We eat quite regularly at Ming.....the food is fresh and the service excellent. We do tend to have the same choices with a few of our favorites being the Sesame Prawn Toasts, Sui Mai, Won Ton Soup; Sweet & Sour Coral Reef fish is a generous serving and yum, the Sweet & Sour Pork is my husbands favorite, along with...

Enjoyed exceptional Chinese cuisine on two visits to Ming this week. I agree that prices were higher than I usually pay elsewhere but the quality of the food was also higher. We went on a particularly busy evening and our hostess was always pleasant and efficient. Honey chicken a must try! Definitely worth a visit.

Not cheap at all, but the food was great and the service was excellent. Portions were very small for the price we paid, but the food was fresh and delicious.

Chinese is my personal favourite cuisine, so I have had a lot to compare to. But this is the best I've experienced. Friendly smiling service to go with it. Peking Duck is one of my favourite dishes, and this was perfect. Will be back!

If we ate here on our first night in Palm Cove we wouldnt have eaten anywhere else. Waitress was very friendly, food arrived very quickly and was delicious! Chicken and beef satay skewers, spring rolls and mongolian beef, even the special fried rice, all the best we have ever had. Price is more expensive than home but is comparable to... More

Delicious chinese, although a tad pricey. Would highly recommended this place! The satay beef is excellent and staff are very sensitive to dietary requirements.

Sorry, this is simply a comment on price. Please note that we didn't actually eat here. We visited the restaurant, as we were staying nearby, to have yum cha. Well the prices are off-the-scale high. Their prices are higher than any yum cha restaurant that we have visited in any parts of Aust and other parts of the world. We... More
