Hingston China in Darwin

Ok. Hingston is Hingstons. Small, busy and loud and good. I like Hingstons as it is consistent. The food is always good value, lots of locals come and get their dinner takeways and the table service is quick but also hit and miss. but it is Hingstons.

The food in this restaurant is just amazing. Hingston cooks authentic chinese recipes while Nok runs the restaurant the family help out - consequently, it's also a really friendly place. Don't let the décor fool you - it's a really clean place but their expenditure goes on the food, not on the frippery. If it's available, order the soft shelled... More

I had to reveal my revelation of the delivery service from Hingstons!! I'm not sure if I've had my head buried in the sand but now I know of this delivery service, life is complete! Hingstons still being the Chineses cuisine in the NT now has out done itself by delivering to my door step. Can it get any better... More

Here you can find the true taste of China - each mouthful I close my eyes and can imagine I'm in a strange land - thanks for the explosion of tastes.

Been here several times, dishes generous and flavoursome, nice family place but the last visit left me and my friend with strong MSG reactions overnight. I won't be returning until they leave off the chemicals.

The food is not very nice, and there is not enough meat in the dishes. And the batter on the prawns is disgusting.

The handy eat out place to be. Excellent food and value for money. I sometimes ordered meal if I tired of cooking or a ready ordered meal for unexpected friends of guests arrival or a catering venue.

Darwin has a reputation of bad food. We tried a few Thais in Cullen Bay and City, Chinese at parap, they are horrible. Although abit away from the CBD, this one is the best Chinese in town from the tripadviser and word of mouth. So we went here to try and definitely recommend the chicken satay. Would definitely be back... More
