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.

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

I have to start out by saying that we did not enter the restaurant, we ordered delivery to our hotel room. I don't know anything about the ambiance of the place or the cleanliness of the servers or the decor so I won't pretend to have an opinion on any of that. I'm just here at my hotel with my... More

Stopped by on the cold and quiet sunday evening. Ordered the dry and spicy chicken, ginger beef and the lignin's friend rice.Great service, very attentive and well dressed staff in their traditional chinese garments, food was good and very fast, nice and warm on top of hot plates. Washroom was very clean, and looks like lots of repeat customers.

Going here is like a step back in time. The beautiful Chinese decorative features definitely add to the charm of this place. The food and comfortable surrounds are great. I expecially love their Shrimp in Peaches and Cream. The attentive hosts and service are stellar.

If it wasn't for the amazing service, it is fair to say that our visit to Lingnan may have been regrettable. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Our waiters patiently and eloquently described the dishes to us; and the guy with the water jug promptly and continuously kept our glasses filled. We ordered the Beijing black bean chicken, ginger...

We order from here. Best Chinese food delivery in Edmonton hands down! They have forgotten some items in our orders before but they are quick to make things right!

Ordered several dishes for a group of 4, for pick up. Almond chicken, pork fried rice, mushroom chop suey and shrimp in black bean sauce. All were excellent! Will use again next time I am in Edmonton.

I have been to Lingnan many times, the restaurant caters to Caucasians you never see Asians in the restaurant. The food is good but not authentic Chinese if you were to go to China town a few blocks away. The prices are expensive, the atmosphere is fun with good service. If you want good North American chinese, this is the... More

After the recommendations from some Edmontonians we tried this 'landmark' Chinese Resto. What a disappointment . . . should have noticed that THERE WERE NO CHINESE DINERS in the resto and perhaps we shouldn't have ordered the 'banquet' and gone á la carte instead. I can't remember worse 'Chinese' food than this ~ and if according to some reviews this... More
