I had the dumplings and the Singapore mei fun noodles with shrimp, chicken, and beef. Both were okay. I liked that they had a special section just for mei fun noodles - that's not something you always see at traditional American-style Chinese restaurants, but there...More

Red is the color of this hot (spicy) but delicious soup. Met a friend who recommended this dish. There are 2 different menus. Ask for the traditional menu to get this option. It's hot but if I could handle it, it's just right.

PROS: great servers, good tasting food- we had pork, beef, shrimp and duck. They were all good! Affordable. CONS : can be easy to miss from the road and parking spots are a little tight. Otherwise , a great place to eat Chinese food.

This is now my place for large takeouts. I used to go to Taiwan Garden, but seems like their service has slipped. Ming is a "family" business, with competent cashiers and waitstaff. Prices are food. Eat in or take out/delivery you can't go wrong I...More
