Why would you go to the trouble of having a dinner party at home when you can have a banquet at Lim's. Phil is very helpful in suggesting special dishes and they also have quite a good wine list. The staff are absolutely delightful and certainly make you feel at home.

Have been going here on and off for years and years. Never had a bad meal or experience and the food is really good. I have reacted to some chinese food at other restaurants but they are very considerate at Lims of allergies and no added msg! Always yummy and always friendly with great service. The restaurant is lovely to dine in, great atmosphere.

Went tonight after reading reviews. Fantastic delicious food - best Hokkien Mee we've had - friendly and attentive staff, good prices and generous portions. Whilst paying I mentioned it was our wedding anniversay, straight away a gift wrapped complimentary bottle of sparkling was presented to us to take home. Lim is an exceptional host, taking a special interest in his patrons. Thanks for a great night Lim and staff! We will see you again soon!

I love this place. I've celebrated birthdays and had many meals there. Their food is always amazing and nothing is unappetising. Everyone is helpful and fun and willing to do anything to make your experience better.

Joyful wait staff, excellent food, and a welcoming atmosphere, Lim's is always good for a quick take away or for little celebrations. If you're lucky your evening's experience will be made perfect by a visit to your table from the delightful Mr Lim! The whole menu comes highly recommended. Tip: Be sure to let the friendly staff know if you are celebrating a birthday!

Awesome is the word but that is a little over the top. The food is excellent and it has a very friendly atmosphere and this explains why the regulars keep on coming back. You see familiar faces every time that you go there and the staff seem to know most of their clients.

We decided to go to Lim's this fathers day as we do on many other special occasions. As usual the food and service was excellent. Being regulars at Lim's we decided to try some new items from the menu such as the Singapore Chilli Lamb and Combination Sweet and Sour (meat) which were both delicious. The owner, Mr Lim, is always friendly and personally welcomes all of his guests to the restaurant and will often join them for a complimentary Baileys after the meal. I look forward to returning soon.

What a great family business this is. After going for the first time we were welcomed like long lost friends. The 2nd time we went they remembered us & what we had ordered the last time we were in which was 1 month in time. Since then we are regulars customers & are treated like family. The owners come out to our table & chat for for a time, never too long to be annoying just a enough to add to a great night. Often they give us complimentary drinks or desert, all of which we decline but they insist. Try this restaurant, you will be pleased you did. Food is beautiful in flavor & freshness, but not huge in size. Enjoy, Sheree from Reynella East

We always celebrate our family birthdays at Lims. Over the years Lim and his staff have always provided tasty food and excellent service. The restaurant is always a popular choice when deciding where to go to celebrate a birthday or just a nice evening meal. Dining in, the staff are always friendly and service is punctual. The take-away option is also good value when wanting a night off cooking. I would always reccommend Lims Chinese to anyone...

For a restaurant that serves acceptable Chinese food, it is ridiculously overpriced.

Seff: 7 years, 5 months ago – Link & Share

Stock-standard Chineese restaurant, safe but unexciting. Leans towards the "family restaurant" end of the spectrum with a menu and decor duplicated in so many Chineese restaurants across the country. The service was very good and friendly, however, and I was thrilled to be able to order a Fruit Cup - a drink I haven't had since I was a child in the 70s.

soothepanda: 7 years, 9 months ago – Link & Share

Surprised by the high rating on here. Eaten in the restaurant once and taken away once - all perfectly ok, but just that, ok. This is very standard Chinese fare - nothing special in terms of food quality, flavour, menu selection and not amazing value. Reasonably priced, but not great. I don't not recommend going, but wouldn't highly suggest it to someone. Useful if you want Chinese food close to Jetty Road, but really nothing too special. Not Chinese, but for much better Asian food in central Glenelg, I suggest Tanapa Thai on Jetty Road.
