we would never ever good back to this place again. I would also recommend that the server be trained in customer service and/ or cultural diversity.More

This place was actually next door to my motel, so I went there for convenience. It was the usual Chinese range of dishes, decent prices, and friendly service. I went for a combination satay dish with a side of rice and just some tea. It...was pretty tasty, good satay flavour, it did taste like a bit of sugar had been thrown in but that's okay. I'd recommend it if you want something inexpensive and tasty and easy. I walked in wearing my thongs and shorts and they were fine with it.More

We've eaten here on many occasions and keep returning each holiday. It used to be located down near the lake but is now the main restaurant at the Comfort Inn hotel on the hill. It may not have a traditional Chinese ambience but it is...clean, neat and the staff are friendly. The food is delicious - recommendations include the smoky wok flavoured fried rice and combination chow mein with crispy noodles. For a few extra dollars you can have extra meat. We thoroughly recommend this local Chinese restaurant.More
