I have just ordered sweet and sour chicken balls with rice. First of all the chicken balls weren't even balls - more like strips of chicken! Secondly the chicken was very tough couldn't even chew it and thirdly the rice was burnt! This is possibly the worst chinese take away I have had and a complete waste of money! The... More

Cannot eat from any other Chinese without being disappoint as I always find myself saying "it's not as nice as ling yan". Ordered for 5 people on a Friday night (probably the busiest night) told a 20minute wait which is very reasonable. Everything prepared on arrivals just the portion of chips to ensure its still fresh. Love it

I've been here twice and both times I've thoroughly enjoyed the food. Really tasty and fresh. Will definitely be back! A top tip is to phone your order in first as it's always really busy!

Having used this take away for many years I have recently stopped. The food is now very greasy with lots of cooking oil. My last meal was unedible due to the amount of oil used.

This used to be our local take-away until we moved home a few years ago. The meals were always excellent, so when we were in the area recently we just had to call in and sample the food again. No need to worry. . All the meals we got were superb.
