We went here for a family dinner. The food was good the service was typical for Chinatown. The restaurant was clean compared to a lot I have been to. Make sure you read the menu before you go this is not Chop Suey and Egg Foo Young. There is a lot of very Asian dishes on this menu. We sat upstairs at a huge table it did not take much for them to accomodate the 16 of us. There is a lazy susan in the middle of the table and you swing the food around. We had oysters and rabbit, beef with chow mein noodles, crab rangoon, duck, pork belly, shrimp with ginger and an array of other things. I have to say I was a bit nervous going in after reading the menu but it was nice and decent quality food. I am not a huge fan of Chinese and prefer Viet and Korean food but I have to say this was a very enjoyable place. I really wish we could have tried Dim Sum here but we were to early.

We went to this place after its recent expansion into two store fronts on the ground floor. It also has an upstairs space, making the restaurant one of the largest in Chinatown. The Dim Sum here is very good and compares well to many family restaurants in Hong Kong. They also have more variety than many other places in Chicago Chinatown. Their Macau style pork belly is excellent.

My son was in town and we wanted to get dim sum with him. We were going to go to one of our old haunts, when we noticed that a new place had replaced China Chef and Mountain 'something' (2 bigger store fronts. From the first glance the place looks very upscale (especially for Chinatown) and inviting. When we went in, we were pleasantly shocked by the ultra modern and super clean (lets see how long that lasts) downstairs part of the restaurant. It was full (at lunch time) and we were offered a table upstairs. My wife asked if the upstairs was as nice as the downstairs. The host hesitated, which should have been the 1st hint. He said it was nice upstairs and also remodeled. We went upstairs. My wife was ready for the downstairs experience, so she declined the table and we went back downstairs to wait. After about 2 1/2 minutes (?) we were seated at a nice table in the main restaurant. The menu for dim sum was standard but also a bit more elegant than most. Pictures with little boxes where you denote how many of each dish you would like. The variety is very good and the quality was GREAT! We kept ordering as we found specials on a separate page stapled to the dim sum menu. They also had some regular 'specialties' on the reverse side of the dim sum menu. It included veggie, BBQ meat, fried rice, noodle, and appetizer dishes.

We WILL be back to try some of the other dim sum dishes, as well as looking forward to dining out for dinner.

We lingered over tea after the great meal and caught up with our son. It was a very enjoyable time. The ambiance and food made it so.

We had lunch in this restaurant with a Chinese host, so it was pretty easy to choose the dishes.
We ordered several plates to share:

-dim sum ***
- deep fried crab roll **
- roasted duck ****
- dumplings ***
- beef ball ***
- pot sticker ****
- beef crepe ***
- mini sweet custard roll ***
- baked creamy egg yolk bun ***

We drank green tea, it was good.
I enjoyed the variety of food and the private room where we had lunch. We paid $13 per person, it's very cheap.
The staff is nice.

Minghin has the atmosphere of a more upscale restaurant (more space between tables, higher level of decor and appointments). Its prices are reasonable - a notch above the cheapest Chinatown establishments, but still a bargain. The wide ranging menu has some very authentic dishes as well as some that look geared for the unadventurous pallette. The Sichuan dishes are authentic and very spicy. In all dishes I've eaten there, the ingredients were fresh, well prepared, and not drowned in too much heavy sauce - a flaw of poorer Chinese restaurants. This place is a definite find. Service was superb - not at all typical Chinatown service. Waitstaff was very attentive, water glasses and teapot refilled regularly.
