The food and the service were as good as I have ever had. We will be back next time we are in Orlando!

Authentic Chinese Food
The atmosphere was very serene and the decor traditional Chinese. The cuts of meat used in the dishes were tender and tasty. The hot and sour soup was superb. The General Tsu Chicken and the Sweet and Sour Pork could have been hotter but was very tasty. It was prepared the traditional way with appropriate fruits and vegetables. Our waiter, Joe, was extremely attentive, bringing us more water and tea every time we drank some. The Chinese tea had a jasmine flavor to it. It was very refreshing. We look forward to our next visit.

Saturday Night Dinner
I dined here on a Saturday night with some out of town guests. I made reservations online ahead of time and we were seated right away when we arrived. The shrimp won ton soup was amazing. The lo mein was very good. Not too greasy which I find it can be in other Chinese restaurants. The shrimp dumplings were nothing spectacular though.

Always a great to go for Chinese
You can not go wrong with this place for Chinese. I has everything to satisfy the very picky eater. I have been going here for years and have never been disappointed. As a local, you can even ask the waiter to make something that is not in the menu. That is going well beyond the call to duty.

It was very busy at lunch but the staff went out of their way to accomodate the customers. There was even someone outside directing the overflowing parking and managed to get everyone parked. The server was motherly and friendly and apologized for the slower than usual service. due to Mother's Day. As it turned out, the food arrived promptly and was authentic and delicious.

Table for One
I came by myself on a buisness trip and made my reservation online. When I arrived my reservation was not showing on the computer and was offered the bar area to be served quicker. I really didn't want to eat at the bar especially since I had a reservation . The manager quickly came out and got me seated at a table immediately . It was a wonderful experience and the service was wonderful!

tourist area, great for locals!
In the heart of the tourist Orlando district, this is a true gem for locals. The food is authentic and fresh. Sushi is plentiful and fresh. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Classics and beyond
We came on a recommendation from a friend who'd eaten there the week before....so we gave it a try. We werent disappointed! The food was very good, thanks to the waiter for explaining some of the traditional 'Chinese home cooking' items...ask about the 'pork maw'! LOL The menu is varied and there is something on it that will appeal to everyone. Even with a wedding party in a nearby room, the atmosphere was quiet enough to speak normally to everyone at the table. The live traditional Chinese music was an added delight!

My husband and I were celebrating our 8th anniversary so we selected Ming Court. The server was extremely nice. This was our 3rd visits and we enjoyed it everytime.

My husband and I were in Orlando for a couple of relaxing days. We loved this place and will return when we are back in Florida. Service was fantastic, good was delicious. Of you want good American Chinese, you will
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for large parties
We had a party of 12, and I dont think we could have chosen a better place to go. There were many different meal options with a variety of costs. You could find an option for about any budget. The service was wonderful. I would higly recommend Mings any time you are near the Convention Center.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have eaten here several times love the food, service and atmosphere. A+ in quality of food, service and atmosphere!

Dim Sum Must Have Sum
Outside from where I am used to having Dim Sum this place is delicious, even though you must order your choices instead of choosing from the mobile cart. Food is awesome , price is reasonable, choices are a plenty.

Great for Group/ Anniversary Dinner
We had excellent service for our family celebrating the 60th anniversary dinner .We would recommend it to anyone wanting to impress your friends or clients with this special place.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ming Court is a great place to enjoy especially with friends. In addition to great food, there are terrific musicians that play the Chinese violin and another Chinese instrument. You can't believe the music is live!! The other attraction is their unbelievable collection of koi fish. you can feed the fish which is great for kids and adults to enjoy! We have been going there for over 20 years when we are in Orlando area.

A great place to eat
We have been eating here for at least tenyears when we are in Orlando. We have tried many dishes , and theywere all delicious!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was in Orlando for a conference. Craving chinese, we found Ming Court and after reading reviews, decided to give it a shot. Hot and Sour soup was tasty as well as our beef dish recommended by our waiter, who by the way was the best and if I could remember his name, I'd mention it here! KUDOS to him! He made our dining experience exceptional! People! Please tip your waiters well! Those that deserve more should get more!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall our family had a good time. Food was quite good. Tables were at decent distance from each other and one had a good feeling of personal privacy. Can be a nice family outing place, if Chinese is on the menu for dinner. Though on the pricey end. Atmosphere is very kids friendly.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thank you for a great meal
Very friendly, good value place.
Although we arrived an hour late they were happy to accomodate
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
My wife and I used to frequent Ming Court a lot before we had children. It was a pleasure returning after a couple of years. The food and service was as good as I remembered. I can't wait to go back and bring my two daughters.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food & ambience too.
Loved the authentic asian ambience. Very elegant and yet very family oriented. We enjoyed the food, ambiance, and the whole dining experience!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is an affordable above
This is an affordable above average Chinese restaurant with a great selection of appetizers and entrees. Food was of good, if not outstanding quality. We will certainly come back.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We specifically chose this
We specifically chose this restaurant to be a mini reunion with a visiting family member from another country because of out many dining experiences here over many years. The food was fantastic as always. Our server I felt was too rushed almost near impatient with taking our order and appetizers come one plate at a time for a group of 10, so that was not pleasing...but was compensated by the good food and ambiance and simply the company of family gathering so we let it slide.Another thing when I checked in for our table reservation I asked about the on-line discount of 10% and I was told NO because I made the reservation with Open Table and not through them. That I felt cheated.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there 3 nights in one
Went there 3 nights in one week.Has authentic chinese dishes.Good food.Great location on International Drive. I have been going there over ten years everytime I go to Orlando. It is one of the best Chinese places in Orlando.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ming Courts was Great
Over our two weeks stay we ate twice at Mings and on both occasions the food was excellent and they ensured that they looked after us with a high level of service, without being pushy or intrusive.
Would certainly eat there again and recommend to friends who are going to Orlando.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful, relaxed setting.

