Still considered the best around to me. Great staff and a clean environment. Recommend a try if you haven't been. You won't be disappointed!

I have been to Ming Lee several times and the service is never very good. Tonight there were barely any customers and I waited way too long to get service. The people that came in after me were waited on first... Once I got home with my take out, some of my food was missing and the food I did... More

Consistently, I have found this restaurant to have great food, great service and at a competitive price. Eaten here dozens of times and have never had bad service or anything but wonderful food. There are some other decent Chinese restaurants in the area but this is by far the best. Visiting friends always insist upon going here for dinner.

This restaurant has always met the mark of our expectations. The portions are large enough that you have enough to have a meal to take home. Every entree we have had had great flavor. They also have very good service.

My husband and I love this restaurant. The food is always freshly made and delicious. The service is great and the owner is wonderful. She always goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and make sure they are happy with their food. This is by far the best Chinese food in Central Maine!

My friend and I came here on a Sunday at noon. The hostess said there would be a wait, which is totally understandable on a Sunday in Waterville where it seems one of every two restaurants is closed on Sunday. Twenty minutes or so later, we were seated at a spacious and clean booth. We ordered house special Lo Mein... More

Title says it all. Super tasty Asian food. Prices are fair and plates are full of flavor. If you're looking for the staple Chinese restaurant that every town has, this is the place to go.

This has to be the place to be for a Chinese Dinner. Line up to eat in, and the take out was continously busy. A huge menu with many unique dishes.
