While very dull the restaurant is very clean. I found myself wondering how much of the food was actually prepared fresh and how much came pre-packaged. This may not be right but I wondered.

I first ordered from Chef Ming's 15 years ago. The food was reliable. After a several year hiatus, I tried the menu again twice this year. It was amazingly disappointing both times. The take out order (over 60 dollars) was underseasoned and cold. Most recently,...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.
