If you feel like a buffet this will fill the bill. Good Cocktails so if you like a Mai Tai with your Chinese Dinner, this is a good place for you.

We went there based on friends' recommendation. Also we got a potstickers appetizer ($10 value) free with our AXXESS card. We had meigugaipan chcicken, Szechuan pork, and fried rice. All tasted very fresh and flavorful.

Do not waste your time or money! Ming Dynasty has poor food quality, high prices and a very small selection at their over-priced buffet!

I'm not sure what happened. This place used to be really good. We ate there tonight and let's just on believably horrible. Their potstickers are like shoe leather. General Tsao is turning over in his grave. This was my last visit to Ming Dynasty.

Had noticed this restaurant on several previous visits to the Santa Barbara area. Decided to give it a try this time. We were greeted by friendly staff at the door and promptly seated. We chose to do the buffet rather than ordering from the menu....More
