“Over cooked greasy Delight. Like old food, & grease?”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

The food is overly greasy, over cooked, tough, not fresh. I was hoping the rice was fresh, but it was even bad.

“Quantity & Quality!”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

Buffet is always well stocked, hot & fresh. Great service in a quiet, peaceful setting. Can't beat it for great selections when looking for quantity!

“Not what it was...”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

Food quality is good but continues to show more and more signs of cost cutting. The fried rice seemed like left over steamed rice with some onion and mixed veggies stirred in...no sign of cashews in the cashew chicken, etc. It's still an OK place to fill up. Service remains good. Just disappointing in the slow downgrade in the dishes over the years.

“Large diverse selection of delicious Chinese food.”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

Ming's buffet is the best choice for lunch in the area. Not only is it a very good value (about $10 with a drink), but the selection is impressive - at least 50 different Chinese food items to go along with a salad/fruit/pudding bar, unlimited steamed rice, and soft-serve ice cream for dessert. I enjoyed eating here many Saturday afternoons while living in the area and still enjoy stopping by when I'm back in the area.
