About Fat Dragon
A fat, well-fed dragon is a happy and not-hungry dragon, and this magical, diner-style Asian restaurant in Mount Lawley is guaranteed safe bet if you’re looking for authentic Chinese cuisine served up in an old-school, kung-fu fighting environment. The name is taken from a 1970s Bruce Lee parody called Enter the Fat Dragon and the Lee family (no relation!) have been dishing up some of Perth’s best and most beloved Chinese food since that very decade. Recently reopened up off Walcott Street, just down Astor Lane and right next to the Astor Theatre, Fat Dragon is a homage to the classic Chinese take-out but with freshness and flavour given high priority. For punchy Asian eats, Fat Dragon can’t be beat – book now!

Fat Dragon is an Asian diner with a difference, located on Walcott Street in Perth’s buzzing Mount Lawley suburb. Don’t expect bog-standard fare here, oh no no, because the food offering at Fat Dragon is truly a cut above the rest. Their lunch specials offer incredible value with big portions, inexpensive prices and speedy service meaning you can pop in on your lunch break and fill yourself up with hot tasty grub that will keep you going until dinner time and beyond! Open 6 days a week, this Perth eatery is open for dinner Tuesday through to Sunday, and open for lunch from Wednesday to Saturday week in, week out.
If you’re heading to this Mount Lawley hotspot for a big feed during the evening, you’re sure to be overwhelmed with the amount of choice the menu provides. Choose from starters such as crispy duck and shiitake mushroom dumplings or original san choy bow (Chinese lettuce wraps with minced pork and chilli) to kickstart your Fat Dragon feast. For mains, you can pick from rice, noodles, old favourites or special dishes depending what you’re in the mood for. We highly recommend trying their crispy pork chops tossed with honey mustard and black pepper or the flash-fried Kung Pao chicken which consists of crunchy bite-sized chicken cooked with Shanghai vinegar, dried chilli and palm sugar. One thing’s for sure, you’ll be walking out of this fine establishment feeling like quite the Fat Dragon!
Great food, great atmosphere, great service and very friendly staff. I was impressed when the waiter took our order I requested a large fried rice and he suggested that a small would be more than sufficent for the two of us. He was right. The servings were generous and we ended up getting a "doggy bag". Will definatly go there again.
The food was good and being my second time the services is slow. I mean we were asked if we wanted a bottle of water, we said yes, but then forgot that we were still waiting for our bottle. 15 mins. They are very busy and think maybe sections should be given to waitress so they have there own section to look after.
Great experience, food was great with generous portions ,well priced and service quick and very friendly. Seating was comfortable, great atmosphere and able to have a normal conversation at the table. Just needed more cider selections.
