For ease of dining with tots, we opted for takeout. As usual, the food was very good. We tried some dishes that we don't usually try, like pea sprouts with dried scallops and boiled chicken with ginger and onion and they were both delicious and satisfying. In addition, the old regulars like beef and broccoli as well as hong kong-style... More

I had been out of the country for four weeks and I was craving Chinese food; New Lim's did not disappoint. We had seven different dishes; chicken corn soup, honey walnut prawns, deep fried oysters, steamed fish, house special chow mein, and fukien friend rice. They were all delicious and each had a distinctive flavor, exactly what one wants when... More

Have been here twice and the food is amazing. Authentic Chinese food, my guests from oversees thought they were in Hong Kong when eating here. Truly an exceptional restaurant.

We dined here last night and were very pleased, as usual, with our meal. We had the boiled chicken and it was served cold with a nice gravy and onions. The pea sprouts with garlic were tasty, the fukien tofu was rich in meat, mushrooms, and peas, the tomato beef chow mein (Hong Kong-style) was served piping hot, and the... More

I've ordered to go, and I've eaten there. It's probably the best place for Chinese food, a good variety of dishes. Used to take a long time to wait, but it's improved in wait time. Alot of to go orders, which shows a high turnover of dishes.

I have always ordered takeout from this place. Reasonable turnaround time. Don't receive a warm welcome from the woman at the counter, but she does her job. Food is decent. Always more fried rice than I can finish alone. Coming from San Francisco, the food is typical American fare by comparison.

New Lim's is our go-to place for traditional and familiar Chinese food. The Hong Kong style noodles, war won ton soup, deep-fried oysters, honey/walnut prawns, clams in black bean sauce, and many more are reliable satisfying dishes. The service is pretty good, even on busy nights. And they do a booming take-out business.

So tried this restaurant after Hunan. If the two would combine the best of both menus then we would have something. The good: The entrees including the Singapore noodles were good (not great though). The bad: The egg rolls and the potstickers were generic and the singapore noodles came with small bay shrimp

I have been to the New Lim's Restaurant many times over the years. I liked the old Lim's better. This restaurant has slow service and the food is average. I try it every so often, to see if it has improved, it hasn't, I'll try again in the future.

Although New Lim's specializes in seafood, we have always been pleased with their traditional dishes. The food is fresh and prepared to order. The restaurant is almost always busy and they do a large take out business. It is best to phone ahead for take out. Some favorites are: Assorted Seafood in Bird's Nest, Mushu Pork, Dry Sauteed Green Beans... More
