As a traveller on company business I decided to visit Mings for my evening meal as it is advised that it was open until 10:00pm.j
I arrived at 8:45pm only to find there were no staff around, & after waiting a further 5 minutes the waiting staff appeared & announced that they had finished serving for the day !!
Perhaps they should update their publication of opening times?
Not impressed seeing as the Trip Advisor reviews rate it so highly.

Hello, we are sorry to hear you were unable to dine with us that evening. I am certain it would have been the case that we are fully booked as we are a busy independent restaurant and always advise our customers to book in advance in order to avoid disappointment. Being a busy restaurant we do not always have space to cater for last minute walk-Ins. The times we advertise are correct so this is certainly not the issue. We do hope you will be impressed the next time you dine with us - please do use our "Book your Table" function on the website or call in advance to make sure you can enjoy our delicacies at the time you wish to.

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions and have always been impressed with the freshness of the food, the relaxed atmosphere and polite staff. Last night we went and yet again we were impressed which has prompted us to leave a review. Great food with amazing flavours with a good selection. We loved the Thai green chicken curry and Mings special noodles and it was hard to choose which starter to have because they all sound good. Chicken gyozas were amazing . Great ambience and set in the historic grid of the beuatful Bury St Edmunds. Well worth a visit .

This place is just fantastic. I've been here several times and every single time, the service is fabulous (my bugbear with Customer Service is no smiles when everyone smiles here, brilliant), very attentive waiters and waitresses. The food is just gorgeous, I'm vegan and Ming always cooks me the most delicious dishes. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited Bury St Edmunds 2 years ago & ate at Mings.. the meal was so great we wondered if it could be as great on our 2nd trip to Bury.. It was! The food is so fresh & delicious.. Everyone's food around us looked & smelled amazing too. Not a bulk standard Chinese restaurant.. the food at Mings is far superior

First trip to Ming’s and we will be back. Very friendly staff and attentive service. You can definitely tell that the food is made fresh and portion size was good. We had two starters and two mains all had excellent flavor. Would give five stars but my only complaint was that my main had way too many red onions ( spring onions were listed as ingredient) I love onions but would have like a bit less and maybe some broccoli or mushrooms would have added to the dish.
