Excellent Friendly Service. Lovely traditional Chinese decor that is rarely seen these days anywhere in the world. The staff and the management team of Amy and Kinman made us feel very welcome. The food served is placed on a hot warming plate. That was great. Love the ambience.

We thought the meal was very poor, we ordered ribs that were extremely poor and lemon chicken that had a hint of fish in the batter.

Last month we popped in for dinner and, as always, the food was delicious. Our extended family has frequented this restaurant since I was a teenager and even all these years later, the quality and the service is still excellent. This place is always crazy-busy (for good reason) so consider making a reservation to avoid disappointment. This is not a... More

36 friends met at this restaurant for a birthday party, we were given a private room with its own washrooms, large tables for 12. The food was delicious and served msg free as requested . The waiters asked all of us about food allergies twice. They supplied great service for the 3 hours that we thoroughly enjoyed. Always a good... More

This is an old family run chinese restaurant with amazing food. The spicy chicken hot and dry is addicting. We nicknamed it crack chicken because you can't get enough. The busboys are attentive and dressed well in chinese jackets. The owners make a point of visiting their guests. It can get busy and parking can be tough so go early... More

The Lingnan is a throw back in time (in a positive way). Old school servers wearing uniforms, ornate Chinese decor, drink menu on the placemats, hot stones for food plates, but most importantly: Excellent food and great service. One of of my all time favourite places. Tip: they open at 5 pm and are closed on Tuesdays.

We were told the Lingnan was a great choice for an extended family dinner we were planning before a wedding. The promise from our friend was great food, great service and a reasonably quiet room at the back where we could visit as a group. Sounded good for what we wanted. The experience was that and more. We received a... More

The reviews were good so although the building looks dingy on the outside make sure you go in!! We enjoyed the green onion cake - an Edmonton must have - followed by Ginger beef, Lemon chicken Canton (no batter), Triple delight and steamed rice. The lemon chicken was the best we have ever ever tasted! The ginger beef also hit... More

I ordered several dishes this week thinking I would have extra to last the week as I am eating for one. I ordered the scallop rolls, Which were scallop and ham wrapped in bread and deep fried. They did not travel well, more bread than scallop. Also ordered the Beef aristocrat chow mein - was ok, noodles a bit gooey,... More
