Good enough to recommend

If you are looking for interesting décor or atmosphere you won't find it here. This restaurant makes no pretenses in being anything but what it is. A place that serves good simple Chinese meals. You don't linger here because once you've eaten there isn't any reason to stay. You eat and go simple... read more

Used to eat here when we lived in Melbourne as it was then popular with foreign students and local Chinese clientele. Was surprised that the clientele is no more just Asian/ Chinese but there were many Caucasians and even Indian customers. We missed the buns (baos) that Nam Loong is renowned for and we were impressed with the varieties on... More

I dined at Nam Loong by chance on a Sunday afternoon. This restaurant is located just outside the Chinatown gates and is easily missed walking past on Russell St. There were plenty of patrons, but I was the only Anglo in the shop, so I thought it must be good if the locals are eating here. The staff were friendly,... More

Educate your staff Nam Loong! I won't dine here because of your narrow mindedness, irrespective of your quality.There are plenty of other restaurants in Chinatown that are receptive to the blind. Wake up!!

We were a party of 6. They welcomed us and found us a table. This place is not huge, so you sit close to others. The food is amazing, so cheap too! Great before the theatre or a night out. The steamed buns are awesome!!
