Great Lunch Spot

We love their lunch. You get an appetizer, soup and entree at a reasonable price. The dinner menu is the same but you pay for the appetizer and soup and the entree is HUGE, enough for 2 people especially if you get an appetizer or soup.

Ting's has wonderful food as well as VERY affordable prices. We pretty much only go to Ting's when we are wanting Chinese food. Nice to be able to feed our family of 5 for a very reasonable price.

This restaurant was recommended by friends. We arrived for Sunday lunch. The food was great. The Hot & Sour soup was actually hot (spicy). The prices were very reasonable... Included entree, choice of rice and soup, crab Rangoon, and wanton for $6.95.

We stopped in after work since we had all travelled for our project. Our meals all turned out delicious. I was very happy with everything that came out. We ordered family style and there was more than enough for everyone to eat. My personal opinion was they actually cooked fresh, so many Chinese restaurants have turned into "cut the bag... More

Typical American Chinese. About like Panda Express buts little more expensive. Quick service which is why it feels like a sit down buffet.

For the Cedar Rapids area there really are no good Chinese places. Tings is the best out of all the options. The egg rolls only come in beef but are very crispy and fresh. The meat is good quality and not covered in batter.

My wife had sesame chicken with fried rice, I had general tso chicken. My cousin had hot braised chicken. All were quite delicious. This is one of the best chinese restaurants around. The dinner pricing is a little bit pricey but you get ample serving sizes. The lunch specials are a wonderful value!

Looked this place up on our local TV stations best places to eat web site, decided to give it a try, very glad we did! Food was great, waitress was very friendly and, best of all, the price. We were there for lunch and most all of their menu was less than $6, this includes soup, spring roll, and crab... More

Have been here on two occasions. The food was average at best, much better at other local Chinese restaurants. The service in my opinion was pretty poor. The hostess who seated us seemed like she didn't want to be at work and pretty much hated her job. And more funny to me but on both occasions when leaving, our waitress... More
