“Great good”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Visited on Satruday and had not been for a while the food as always been good but place lacks atmosphere. But this time there was a new manager and the service and atmosphere was much better. He told us this was his first week and he is defintely making and impact. The food is great and now the service matches it and I will definetly be going back

“nice meal”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Just come back from a very pleasant meal at the Ming Dynasty Chinese restaurant. The meal was very nice. and the service was very good. They have a new manager and this was his first day. We had the buffet meal which was very good value. The food is not cooked and left to stand. Everything is cooked fresh for you so you get the food hot.

“nothing to drink!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

yesterday evening staff wanted to seat hubby and myself at a table immediately on arrival but said we were waiting for a friend; after sitting by the bar for about 5minutes we were asked if we wanted a drink whilst waiting - but as they did not have their new licence could not serve anything alcoholic....friend arrived soon after and the three of us left and went elsewhere.
very bad management of who is in charge. why should two people have to keep the designated driver company with fruit juice.

“Starters very good - the rest a big let down”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Returned for our first visit in around a year and to be honest won't be rushing back. On arrival we were given prawn crackers and our orders were taken. The starters arrived quick enough we ordered salt and chilli ribs, prawn toast and spring rolls and to be fair they were very good. But while i was still eating mine the waitress was cleaning the table around me. Then for mains we had ordered fillet steak in garlic sauce, beef in garlic sauce and crispy chicken in chilli and garlic, with side order of chips and fried rice. All the meals arrived and the crispy chicken was not crispy it was just cooked chicken and i hadn't tasted anything as flayourless in my life!!!!! I pointed this out and this was swapped for crispy chicken which arrived when the other two had nearly finished. When it did arrive it was more like chicken nuggets than crispy chicken. The other two in my parties dishes in garlic were also very flavourless. All this at the cost of £60 with six soft drinks. I have visited here probably 5 times in the last few years but won't be returning.

“Gorgeous food, great service, grand atmosphere.”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely man who took us to our seats. He quickly then brought us the worlds best tasting prawn crackers and assured me that they had diet coke, ( often people say Pepsi is coke) which they did.

Our order was taken and our mountains of amazing tasting food came quickly.

Ming dynasty is by far the best Chinese restaurant in the area.
