My husband and I were traveling through Northern California and stopped at Mings for dinner. We were greeted by the owner and asked if we wanted to try the buffet so we decided to give it a shot. We were happily surprised! There was a variety of hot, freshly-prepared dishes with an assortment of our favorites including garlic shrimp with... More

Wonderful service. The food came out quick, fresh, and plenty of it. Staff is attentive. Don't be turned off by the older decor- the food is worth it.

Families eating supper here, people coming for takeout, place full and bustling. Delicious little buffet, wonderful long menu. I would stop here just for the restaurant! And reasonable prices, too. Fabulous.

I started to take my parents to Ming's, since we were already shopping in Yreka and ready for lunch. I had been here once with my son, and it was okay...not great, but had a fairly decent lunch buffet. Then I had lunch at Ming's a few months later with my sister, and it wasn't nearly as good. I should've... More

Unfortunately Ming's is the only choice in Yreka if you want Chinese food. This restaurant is inconsistent on the quality of the food. I don't think they have a steady cook. It is a typical Chinese restaurant as far as decor. The wait staff is greets you and seats you they are not really friendly. The menu has a large... More

The worst Chinese food I've ever had. I had the twice cooked pork, my husband had beef with Chinese vegetables, hardly any meat, and it had a weird taste. Will not be going back

The owners used to have two Chinese restaurants in town. The other closed due to a fire. They should have moved the chef to this location. The service is good. If you want Chinese, this is a good place.

I had an unpleasant time here a year ago, when a waitress chased us down the street claiming we had not paid. Since then it has been hard for me to want to come back... but since their food is SOOOO good, I could not resist. I have noticed the owner and waitresses have really gone out of their way... More

We are locals who dine here occasionally with friends. The owner and his family are lovely people and the service is very good. The prices are quite reasonable and you certainly get your money's worth as far as portions are concerned. We usually get the fried tofu and vegetable lo mein which are tasty but admittedly I've had better. I'm... More

We had dinner at Ming's during our stay in Yreka. It's the only Chinese restaurant in town and the food was good, portions large and prices very reasonable. Our young waiter was very helpful and gave us good advice as to the size of the portions. Yes, it's not SF Chinatown food, but in my opinion a good choice in... More
