Lingnan Restaurant Ltd10582 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 2W1
The Quon family opened the Lingnan in its original location in 1947, then moved to the current location in 1963. Decades later, the restaurant remains one of the most popular places in the city to enjoy Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine. Popular dishes include Mandarin beef, black bean chicken and crispy nest, which comes with your choice of beef, chicken or shrimp and scallops. Delivery can take anywhere between 60 to 90 minutes during the week, and up to two hours on weekends, so plan accordingly.
This restaurant, run by the Quon family, has two big claims to fame: The family and the restaurant were the subject of an award-winning documentary in 2011, and it’s one of Edmonton’s oldest restaurants. The original location opened in 1947, with the restaurant moving to its current spot in 1963. Their crispy nest with chicken is one of their most popular dishes but the restaurant itself is beloved by Edmontonians.
This family-run dynasty serves up award-winning Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine in a relaxed environment. It’s been a staple in the Edmonton dining scene since it opened in 1947, and remains relevant today. There was even a reality TV show following the lives of the owners, the Quon family. Customers keep coming back for dishes like the lemon chicken canton, Cantonese chow mein, ginger beef and the special fried rice. To get a good assortment of dishes, try one of the combination plates.
