We have eaten in many good restaurants in Cairns but our evening at Linga Longa was probably the best experience. Welcoming and friendly, with attention to detail but without taking itself too seriously, it turned a last minute decision to dine out into a memorable evening. Reading the menu starts the mouth watering and the food itself was delicious with... More

We therefore didn't have a reservation but the staff could not have been more welcoming, efficient and professional. The food... More

This is a very busy restaurant but it... More

Approximately 40 of us dined at Linga Longa for lunch, yesterday. I couldn't wait to get onto this site to sing it's praises! The owner is a magnificent host and, prior to the meal, he had his chefs come out and explain the African themed fare. It was very obvious that the entire staff truly cared about the quality of...

Went to Linga Longa for a Friday night night with friends. The atmosphere when we arrived was buzzing. The service we received from the owner was exceptional. I cannot say enough about the food, the duck was absolutely delicious. My husband had a South African curry which I believe was on the specials board, he was still singing its praises... More
