Well, I ordered from here from JustEat on 24/11/16. My food arrived early, not bad. Then, we actually opened the food and it went downhill from there... the rice was bland and dry, the noodles were thin and straggly and had no flavour, and the lemon sauce for the lemon chicken tasted of vinegar not lemon. There was an additional... More

We visited the Ming on 4 sept to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was excellent but the food a little disappointing. We ordered chicken and sweet corn soup which was lacking in chicken but plenty of sweet corn. The mains were acceptable but could have been better.

We visited the restaurant after a very long gap. We were very impressed and there was a lovely atmosphere. Food was lovely and didn't feel rushed

Went for a meal on 12/08/16 with my partner and a friend who was visiting from overseas. We had an excellent three course meal very reasonably priced and service was very good. We were not rushed at all and we would definitely go back again and also picked up a take away menu which looks very appetizing.

Had a meal during a rainy night stop over. There was no real atmosphere, but to be fair there were no other diners because it was quite early in the evening. I ordered a sizzling platter which arrived quickly and was very good. The menu is quite extensive and the service is good.

Little bit of cost cutting apparent in the dishes, with far less meat and more veg in the stir fry type main courses.

Have been here a few times as part of a bigger group but this is the first time as just a couple on our own. The service is always excellent and tonight was no different. You will never be left to twiddle your thumbs here waiting for someone to remember that you need to order, all staff are very attentive... More
