Having eaten at the main Augusta location many years ago, we were excited to try this after moving back to the area. The buffet food was not good, lower quality than we experienced elsewhere. Very few customers so maybe they need to revamp their offerings and redecorate.

Food is ok, but nothing spectacular. Have all the traditional dishes associated with a chinese buffet. Service is good though.

My wife and I have eaten here twice in the last month and both times found it to be very good. They have a good selection of oriental food offered buffet style. We plan to stop by often.

We get take out most of the time at Ming Wah's. When we go in everything tastes so good we usually eat more than we should. In fact we just got chicken wings from here for the recent Georgia Bulldogs game. They are very good, very crispy and meaty. We particularly like the lomein also. The staff is courteous and... More

This is fairly good food for a low price. Some items were dried out from the heat, but most were pretty darn good (especially the shrimp). The only real negative was the presence of flies but hey this is southern Georgia in the summertime.

I arrived 15 minutes before closing and there was very little food out in the pans and some were empty (which is understandable just before closing). I would have gone on, but my companion wanted Chinese. So I assumed that I would be eating cold and hard food because as you know, when food is not changed out frequently, it... More

Excellently prepared food and fresh. Ate there several times during the course of our stay. Waitstaff was attentive and willing to listen to likes and dislikes about what to eat. Quick to assist in suggesting something we might like.

This small town does not have a lot of choices in regards to restaurants that surpass fast food. This is one of the few that does. If you give it a whirl you will be as surprised as we were. It's a large variety with a great price.
