On a wet and gloomy evening, my family and I ran up through the back stairs through the kitchen to this delightfully ornate restaurant. There was a large group and a few couples already settled in for a lovely evening. The service was cheerful and attentive, with chairs being pulled out and napkins... read more

We dined at Ling Wah on a Thursday night after reading the reviews about the entrance thru the kitchen I had to see for myself and yes this was true. The food was ok but nothing very exciting about that. The best thing was the hot towels after we finished. We ordered lemon Chicken, Fried rice and scallops with Vegetables... More

A Frankston Chinese favourite for many years on Nepean Highway. A very spacious place with good service always and some great lunch specials to eat-in or takeaway. Probably eaten here 50+ times with family and friends over the years. I have met several owners over that time and always been well looked after and the prices are very reasonable. If... More

We favour Ling Wah when we feel like basic, well cooked Chinese food. Not at all pretentious, you get what you pay for and serves are generous, love their spicy squid. It is my favourite menu item.

Busy Sunday, required to enter from back car park, up stairs, through kitchen - like any Chinese restaurant you don't want to go through the kitchen. Dim Sims ok, sliced pork Sweet and sour - received in batter. Chicken and vegs - no flavour. at end of meal, return through kitchen

Being Valentine's Day, the restaurant was packed. We were there to celebrate a birthday. The banquet was chosen as we thought it would be the easiest option. Very slow service, especially the food. Dirty plates were left in front of us literally until the next dish was ready. The amount of food was questionable. Only enough to fill the bowl... More

It is 5 years since we dined at Ling Wah..our family relocated..at that time we dined at least monthly . As is the norm a return after many years can be a disappointment . But not in this case. Superb is a genuine superlative and does not applaud them enough. Cannot fault ambience, food, service and staff.
