What they say
  • We had been there 4 times now and so far all the dishes are nice not too oily or salty. Taste clean. Their chinese ball wine dessert are interesting and try post in weechat so can get it for FREE. We had try sweet n sour and steam fish and we prefer steam one. The crab with roe are amazing, shanghai dumplings are the best. Make sure you ask for ginger to eat with...

  • We were lucky to be invited to check out the new dumpling and chinese restaurant in Melbourne Central. Located on level 3 next to Hoyts and Party World. We had the standard pan fried pork dumplings, xiao long bao and pork bun dumplings. All of the dumplings were tasty and juicy.

    We also had half a Peking Duck which includes Fried Udon noodles with duck meat. Although the Peking duck was slightly on the drier side the noodles were tasty. Would love to see an improvement in the duck. The presentation of the dishes were done well and the service was good. The staff were attentive.

  • Located in Melbourne Central next to Hoyts, Lilong's adds quality and vigour to the otherwise bustling, loud scene in the food court downstairs.

    We thought our 5 dishes would be too much but we somehow managed to demolish it all!
    Lilong is quite new, the vibes are lit and the service a little touch and go.

    However, when the dumplings are this plentiful and feeds your cravings - it's a not bad experience at all.

    As the other reviewers were saying: there's a special right now where the XLB's are 50% off when you spent more than $25.00 - which is honestly not hard to do if you're at Lilong for a meal.

  • Quite impressed with the atmosphere and I really enjoyed the food.
    I would like to recommend for the pan fried buns and prwn n chives dumpling.
    If I have another chance to try other dish I will tell more lol.

  • The real deal. Good menu and variety. On top of that, the taste was very authentic.
    The only thing I have to recommend is to ask for the ginger shreds when you order the siu loong pau :)
