It is definitely a home away from home cooking. We travel to Florida. The food make us feel great even we are away from home. Ms. Alice is a great hostess. It is a great family style restaurant. I will go there anytime to have my meals. It is a very busy restaurant but well worth the wait.

This is a very small chinese restaurant in what looks like an old convenience store. The staff are bored and it shows in the way they treat customers.The menu is just as uninspiring as the service! There was nothing really wrong with my meal just nothing special about it! I will not return for average food with below average service!!!

The food here is indeed amazing. The specials are a notch above anything else you will find, and even their typical Chinese food is leaps and bounds better than your average take out place. The owner is super friendly and nice, and the service is top notch. the food quality is incredible, and the flavor is magnificent. I highly recommend... More

Title says it all. Not a huge Chinese food person, but this place is the real deal. Had the Kung Pao b/c I prefer the spicy and it didn't disappoint. Egg roll was great. Portion was huge for a lunch and for the price. Lady runs the front while the gentleman cooks in the back. Small quaint open seating area.... More

Had takeout here this week for lunch because of the #4 rating on here. First off, I don't understand how this place is rated this high?! So many restaurants in the top 15 should be a head of this place. Had the orange chicken dish with rice and spent the whole day in the bathroom. I don't plan to come... More

Love the way this small cafe works. Good ingredients, husband and wife team, with an emphasis on made to order. I crave chinese take out, but you need to call early or late as they strive to satisfy the people in the seats first, to the point of not answering the phone at peak times. I see this as a... More

I am a Chinese food enthusiast, but yet to have the real thing in China. I have had many friends recommend this place, and I am so glad I finally got around to going here. First of all, the owners are some of the nicest people I have met. Ask about the special green tea, and just get it. It... More

We have followed Alan and Alice Sha in various venues in Tallahassee for 30 years. Their latest endeavor, is the Ming Tree Cafe on Killarney Way, if you are visiting Tallahassee, this unpretentious place is off the beaten path and worth the effort. No all you can eat buffet here, just food cooked fresh and to order. Best hot and... More
