“Waitress extraordinaire!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We have visited this restaurant many times in the past and found it quite quiet on occasions. Tonight was totally different, the restaurant was full and had a wonderful atmosphere. The food was just as good as always, hot plentiful and constantly being restocked. Service is normally of a good standard but this evening was of a different class. There was only one waitress on to deal with a very full restaurant, but you would never have known
She was incredibly efficient and attentive. Waiting every table clearing dishes and running the bar, all with a smile on her face and plenty of pleasant chit-chat. Biggest tip I have left in a long time. Will definitely be returning.

“Sour feelings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I think that this restaurant lived up to the expectations that I had. I know from asking the members of staff that some of the staff have left to reunite at another 'ming' in the surrounding areas. Because of this, a lot of sourness was left and gripes are causing the bad atmosphere and tension. I think the food is AMAZING and the service is the best they can possibly do! The service has significantly improved since January and even the lychees and fresh fruits has made a sudden return! The delivery boys although not waiters, always help and give a smile around the restaurant when they see you. I can't fathom the other negative reviews because I am a regular customer and is never disappointed. The last review is clearly a nasty jibe from previous members of staff!!

“Was so good last year, what happened”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

I used to visit this place regularly and it was fantastic. It's really gone down hill. I used to have food delivered frequently and was always delighted by the friendliness of the guys who delivered. Adrian was always so cheerful and always used to have a laugh. Things changed so much I stopped ordering or visiting. My friend said the Chinese at yealmpton was good so I tried it and was so pleased to see the delivery guy was Adrian, the good was amazing as well, now I know the Ming crew are at yealmpton at old mother hubbards. What a result normality restored. Shame the Ming will be out of action very soon

“excellent unhurried chinese buffet meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

4 of us visited here last Tuesday and had a really excellent meal. Plentiful hot and tasty Chinese food with excellent drink service when required. Very good choice of starters, mains and desserts. Good price point. Would definitely visit again.
