The vegetarian spring rolls were okay, however the main dishes lacked flavour and spice. I was quite disappointed with the experience but the staff are very friendly.

Fried rice was average but the Satay Beef entree was very tough and apart from being hot it lacked flavour.

Hubby and I went to the Ginling last night 1st Oct. for dinner - the food is so delicious - obviously true to flavour because 90% of customers were Chinese - great indication of authenticity. Just love this place and the food.
