Had hot and sour soup which was tasty and spicy and the noodles with beef also very good. It was nice surprise to have good Chinese food in a small town like this.

We went to dinner late and Ming Garden happily was still open and available for a table. We had a great meal, I highly recommend the Ma Po Eggplant if you like sichuan pepper (nice and spicy). The staff were busy so not always available for us to order drinks from, but we had a lovely meal.

The restaurant was empty when we visited, so there was little atmosphere. The food was okay but nothing to write home about. The service was friendly but a little slow considering the lack of customers.

Our party of 4 was well satisfied with the selection and tastiness of our meals...we got there early right after 5PM and glad we did as the tour buses started rolling in by 6PM. Service was efficient. Most of the resturant reviews were ll over the map, but we were very pleased with our choice

We were surprised at the quality of the food, which was exceptionally good. Fried squid divine. Duck and vegetables excellent. Sizzling seafood has enormous mussels, scallops, and wonderful shrimp, oysters, fish, & vegetables. Good value, too!

This was recommended by some local people. It is a large restaurant. The staff were efficient and food tasty. We chose the buffet meal at $32pp and there was plenty of it!

We had the set menu. While the portions were ample, the quality was very ordinary. Very little chicken or corn in the advertised "Chicken & Sweet corn" soup. Everything else pretty oily and tasteless.
