I've been wanting to give a good review for this restaurant for a long time, but I always ended up lost for words. This place have been our favorite Chinese comfort food for 4yrs and up to date. They consistently serving up tasty food every time we've been coming here. Their portions for every menu are enormous, always served-up hot, and is one of the best food values in the area. Their menu offers a wide range of Chinese Cuisines.

I believe this restaurant have been here for a long time, and have been in a successful business far long. Though the place looks kinda shabby, don't be fooled by its not so good interior. The food is amazing for the price and a must-visit for pretty authentic Chinese food. The restaurant is air-conditioned and also have electric fans for an added cool temperature. They also have large round tables upstairs that can cater small or large group of costumers. There are comfort rooms in the resto and does have more available comfort room at the second floor. Ive always seen this place really crowded but we still manage to line up because their food are worth the wait. If you are in real hurry to satisfy your hungry stomach. They have their other branch at E.Rod Avenue just near this place. Parking space here is kinda limited.

What our usual favorite order here is their Beef Broccoli Flower (Php.230), Taosi Fish Fillet (Php.210), Pork Siomai (Php.85) and Yang Chow Fried Rice (Php.100).

They always serve a complimentary hot tea while waiting for our orders to be serve. For their Beef Broccoli the meat is juicy and tender and broccoli was cooked perfectly, soft outside and firm inside. I love the outer layer of the meat soaks up the sauce and makes very flavorful. The sauce had a good balance between soy sauce and oyster sauce. Taosi Fish Fillet is deep fried breaded fish fillet and gives you a crunch as you take a bite. The sauce is so flavorful, the distinct taste of black bean sauce adds a kick mix. Their Siomai are compact with pork and shrimp, thats best to deep in with chili soy sauce and calamansi. Their Yang Chow is the best! One word "FULL HOUSE". Rich in green peas, chunk of pork and small shrimps. Their small size serving for this is good for three!!

Overall the food was good! It came in pretty large portions, there was a lot that we packed for home. Great quality food for a great price!

They improved on many things during this last two visits we had like having a faster service even on a busy Lunchtime. Table Menu, glass of water, plates and hot tea in a cup are immediately served upon sitting. 128525

Better service and constant delicious affordable chinese food is what we came back here for. 128077

25th Review!
And I'm back to my fave Chinese food place!!!! And undeniably di kami nagsasawa ng hubby ko! We requested for the thinnest Noodle Feast. PANALO KA DITO!!!

We loved it! all over again. Ordered Large Yang Chow too! With free soup, and hot tea as always. The service is getting better. 128077🏻 500 pesos food good for four to five!!!

This is the first time I included the chili sauce in my pictures. This is for us, on eof the best we had!

After ace water spa, we went to Lam Tin. Boyfriend's been saying how much he likes the place and the food. We had nido soup, fried canton, buttered chicken, and yang chow rice. The nido soup has meat bigger compred to others. I was surprised by it. It was also soft and not hard, which was good with the soup. The chicken was average for me. Nothing special. No oomph flavor. The noodles, was served so big our table occupied about 1/3 or half of it. The taste was not something that wowed me. Though the idea of a giant fried canton and then poured by sauce that would make it softer was amusing.

The taste was average, or at least of what we ordered. Seeing how many people dine, despite already going there at an afternoon, it means food is good. However, I am yet to find a reason what makes people come back for it. For now, my rate will just be 3. But I am willing to give this place another chance.

23rd! 9786

I always make it a point I get to have Lam Tin's food picture beautiful. Here, they always look delicious effortlessly by the way, and it does taste delicious too! This is my first time to try the Pancit Canton. A huge plate full of Pansit for only 200!?!? Pang blow out na sa barkada! 128077128077128077

And yeah, I did gave my friend a treat, but when she craved for more, nabitin kasi sa Yang Chow, Pansit na lang daw, so when it arrived a little later, we (with hubby) were all too full to take even a little anymore. So, take home ang peg! 9786

As usual, We caught the place fully packed again during dinner time on a weekday. We waited for our turn to be seated (as we're used to falling in line) and ordered our favorite Yang chow and Beef Brisket Noodle soup and Black Gulaman and complimentary Hot tea. Imagine how much Beef meat this bowl soup has that we need not to order ulam for the Fried rice! 128077

Kasi hubby and I loved eating here. Sometimes Dimsum plus fried rice, or Noodle Feast as viand with Yang chow as always. 128525
There's never a moment that we didn't enjoy the food nor did disappoint us. Promise, if there's one, it might be too minimal mistake for us to forget it. Besides, the owner and his sons were always there day or night serving the customers. Good job! 9996🏽️

When in doubt, Lam Tin is the place to go. We just love their pancit canton, yang chow, Lo Han Chay and Lam Tin fried chicken. You could never go wrong with those orders.

