Our first date was a meal here & 25 years later we still love the food. We travel a lot and always find ourselves comparing 3 particular dishes with Ling's, the chinese hor d'oeuvres, ribs and crispy duck, we haven't found anywhere yet that does them as well - but we keep trying. It's excepionally good value for money and the service is quick, but you can ask for a break between courses if you need a rest.

Lovely little Chinese restaurant, intimate and friendly and very good value.
Expected small portions for the price but no, they were of normal size and quality.
We were treated very well from entering to leaving and the owner made time to come and chat with us, and even lit a firework to celebrate my wifes birthday.
Overall an excellent night out.

We tried the 'Early bird' menu which was very reasonable as we wanted to take some friends at a later date. The service was very good and the decor pleasant. The soup wasn't anything special, bland and luke warm. The combo was good and the duck was excellent. The main course was not very nice at all. Both of the dishes tasted the same, with very little meat. The sauces looked and tasted the same as the hot and sour soup.
We were very disappointed and will not be taking our friends there.
