Good prices hot and tasty.

Was craving Chinese and there is a few in Te Anau. So I went here based on the advice from a local, and was so glad I did. Very welcoming staff and delicious food was found, the menu is big enough to spot all your favourites, with a few additional specials featuring NZ produce such as venison... read more

A smelly restaurant with a very very rude service to the customer. It was my life time worst experience at dinner time on my holidays. I would never suggest to any one to have take away or dine in over that restaurant.

We got takeaway...not outstanding but certainly safe and tasty enough. Roast Pork fried rice could have been "spicier / bbq ish " and the vegetables were a good selection

We arrived late in the evening and they let us order even though they were finishing up for the night. The food was well prepared and the staff were very nice.

We were seated immediately upon entering despite only being there for takeaways. It seems that meals are a lot cheaper to takeaway than to eat there. They do deliver for the same price to the local accommodation places. Takeaway meals however don't include rice so you have to order separately. Lucky that I asked before we left. We ordered lemon...

My wife and I had a quick dinner at Ming Garden before we left for the glow-worm tour. I can highly recommend the beef with mushrooms; it was very tasty and we both enjoyed it.

Finding good food at a reasonable price on the Tourist Circuit in NZ is not easy.This unpretentious Chinese restaurant in the small town of Te Anau does just that.Generous portions.Friendly service.We really enjoyed it.

Our visit to this restaurant was verydisappointing. The extractor fan in the kitchen was not working properly so the fat fumes kept drifting into the kitchen causing people to cough.The rice was served first so that it was cold when the rest of the food arrived. The meals over all were very greasy. The ingredients were good but poorly cooked