It's my first time to eat in Lam Tin with my sister one hungry night last week. We decided to go there because a lot of my friends have good feedback on their cheap yet yummy Chinese food. Been wanting to try this but again, just like ALL (caps for emphasis that they're too many) the others, I just had no luck of squeezing it in my schedule 128514128514. Or just no chance. Also, Banawe is not a very accessible place for me... and I find it too busy a place to go hurdling in. 128513

Place was swarmed with a lot of people the moment we entered. We were not entertained because all servers were too busy (even the owners were taking orders) so I had to approach one of their guards if we had to wait to be seated. Yes we did need to. We were fourth in the line. I had no problem with the lack of accommodation because I am used to Chinese restaurants both legit and not 128514128514that's just how they roll128517128517 anyways, we were seated after 10 minutes so not too long naman.

The food which we had high hopes on disappointed us. 128531 but I think it only had something to do with the set we ordered. looks like we ordered the wrong stuff...

Siomai was big in terms of serving but it lacked taste and tough to chew. Wai Ying's better with similar prices imo.

Hakaw was also big but the wrapper was too thick and floury. The shrimps inside tasted okay though...a bit sweet and big pieces were there..

Raddish cake please skip this. It was served not too hot anymore and without the dip (hoisin or ketchup?) it should come with. We had to request for it a few times before it arrived. The raddish cake lacked taste and was overpowered by flour/gawgaw. 128557 Ackkkkk.

Beef wonton noodle soup. Big no no for arriving not hot anymore. It lacked taste so we had to add some hot sauce / soy sauce.. Overall it was disappointing 128531

There goes my first Lam Tin experience. I am giving it another chance soon. We may have ordered the wrong types of food but I think dimsum is something Chinese restaus give emphasis and bank on.... What happened??? Was it a bad batch? Hmmmm. 128542

Skipping their dimsum next time 128517 main dishes might be their trophy. will visit again.

This time hubby and I had Almond jelly for dessert, walang pagkakaiba sa ibang mahal na Resto! 10084

They do serve rice meals. Very affordable 115 above. Serving is a lot. I like tgeir sweet and sour fish fillet. Kakaiba ang pagka s&s niya. I think it's more of the sour note. The sweetness probbly came from the rich caramelized onions that also gives the zing in the end.
Their white chicken is equivalent to hainanese chicken.
Their bean curd fish has same style with the fish of my s&s.
Quite jampacked even at a thursday night. But! They serve really fast so our stomachs were immediately filled.

You can find one of the best white chicken rice topped with lots and lots of ginger here! I was craving for this weeks ago so I decided to eat here, its an old fashion Chinese restaurant with all kinds of Chinese food you like. From congee, noodles, rice toppings, dimsum, etc. but don't forget this best seller!

My colleagues would always rave about how cheap yet delicious their dishes are. I have always been so curious that's why when a third colleague mentioned Lam Tin to me, I knew I had to try it for myself.

I brought my family here on a Sunday night and the place was ridiculously packed. We attended mass first and went back to see if it was already our turn. Luckily, our table was ready but the queue was still long.

The place is just small and to be honest, not so nice if you're looking for ambiance. It's pretty straightforward with just plastic tables, monobloc chairs, aircondition units.

We started our meal with their Corn Soup (P140) and it was okay. Just the usual corn soup you get in Chinese restaurants without the crab bits. We ordered their medium-sized Yang Chow Fried Rice (P190) and it surprisingly served 6 of us. Huge serving! It was the first time we've encountered Sweet and Sour Shrimp (P220) so we tried it too. We got coated plump shrimps with the flavorful sweet and sour sauce. We also ordered Chopseuy which we thought was a little bland. On the other hand, we loved their Salt and Pepper Squid (P200) and Lumpiang Shanghai. Service was fast despite the volume of people coming in.

It you're looking for cheap but delicious Chinese food, then you should definitely try Lam Tin. You'll make your tummy happy without hurting your pocket.

Fried Rice with Chicken and Salted fish is my default order whenever I visit this place. My sister and I love the spicy pork spareribs which I bathe in dark vinegar. Lo Han Chay veggies, Asaso with atchara, taosi fish fillet are some of our favorites. Short order meals are priced between 180 to 210. A medium order of freid rice goes for 200, which can serve up to 5 tummies. Like most chinese restos, this one gets busy during lunch and dinner hours and sometimes the "take out" service can be very slow. It's a good thing that they offer delivery which comes in handy for condo dwellers like me in the vicinity. 128522128522128522

20th Review!!!127942
Oh, i waited like forever to be back here! 128531
It's been 6months and i really really miss the best Chinese food here!!! As usual, punong puno kahit 2pm na past lunch time.

Couldn't be any happier to taste their food again. I know it tastes as good and would definitely rate 5 stars for me!

Ordered this Medium Yang Chow for 190 pesos good for three but there were only two of us and we finished them all paired with this Spicy Ribs for 210 pesos now (used to be 200). Sooo delicious! I even tried cooking Yang chow at home, haha di ko magaya yung lasa ang layo....128521
Oh i hardly wish you'd have another branch here in Kamias QC. 128540
