We have ordered for delivery a lot from them. The food is outstanding. You're told 45 minutes and it's NEVER been more than 20 to 25 minutes. Very courteous delivery people

I took my family to this place on a Sunday night. The food was ok, nothing to write home about, and the waitress was just extremely rude. With all the dinning choices in the Bristow/Manassas/Gainesville there's no reason to eat ok food while being treated like garbage.

I was a former fan of this resturant 8 years ago, after they opened. I used to go 2-3 times a month. Yet in the recent few years changes started, and I became slow more disappointed. First portions shrunk, shimp n scallops got smaller, taste of food changed. I stop going there for about 2 years, until tonight. Regretfully I... More

Our 7 year d grand daughter, from Inner Mongolia, chose to celebrate her birthday at Lin's. Delicious. We ordered Crispy Beef, Crispy Chicken, Orange Beef, Sesame Chicken, and Combo Fried Rice. Everything came quickly and hot. Each dish was more delicious than the next. We has ginger tea as well. Well priced. Delicious. Great service.

Heard from several people that this is "the place" to get good Chinese food and they were right. It is much better than my normal "go to" for that type of food. I ordered delivery and even with the delay in getting the food to my house, it was still piping hot and everything tasted great. The egg rolls were... More

I thought all cooks in restaurants had to wear hat or hairnet. Hair found in my food 1/2 way through my dish said it all. The 10% discount given was NOT what I wanted. I simply wanted to inform them of the hair so it will never happen to anyone else!! 90 cents off my meal is not what i... More

Decided to try Lin's take out today since I hadn't brought my lunch to work as usual. A fortuitous state of occurrences -- my order was ready by the time I walked across the parking lot, was well-packaged, correct, with sauces/fork and scrumptious! The Beef Drunken Noodles were just the right amount of spicy, had a rich sauce and extra... More

We have eaten in that famous Beijing duck restaurant near Tiananman Square in Beijing and my wife and I both think the Bistros duck is better. You can get a half order which is enough for two people. The service has always been quick and efficient.
