Went for an anniversary meal after it was recommended by a friend, the food was outstanding and the service was top notch, we spent the night talking to the owner Ling. My other half ended up booking for her dad's birthday before we left. Try it you won't be disappointed.

It was the first time that I had visited Lings although my partner had been before. I really enjoyed, not only the food, but the atmosphere, as we were entertained by a tribute group on the spur of the moment who happened to be eating there. We had a banquet and the food was extremely good. I really enjoyed the... More

Went to Kings for Chinese New Year. Ling was very accommodating due to my intolerance of gluten (being a Coeliac sufferer). Soup was excellent, but couldn't have the BBQ spare ribs so Ling made lovely salt and pepper ribs. Crispy duck was worth the wait although I couldn't have the pancakes or hoi sin sauce, once again Ling offered me... More

Went for CNY and as always we had the most amazing time! The food was delicious as per usual and I love the decorations and ambience! But as always Ling was a fantastic host and made us feel like family! Best Chinese restaurant in the North West! Cannot praise it more! You must go and try it for yourself!
