“Good, Quick, Tastey Food”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

They are consistent in quality. You will enjoy.... for take out. I really look for the spicier dishes. They do this with no difficulty. If I am ordering out, this is the place in Ithaca to do that.

Not very good. Really below-average Chinese food. Disappointing.

“Comically bad service”
Reviewed 3 July 2012 via mobile

Ithaca has a terrible shortage of decent Chinese restaurants. Ling Ling was close and OK. But in the four years we have lived here, the food has been getting worse, and the service has become appalling. For a while, we made a little game around the bad service, but it gt so bad that we do not go anymore. A shame.

“Great takout”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

We often order takout from Ling Ling, and recently have also had dinner there in the restaurant. Takeout is exceptional - always ready in about "20 minute", which is just the right amount of time it takes for me to hop in the car, and drive to pick it up. My favorite is the Chicken and Broccoli, and have been known to order it "Chicken and Broccoli without Broccoli". Dining in left a little to be desired, as the atmosphere was a little beaten down, and there was only one waiter taking care of everyone in the place.

“Horrid”
Reviewed 1 April 2010

Terrible food -- tasteless, disgusting odor, much greasier than typical Chinese food. Took too long and the interior of the establishment is poorly designed to accommodate more than two sets of customers that are waiting. Incredibly overpriced for what it was, I will never be returning.
