[ADVERT]Ginling has been in Adelaide's inner southern suburbs for decades and never fails to provide delicious meals that are good value. The decor is a little out of date but it is well worth a visit.

Tonight my partner and I enjoyed:

Chilli Prawns ($17.00), and

Lemon Chicken ($13.30)

Freshly steamed rice was approximately $5 for two people.

The prawns were fresh and the sauce was spicy but not overpowering. We enjoy the lemon chicken when looking for a dish that's a bit sweeter and the batter is super light, crispy, and not oily. Both dishes were large and we could have easily shared this with a third person.

My favourite meals from Ginling are the Peking Duck and their deep fried ice-cream which is arguably the BEST in Adelaide.

This restaurant is popular with the locals so ensure you make a booking if planning to visit on a Friday or Saturday night, or Saturday lunch time.

Dine in and Take Away available.

I went here for lunch with some Chinese friends a few days ago. We had 9 dishes shared between us and they were all very good. Not sure which was my favourite - the roast duck, the crispy chicken or the sizzling prawns.

There were two year old children with us and it was a comfortable place to go with them. Some places aren't very tolerant of children.

My favourite at Ginling is their roast duck (the most light crispiest skin), water spinach fried Malaysian style with sambal, duck with jelly fish salad and I always have combination flat rice noodles for lunch. You should try flat rice noodles with beef and egg sauce (off the menu) Yum
