If this restaurant was in any mid to large city it would go unnoticed. However, in bucolic Basking Ridge it is pretty much the only game in town for Chinese and that makes mediocre food bubble to the top. Unfailingly under spiced the dishes tend to melt into one another. Chefs specials aren't....special. I WILL give a shout-out to the... More

Have been here for lunch and dinner. Food is good, well presented. Some appetizers like egg roll and Scallion pancake are greasy and have had to ask for another napkin to blot oil. Don't order them any longer. Lunch: Portions cost on average $12.and not large. For Chinese food I think much. Dinner: Portions are more costly than the average... More

We have often gotten take out and were pleased. They are fast and the food is decent with a decent selection. We decided to try eating there last Sunday. Big mistake! The waiter was rude; spoke little English and screwed up our order twice due to his non-comprehension of our language. Take out only in he future!

My family and I decided to try Ling Ling for the first time today. The restaurant was pleasantly decorated, with soft traditional Chinese music in the background. The manager and a well-dressed woman were highly attentive. Our waiter appeared to be a novice, respectful and helpful but struggling to get our order straight. Food preparation time appeared relatively long, and... More

After a long delayed flight from the uk I was looking forward to a nice meal in basking ridge. As it was the 4th July this was the only place open close to the Marriott. The restaurant is clean and the service is superb. The dumpling starter was excellent. The main course of black bean sauce was disappointing due to... More

Simply the best Chinese food around. If you dine in, you will be treated to excellent service. All the people working there are respectful and polite. The woman behind the counter is a wonderful, friendly person who you feel truly appreciates your patronage. I recommend the chicken pineapple rice and their crab rangoon appetizer.

This is what Ling Ling was voted and they deserve the title. Food here is consistently excellent and the service is unmatched. You won't go wrong coming here. Can't name a favorite dish, all are good.

I've been here very often. I really like their shrimp fried rice and shrimp and broccoli. The staff is super nice and the place is cozy and pretty big.

We typically order Chinese food to go, but wanted to visit Ling Ling for our first time visit. The staff was very friendly, professional and attentive to our needs. The appetizers and main courses were very good, if it's flagged as hot, it is hot. The dry noodles to start were a little dry and disappointing. The tea was very... More

I know this restaurant has received some very high ratings, but at least for lunch I'd not rate it much above average the two times I've been there. But the people who run it are very friendly and the restaurant is also very pleasant, so I'm ready to give it a try at dinner. But for lunch I'll stick to... More
