Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Our waiter was not attentive. We had to ask several times for drinks. He came back after a break wreaking of cigarette smoke. The shrimp in my shrimp fried rice was tiny frozen shrimp you could buy at Walmart. Our waiter did not ask nor think to split the check, though there were clearly two couples sitting at the table. We have no intention of going back."

  • "Our waiter was very courteous and attentive. Food came out pretty quick and was delicious! It was really romantic even at 5 PM. If we're in Orlando again, we'll definitely be back."

  • "We were seated by a huge window, overlooking the Koy pound. The service was excellent. The ambience, perfect. We had the Enchanted Dinner which included scallops (tender and made perfectly), Shrimp (scrumpciously coated and served in a sweet sauce), chunks of beef (marinated in a ginger soy sauce and a tad tough), steamed broccoli, and fried rice (with peas, bacon, and egg and quite tasteless) As this was Valentine's Day the restaurant served a heart-shaped cake, frosted and coated with shaved chocolate that was wonderful. The price was reasonable. Overall the experience was very good, though, coming from the Boston area, we're used to Chinese food that has a more flavor."

  • "The place was quite, perfect for a conversation. The food we ordered was really good, except it was too much for two people. The waiter was good except for the fact that he didn't inform us about the Valentine's Day Special after we made our orders"

  • "I've visited Ming Court multiple times since it first opened in 1989 and I'm happy to say that it's still consistently good. A very nice waiter named Brian took care of us and delivered the customary friendly and knowledgeable service we've come to expect at this restaurant. The roasted duck was crispy on the outside, tender inside and very tasty. We ordered jumbo prawns with honey and cashews for the first time and loved it (obviously, you must like sweet dishes to enjoy this one). Overall, another great meal at Ming Court."

  • "Good food, maybe a touch on the sweet side. Service was good and friendly. Would be good to see more fishes from Hunan and Szechuan province."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "While many dishes were Chinese, many were a mix of Japanese, Vietnamese with a dash of American. I guess when you are in Orlando you play to a wide audience. Many of the dishes were tasteless and could have used a wok smoked stir. Maybe I'll be surprised next time."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We have always dined at this restaurant during our stay- almost every year, in Orlando for the past 20 yrs or so--American College of Surgeons meetings, AAPI meetings or family vacation. Now we have a Condo, to spend our winter. Brought other friends, who also thanked us for introducing this restaurant. These friends have visited again by themselves. Seafood soup was very good--rather outstanding. Reception at the front desk was good."

  • "Ming Court is a throwback to the days of Chinese restaurants with white table cloths. It was a breath of fresh air to dine at Ming Court. In a world where most Chinese restaurants are located in small strip malls, and serve the meals on styrafoam plates, Ming Court provided an excellent meal, with terrific service at a reasonable price. What a contrast to the buffets! We will make it a routine spot on our trips to Orlando."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "Don't miss Orlando's best Sushi. The rest of the meal fantastic too. We come here every year when we are in town, and never disappointing. Only negative was no red wine glasses for an expensive bottle of wine, and no brandy snifter with a brandy aperatif. And the server didn't seem to care."

  • "I have been a patron for over 10 years now and never the food and service never disappoints. Live oriental music, vast menue, outstanding servixce makes this a pleasurable experience."
