Have been to Gim Ling chinese restaurant on 3 different occasions in the past month. We will never be ordering from Gim Ling ever again. We went in tonight (on our third experience here), we called at 6:04 PM, to place the order, on previous occasions the wait has been very long due to the popularity of the place (they... More

Wow the prior owners food was amazing now it is terrible. I had to spit my first bite of chicken into a napkin and leave the entire plate. It had a terrible aftertaste and texture which is a shame the table settings are beautiful and the service is OK to rude. Wait until you try to re-order a refill on... More

better ambiance than your typical Chinese restaurant while prices are still reasonable-gave it 4 rather than 5 stars because wait staff could be friendlier-still recommend for a facier dining spot while still a good value for those budget conscious.

Nasty owner, very rude!! They just want your money customer service is terrible!! Was served undercooked chicken then was overcharged for our meal so they can make the difference for returning a meal... Clean atmosphere but terrible toward customers

I've been eating at this restaurant for several years. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. You can order anything from traditional Chinese food like - Chop Suey to something more unique like Lobster Kow. If you're in the mood for Chinese, I highly recommend you try Gim Ling.

We get Gim Lings to-go when we are in town. The restaurant is very nice, and the food is great. Family-style entrees, so you are definitely going to have leftovers. My only "ugh" is that they charged us $1 for a little container of hot mustard.

I am not a big fan of Chinese cuisine but I occasionally give in to my husband who loves it. That said, the food at Gim Ling is outstanding. My favorite item at this restaurant? They serve tall, fluffy, with just a hint of sweet, dinner rolls with their entrees. I would eat a hundred of them if I could.... More

Clean and pretty prompt service. Only disappointment is that the last time I was there, I wanted ribs, but was told they were out. So on our last trip, I asked again because they were on the menu. Found out they didn't offer them anymore. They could've simply put a piece of tape over those two options on the menu.... More

Clean, nice decor, great options. Will not sit down toe eat chinese anywhere else because the atmosphere here is the best. Try the Hawaiian Spring Rolls when in season for a sweet treat. Also love the tea and the pineapple orange ice cream.

Gim ling is a hidden "gem". Every dish has been nothing less than superb. Great presentation and ambiance. It is nothing short of amazing what they have done with the space. I would like to see them with a stand alone restaurant with even more space.
