Two of us ordered one of the banquets and our friend had soup and the beef curry. All the food was very well cooked with none of the stodginess often associated with Chinese food. We particularly enjoyed the crispy aromatic duck and the sizzling beef. The wine choice was pretty good as well. The service was friendly and efficient. Throughly... More

I just like to say Lings on Kings is an absolutely stunning Chinese we've been going there for 17 years and the standard of the food is always high the ingredients are always fresh and Ling herself is happy to help in any way she can an even cook bespoke dishes for ourselves.

The food and service was excellent as always. Ling and her team never fail to deliver the best. We particularly enjoy the cold hors d'oeuvre's and salt & pepper ribs, they are the best we've ever tasted!!! Well done Ling!! Really recommend this restaurant.

We visited just after opening on a Wednesday evening after work, so were their only diners. This did not take away from the lovely warm ambience, or the truly wonderful waitress! The food was really lovely and we would definitely return for another meal.

I advise everyone to avoid ever ordering a take away from this establishment. What we received was cold, greasy and tasteless. When we will honed up to register our complaint, the female member of staff told us 'we never have problems' and put the phone down on us. Tried ringing back, but the same thing happened. £33 for a meal... More
