Chose Ling Wah (without making a booking) as it was in walking distance of our hotel and were pleasantly surprised. Offering take away and restaurant dining, we loved the Chinese decorations on the walls and ceiling and dined in. Complimentary prawn crackers were immediately brought to our table, and we ordered drinks within a few minutes from a nice little... More

Haven't been to Ling Wah for a little while and after reading some average reviews we were a little hesitant, but thought we would decide for ourselves and so glad we did. Service was great, food was delicious and a very good evening was had!!

Despite turning up at 9:40pm for a restaurant that closes at 11pm, we were no more than 5 metres from the door when the staff member walked to the door and locked it. He looked straight as us, before turning his back and turning off the lights. Do not advertise "open until 11pm" if you plan to close over an... More

We have been going to the Ling Wah for a number of years now. I am a self confessed connoisseur of Chinese cuisine and having sampled dishes from various restaurants in Australia and overseas, including Hon Kong and China and I would rate Ling Wah as one of the very best. Their wait staff are outstanding.

Walked in and ordered a takeaway. Had to wait in excess of 30 minutes, although it was Valentine's Day, so that can be forgiven. Hot and Sour Soup was excellent. But the remainder of my food was very average. Soggy Sweet and Sour Fish was particulr disappointment.

We have been coming here for years and the food and service is outstanding. Not sure why there is a recent bad review, this is very unusual we have never had a bad experience. A banquet at $34 a head is great value for such quality food.

ONE WORD - DISAPPOINTING We went there as a table of 6 for Mother's Day which was not overly busy. We waited for a while to be served drinks and were only served when we approached staff. When we got our drinks they were not what we ordered. No apologies made. We ordered our entrees and got extra of something... More

Ling Wah has been our favoured Chinese restaurant for nearly 30 years. The previous owner appears to have retired, and a younger generation has taken over. Continuing the tradition of wonderful food, with one welcome addition - roast duck. Our favourites are the beef with black bean sauce, chicken cutlets sweet and sour, and combination in a bird's nest. Highly... More
