“Fantastic Chinese food with a twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

This wasn't out first choice because the restaurant we actually wanted was booked up although in hindsight I'm confident we made the better choice with Lings on Kings, which is a fantastic unassuming place with a lot to offer. We ate last night and the charming and brilliant hostess greeted and seated everyone personally as they entered. There was a great atmosphere in the room thanks to the hostess and staff and the food was served quickly and was cooked perfectly. We opted for the set meal which seemed to have everything we had considered on the menu. BBQ Spare ribs, Crispy duck in pancakes etc. It was delicious and seemed to be ridiculously under priced for the sheer amount of food that was brought out. No one was rushing for us to finish and the service was timed to perfection. Aside from the great food and atmosphere the highlight of the evening was the extraordinary hostess Ling who was on form cracking jokes with the diners and singing karaoke, getting everyone involved in the fun Thank you all for a fantastic evening.
