We took our family to Lins's on a Saturday evening. The food was very good but I have to give the place a poor rating because of our surly waitress. She had no personality & was very rude to my son-in-law when he asked if he could substitute lo mein instead of rice with his dinner. She just about barked... More

There are a lot of options for Chinese food in the area, but I prefer Lin's for delivery. We have learned that with pretty much any restaurant it's best to order on Thursday through Sunday (the best chef is in the house). The delivery is usually pretty quick (within 40 minutes) and the food is certainly better than average. I... More

We have ordered for delivery a lot from them. The food is outstanding. You're told 45 minutes and it's NEVER been more than 20 to 25 minutes. Very courteous delivery people

I took my family to this place on a Sunday night. The food was ok, nothing to write home about, and the waitress was just extremely rude. With all the dinning choices in the Bristow/Manassas/Gainesville there's no reason to eat ok food while being treated like garbage.

I was a former fan of this resturant 8 years ago, after they opened. I used to go 2-3 times a month. Yet in the recent few years changes started, and I became slow more disappointed. First portions shrunk, shimp n scallops got smaller, taste of food changed. I stop going there for about 2 years, until tonight. Regretfully I... More

Our 7 year d grand daughter, from Inner Mongolia, chose to celebrate her birthday at Lin's. Delicious. We ordered Crispy Beef, Crispy Chicken, Orange Beef, Sesame Chicken, and Combo Fried Rice. Everything came quickly and hot. Each dish was more delicious than the next. We has ginger tea as well. Well priced. Delicious. Great service.

Heard from several people that this is "the place" to get good Chinese food and they were right. It is much better than my normal "go to" for that type of food. I ordered delivery and even with the delay in getting the food to my house, it was still piping hot and everything tasted great. The egg rolls were... More

I thought all cooks in restaurants had to wear hat or hairnet. Hair found in my food 1/2 way through my dish said it all. The 10% discount given was NOT what I wanted. I simply wanted to inform them of the hair so it will never happen to anyone else!! 90 cents off my meal is not what i... More

Decided to try Lin's take out today since I hadn't brought my lunch to work as usual. A fortuitous state of occurrences -- my order was ready by the time I walked across the parking lot, was well-packaged, correct, with sauces/fork and scrumptious! The Beef Drunken Noodles were just the right amount of spicy, had a rich sauce and extra... More
