Went to The Ming for the first time for a colleagues farewell dinner and for transparency should add I am not an experienced judge of Chinese food so cant speak to authenticity or make particularly valid comparisons - The Ming is well presented, the staff seemed pleased to have us with them (by no means guaranteed in Penrith). For ease... More

We attended here for Sunday lunch yum cha. The food was good and the staff very accommodating and friendly, smiles all around. The service was good, the prices reasonable, and the place clean and well decorated. It seems traditional yum cha service with its carts has been done away with in preference for a system of ordering cards that explain... More

Dined on a Tuesday night which was busy but not unexpected. The service was not very good, wait staff were rude, abrupt and unhelpful. Manager doesn't show you to your table, he finds a table then stands and waves and yells for you to come over. Drink waiter took order while we were just starting to be sitted and never... More

Lucky we booked a table or we would still be waiting. We ate on Saturday night at 6.30pm and the place was busy, with a constant stream of diners waiting in the queue. There was not enough staff, and we didn't have our order taken until almost 7.15pm, and then we had to flag down the wait staff. The entree's... More

Have visited 3 times in last 2 months for various special occasions, twice with groups of 12, once with 6 people. Each time the food was extraordinarily tender, fast and fresh. Service was super efficient. Used plates quickly removed and drinks were offered on a regular basis. Twice we were in private rooms which allowed for private conversation. Staff were... More

One would expect that a Chinese Restuarant connected with a major leagues club would be of a fairly high calibre. It was very disappointing. We ordered honey king prawns and cashew chicken and found it was no better than food court quality. Don't let me discourage you, but we won't be eating there again as there are far better alternatives.

Was great for me to eat here as they appear to cook meals as required so I could have garlic left out of my meal. For me that is a reason to like this place. Staff were pleasant, dressed neatly and the meal was delicious. I can not fault this restaurant at all.

The service is like a military operation, with staff communicating via ear mikes like the FBI. The food however is low end Australianised Chinese. We went there on a Friday and the restaurant was almost empty. The rest of the Panthers club was packed full, so it appears the locals know to avoid the place. It's also very over priced.

Went here on a Wednesday for lunch with 12 people. The staff rearranged the seating so we could all sit at one large round table. I had the curried prawns with fried rice at $14 and couldn't fault it. Everyone who had sweet and sour prawns raved about theirs. The mongolian lamb wasn't to most peoples liking as they thought...
