“Very friendly, great food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

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 shouldn't do this because it may get even busier, but they deserve it. The service can sometimes be a tad slow if ytou have a big group on a busy night but otherwise it is spot on.

“Old sckool chinese restaurant”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

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 dozens of years working tirelessly ) I recently had lunch there and was the only one. The service was bland there was no warmth and the food was bland too ( which it did not used to be ). Its a long time favourite of mine but it all seems very tired. Not sure if i will go back.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

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

“friendly, delicious, and value for money”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

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.

“Moonee Ponds Legend...”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

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 is kid friendly, but not pram friendly as there simply isn't the room
