Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant was so dark we had to read the menus by light of our phones. The food was barely edible and both food and wine overpriced. I can't recommend this place to anyone."

  • "This was about my fifth time to this restaurant. The food has always been excellent! The staff are very warm and friendly. The menu and atmosphere are kind of "exotic" in a very good way. The menu is quite extensive, and includes dishes ranging from mild to hot and spicy. There are a couple of bowls with additional sauces on the side (one of which is very spicy!) so you can "kick it up a notch" on any dish if you would like. The drink selection is very extensive. I found the prices quite reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food, service and atmosphere. We are never able to finish our meal, and take the rest home for a nice lunch the next day!"

  • "I'm a frequent Mehndi diner and have been at Ming II quite a few times but found Ming II to be somewhat inconsistent- something we never experienced at Mehndi That certainly wasn't the case this past week- just a perfect meal. Service was excellent as usual and the bar is always top notch; great cocktails and a very good wine list. But it was really the 4 dishes we shared that were so perfect. The vegetable dumplings, Shrimp in Green Curry, the Oriental Chicken and the vegetable Hakka noodles were all done perfectly. The surprise was the oriental chicken- perfectly balanced chicken and cauliflower ; a real case of the potentially mundane elevated to an unexpected level Sometimes that's what it is all about. "

  • "Restaurant is much too dim; when asked to bring up lighting staff was accommodating stating manager wants it to be dim. I would not go back."

  • "We had an unfortunate experience at Ming 2....The food and the service were so bad - I don't think I've ever had a worse experience. Drinks didn't come out for the table. Apps and mains all at once. My shrimp green curry tasted like peanut butter; it was so bad that I didn't eat! :(("

  • "Good food. Service not so good. several parties going on. no one filled water. took average of 15 minutes to get drinks. gave me wrong drink I abd wrong food. made us move in the middle of our meal to make room for large party. they definitely need more staff to help. no one checked on us so I could let them know I ahad wromg meal. my friend had to get up out of her seat to ask for water for out table. I will ask next time if there are large parties going on and will avoid those nights."

  • "The menu has a lot of choices for appetizers and entrees. All the dishes look delicious. I had the Kung Pao chicken, and it had a terrific sweet chili sauce that lightly coated the chicken. Great food and fantastic service, too boot! I love this place."

  • "Was looking for somewhere "different" to take my wife for her birthday. Food: the menu says "pan Asian" which it is - think Indian inspired dishes/flavors but prepared in a more upscale, Chinese way. All of our dishes were well prepared (shrimp, lamb, chicken) - definitely not something you'd cook at home or get a the local take out. Entree portions are decent but not huge and range in price from $15-$22. FYI - you purchase rice separately. Room: very nice, interesting space. Curved room, with wood on the walls. Comfortable lighting with subtle music in the background. Not a super big place, so it feels cozy. In the end - it was a pleasant dining experience with good food and service. I would go again."

  • "Although our server was good, our experience was not. Food was either mediocre or so spicy it was uneatable. All this in a room that felt like a dark tomb with loud techno music playing. We won't be back."

  • "If you're looking for a nicer upscale place for Asian cuisine then Ming II is a good choice. It has a great atmosphere, service and wide bar selection that is lacking from most Chinese, Japanese or Thai food restaurants. It's warm and inviting and doesn't have that intense Asian decor and vibe that most places have. There is a wide variety of Asian dishes so you don't feel locked into a particular category. The food was pretty good for what it was but it didn't blow me away and wasn't significantly better than what you'd get at any good Asian restaurant. The biggest difference is the variety, service, atmosphere and bar selection which really make it a standout place to go. Highly recommended for a date night out."

  • "I've been dining at Ming II and Mehndi since we've moved into town in 2012 and have introduced many people to these fine restaurants. Ming, Mendhi and their lounge SM23 are by far the best places to go to in Morristown. It's such a unique experience since the restaurant and lounge are all interconnected. The staff are super and very personable. It's a must go to place here in Morristown!"

  • "When I checked out the menu on-line, I thought Ming II was an Asian Fusion restaurant inspired by Chinese dishes, but it was more like an Indian restaurant, which I wouldn't have minded if the food was good. The food was barely mediocre. We didn't finish anything we ordered. The papaya salad was bland. The calamari appetizer was soggy and overloaded with onions. I ordered pancake duck, and thought the duck was dry with no flavor. My boyfriend ordered shrimp with lemon garlic butter. The sauce was pretty good but the shrimp was mostly soggy batter and we were only able to eat two pieces. We are not going back."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful, a cozy atmosphere accented by bursts of color. Our waiter was very good. It seemed unusually busy for a Monday when we went but the service was excellent all the same. The food is amazing. If you're sensitive to spice, pay attention to the indicators on the menu, they don't joke around. I highly recommend the cauliflower Manchurian appetizer, it's the best thing I've eaten in a while."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "One word......Exceptional My dinning experience at Ming II always surpass all my expectations from appetizers to dessert, the drinks are top of the line, I only drink on special occasions, my favorite, chocolate martini Brought relatives visiting for dinner, they were raving about the ambience, the food, the whole experiencing for them was 'one to remember, a great end to the year!'"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We found the layout of Ming II and it's sister operation confusing and unusual, since 3 different restaurants share a common reception area and all are buried in the middle of a empty convention center. The staff appears to be as confused as the guests by this layout, and they have poor habits and communications with each other and the restaurants. The food was reasonably good, mostly like hotel restaurant fare. Portions were small, despite previous reviewers comments. Overall an underwhelming experience."

