Last week, on Thursday night, I popped into Linga Longa as I wanted to try something from their new menu. Of course, there was what I always wanted to see on a menu, "Trio of Seafood". This dish consisted of prawns, bugs and scallops which were cooked to perfection with fresh seasonal vegetables and rice. The menu said "Just Delicious"... More

This was our first time at Linga Longa Edge Hill, what a wonderful tasty restaurant, with a lovely atmosphere. The staff and management were wonderful. We went in a group of ten for a friends farewell, everyone of us enjoyed our meals, entree, mains and delightful deserts. We will all be returning to taste other dishes on this wonderful menu....

This was my third trip to Linga Longa - previously with some girlfriends and on this occasion with my Husband on a date night. We ordered from the A-la-Carte menu (I have tried the Tapas on previous trips and they are delicious!) and were delighted with the Bruschetta Mafiosa (with pesto, ham and boccocini) and then with a lamb rack...

Had a great family dinner last night and loved the changes to the menu. Very friendly staff and the service is impeccable. Meals are great value and a nice size. We'll definitely be back for A-la-Cart or Tapas. It's a very enjoyable evening whichever one you choose.
