I went with my boyfriend's family here, since it was one of his favorite places in Kingsport. We went for lunch and ordered from the buffet. The food was just decent. Some of it was way overcooked and dry (pork) and the rest was just okay. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great. I'd say the best thing was the... More

The chicken in three dishes were way over cooked, hard. They may have been left over from the day before. The Mongolia grill was ok thought. Price was higher than competitors in close proximity of Ming Garden.

We regularly visit Ming Garden, we like Chinease food. We find Ming has on days and off days, but you still have to pay the Dinner prices if it's good or bad. Too many off evenings here lately. They put just enough food out to cover the bottom of pan, it sets there and gets thick and gross, not stirred... More

typical Chinese but not as good as most others. Good location and a lot of people eat there but I have had enough

If you want to be made to feel like you are not wanted, this is the place for you. The man who cooks the Mongolian grill gets the sourpuss of the year award. He all but hisses at you. The servers sit at their own table and give the impression that they are talking about the patrons. We have gone... More

I had early dinner and I was looking forward to authentic Egg Foo Yung. I could tell the waitress was disappointed that I was ordering off the menu and not eating off the Buffett trough. I ordered the shrimp egg foo yung and egg drop soup. The soup was "ok". The rice tasted bland and seemed as if it had... More

I live local and this place is great when it is fresh. Chinese is the base but there are lots of different culture variety to choose from. My kids love their chicken nuggets. I always try to be there as soon as the door opens around 11 am because once it sets for a while the meats tend to get... More

My family really loves Chinese food. The quality of the food in this place definitely depends upon the time of day you attend. Anytime after 6 pm is usually a bad choice. Why? because they stop putting fresh items out. I love their Mongolian grill for the simple fact my daughter who has severe allergies can get a dish made... More

This is our favorite Chinese buffet. It's clean, the service is always exceptional. I like this Chinese place better than the others I have had. The bathrooms are actually clean and that seems to be a rarity with Chinese buffets, at least in my experience. The Mongolian grill is a nice touch. And the fried chicken wings are my favorite...
