The food is above the local average, however the young women who work the front seem to be at the whim of their emotional and personal lives. This leaves some with a bad taste in their mouths. The better choice is the Chinese restaurant in Temple St.

What a nice clean place this is, first of all. The atmosphere is great, and last but certainly not least, the food is fantastic.

Ming Lee is, by far, the most popular Chinese restaurant in Waterville. The place itself is nicely laid-out, but the entryway is usually crowded with people--either waiting for pick-up or waiting to be seated. It can get very confusing, especially for older people. Once you're seated, the waitresses are attentive, but the food itself isn't that good. The "Crab Rangoon"... More

Standard American-Chinese menu, sweet-sour chicken was heavily breaded chicken strips accompanied by a red fluorescent sauce. Lo mein was soupy and no flavor, fortunately they had some chili sauce to add at least a little flavor. Beef with veges... More

Welcoming, appealing atmosphere, always a treat to come here! Wait staff and hostess always friendly and helpful. Have Chinese your way… no MSG, no problem… sauce on the side, surely… helpful waitresses can explain anything that you have a question about. And I get my meal exactly the way I want it. Always flavorful, generous portions. You might want to... More

Ming Lee Chinese Restaurant comes with great service and great food. My family has eaten in and we have also ordered out. Each time has been a worth wild. Fresh food every time with a short wait time. Make sure to take the time and give them a try.

Typical Chinese food, but mostly made fresh to order. It rates near the top in this local market but with no outstanding elements of being different or offering any outsatnding items. A reasonable value if you like run of the mill chinese food.
