Every thing on the menu at Ming Lee's is delicious and attractively served. The portions are large and the service polite. A nice dependable place for a good meal.

“Always great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

A couple of wonderful things about this restaurant - the food is always, always good. No matter when you go, the consistency is there. Plus the owner walks around, cleaning, talking with the customers to make sure everything is okay. A wonderful place to eat.

“The best Chinese with excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

I love this restaurant, great food, awesome service, without a doubt the best! I have been here many times and have never been disappointed, sometimes have to wait for a seat but that's because they have a lot of customers due to great food and good service!

“Recommended to us, now WE recommend to YOU!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Our first visit to Ming Lee's Chinese Restaurant was after a very long day at work then traveling to Waterville to set up for a trade show. We wanted something quick and delicious. An associate suggested Ming Lee's and even though we don't live in the area, we found it easily and entered a bustling, well-lit restaurant which had a waiting line! We saw that as a good sign. Impressive were the many take-out packages waiting for pick-up which showed us that eat-in and take-out were both busy.
We didn't have to wait long for a table and after choosing our favorite selections we placed our order. Our food came out very quickly (did I mention we wanted "something quick"?) and it was DELICIOUS! (Yes, I mentioned that, too.) The chicken was clearly fresh and my husband said it was "the best General Tso's Chicken he had ever eaten." (Trust me, that is what he always orders!) I had the Green Beans Triple Delight because it had my favorites: Jumbo Shrimp, Chicken, Pork and green beans, Not only was it perfectly cooked (and delicious), but I got three more good meals out of what was left over. A fabulous deal for less than $13.
Yes, we will go back again. Yes, it ranks with our favorite Asian Restaurants (the other is in MA) and YES, you should try it. You will go back. We were very impressed. The crew is friendly and efficient. Can't wait to try something else on their well-appointed menu!

“Favorite Chinese Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We have been going to Ming Lee's since they first opened. It is always fresh and delicious. The owner is a sweet heart who always remembers the names of her regulars. Our favorites are the pu pu platters, pork egg foo yung and of course... the singapore noodles, among many more! The large servings are always good for one or two more meals at home. As far as someone complaining of a 20 minute wait... well we usually order take out, but I personally have absolutely no problem waiting to be seated, as that is what's to be expected when you dine during peak hours at a popular restaurant. Oh and don't forget to use your Chamber of Commerce discount card! Enjoy.
