Good food, good value

Best Chinese restaurant i have been to in Bay Area. Their honey walnut prawns and spicy ginger chicken are sooo good. Gets busy on weekends, even for takeout.

My wife and I ate dinner here with family members. It was within walking distance from their home. The food was good, but not exceptional. But I'd be glad to visit there again.

We have been here a couple times and must say, it is really good. This time our friend had some kind of chow mein and loved it. My wife had Honey Walnut Chicken, which she was very happy with. I had Egg Fuyon with Shrimp (their spelling) and it was also very good. Service was friendly and snappy. We will... More

From the outside this restaurant looks pretty much like any other 2nd rate Chinese restaurant. But looks can be deceiving. Most of their dishes are pretty good and the prices are definitely reasonable. The service is also friendly. Our 14 year old is particularly fond of the Walnut Chicken. I like the MuShu pork. My wife enjoys their Bar BQ... More

Mings was voted #3 in the country of the top 100 Chinese Restaurants. Need I say more. OK The food is very good and the prices are very resaonable. Since it is fairly small you should pick your time to visit wisely. The staff is pleasant and the boss is always on hand. Enjoy.

Whether you take out or eat in, the quality and service are good. If you take out, be sure to call in plenty of time if during peek times. The food is fresh and the will substitute if you ask.

I thought I'd lost the wonderful ginger chicken when Far East Garden closed several years ago. By luck, we were told of Ming's and the recipe for ginger chicken was the same as Far East Garden. We took the chance and, OMG! Just like we remember! So good to have it back :) Everything we've ever ordered from Ming's has... More

Good value menu. Potstickers are tasty, Pasta based dishess are generous and offer good taste. The meats on the other hand need to improve quality. The vegetable dishes are hit or miss.

The food is quite delicious, but it can be very crowded on Friday and Saturday evenings so call ahead for a reservation if planning to eat at the restaurant.

We have struggled to find a Chinese Restaurant we liked since moving to the bay area, but we may have just found a new family favorite at Ming's. We came along, a group of 7, at 5.30pm and were seated at one of the large tables to the rear of the restaurant. At 5.30pm on a Sunday night it was... More
