Want authentic Chinese? Fancy vibrant sauces and fresh veggies? Siracha and other "hip" condiments. Not here. Nope. So, what do you get? My wife's family moved to Redding in the 50's. This was the first place they went to eat at. My own grandparents traveled...More

I've been eating here my whole life, and I absolutely love their food. The egg foo young is the best I've ever had. I wish they'd move to Colorado so I could have it more often.

We have been coming up to Redding at least once a yr in the past few yrs. This time we wanted to try out Lim's. I'm not necessarily a fan of fast food chinese--but I don't have anything against new chinese either. There is nothing...More

This restaurant apparently is an institution in Redding, it is run by the same family in the third generation. I must say we found the food bland and uninspired, and the decor is faded and boring.
