“Prompt, good food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Have had the pleasure of dining at Ming Garden on numerous occasions now (a firm favourite for family gatherings and birthdays)
Lovely owners - there is always a warm smile and greeting from Kevin and Mary, and the rest of the staff are polite and efficient.
Yes they do often deal with a large number of Tour Groups during the busy months (as does Te Anau in general) however they generally cater for them in a separate room and I have never found this to affect the prompt service or quality for the rest of the people dining in.
Food has always been of a consistently good standard each time, very tasty (the spring rolls are fantastic!) and at a very reasonable price.
Will be back!

“Bland vegetarian dishes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

A very disappointing meal. I had vegetable chow mein which consisted of a few green vegetables and burnt noodles - oh flavourseemed to come from a gloppy sauce made of powdered chicken stock. Althought the meal was not expensive and the service was average, I would not recommend this restaurant at all.

“I give a credit only roast duck”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Being with chinese food for whole life, I can say that roast duck here was very tasty. Really close to the one in Hong Kong. But other dishes were kinda western-tongue taste. Not good not bad. Price was so reasonable and good service.

“Not spicy enough & not for vegetarians”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

Just bland chinese food with only 3 vegetables in every dish. A whole lot of celery and some broccoli and zucchini. The chicken was bland too. The noodle plates were full of pan fried noodles and not boiled and stir fried noodles.

Will not go back again.
