This restaurant is consistently good and we have been going there for about 12 years. The set menus are very good value and also the baked fish is excellent. Lovely people here.

We don't like sweet and sour pork - we love it!!! Sadly this did not even feature on our scale of enjoyment! Beautifully appointed restaurant but the food has a long way to go!!

Great food .. great service. A Chinese family run business and the own is always walking around checking on patrons. Potions are ok depending on the meals but every meal tasted is great. This place never disappoints.

Ming Bow Chinese goes back with my family since my kids were babies. My Son is now 29 and Daughter is 24. Always good food and nice owners and staff. Actually a nice feel about the restaurant to, more casual than fancy interior, but interesting,
