Ming Garden isn’t pretentious or fancy but for a good lunch after church on Sunday, their buffet has been satisfying the locals for over 30 years. Their Hot and Sour soup is outstanding. Their health rating is consistently in the 90s so you don’t worry...More

When we first visited this restaurant, we got the buffet. If you are into "fast food" Chinese, then the buffet would probably be good. We did not enjoy it. We do try to give restaurants a couple of chances and we are glad we did...More
