We have been coming here for over a decade. I can't dispute the quality of their food, it's one of the best in Darwin. have however final had enough of their terrible customer service! The wait times are at best, well under estimated. constantly have...had over 20 mins delays from time of expected pick up. Tonight had to wait an hour! This is taking the absolute mickey! l'm used to NT time but you mob have pushed it to far!More

Hidden away in a local shopping centre near Nightcliff a small traditional Aussie Chinese restaurant .Laminex tables,paper nakins small area for dining in. Huge take away business The big surprise was the food,Freshly cooked with locally sourced ingredients (one of the best Combination omelettes I...have eaten any where ) Huge servings,hot and steaming to the table. BYO and plenty of Ice for your wine (a NT thing ,us southerners can't understand putting Ice in the wine ) The staff were very helpful and attentive and the price was very reasonable.More

Great food and great service. Hingston's is an institution here in Anula - Darwin. Fabulous, tasty and well priced meals. You can dine in or take away. Hingston himself is a wonderful character who loves to chat. Highly recommended.

When ordering food for delivery, they quoted and confirmed a price. When they arrived, they tried to charge double. We had to turn them down. They damaged our party dinner. Very dishonest. Be careful.

Fresh fast takeaway. Fried rice was yum. Lemon Chicken tasted good but just a little dry. Mongolian Lamb was lovely but could have been a little spicier. Overall good food for fair price.

Tried this Restaurant out for the first time on Valentines Day, after others recommended to me. I had being going past for a couple of years, wish I hadn't. From the exterior it appears to be unassuming. Step inside to a small cozy space, though...seating for approx. 30 people across various configurations of tables. Be sure to book a table a busy night. A steady stream of people Coe in to collect their orders takeaway the whole time I was there, proof that others are aware of the quality Chinese food. We ordered 3 dishes including combination fried rice, this was sufficient s all meals were generous portions & reasonably priced. Service was no fuss & efficient. I will go back again, recommend others in the area to try this restaurant.More
