By all reports, this restaurant is now closed. For the past few weeks, when driving by, we noticed that there weren't any cars and the landscaping was left untouched. We are very disappointed and from all indications, the restaurant closed without any notice. Maybe someone will buy it and bring it back to life?

As locals, for years we truly enjoyed Ming Dynasty. A few (3 or so) years ago, the quality and overall dining environment began to falter. The dining area got "long in the tooth" and the buffet was only average on its best day. We stopped going there altogether until today when we noticed that some much needed repairs were made... More

We came here because my aunt wanted to treat everyone and the grandkids love going to Asian buffets. The food is passable. We went on a Thursday at 5pm. There are 3 sides of food (one double sided buffet and one single sided buffet) with mostly Asian-American seafood dishes, some American, and some salad stuff. There are also two small... More

Quick place to sit and hang out or run in fill up and go. Good food, great service. The kids love to be able to pick their own.

My husband and I popped in for lunch in the mid-afternoon while we were in the area. I believe it was $8.95 which included non-alcoholic drinks, soup, fruit, salad, rice, mac & cheese, mini hot dogs, chicken wings, FRESH SHRIMP!, General Tso's chicken, chicken & brocolli, etc as well as ice cream, cookies, and cake. We were pleasantly surprised that... More

We visited this buffet on a Wednesday night at about 7 PM. They make you pay first so there are apparently no refunds. There was not many choices and the food that was out was cold. It had not been stired in a while so the sauces had solidified and dried up. The butter and fat had couagulated and made... More

I have been eating here for years and absolutely love the food. There is even some American food on the buffet for those in your party who don't like Chinese food. The Mongolian BBQ is great, as is the sushi, the snow crab legs, and the roast beast. I used to eat here quite a lot, but since the price... More
