We had the pan fried chicken and prawn dumplings, which were so so so good. Plump, meaty, crispy and authentic. We also had the Shanghi veg and beef noodle soup which were so tasty, except the beef was a little chewy for the kids hence the 4 stars.
Kid friendly, reasonably priced, easy to find parking and authentic (the place is run by chinese aunties and uncles).
Would definitely come back to try the other dishes!!
Haven’t been here for years and the food still taste good. We enjoyed every dish except the red bean pancake (not in picture). It was a dessert.
Service was good, the lady was very accommodating and nice to see her chatting with all the customers in the restaurant.
Price was very reasonable and will no doubt be back if we are nearby.
Yummy! Host were great in their recommendations. MUST try their shanghai noodles and dumplings for sure!
Long Dragon Dumpling had on their menu a large range of dumplings and other popular Chinese dishes. I’d been here a few times and tried a few meals; the pork & chicken/prawn dumplings, the shanghai crispy duck, fried ribs, sweet & sour pork ribs, beans with pork mince etc. The food seemed to be consistently good although overall pretty average. I found the dumplings to be cheaper and tastier in Chinatown, but logistically it was easier to find parking in the area, and the venue was generally comfortably quiet. Service was friendly and quick, making it a nice casual dinner spot.
By far the best dumplings in Melbourne I saw the owners having lunch and I was amazed how big and authentic they looked and decided to grab a take away frozen bag. I could say these are the best I have tried. They don't stick to the oan when frying and puff up like proper dumplings should. I ended up grazing 4 bag a couple days later. They have very tradition Chinese meals and a cost that will never be beaten especially in south Melbourne. It reminds me of an traditional Chinese restaurant doesn't need to be a fancy atmosphere all we need is good home cooked Chinese food and this is the place to be.
