Where to start. Food was beauuutifull. Exquisite. Delicious. Atmosphere was amazing. Ling is the hidden gem of southport. She is the sweetest loveliest person we have ever met. My fiance is the most critical person ever and couldnt critisize a thing she was overwhelmed by the whole experience. Cant believe how amazing our night was. Loved every second of our evening if you go somewhere else you will be dissapointed. Gordon ramseys cooking couldnt compare. Ling made our holiday. One last thing.....beetroot shaped like roses and a sparkler in our desert. I could rave all day. About how good it was. Dont miss out go and find out for yourself.

Four of us family made a visit to lings again on Tuesday evening, we had our usual Banquet, Chicken and sweetcorn soup, ribs, spring rolls, sesame prawns on toast, duck and pancakes and four or five main courses followed by toffee apples and ice cream, all of which was, as always, excellent and delightfully served by Ling herself. The restaurant was not very busy and Ling took plenty of time to chat to us in her usual friendly way.
Nothing was too much trouble, all the food was served fresh and hot, and we had plenty of drinks to go with it.
Ling is a marvellous hostess and each time we go it is like seeing a good friend, we so much enjoy coming here that we simply wouldn't want to go to any other Chinese.
If you haven't been here then you have simply missed out on the best! I have eaten Chinese all over and never had better!!
Many thanks Ling, and see you again soon.

My wife and I have been going to Lings for a few years and we must say even though the food was always great tasty food, we have just returned from LIngs again and can say the food is even more tasty. We love the place so much we now take the children and they love it just as much as we do. Great food, great atmosphere, great service and a wonderful hostess. Visitors to Southport must try this wonderful restaurant. Thanks to all at Lings.

We went here as we fancied a meal before our holiday, and wow, what a meal!

We sat down and unfortunately we were the only people in the restaurant (it was a Thursday evening) and we were given menus and asked did we want drinks.

The food was impeccable, the ribs we had were the tastiest either of us had eaten and the duck was brilliant. If you dont finish you are offered to take it home in trays.

Will be returning at a weekend when there is a great atmosphere!

Took Chinese business people who said that it was the most authentic Chinese meal they have had since arriving in the U.K. The best crispy duck anywhere, highly recommended.
