Great service with family owned and run restaurant. Out meals were fabulous, costs reasonable and we would return.

We recently visited to celebrate a friends birthday and Ming's Palace was chosen for the Peking Duck. And we were not disappointed! It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. We had pre-ordered the Pekin Duck but I had the sense that you don't need to. But I would, just to be sure. Service was very good,... More

The place is famous because of Peking Duck. You also can find a reasonable variety of other Chinese meals in there. Service generally was good except of the final part where we have been waiting quite a while for the last change of meals. This may be a downside of the popularity. Meals were generally good, except of the last... More

Visiting Adelaide and staying in the same street, we came across this very busy restaurant on a Friday night. Walked in off the street and luckily they had a table for 5 available. Menu selection was very good. Service was also good, however, due to it being so busy, took a while to get our meals. Presentation was excellent and... More

Probably the best Peking Duck in town. Very crispy, good mix of flesh and skin and not too fatty either. The fortune chicken was delicious with crispy skin and all the juices was retained. Perfectly cooked and generous serving. Four people or more should share this dish.

Excellent food. It's a great place to book for a celebration dinner for 8 or more people - you can share dishes and feast on different flavours. Peking Duck is a specialty, and I always like to order the Deep Fried Tofu which is superb.

Attended a private function here and the food was top notch, especially the Peking Duck. No complaints whatsoever about the food, however the table service really needs to lift. Waitresses coming over with large platters and standing there demanding we make room on the table to accommodate the dishes. Frankly, for a wedding, I am not sure why it is... More

Make sure book a table, as this restaurant is very popular with the locals. The food is wonderful, we always go with Banquet B - great value for money. The Hot & Sour Soup & Green Beans are delicious. The owner, Mr Ming and his family always make you feel welcome, and if he has time Mr Ming will come... More

I went there for a friend's farewell party. My first time eating Peking duck outside of china. I think the flavours were authentic, we all loved it. I also enjoyed the other food. Overall, very Chinese.
