“Simply the BEST”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Just had to return to Lims again. We just can't get enough of this wonderful, friendly and absolutely brilliant Chinese restaurant. The food is outstanding and the staff are wonderful.
The food is spectacular and so flavoursome. The food is not over priced as you pay for what you get and you definitely get the best here. The service is impeccable so I disagree with anyone who begs to differ.
A FANTASTIC PLACE TO EAT, LAUGH AND BE SERVICED GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE!!!!!!!!

“Truly amazing, highly recommend it!!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

Lim's Chinese restaurant- the best restaurant in south Australia! Our family's been going to Lim's for many years, always have the best experience and beautiful food plus friendly staff. We always have our family functions and get together there. All of my friends that I've introduced to Lim's, they LOVE it there! I don't understand why people complain about having to pay for water!! I mean you pay $1 or $1.50(for spring water- which we always do) you can drink as much as you want, come on!! All other places charge you for bringing in cakes $3-$5 per slice where as Lim's don't. So, people really should not complain about the water, get over it!! Love love love LIM'S!!

“Lims dine in review”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

They charged us $4 for tap water and after we had waited 50 minutes for our meals the hostess asked if us we wanted some more prawn crackers. We thought they were complimentary for the long wait; they were not. Charged us $3.50 for the prawn crackers. After our $120 meal I complained about the $4 tap water charge and they said they would remove it from the bill. They had the cheek to remove it from the hand docket and then still manually punch it in to the eftpos machine to try and charge us anyway! terrible service. Food was pretty average. No complaints for the food itself, it just took 50 minutes to come out and it was nearly $23 for a chinese take-away type meal served on a small plate

“Sadly over rated western Chinese”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

Sadly it was expensive, over-rated and they even charged for tap water. Food was only average even though we had 13 banquet guests! Won't bother coming back! Wait staff were ok, some seemed too bored and sleepy.

“FAST AND FRIENDLY”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

This has been our favourite chineese resturant for over 20 years the food is excellent service is very one on one and even if you only visit once or twice they remember you. the best part is the food is always the same, our pet hate is to find a good resturant only to go back and the food is different. we will be there eating our favourite fare hopefully for another 20 years
