We have been regular customers since moving to Darwin, over 10 years …. Consistently excellent food and decent customer service has kept taking me back to Hingston’s on a regular basis. However, last Saturday, I went there as usual and ordered $100 worth of take away to feed friends who like their soy sauce with cut green chilli to compliment... More

Having eaten at Hingston's for years I would be bold enough to say that they serve the best Chinese food in all of Darwin.

An old but good favorite. Chinese meals are always tasty and original whilst still at a reasonable price. Just like the Chinese restaraunts I grew up with. Simple restaraunt for eat in, small but always full. Great for takeaways. Can't go wrong.

Have been in Darwin for 7 years and have had people give us rave reviews of this Chinese restaurant. However never found ourselves having a meal until recently my wife and I ordered some take away. With nothing short of great excitement we took a selection of items off the menu home only to find that it was essentially inedible.... More

Small restaurant, but great food. Bookings essential as most nights it is full. The salty fish chicken fried rice, sizzling beef & the omelette are amazing.

I have been coming here for years and tonight so disappointed not only in your prices but the quality of food.. Ordered hot & spicey squid, honey king prawns and combination fried rice with a bag of prawn crackers.. Prawn crackers bordering on stale and chewy.. Get better bags to maintain the crunch Hot & spicey squid dry and over... More

Had takeaway and was fast and friendly service. I found the food was a tad too sweet for my pallet..

My brother suggested I get our Chinese for this restaurant. We were visiting from Perth and buying a meal for 6 people. All means were very nice and in fact close to the best we have ever had.

Hi ordered 3 meals for the first time the other day. Heard lots of great things. The food was just way too bland. The mongolian beef tasted like rubber. Sorry had to let people know

Thank somstar
