We ordered take out and we will never go back. The "fried" rice tasted like a mushy white rice coated in a brownish type sauce? What ever it was it didnt taste anything like real fried rice.. My son ordered chicken & broccoli for $9.95 and there was only about a small handful of chicken pieces about the size of... More

I know several people who view the Ming Tree as their "go to place" for Chinese food. We have a place in Knoxville that I like slightly better, but I don't hesitate to eat here when I am in the Maryville/Alcoa area. Pretty good hot and sour soup and my wife enjoys their fried rice. Service is usually quick and... More

Stopped for a quick bite after flying into Knoxville. The service was great and the staff was very attentive. The food was average - the egg rolls were average and bland, as was the shrimp chow mein. The hot and sour soup was great, however.

I've been a loyal Ming Tree customer for over 20 years. Their food is consistently tasty - some dishes are obviously better than others. I'm not really a fan of their Thai cuisine, but their Chinese menu is top notch. My faves have always been the MingTree Fried Rice, The Kung Pao Beef (I order it extra, extra spicy), The... More

We eat here almost every Sunday and enjoy it very much. They have the best Hot and Sour soup we have ever tasted. I love the Sesame Chicken but also many other dishes. Servings are generous and service is very good. Be sure to give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

This is a great restaurant. I always get the same thing but, today, I ventured outside of my comfort zone and I'm glad I did. Today I ordered the House Beef and it was delicious. I requested steamed rice instead of fried rice and extra sauce. It was amazing! It's definitely a place you want to try and, when you... More

I have been a customer for many years. Food is consistently good with plentiful choices. Both eating in the dining room and picking up a carry out order are great options.

I had Mongolian beef, and my wife had General Tso chicken, both dishes I have had all over the country. The extremely slow and inept service might be tolerates if it were the prelude to a great meal, but this was not the case. At least 15 minutes to even get the wonton noidles, then another 10 for the pot... More

Best hot and sour soup in all the land! Always fresh and always good. Prices have increased in the past couple years but we still love the place. Best Asian food in the area.
