Great service, fun atmosphere, tasty food. Mings has it all! Can't tell if it is the shirts bar TV, or the 90s music, out the combination of all of it, but this fun place had me coming back week after week for half Price Wednesdays!

People often forget about this staple little gem. Great food, fantastic Martinis! So reasonably priced. Great place to connect and catch up over a few cocktails and people watch from the patio.

Stopped in for a quick pint and a small bite. We had the calamari and it was very good. The service was friendly and professional. I would stop at this restaurant again!

like the title says.... if you have a group of 8 or more ensure you check the bill, in fine print under gst there is a charge 'grat' which was adding 18% (mind you, 2 in our party only stopped for 1 drink each and then left leaving the rest of us with the mandatory tip added) when handed the...

I expected to have a few cocktails and then head out for dinner but she was starving so we ordered some food to share. We were pleasantly surprised with just how good it was! The atmosphere is comfortable and... More

I love this place for drinks. Some of the food is great including the Veggie Ali, the Shining Path pizza and the Four Cheese pizza.

7 of us went for dinner and drinks on a Friday night. We were pleasantly surprised with the food - I had the ginger beef (excellent) and very good veggie burger (yes, I'm a bit of a walking contradiction... I'm trying to eat less red meat, LOL). Oh - the chocolate martini (I can't remember the name) was not good... More

The decor is over the top with red & black throughout but it totally works. It feels like you're in some pimped out secret bunker. The cocktail menu is extensive with creative names of politicians thoughtfully corresponding with the ingredients. The food, OMG, the food. Where to begin? Spinach dip was the best I've ever had (and I've had many)... More
