This is one of my regulars, the food is fresh and tasty and very reasonably priced. There is always a happy vibe and Frank and all the staff are happy to please. The C or D banquet is enough food to feed the nation!

I had dinner here with the local school council, the outside is very uninspired and looks like a takeaway only. Inside the dining area is quite long but very narrow and decorated in the usual yellow and red Chinese colours though not very creatively. The food while plentiful had the feel and taste of a food court rather than a... More

The service is excellent and there is more than enough food in all the courses served. The manager and owner, Frank is a very friendly guy who like to... More

This is our local Chinese staple. Frank and Gwen have had this place for years and they serve up good food and make your night (or lunch) a fun occasion. If you are celebrating, let Frank know and he will find the appropriate song on the music machine so the whole restaurant can join your table in singing "happy birthday"... More

Beautiful fresh food and wonderful service. Nothing is too much trouble. We live interstate and try to go to Lion Dance whenever we are in Melbourne. Definitely worth trying if you haven't already.

Wonderful selection of very tasty food delivered by attentive staff. Lovely and clean and nothing was too much trouble for them, including ice and water at regular intervals. It was very busy but we were all made to feel important and we were not rushed.

The night was made more special by the local community performing a Lion Dance at the restaurant to welcome the New Year. A very propitious evening prior to our daughter's wedding the next day.

Lion Dance has been in Williamstown for decades and is always teeming with customers. Very friendly. Very clean and the best fried rice with plum sauce that I have ever tasted! Recommended by a trusted friend and I couldnt agree more. Yum.
