I am going to start this review by saying, this was my second time at the Lingnan. The first time we had ordered off the menu and it was very good. This time, not so much. It was Mother's Day and we called for reservations. The earliest they could get us in was 7:30 PM. We had a busy day,... More

Trip advisor rarely let's us down, but they did with this place. The food was stereotypical Chinese restaurant completely westernized to cater to old white grandparents (and that's the only people that were eating inside at the time we picked up our food). The decor (looked like it hadn't been updated since the 70's would have been awesome if the... More

This place has been in Edmonton for 70 years. The building on the outside doesn't look like too much but once you go inside you will be amazed. Very clean and elegant. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. We have always had the smorg. There isn't a whole lot but it is kept fresh and you... More

I want to review this place for a long time. The Lingnan is practically an institution in Edmonton. I have fond memories of this restaurant - it was one of my Grandfather's favourite spots - he would take us here when he visited - that was in the 70's and I was a kid. Saturday April 8, 2017 attended with... More

Excellent dinner with long time friends at Lingnan. Our friends had not been there for some time but were impressed by the continued good quality food and great service. Our friends would definitely come back to this restaurant

Great tasting traditional Chinese food. Service is second to none and the staff were friendly. Would recommend this restaurant and we will be returning. We had the deluxe dinner for two, had our fill and leftovers to take home.

This extremely fun and friendly Western-Style Chinese Restaurant is both cool in its decor and service, and awesome in its food. The food is delicious, and the service is fun! The staff are really friendly and have a great sense of humour! The site is decorated in a very kitsch Chinese imperial style which just adds to the experience.

During a recent visit to China all I could think about was getting home and going to either the Lingnan or Chicken for Lunch (CFL). Maybe it is what I am used to, or maybe it is because I am only partly Asian. Caucasian. We had Beijing (Peking) Duck in Beijing. It was tasty and a good experience, but I... More

We tried this place based on reviews and location of being close to downtown Edmonton (not sure who's leaving these reviews b/c the food was not great at all - not even close). Upon arrival, I was impressed by the decor, it's quite nicely decorated in authentic looking Chinese decor from floor to ceiling and the servers wear nice Chinese... More
