Stopped for supper after an afternoon of hiking. Hungry. Good, large selection of entrees. Very generous portions. Delicious. Had not expected such good oriental food on the coast of Maine. Had beef and pork with rice, egg rolls, and wanton soup. All very good.

We ate here one evening during a week long stay in coastal Maine. We had been eating a lot of lobster, and needed a break. (You don't hear that very often, do you?) Ming's Garden serves very generous portions, and the food is well-prepared. If you like spicy food, you might want to make that clear - the restaurant assume... More

Best Chinese food in the area with very friendly helpful staff. The parking lot may sometimes be a challenge but the option to eat in or take out makes it nice if you want to grab a bite when heading somewhere.

I eat here very often and everything I have tried was very good. My personal favorites are Mings Soup and the any of the four ginger dishes on the menu. I am diabetic so I do not do the usual sweet and sours or the high carb dishes but members of my family do and they love to come here... More

The place was nice inside and out but the food was average at best. There was barely any rice in my plate. Gave us no plates or forks with our order.

Not sure if the food is made fresh - tastes like it was all previously frozen. I do know the college kids like it

Good little spot to go to for chinese. Sometimes you have to settle when in a small town, but not here. Food is always fresh and good tasting. I always order more than I can eat and have leftovers for a couple of days.

I have had a lot of chinese food in my life but I consider this some of the best out there. I tend to get a #20 but have had other things too. Good food for a reasonable cost.

3+ years ago I had a decent meal there, ever since then I go back occasionally in hopes to have something decent, not! It's just gooey tasteless with some dried out fried rice that you have to search through to find anything else but rice in it. Not worth it, no more.

not good. I have been there at least three times and every time I got rice that was dried out, as it was sitting for a long time. Food again was only so so.
