Very good authentic Chinese. No buffet but extensive menu with many choices. Has several large round tables for small groups.

Food was not what I expected, not the usual orange chicken not even similar. I told waiter she got manager told me I could order something different, but I had to pay for it and half price for the food that was not good. Will not go back. I usually never have any complaints about any resturant.

Not sure what has happened in the last few years but this place used to be some of the best chinese food that you could get in all of Columbia (in my opionion), now it's merely mediocre.

The price you pay for the amount... More

We have eaten here before on several occasions but it is a 30 minute drive or more for us. We had forgotten just how much they care about the food which they serve. Vegetables are fresh, crisp tender and the sauces are savory. Service is attentive and mindful. If you have not tried Sun Ming, I suggest you make the... More

No reservation on a Friday at 6:30, we were seated within 5 minutes. Server spoke adequate English and was super friendly. She missed one item of our order and brought it right away once we informed her. She also made menu recommendations to help us in ordering. My sister got an appetizer for $6.95 that had lots of food. I... More

We eat here often and it's one of the few restaurants that started out good but just keeps getting better and better. All sorts of authentic chinese food, great lunch specials and the food is super yummy!