  • "I chose this restaurant based on the Zagat review, which was high. Overall, I wasn't impressed. The food was standard and the service was slow. It was also a little hard to find because it is located in the Hyatt building and very small inside. I've had a better experience at PF Changs."

  • "Highly recommended for the food. Great taste with spices. Great ambiance for dinner with friends."

  • "Regular nice place with great service. Noise level was much higher than usual. Big parties came. All tables full. Unable to hear each other speaking. The meal choice was much to much spicy and more fried this time. Other times did not request mild. Next time we will try something new."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Noise was REALLY loud. The service was HORRIBLE! We asked a number of questions, and he had to go back severeal times to go ask someone. Drinks took 10 minutes. Second round of soda's took another 10 minutes. They charged us $12.00 for 4 sodas! The waiter did tell us this was his 3rd week on the job, but the restaurant needs to train these people. Food was very good, and although loud, I'm okay with that too. But the experience wasn't as enjoyable as it should have been given the poor service, and feeling that I'm being taken advantage of with $3.00 sodas with no re-fills. Not sure if I'd go back. Very poor service, and $3 sodas that don't include re-fills, is RIDICULOUS."

  • "We have been there twice and everytime we went food was consitently great espl for vegetarians like us where we normally have less options , we enjoy this place. Ambience is great and quiet unlike most restaurants whcih are very noisy. Only thing i would have liked is that while reserving this i mentioned its my husband's birthday . it would have been nice to geta complimentary birthday dessert to make the occasion special. In NYC most restuarnts do that ! Anyways hope they read this and take action ."

  • "We started out with the Cauliflower Manchurian, Asian Calamari and Merlot. The Cauliflower was like nothing I’ve ever had. It was deep-fried without being in the least bit greasy and succulent-very unlike Cauliflower! I’m not usually into deep-fried but this I recommend. The Calamari came with three different dipping sauces two of which we loved and it was tender, not chewy, as it can get if you cook it two seconds too long. It was perfectly done. I asked our Waiter for a lamb suggestion and he said the Lamb Massaman was for me. I loved the scent of coconut milk and the taste was wonderful. My S.O. had the Seafood casserole and raved about it. Raved. I tasted it-it was wonderful. I also had a pepper and pinneapple martini-YUM!"

  • "I love this restaurant (and also its sister restaurant Mendhi ). The cocktails are creative and outstanding! I look forward to having the spicy coriander soup every time I come. The food quality and preparation is top notch. A little pricey but.....when the food is this good I do not mind paying for it. The entire dining experience is excellent."

  • "Spicy if you want, but they will adapt for less heat if you want. Mostly shrimp and chicken dishes; only a few beef dishes, lots of vegetarian options. Took our teenagers and did not feel out of place. Really good specialty drinks and different flavors. The pan-Asian cuisine is very good. Our service was quick yet not hovering or pushy. I would go back with a group of adults or on a date night."
    Dined on 8/29/2013
  • "I had been to Mendhi - the next door Indian restaurant, but not Ming II. We had a great meal. The food is "Pan-Asian" - not from any single country, so there are a lot of unusual choices. We obviously didn't need a reservation at 6:00 on a Saturday night...they were empty when we go there, although were filling up when we left. They were in the midst of dealing with an unsatisfied take-out customer when we arrived, so they were a little inattentive at first - and neglected to check us in, so I got a "why didn't you show up" email from Open Table, which is annoying."

  • "At 6 pm we were the first people in the restaurant. Our waiter had to be new, or else poorly trained. Ordered a bottle of white wine. Took forever to get it, & it was room temperature. But other than that, the rest of our meal was very good and well served."

  • "We had heard very good things about the restaurant. Went for lunch, only two tables in the dining room. Service was slow and the waiter had a problem in understanding our order. The food was really salty - no flavours. We left everything and the waiter did not even ask us once if there was an issue with the food....The bill came with 18% gratuity added on it....i dont mind paying 18% if the service is good. But this is gauging and don't appreciate auto grat for bad food and service....."
    Dined on 6/27/2013
  • "I have always enjoyed coming to this restaurant, but this time was surprised by the automatic addition of an 18% gratuity for a party of 4. This is highly unusual and while it may have been stated somewhere, and yes, the check did have this on, initially we did not notice and were about to add the tip, when we noticed it. I understand adding gratuity for a large party, but not for 4 people. That was a little disappointing. The waiter could also have mentioned this (and maybe should have) either at the beginning of the evening or when handing us the check. Otherwise, the food, as always was very good."
