“Party at Lings”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Another fantastic night at Lings this time for a 65th birthday party. We had a lovely banquet all served fresh, hot and to the exceptionally high standard which is the normal here at Lings. Chicken and sweet corn soup, my favourite ribs, crispy duck and many fantastic main courses. All hosted by the lovely Long herself.
You cannot go wrong here, there were no complaints and no dissapointments. We had karaoke afterwards which was loads of fun. All and all a great evening with friends and family. And need I mention the legendary Long. Happy 65th birthday Heather ! Here's to the next 65.

“Lovely meal”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

My husband decided on Lings after checking all the reviews. We decided that due to the comments regarding loud music, we would check the noise level prior to sitting down. Luckily it was quiet - background music of a classical kind was playing but it was just in the background. The place is nicely decorated and the menu extensive. We ordered duck and pineapple, sweet and sour pork beijing style, singapore noodles, special rice and seaweed. All were lovely and the portions huge. The lady running the place was lovely although a tad chatty. But thats not necessary a bad thing.

“Not Good”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Went on a Friday night in a small group to celebrate our birthdays. There were only two other tables occupied and no atmosphere whatsoever - apart from loud music from a precariously placed over-sized speaker. The waiting staff were very attentive however,and brought a balloon and desert with sparklers when they became aware that we were celebrating. We opted for the set menu as it seemed to provide exceptional value, but unfortunately as we progressed through the courses it became clear that this value is in line with the quality of the food, which is mediocre at best. Portion sizes are good however, and everything was hot and reasonably well presented. Based on the meal we had then I wouldn't want to return, but maybe if you were to select from the menu then the quality may be better possibly.
