We go to the Ming about once a week. There are so many choices of entrée meats: beef, pork, chicken, often fish, sometimes shrimp. (On the supper buffet, which costs a bit more, there is almost always shrimp.) There is white rice, fried rice, vermicelli. There are egg rolls and rangoons. There are salad items and small cakes.

Buffets scare me! This one was really delicious and our server was outstanding! They didn't have brewed iced tea but she made me hot tea and iced it specially for me:) no ice cream for dessert as found at other buffets. My favorite was cashew chicken and chicken and broccoli as the quality of the chicken was really good in... More

Decided to eat here while vacationing here. Came here at about 5:30 for dinner on a Tuesday. Nothing was fresh or hot. Very few people eating at this time so food was not being refreshed. The food had been sitting way too long.

My guess is we had dinner here at an off time, 6:30-7:00 pm. It was quite slow and much of the food was not fresh, it was quite dried out. While it was our first and only time we will eat here as we are traveling, compared to what I've had at other buffets like this, this food was tasteless.... More

I recommend going during the typical lunch and dinner times. It may be more crowded, but, when it’s fresh it’s a great buffet. When it’s not fresh, it’s bad. Not much else to say.

Freshly prepared dishes, regularly topped up, make this a "value for money" place to lunch. Most meat dishes were chicken; not enough seafood, pork or beef dishes. Those we tried were tasty. There's plenty of food here on offer to satisfy all appetites and it's good value if you're hungry. Dessert included.

I will say some of the food at Ming's is not so great. Frequently something looks really tasty but turns out to be coated with a sickeningly sweet sauce. One time I grabbed a heap of something that looked good but found out at the table that the brown sauce tasted like tobacco juice. But really you cannot go wrong... More
