I want to review this place for a long time. The Lingnan is practically an institution in Edmonton. I have fond memories of this restaurant - it was one of my Grandfather's favourite spots - he would take us here when he visited - that was in the 70's and I was a kid. Saturday April 8, 2017 attended with... More

Excellent dinner with long time friends at Lingnan. Our friends had not been there for some time but were impressed by the continued good quality food and great service. Our friends would definitely come back to this restaurant

Great tasting traditional Chinese food. Service is second to none and the staff were friendly. Would recommend this restaurant and we will be returning. We had the deluxe dinner for two, had our fill and leftovers to take home.

This extremely fun and friendly Western-Style Chinese Restaurant is both cool in its decor and service, and awesome in its food. The food is delicious, and the service is fun! The staff are really friendly and have a great sense of humour! The site is decorated in a very kitsch Chinese imperial style which just adds to the experience.

During a recent visit to China all I could think about was getting home and going to either the Lingnan or Chicken for Lunch (CFL). Maybe it is what I am used to, or maybe it is because I am only partly Asian. Caucasian. We had Beijing (Peking) Duck in Beijing. It was tasty and a good experience, but I... More

We tried this place based on reviews and location of being close to downtown Edmonton (not sure who's leaving these reviews b/c the food was not great at all - not even close). Upon arrival, I was impressed by the decor, it's quite nicely decorated in authentic looking Chinese decor from floor to ceiling and the servers wear nice Chinese... More

My boyfriend and I spent 1 night in Edmonton and our itinerary only consisted of 2 things: West Edmonton Mall and dinner at Lingnan Chinese Restaurant. We watched the reality show Quon Dynasty in Toronto and hoped to see the family in person. We were fortunate enough that Kinman (the father) was still at the restaurant and graciously came out...

We were a party of 4 adults and 4 kids. And all of us enjoyed every bite we had ordered! Wonderful friendly service, great atmosphere and - again - fantastic food! If you are in Edmonton and you like Chinese cuisine - look no further. But make sure you reserve a table ... it's with it!
