The History of the Lingnan

The Lingnan Restaurant was started in 1947 in Edmonton, Alberta on the corner of 97 street and Jasper Avenue. As Chinese food became more popular in the city the Quon Brothers decided to expand and move into our current location in 1963. The Lingnan restaurant has always had a loyal crowd on clientele because of the excellent food, ambiance and service. Many of our staff members have been with us for over 30 years and continue to work each day with an abundance of energy and pride. Owner, Kinman Quon, has worked at The Lingnan since we was 17 and now continues to run the restaurant with his family. Recently in the last 5 years, eldest Son Miles decided to join in the family business full time and now has taken on majority of the duties and challenges. We are very proud to be able to keep the business within the same family for over 60 years and will continue to do our best with the support of our loyal clientele.

The Quon Dynasty follows a zany and entertaining family of Chinese restaurateurs as they grapple with inter-generational friction and sibling rivalry in their uproarious ongoing quest to build their family business without sacrificing their personal passions.

  • How long should I expect to wait for my delivery order?
    • When you place your order, you will be quoted an approximate time. During the weekday your order should take from 60 to 90min, while on the weekends it could take 2 hours or more.

  • Why does it take so long?
    • Not only do we offer delivery, we also have pick up orders and dining room meals to prepare. On a busy weekend our dining room may have up to 250 guests waiting for their meals all coming out one kitchen.

  • Will my meal be hot if I wait 2 hours for it?
    • We try our very best to package your food in our heat retaining containers and our drivers try their best to get it to your home as quickly as possible but please keep in mind the distance from your home to the restaurant and weather conditions. Please also note that certain items will not retain heat as well as others for example deep fried items vs. stir fried items.

    • We will deliver on orders starting at $30.00 and up within the downtown area. Once you are out of the downtown core we ask for a minimum delivery that could range from $40.00 to $100.00. We sometimes make exceptions if there is more than one order in the area so please call and ask for details.

  • How long should I expect to wait to pick up an order?

  • If I place my order the day before can you guarantee that it will be on time?
    • We will try our best to get your order in the time slot that you had requested. However, please keep in mind that your order is cooked right before it leaves the restaurant to ensure that it is hot making it difficult to guarantee an exact time. We do appreciate your efforts in placing your order ahead of time and will give you first priority.

  • Do you offer delivery for large groups?
    • We do offer delivery for large groups, please call the restaurant directly for more information.

    • Our drivers make a living based on tips so any amount is always appreciated.
