  • Was highly recommended by a friend of mine whose family are regulars at Kimling. She catered from Kimling for her son's first birthday party and I was instantly addicted to Kimling's food when I had it at the party. I went last friday with a group of 8 to satisfy my cravings. My friend told me to look for Suzie who is the owner. She is such a friendly lady and made us feel welcomed. She also suggested all the dishes we ordered. They were all delicious. My kids made me order the appetizer called Pepper Chicken thrice because they really enjoyed it! I even ordered the Pepper Chicken, Hakka Noodles and Hot Garlic Chicken to go because they were so good. I will definitely be back and will recommend more friends and family to this little gem in Scarborough.

  • Order: Pepper Chicken, Sweet Corn Soup, Hot Garlic Chicken, Hakka Noodles, Szechuan Fish, Crispy Beef and Manchurian Fried Rice

  • For those of you who said the food here isn'y greasy, you're use to eating very greasy food on a regular basis . It IS greasy and it's not very good oil. I felt so sick after having it. There wasn't enough flavour but then I also think I'm too picky because my sister really enjoyed the chow-men we ordered. The chicken was over fried and not as spicy as I had thought considering it was chicken chilli. I haven't had good hakka chinese in Toronto anywhere!

  • Order: chicken chow-men, chicken chilli dry, egg fried rice

  • This is by far the best Hakka food I have had in the east end of TO, I am so glad I was introduced to it and Sue the owner is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Food is always made quickly and the staff is always very friendly.

    I visit Kimling as often as twice a week and my office is not that close, I pass several other restaurants on my way to it.

  • Order: Chilli Chicken, crispy beef, Manchurian beef/chicken

  • Excellent food, service and recommendations provided by the restaurant.

    Food is delicious, not greasy and a wide range of choices, partcularly in the seafood category which I absolutely love.

    You can get a great lunch at a fantastic price.

    It is located in a small strip plaza, but do not be put off by the location or the outside appearance.

  • Order: Chilli Fish, Crab Meat Corn Soup, Shrimp Fried Rice

  • I am vegetarian and I always order the manchu veg balls and mix veg fried rice. I have no idea what Sona was talking about. The manchu balls are deep fried so its very crispy and I like the sauce that it comes in. Mouthwatering...The restaurant is clean, inviting and has a nice atmosphere. The service is quick and the food always comes out fast and hot. I was just there yesterday.

  • Order: veg pakoras, manchu veg balls, mix veg fried rice and veg hakka chow mein

  • After today's visit, id say i will never ever go back to Kimling. Ia m a regular customer as I work around the corner. I had ordered Manchurian Vege balls and when i tried to cut the Manchurian balls in half to eat they were hard rock. At one point I almost got it outta my plate. I called the lady (think she's the owner ot manager) who stands by the counter and told her what the problem was and she was very rude and started arguing with me that this has never happened and that is not posssible. I even tried using my fork to half the manchurian balls but still she kept on arguing with me. I was gonna order something else instead but the attitude i got from her was unbelievable and she forced me to eat that, pack that and take it home. Why should i do that? Anyways! in all... She made me pay for the food and didn't even apologize. No wonder not many ppl return back to this restaurant. Food is awful and most importantly the service is awful! They basically forced me to pay. Loosers

  • Order: Manchurian Vegetable balls

  • This is the best kind of chinese food ever. All of the dishes are delicious and unique. Pepper chicken and crispy ginger beef are all time favourites with all our family and friends. The service is always prompt and friendly, the portions so generous we almost always take some home for lunch the next day!
    We've tried other hakka chinese restaurants, but enjoyed none of them as much as Kimling

  • Order: crispy ginger beef, pepper chicken, hakka chow mein, shrimp pakora, lemon fish

    The fish in black bean sauce is awesome, especially if you add extra chilis.
    The won tons in the soup seemed a bit overcooked.
