About Lims Supermarket

Lims Supermarket at night

"Our retail shop was the first Chinese supermarket in Glasgow. It was founded in 1972 and was at that time the hub of a thriving Chinese community. We have owned the shop since 1988. Our dream was to make Chinese Cuisine accessible and affordable to all communities living in Glasgow. My husband is Chinese/Malaysian and I am Scottish, so it was the perfect match for such a task. We now have an International mix of customers from Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Japan and Europe.

Our shop has been featured recently in Come Dine with Me and even the Scottish TV series Taggart in the 80's. We are also recommended by Wagamama and listed in the Hairy Bikers Asian Adventure book.

We love helping and advising our customers in our shop in Glasgow and want to bring this experience to our online customers. We are always there to help and advise, so don't hesitate to ask us about how to use our products if you're not sure. We want to make your shopping experience easy, hassle free and enjoyable."
