It was walking distance from our motel so very convenient. Food choice was extensive as is common for Chinese Restaurants, and the food quality was excellent.

We came across this place while looking for somewhere to have dinner. We decided on a banquet and food started coming out straight away. Food was delicious and there was plenty of it too. The atmosphere was relaxed. Staff were great and could not do enough for us. Prices were reasonable. Would definately go back again when we are in... More

We ordered beef & black bean sauce, special fried rice, and bok choy. They used frozen veg in the beef & black bean (yuck); special fried rice was dry and not so special; bok choy was over cooked. Overall unimpressed!

Right next to the Hilton Motel it was so handy to be able to walk out of our room to have a meal without taking the car. The food was superb. We ate there both nights that we were in Port Lincoln

We went to the business notice board and found the details of the Ming Inn and went for tea. The food was really wonderful with the Mongolian lamb amongst the best I had tasted, the service quick and the prices very reasonable, it was just what we wanted.

The food was nice. It was tender and had some lovely flavours. Great fried rice too. The price was also good for a family dinner :)

A few years ago the food here was excellent but on our last two visits earlier this year it was not so good. For some reason they seemed unable to get the sauces in the dishes right. For example the Szechuan had the wrong balance and didn't taste very good.

Bought takeaway from here one night recently. Around $40 for two entrees, two mains, and one large fried rice. I thought it was a fairly good price, although the spring rolls were overpriced. The food was delicious though, and the service quite fast. Also ate in the restaurant a couple of years ago and had no issues with the food... More
