Excellent buffet

Loads of seafood. And chinese food. And sushi. You will not go away hungry and it's not just how many ways can you eat chicken.

Went to ming garden on a Monday night. We usually visit on a Friday or Saturday and have no problems but on Monday the waitress was very rude and not very knowledgeable about the menu. Then we had to wait 10 minutes for an employee to walk over to the hibachi grill although 5 employees walked right by. Food wasn't... More

The food selection has really improved since my last visit. The food was all fresh and hot or cold depending on what you ate. The waitress was friendly and made sure we had everything that we needed. I ate until I could hold no more although there was still plenty I would have loved to try as it all looked... More

My son and I stumbled upon Ming Garden by accident a couple years ago and we're so glad we did!! It has the best Chinese food we have ever had and the buffet is larger than any other we've been to. In my opinion, to get the best deal, you should go after 4 PM on weekdays or anytime on... More

First, there is nothing to direct the new customer. No signage or instructions and the server did not speak much english though she was very pleasant. The buffet had a lot going on but every seafood dish was cold and the other food had nothing to recommend it. The grill guys totally ignored us. And finally the price was way... More

We recently moved here from Va Beach and were worried we would have to drive to get good sushi. Ming Garden has a great selection of Sushi and are great about allowing you to add or modify what they do have on the menu. I had to look at the menu online in order to see the sushi options because... More

Was treated to dinner by a friend. I am out of state and I enjoyed the different dishes. I didn't think the service was very friendly but they were very busy. A great variety of dishes. I wasn't greatly impressed, but most of the food was reasonably tasty. I don't think it would be the first place I would choose,... More

Some of the chicken dishes, like General Tso's and Seasame Chicken where dry and and not hot. The walnut shrimp is really good but it's very rich. Stuff shrimp is only average, not a lot of flavor at all. Soups and wontons are great and always hot and fresh. Overall their food and sushi is average. Their grill (choose your... More

Arrived at 3:30pm on Friday August 29th. Buffet food had apparently been there since noon from the texture and temperature. At 4pm I noticed them restocking the buffet & thought 'about time'.I made my second trip to the bar to try for something edible & returned to my seat. I was informed by the waiter that I couldn't have the... More

My wife and I brought our kids here for dinner on a Wednesday night, and it was pretty busy at 6:00 PM. However, we were not impressed - the server was very inattentive, the food on the buffet had been setting around for too long (some was dried out and the rest was drowning in grease), and the men's rest...
