Lagoon Dining is a restaurant and bar dishing up food that leans heavily on Chinese culinary traditions. It is an expression of food we love to eat and to cook, dished up heartily alongside booze we like to swill - a place for friends and fun.

    Exceptional food in a nice, warm and quiet space. Price is a bit high but there is a lot love and hard work in each dish. The wine list is very impressive. We had a great date.

    A hidden gem on Lygon St. No nasty street spruiking, no gaudy signs. Instead an understated exceptional eatery. Staff were attentive and helpful. "Feed me" was definitely the solution to the interesting menu, and every element was delicious. We'll be back next time we're in Melbourne.
