I fell in love with this place the first time I ate here. I do agree that the food is inconsistant, but I have never had a bad meal, just an excellent or a boring one. The service is always good, the one time it...More

What a great spot to have lunch with friends! Plenty of room inside for us and the customers who eat and leave, so the staff didn't rush us off. We had time to ask questions about the menu, have another pot of tea, and talk...More

When we get a "yen" for Chinese, we head for Chef Ming. We have a variety of favorites and always bring home warmups for the next day. There are always plenty of people there and service is prompt and friendly.

We were concerned when we could not find their Health Department score publicly posted at the front of the restaurant as it should be; but we decided to try Chef Ming's anyway. (I checked it online later; it was 85, barely acceptable as far as...More

We ordered the Kung Pao Beef and Hot Spicy Chicken combo dinners. The hot and sour soup was good, the spring rolls mushy. The dinners arrived without rice, which we then asked for. It was lumpy, obviously scraped from the bottom of a pot. We...More
