Right next to the Hilton Motel it was so handy to be able to walk out of our room to have a meal without taking the car. The food was superb. We ate there both nights that we were in Port Lincoln

We went to the business notice board and found the details of the Ming Inn and went for tea. The food was really wonderful with the Mongolian lamb amongst the best I had tasted, the service quick and the prices very reasonable, it was just what we wanted.

The food was nice. It was tender and had some lovely flavours. Great fried rice too. The price was also good for a family dinner :)

A few years ago the food here was excellent but on our last two visits earlier this year it was not so good. For some reason they seemed unable to get the sauces in the dishes right. For example the Szechuan had the wrong balance and didn't taste very good.

Bought takeaway from here one night recently. Around $40 for two entrees, two mains, and one large fried rice. I thought it was a fairly good price, although the spring rolls were overpriced. The food was delicious though, and the service quite fast. Also ate in the restaurant a couple of years ago and had no issues with the food... More

We hadn't eaten at the Ming Inn before, but checked Trip Advisor first! It was ok, but nothing special. Sadly I doubt that we'd be bothered going back when the Peacock Gardens is so close!

This restaurant was quite busy for a Monday night. Serves traditional Chinese food. Well priced and plentiful. I was certainly full by the time I'd finished. A close walk from the Hilton Hotel Port Lincoln
