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

Palm Cove you are lucky to have Ming Dynasty! This place serves the most authentic Chinese food I have ever had in regional Australia and the best san choi bow this side of Shanghai. The quality of the food is excellent and it certainly feels much healthier than other options in Palm Cove. The prices might seem a bit high,... More

Live locally and have now eaten here twice. Both times the service was first-class with detailed explanation of dishes and extremely friendly. Food is closest to high-class chinese that I have eaten. Highly recommend.

The food was excellent, as was the service. Although we arrived right in peak time they took us to the last free table and we had food in 15 mins. The San Choi Bow in particular was fantastic!

Claimed by staff to be the best Chinese restaurant in Cairns. The food is certainly average but the prices were ridiculous. Wouldn't mind the cost if it reflected the quality of the food.

Great dinner shared with like minded people on holiday from Vic. The meal was very tasty and the staff were flexible in complying with our requests in preparing a sate scallops dish that isnt on their menu very yummy. Wine expensive but the pricey surcharge is worse

Ming Dynasty was recommended to us by a local. The food was excellent & the service was friendly & efficient. Prices were probably more than I would expect for a small restaurant, but being a tourist area I suppose that was expected.
