Best Chinese restaurant in Edmonton! Amy is a wonderful host and all of the staff here are so kind and caring. Food is beyond amazing, consistently great every time I’ve been here. I’ve recommended several people to come here and they have never been disappointed.

I’ve been to the Lingnan a number of times, always as part of a family celebration. There are a couple reasons for the choice: amazing food and outstanding service. Both are stellar and have been every time I’ve gone.

The size of our group changes but on average there are at least 8 to 10 of us; there hasn’t ever been an issue with the restaurant. The staff handles everything with professionalism and friendliness and we always leave feeling like we are valued customers. We also leave extremely satisfied food-wise. A couple members of the family are vegetarian and there is a good selection of menu options. Yesterday, one of the dishes they chose was the eggplant dish, which earned rave reviews.

When it comes to Chinese food, and an exemplary dining experience, the Lingnan is always our first choice

Customer Reviews 

Check out what makes them so beloved by customers:

When I walked in, I was welcomed by the owner Miranda Lau. She was kind and was so inviting. Today was my first visit. She cane to my table, said hi and asked if she can help by making a recommendation. She recommended the beef sirloin with cashews and steamed rice. I was blown away with the burst of flavours. It’s enough food to serve 3+ people but I wanted to eat it all myself as the flavours were so awesome! I got to meet the head chef and the waiter Victor was awesome too. If you haven’t been here before, go! After I was done eating Miranda and I chatted for a good 10-15 min. I could tell she loves what she does. When you go, you have to try what I had… I will be back for more! 🙂 Thank you to all the staff who made me feel so welcomed and appreciated as a customer. I haven’t experienced that in a long time in a restaurant. Thanks again!

Good food, good service, friendly staff. Interesting ordering service. The staff walk table to table with food carts very interesting indeed! 3.5/5 stars because numerous times they missed our table on last visit by not bringing the food cart over. ***The food is delicious!***

Seating is very important here. Yesterday when I went with my father, they missed us numerous times by just not coming to our table.

The first two times I went it was a wonderful experience, being seated along the wall they had to walk by, yesterday seated by the front window they missed us with at least 4 carts, I sat waiting for food which was disappointing. If you go, definitely sit in the main two areas or you will get passed by and have to wave over service. I won’t sit there again for sure!

Will I be back?

Without a doubt! Food is fantastic, usually fast and friendly staff make it a nice experience!

Well worth the trip! The portions are large  and price are low. They say that the food is made fresh and you can really tell that it is. The veggies have a nice crunch to them but everything has great flavor. My husband and I ordered the dinner for 2 and it’s more like a dinner for 3-4(you get 3 dishes with this) We also ordered the hot and sour soup it gave us the flavors we were hoping for.

Take a look at what people are saying about their service:

This place is superb. First time here and I’m hooked. Staff here are so wonderful and did a great job serving us.

The interior was clean and decorated nicely and well maintained. I couldn’t help but feel so welcomed and comfortable.

The food was delicious and so well presented. Typical Chinese restaurants in Edmonton just throw you food on a plate and off it goes to the table. Here, every dish had a personal touch. It was so tough to decide on the highlight of the night as everything was perfectly executed but I would have to say a tie on the effort to make each dish a delight and the welcoming environment inside. This place reminded me of Hong Kong with its authentic Chinese dishes but better. I didn’t try any of the North American style Chinese dishes here but I’m certain it is delicious as well. Would recommend this place 100% and plan to come back here regularly.

—Adam, Google Reviews

The best Chinese food in Edmonton. Whether ordering from the regular menu or the transitional Chinese menu, everything is probably the best version of each dish I’ve ever tasted. The owner is incredibly friendly and the portions are generous (the Dinner for Two is probably enough to feed a family of four).
