This place gave us the usual type of Chinese food, nothing particularly exciting but just good and tasty food. Quite expensive for Chinese food but, hey, we are at Palm Cove. Friendly, fast service and we enjoyed our meals which were very tasty indeed!

Such a disappointing experience. We recently dined here as a group of 9. The dishes are incredibly overpriced and small. A very poor attitude by one staff member ruined our night. Definitely will not return or recommend.

I remember when there used to be local family run Chinese restaurants whose main aim it was to serve fresh good food. As some of the other reviewers have suggested it may be a little expensive and the service sizes not enormous. As a family I would rather pay more to have fresh food cooked well and see every plate... More

We were very disappointed in the service as we had to ask for cutlery, plates and even had to add our own bill. Prices were ridiculous for the serving sizes. Can't imagine how they would cope when busy as we were the only two eating and still had to ask for cutlery to eat the meal then had to go... More

Excellent dining experience! Food was very enjoyable. A little pricey but to be expected in Palm Cove. Highly recommend for dinner.

Doesn't look much from the outside but very impressed with the food. Shared san choy bow and peking duck. 6 generous pieces of duck on the plate to wrap in our pancakes. Delicious. Then szechuan beef. Great flavour, tasty, fresh and tender beef. Highly recommend this restaurant.

As Melbourne visitors, spoilt for choice at home, and enjoying Chinese food, we were absolutely delighted with the three dinners we had here during our holiday. This is quality food of the best kind-fresh, beautifully prepared ingredients of excellent standard. The prawn dishes were so delicious that we shared one each time we went, so can report that the Garlic... More

The Ming Dynasty was virtually full when we arrived just before 8pm on a sunday night. Thankfully the waitress found us the last remaining table outside which was ideal on a warm winter evening. We had the chicken and sweetcorn soup for a starter, and the sizzling beef and duck with egg fried rice for main course. all of the... More

Recently staying in Palm Cove stayed for 9 nights ate here for 4. Normally we would try different one very night but enjoyed the food the service as well as the sound of the sea on the beach while dining - very romantic. The chief here seems to get the dishes spot on and the staff at the time were... More

In a group of 4 Australians and 8 Italian friends we had dinner at Ming Dynasty. Our Italian guests told us that they could not find good Chinese cuisine in Milano. After our night at Ming Dynasty they know what Chinese food should taste like. Bellisimo!! The best Chinese I have ever had in Australia, 3 courses for 12 people... More
