Authentic Chinese food near downtown Orlando. This place is not fancy. Been coming here for over 20 years. Parking is tricky, so come early. Customers mostly asian which is a good sign at at Chinese restaurant. I get the fish with black bean sauce over white rice for $8.95. Wife likes the duck, pork, squid and or shrimp wonton soup....

Don't expect crab rangoons or egg foo yung -- this is authentic Chinese. The staff, while not polished, was friendly. Food was served hot and portions were generous. The roast duck was fantastic! If you're adventurous, try the tripe!

Bossy, loud, waitresses that stick their thumbs into the soapy, bland tea. Been there about 5 times and it never gets better! Why do I keep going back? Several reasons that I'm about to share with u. Ming Bistro is closed and I didn't know they would be and I drove 25 minutes and I'll be damned if I don't... More

with my carnivorous family and they luv it. but my dad and i, who are vegetarians, suffered temporary neck/shoulder/leg aches associated with the large amounts of MSG used in their dishes. it wasn't as noticeable in the past. perhaps they added too much this last visit, i also think the prices are a bit inflated for a hole-in-the-wall type venue....

My friends told me that they visited this restaurant every time they were in Orlando over the years. The BBQ Pork is very popular. My wife and I tried it, sure enough it was great. At first we had BBQ Pork with Rice. Then we ordered a side order of BBQ Pork because it was so good. No wonder they... More

The place is tiny and always packed. The food is delicious and well worth going to. We enjoyed beef fried rice, crispy chicken, pork belly and were overall very impressed with how good the food is. Parking is a little challenging and the place does not hold many people but I love getting take out from this small restaurant.

I had the general tso's and it was not very fresh. The chicken was stale and the sauce was bland. I had takeout but there were a good amount of people in the restaurant so maybe I just missed on the right order

Atmosphere is nothing to rave about, but the food, oh my Lord, the FOOD! Absolutely 1000% authentic Chinese cooking. I saw some people here complained about their so-so service & it is understandable since they have non-stop customers coming into a small place with about 10 tables. The waitresses have to move like robots in order to keep up. I... More
