My husband and myself dined at Ming's two nights in a row. On the first night 07 April, the place was crawling with tourists, mostly Westerners and some Southeast Asians like us. The establishment serves Western, Chinese and Indian cuisine. We tried indian for a change. The guy who waited on us was a Filipino and he was very friendly. We didn't have to wait long for our order, it was on our table in about 15 minutes, all 5 (sic) of them. We had a very spartan lunch that day so we were literally starving when we arrived in Miri. The indian food was, according to my husband, very good. He said he liked the chicken tandoori. I think their indian bread and its matching dip was very good. I particularly liked their Ming's Green Salad (or was it Miri Salad ? Can't recall) which I ordered as a side dish. The veggies looked and tasted fresh and it was so good I cleaned-up the plate. Our bill for the first night including drinks ? Fifty (50) Malaysian Ringgit , roughly fifteen (15) USD, which I think was cheap. On our second visit, there were more people but we were quite lucky one group was leaving when we got in. Our meals for the second night was less extravagant, Fish and Chips and beer for my husband and indian bread with a spicy dip for my self. Overall, my husband and myself think Ming's Café is a good and safe place to eat and drink and unwind after a hectic day's tour in Miri. And the prices are reasonable. However, you have to ignore and put up with some of the boisterous and noisy customers. We went thru this on our second night. According to our Filipino waiter who claims he has worked with Ming's for about 5 years, there has never been any incident of fighting among customers at Ming. Customers come to drink and when they get drunk, they laugh loudly and yell and shout but no fighting. Which is probably why it is the most popular place for tourists to hang out and be seen in Miri. Ming's accepts major credit cards and in addition to the local currency, their sign says they accept USD, Aussie dollars and Brunei dollars as payment. They also sell souvenir Ming's T-shirt at 25 MR each which I think is a bit high considering the not so good quality of the prints.
