    We've been eating annually for 12 years at Ming Court when we are in Orlando for business. Sometimes the servers seem "distracted", but the food is phenomenal and sushi excellent. Fresh Fresh Fresh. Would get 5 stars if the servers more attentive, but don't let this MINOR comment stop you.

    Soggy LoMein and flavorless scallion pancakes? The lobster in ginger and scallion was delicious but that was it. Very limited apps and that's our favorite part.

    We love Chinese food and were looking for something different than take out or drive thru. We had an amazing server and the food was excellent. I recommend the flaming volcano drink for 2 it was alot of fun. Next time we are in the Orlando area we will be sure to make this one of our spots.

    Location great near Sea World and Orange County convention center. Nice ambiance, energetic staff, food is fair to below average. I had veggie spring rolls, wonton soup, and Kung Pao Chicken. The spring rolls were over cooked, the wonton soup was decent, and the kung pao chicken was extremely bland with little flavor....even PF Chang's is far better and its not a tier 1 Chinese restaurant.

    Where we live, in Sarasota DL, good Chinese food is a rarity. A friend had told us about Ming Court, so we made sure to plan a visit. If we had more time in Orlando, we would have come back a 2nd time. The food is well-prepared 'traditional' Chinese food. Not ground-breaking or fusion; just tasty, not greasy renditions of everything we ordered. LOVED it! And the ambience is lovely.

    Me and my partner wanted Chinese food while we were at Disney for our holiday. Having googled the area we found this one. The service didn't get off to a great start as our waiter was serving someone else this point was ok but why the person showing us to our table couldn't give us a menu to look at while waiting I don't know. Once our waiter was done with the other guests he came and gave us a menu and didn't ask if we wanted a drink He then came back to take drinks order and food order. And as quick as a flash he came back with drinks and food Now I know Chinese is the original fast food but it looked and tasted like it was made in bulk

    Once again we dined at Ming Court for their Dim-Sum, and as always it was great. We noticed there were new items added, and tried the Pork Pancakes, with sauce, and we both loved them! Always take left-overs for snacking!! Service was wonderful and waiter was very attentive!

    My husband and I hadn't dined at Ming Court for over a decade...even before we moved to Miami. I remembered it fondly and decided to give the Magical Dining menu a try this past Saturday night. Let's just say my last drive through Panda Express was better Chinese food and more authentic. The atmosphere is pleasing and the service is very good. But don't go there for outstanding Chinese food.

    Hands down the best Chinese food in Orlando and then some. From steamed shrimp dumplings to the crunchy roll sushi, it is the best. And I doubt any Chinese restaurant can top the Seven Treasure Duck entrée. Love this place.

    Two course meal with wine ,starter arrived before first sip of wine the whole dining experience lasted 35 mins . Food was cold after 3-4 mins as air-con was on at full pelt. Place lacked atmosphere, server was bordering on hostile and every 5 mins she was at the table to see if we were finished. Will not be recommending this place to anyone travelling to Orlando, ideal if you wanted to get next I - ride trolley I'm sure you would make it.

    We had a great time. They have changed the menu somewhat. Not as good as I remember. Love going on Sunday for dim sum. Their fried rice was tasteless, cashew chicken was oily; however the beef and broccoli was delicious. Would definitely go back and give it another try.

    This is a tourist restaurant restaurant on I-Drive - all the tables were set with spoons, knives and forks. When we asked for chop sticks we got kind of a look and the chopsticks were those cheap wooden ones you struggle to open. It is overpriced (especially for young families). It has reasonable food and decent, but not excellent service. On a night where the restaurant was not busy we struggled to get refills of water. The roast duck was the best thing we ate. We ordered three appetizers: pan fried pork dumplings, bar-b-q pork buns, and steamed shrimp dumplings. The steamed shrimp dumplings were fine, but one of the pork dumplings was cold inside. All the desserts were american.

    Ming Court presents a taste of China from the entranceway koi pond, live music, the dragon suspended from the ceiling in the main dining room, the colorful artwork, the wonderful service, and the food. My family has been dining at the Ming Court for years. The menu and the chefs have changed, but the ambiance and the service continue to rise well above the chain restaurants along International Drive. It is our tradition to add the words "in bed" at the end of our cookie fortune, so we always end the evening laughing.

    Ming Court has been around for years. The food is simply amazing. Eight Treasure Roast Duck (with duck, calamari, shrimp and scallops) is awesome. The Crunchy Sushi Roll is unmatched. Waiters are always polite and helpful. The only down side is that it is a tourist dinner stop. That said, I never hesitiate to go.

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.

    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.
