Diner Reviews
  • "Service was excellent, unfortunately the food was extremely disappointing. Not to mention overpriced which I don't mind paying if the food is worth it."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "THE RESTAURANT WAS VERY NICELY SET UP...THE STAFF WAS MORE THAN ACCOMMONDATING. THE CHOICE OF FOOD WAS PHENOMANAL & VERY DELICIOUS...I SIGNED UP FOR THE VIP PROGRAM BECAUSE I WILL BE RETURNING SOON"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Unlike most of the restaurants along International Drive, Ming Court isn't a chain. It's beautiful, it offers a limited Dim Sum menu weekdays, and a large and exotic Dim Sum menu weekends. It's non-Dim Sum lunch menu includes both mundane and more unusual dishes at reasonable prices . . . prepared with the highest quality ingredients and cooked with unusual skill. I stop by every time I'm in Orlando."

  • "Found this place online and booked it as a surprise for the girlfriend as she loves sushi and seafood and we hadn't had it all week we had been in Florida. When we arrived I was too surprised at how nice and authentic the place looked and the food and service was 10/10. This place is one not to miss if your only in the area for a short time."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "What a great place. The restaurant decor and surrounding landscape is very interesting and even has tiny bridge over Koi pond :) Service was a little slow, but the food was great. With such a huge menu to try, we plan on visiting many, many more times"

  • "Once again dining at Ming Court was extra special. I booked a table for two as an anniversary treat for my wife and I and we were not disappointed. The food was splendid, hot, well served and an excellent presentation. The young Lady who served us could not have been nicer! She even arranged for a complimentary dessert to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary :) We always try to go to Ming Court for at least one meal when we are in Orlando, and will continue to do so in the future. Be sure to take time to watch and feed the Koi carp in their surround pond, they are magnificent!"

    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Every time we are in the Orlando area, Ming Court is a must visit restaurant. It's where the locals go; and that's always the best recommendation. Enjoy! Their Volcano Roll is the best. "

  • "Great restaurant with vast menu and very good service. Located in a great location."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "This was our first visit and we loved every minute of our visit. From the awesome koi ponds to the dessert every moment was amazing. The service can't be beat either. Our server was there the minute our drinks were half full, filling them. He had everything before we could ask. We were there to celebrate my birthday and I can tell you we will be back again for a date night. The look and feel of the restaurant made us feel like we were somewhere else entirely. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We've been coming for many years but the last few it has been declining, we won't be back. "
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "I have lived in Orlando for many years and yet never visited Ming Court. I think I was expecting some touristy Chinese restaurant so I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food, the presentation, the surroundings and the attentive staff. All in all a very pleasant evening and I will. Ensure to return."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Love the restaurant. Food is good, and I like to relax and forget I'm in the heart of Orlando. It has wall to wall windows that look out on to private patio with a koi pond, and they have live entertainment playing chinese instruments. Very relaxing!!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant with a pond and large carp swimming around. Kids enjoyed the view and very close to hotels. Food was very good and we shared the dishes family style. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for Chinese food in Orlando."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The decor at Ming Court is very nice, if not a bit over the top in some ways. The service was prompt and attentive. Ming Court offers authentic Chinese food, American-nese food, and sushi. My party opted for the surrounding Chinese food. We had an appetizer platter, soup, and five or six dishes to share. Everything was excellent."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "The food and service were great. The decor was on point with Chinese culture. Live, cultural music was a huge plus as were the koi ponds. It's a bit strange seeing Japanese food on the menu, but it's understandable since they are located on I-drive, in a heavily touristy area."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Upon the suggestion of a friend from Boca Raton who enjoyed a tofu dish at Ming Court, we tried the restaurant for dinner while in Orlando for a conference. We were pleasantly surprised by the ehru & zheng musicians providing lovely ambiance along with the well-prepared Chinese food. The eggplant with garlic sauce and golden calamari appetizers and delicious scallop sizzling platter were a perfect light dinner for my husband and me. We did not have time to return another day for dim sum but would have if we could have!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "A family reunion in Orlando was highlighted by personal service with the chef catering to our group. The cuisine was authentic, the service exemplary, and the atmosphere traditional. I look forward to returning on my next conference at the Orlando Convention Center."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We reserved a table thru open table and got to the restaurant and had to wait. Then we waited awhile until a waiter decided to come over. We asked for tea ( which in all other Chinese restaurants is complimentary ). Not here. $1.50 a person and it wasn't even drinkable. One tea bag for a pot of tea. Terrible. Food was good but had to pay extra for fried rice. We finished dinner got our check and were never offered dessert. Everyone around us were presented with a beautiful dessert tray. Not us. To say the least...not impressed."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This was a wonderful restaurant, whose waitress even entertained my screaming toddler and calmed her down while providing excellent service to our group. The food was amazing. Even though the exterior was a bit thematic/kitschy, it was spacious and clean on the inside. The music provided that evening sounded ilke a recording but was--in fact--live. If I ever end up back in the Orlando area, I would definitely eat here again!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Searching for a good Asian resturant and we found this on your site. It was all that, from the Koi pond to the wonderful live authentic music. Service was excellent, wonderful food, great atmosphere and superb drinks. Plenty of help to make your experience an enjoyable one."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "We ordered Scallion Pancake, Peking Duck, Ma Pa Tofu and Salt/Spicy Shrimp/Scallop/Calamari Combination. The portions were small, food was not flavorful and pancakes were greasy. The ambience was nice and our server was very friendly."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Entrance is fantastic - feed the koi- ambiance was terrific - waiters were excellent but not overbearing - they were very helpful in helping to select dishes - appetizers were relatively small and quite pricey - our table of four got one of the dishes for four which was excellent - we had the all chicken dish - desserts were delicious - overall would highly recommend."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Went on a date with my husband, Ming Court is so pretty inside and out which was the main reason for wanting to try it. The servers were so helpful and courteous, that made the dining experience much better for me."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Been going here for years.. always great food and service"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Great atmosphere however quality of food and service does not match. Staff is very nice but not prompt with service. Food is ok but certainly not any better or even as good as most any fast food chinese business in a mall. Far to high cost for what you get. Go with low expectations and you will not be disappointed."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We had a large party and the Dim Sum was great, especially the Baked Pork Buns and Baked Egg Custard, which were freshly made. The Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaf was pretty good too."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food is awesome with lots to choose from. A definite if you like chinese food and/or want to explore new things. However, the service is pretty slow - I think there was only one waitress for the whole restaurant. Once we placed the order, the food did come out quickly, but getting drinks and ordering took some time. Went here for a business lunch which I am not sure I would recommend this place for. Again, everyone loved the food especially the basil garlic chicken served in a little heated wok pan, but it was embarassing about the slowness. All that said, I can tell you every time I am in orlando I try to go here if only for the shrimp stuffed eggplant and fried tofu."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Highly recommend as a location close to the convention center where you can hear and have a conversation while enjoying an upscale Asian menu in a beautiful setting."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "This was a very nice restaurant for conducting a business lunch meeting. Service was very good and waiter paid close attention to our individual needs, as well as offered great insight into dishes we were unfamiliar with. Great selection of Chinese dishes, as well as amazing looking sushi/sashimi offerings. The only issue was that the Szechuan dish I ordered wasn't spicy at all, which was disappointing. Would highly recommend this local landmark, both for its ambiance and the quality of the food."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Better than most of the International Drive Resturants. Close to Convention Center and can easily handle large groups. Good good."
