We ordered the chow mein from ming garden, thinking that we would treat ourselves as we hadnt had chinese in a while. We had it delivered and it was quite fast. However upon tasting the food found it was rather bland. The amount of oil in the food made a large puddle in the bottom of the plastic bag that... More

I have read reviews on this restaurant and decided to do a takeaway instead of eating in. We ordered some fried rice, 2 beef dishes and sweet and sour fish. The wait time was less than 15 minutes. The food was tasty and not overly oily like most Chinese takeaway. A good choice if you miss Chinese food.

We found the food to be very good and the prices reasonable. Service efficient. Lots of locals eating and large Chinese tour groups in separate function room.

After whole week of western food and fine dining, we were desperate for rice and stir fries. We picked this restaurant from trip advisor. The restaurant patrons were mainly Chinese which is usually a good sign. There were plenty of traditional dishes to choose from plus dishes with local ingredients, e.g. sizzling venison. The service was prompt and fast. The... More

We were really disappointed with this restaurant. There were four of us, so we ordered a banquet. People were coming in after us, being served, leaving, and we were still waiting for our food to arrive. It took a long time between courses to be served. By the time the last dish came out (about 2 hours after our first... More

We visited this restaurant after reading the good reviews on trip advisor, and had such high hopes for a nice Chinese dinner. Unfortunately we left very disappointed. I ordered the pork chow mien and asked for it to be made spicy and it was quite possibly the blandest dish I have ever eaten. The noodles resembled super noodles, and the... More
