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.

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.

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.
