Every time in Edmonton

Outside is rather unassuming, but inside - the food is great! Have dined there several times while traveling on business, and never, ever been disappointed. There are standard combination meals, but it's a lot more fun to explore the menu and try new things. The staff are very helpful... read more

It was August 9 and it was my wife's birthday. We had planned to go to an Indian restaurant, when we reached there, we find out that they were closed on Sunday. It was about 8:15 PM. I looked up on my phone for a Chinese restaurant nearby and I saw that Lingnan was less than of a mile (1... More

We went to this restaurant based on all the good reviews and ranking, but what a letdown. Being in the same industry, I just cannot believe that something like this passes as good Chinese fare, wow. The only great thing was service by the gentleman and the cocktails. We ordered 2 fried rice dishes and three entree, it all came... More

I've only ordered food for delivery - many times in fact - and I've never been disappointed - they provide consistently good food - my 1st choice for Chinese food in Edmonton.

Was there on Monday night with 30 cast and crew members from the filming of "It's Not My Fault" The vegetable fried rice was quite good. The ginger beef and fried shrimp had just the right kick Mix in the Seafood with Chinese Vegetables and you will find your taste buds loving every bite The Spring Rolls were light and... More

After watching the TV show about the Quon family we decided to ry the Lingnan for the first time. It is very unassuming from the outside, to the point I would almost say the looks may scare you away! Don't let the looks scare you, once inside it is highly decorated and appealing. It is decked out in red, gold... More

Food was under seasoned and bland. We're pushed to buy more expensive dishes and not what we wanted. Overall it was a disappointed evening

The Lingnan has been serving Edmonton and surrounding area with Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine for 68 years, a remarkable achievement. Four of us went there on a Sunday evening for the first time with high expectations. Parking was difficult and the restaurant was full. We had to wait quite a while to be served because it was busy. But once... More

From the outside, the Lingnan doesn't impress. It's a large, windowless warehouse-type building lost at the edge of Chinatown in a no-man's land behind MacEwan University, a casino and the messy construction of a sports stadium. But inside, it's a startling surprise. Tanks of large swimming fish greet you at the entrance, and further inside it's all red and black... More

Dreadful experience. The head waiter refused to move us from the table by the emergency exit. I was frozen and had to sit through a poor meal wearing 2 coats. There were only a few other customers in this big restaurant so being told that the other tables were reserved was nonsense! If my husband hadn't wanted to to revisit... More
