My family and friends have ordered from Linn Chau many times but for the past while it has changed. Especially this last time. The sweet and sour chicken did not seem like chicken at all. It was so hard and rubbery I could hardly get my fork through it. I took a look at it through the batter and it... More

After waiting an additional hour after being told it would take approximately one hour me and my mom picked up the food for the whole family visiting from out of town. While paying the girl informed me that my order would be more expensive than usual because they accidentally added an extra sauce that I didn't order and that would... More

This is one of the best chinese food restaurants in Saint John for me. Combos are very large and not that expensive you definitely get what you pay for. No parking though but you can just park in the church parking lot beside it because there is normally no one parked there when there is nothing going on there

After reading all the poor reviews we still wanted to try it, since there was a few good reviews ,well the poor reviews win! the rice, chicken balls are standard, as other reviewers have said vegetable dishes, garlic pork ,sauce is bland and terrible tasting, we did not feel well soon after eating. It's probably ok if you just like... More

Let's be realistic here. The place really isn't much to look at or "dine-in ability". The food however, is unbelievably good! We ordered a #4, two 5b's a 6 and and 8. They said it'd be about 30 minutes. Was ready on-time and PIPING hot. I couldn't believe how busy the phone was. Took me less than three minutes to... More

My grandmother used to eat at Linn Chau's all the time and claimed it was the best. In the past 2 years I have had more bad experiences than good. The rice was extremely dry and so were the Lo Mein noodles. The veggies are mushy and overall the food was not fresh, and they don't listen. I specifically asked... More

This restaurant not only serves the worst food ever, it has the worst service and it's incredibly over priced. If you complain, you are basically told it's your fault the food was bad. If I were you, I would avoid this place like the plague.
