We had family meal here last Friday evening which was my first visit here for about eight or ten years. As I recall this was a busy restaurant providing better than average Chinese cuisine at a price correspondingly higher than average.

We all chose the set meal B which provided a well balanced selection of typical Chinese fair, some dishes better than others but all of a reasonable standard. We did find the spare ribs in the starter selection rather dry, left over from the previous night and micro-waved? but we all enjoyed the spicy prawn/shrimp dish. The courses were served promptly, perhaps a little too quickly for some.

Pleasant and comfortable restaurant to eat in, better than most in fact, but perhaps they could pay attention to some details like offering to take your coats on arriving and providing complementary prawn crackers with our drinks.

Went here last Saturday night, with 3 friends. We had the Set Meal 2 as it gave us starters, duck pancakes and a variety of main dishes. 22 quid each, which was pretty good considering how much we got! The food itself was good, Chinese is always quite 'gooey' anyway but the starters and duck were lovely. The sizzling fillet steak was a great dish, proper meat and not just fatty bits! The Szechuan prawns were good too. Obviously, being a Chinese restaurant, service with a smile was neither expected nor received, and we were asked to leave when it was obvious we weren't going to order any more drinks, which is a bit abrupt but quite normal for a Chinese. However, I wasn't put off and would definitely go again as I would rather chat to the people I am with than the waiting staff - I only mention it as some people feel they need to be entertained and would probably not go here based on lack of friendly service.

Don't know if we picked an off night ?
Recently visited with friends on a Saturday evening and the
place was fairly quiet,food was pretty poor tasted as if it had
been cooked for some time and just heated up in a microwave.
When we received the bill(which seemed a bit pricey)I noticed that
they had charged for an extra bottle of wine!when questioned the
waiter showed no reaction and corrected it without any comment or
apology.
Have been here before and it was better,but we will not be returning.

Once again we visited this restaurant and once again we were not disappointed, the food was exceptionally good freshly cooked and the service was attentive. There were young children in our group and they went the extra mile to accommodate them. I can understand other comments that people have made about service but whilst not cracking jokes, the staff were attentive and efficient, The Wine is very good value as are the desserts, and whilst Mings is never 'cheap' it is really good value!
