Amazing food!! We ordered the “feed me” menu and they catered perfectly to dietaries, the food was perfectly timed and so so delicious and such amazing value for money! The snapper was divine and overall, an incredible dining experience!

We always have an amazing meal here, it’s modern Asian food that is cooked to perfection with new interesting takes on classic dishes.

5 stars for food and service every time we have visited. Everything is yum, but favourite dishes we go back for are the Hot & Numbing Beef Tartare, and the Rolled Rice Noodles.

1000/10. What an absolute pleasure. These guys got it perfect. Get in quick before it's got a three-month waiting list.

Best dining experience I've had in a long time. Excellent menu with great options, but not overwhelmingly long. My vegan companion was really well catered for as well.
Some of the most interesting food in Melbourne at the moment. Really innovative and refreshing.

Fantastic and personable service. Great drinks list. Open kitchen. Well priced. Cannot fault this place. Can't wait for an excuse to go back.

Lagoon Dining is superb. Chris, Ned, and Keat are all superb, it is definitely one of our favourite places to eat. Nothing is ever too much, they always make you feel welcome, and at this time given the current social restrictions have got an excellent take-away menu as well. For us the popcorn chicken, char siu pork, and the malt parfait are all time favourites.

Our lunch was magnificent, nothing could have been better. A great relief that Lagoon is back from the shut down and on fire. Excellent meal, great fun being back to normal, that is a best as it can be right now. Cheers Chris and Team, the Kelly’s

Great experience. Lovely service, delicious food, groovy fit out (apart from strange grille on windows). Had a terrific night. Only disappointment was the cocktails which were really not at all exciting, but hopefully they’ll work on them for next time.

Lagoon Dining is an impeccable balance of cool, casual and quality.
The cool is the subtle kind of cool you can’t observe or process but only feel, not an in your face trendy but a timeless forever piece like a fine blazer or a woven leather belt.
The casual is the kind where it hits the mark for not only an easy post work pick me up meal but also a place you could take your in laws and impress with your fine tastes.
The quality, well all you have to do is eat there and know. It’s downright delicious, interesting and exciting.

Calling this place 'just' a Chinese restaurant undersells it. The food is exquisite and it's clear that chefs Keat and Ned along with their dedicated kitchen crew put in a lot of passion and care into their creations. Every bite is flavorful. Love the beef tartare and the short ribs! The cocktails are all excellent. Front of house staff led by Chris are attentive, friendly and professional as well. Overall it has a relaxed, hip Melbourne vibe but with the quality of upper end restaurants; a place where you can enjoy fine dining quality food but not have to worry too much about a suit jacket or the bill!

We had a lovely night. Food and wine were fabulous. Easy to select well matched plates to share. Prices were reasonable.

Best of al we could hear each other despite it being a little noisy and being seated at the bar in front of the kitchen. We hadn't expected to sit there and did book for outside but weather and construction got in the way.Staff were fabulous about being flexible moving us in when the noise got too loud.

Next time we might book an inside table instead

I thought I could cook as a good home cook I couldn’t even begin to make one of those dishes .It was next level . I mean I wouldn’t even know the ingredients and obviously I wouldn’t have the skill .
I also want to come back as there is so much more to try which is often not the case !
Congratulations and I live in CARLTON