A Tasty Choice
The meal was great. Everything was prepared fresh and seasoned to my liking. The staff was friendly and professional. I enjoyed my experiecne.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was in Orlando hoping to fine a great place to eat. I found this place in the hotel mag, and I tell you, it was one of the best resturants I have ever been too. It was outstanding!!!! Make sure you feed the fish! Oh please try the Volcano Drink. :-)

Anniversary dinner delight
I loved the refined relaxed element of the restaurant. Casual dress allowable.. Our waiter was the best; he was super fast and efficient. I liked that he gave us our time to get through courses, and not just bring everything at once. It was raining hard when we arrived, so to get out of the rain, they seated up earlier than our reservation time, which was awesome. I had a pomegranate mixed drink, it was yummy. the summer roll appetizer was yummy and fresh. The dragon roll was to die for and the rainbow roll was okay, good taste, but seemed like rice was a big filler. The conch nigiri was, well, interesting. At least now I can say that I've had it. Entrees were awesome. The flaming wok and the 8 treasure roast duck were ordered.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service,.great Dim-Sum!
We have been eating at Ming Court for many years now and the service, staff and food all have remained consistently good! Impressive considering the usual transitory history concerning restaurants, usually!! We have recommended Ming Court to our friends and family, all who still frequent there still......despite driving from other surrounding cities to do so.....just can't beat their Dim-Sum either!!!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for the Magical Dining Menu-it was fantastic! My boyfriend had sushi and I had filet mignon with mushrooms and peppers. We also got an assortment of appetizers for magical dining. All the food was great. We had a really nice server and a great table looking at the koi pond. The koi pond has some amazing fish which we had fun feeding after eating. Highly recommended!!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chinese food with Ambiance
We visit each time we go to Orlando. Easy location, great ambiance with a serious koy pond and live Chinese music. Kids meals have nice portions. The food is good and the place is kid friendly. Definitely recommend.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was pleasantly surprised by Ming Palace. Much better Chinese food than one would expect on I-blvd Orlando. Some trouble getting seated and getting a server, but food delicious. My guest had basal beef that come in its own little wok. I had Kung pap chicken. Tasty but a bit bland even though I asked for it to come spicy hot. This was a great lunch choice for us.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Consistently good for years!
We have dined at Ming Court for many years, although it is a few hours from us. The food and service are the main reasons we enjoy dining there. Dim Sum and Sushi are excellent and the VIP membership is an added perk to save money with each dine! :)
They take great care of their customer, with very attentive service, no matter how busy. We like to have family gatherings but the Romantic scene to ask for is a small window view table seating. Our grandkids love the Koi fish ponds, and feeding the always hungry fish too. Beautiful setting either in the recessed dining area or the floor/window view level.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the better Chinese Choices
This was our second time at Ming Court while visiting Orlando. This restaurant remains a solidly consistent choice for good Chinese in a pretty garden setting. We always go for the Peking Duck and it did not dissapoint. They carve it table side which adds to the enjoyment. The usual side dishes of spring rolls, fried rice, shashimi, also quite tasty.
Good wine selection at reasonable prices. We sat in one of the rotundas overlooking the gardens and pond filled with carp.
We will always return to this location.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
These is no shortage of restaurants - even for Asian fare on the Orlando strip but Ming Court outshines them all. The decor, authentic live music and the vastness of the menu selections makes this place another 'destiation' to put on your todo list
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best chinese food outside new york
The service was awesome! The food , all of it , was delicious! The best Chinese food expirience outside of Chinatown! Highly recommended!

50 th anniversery
We were in Orlando celebrating our 50th Anniversary. We decided Chinese for dinner one night and were lucky we found Ming Court. The restaurant was magnificent. The service and food were outstanding. Definitely would return and also recommend to our friends.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall great experience.
Overall great experience. Wonderful service. As always, great food and atmosphere :)
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good Chinese Food
We have traveled to China and really enjoy the food there. Ming Court's food was closer to real Chinese food rather than the usual Americanized Chinese food available in this country. Everything we had was excellent - three meals and three appetizers - all really good. The service was excellent as well. We can't wait to go again!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
great chinese in Orlando
For a great Chinese food cuisine, visit MIng Court, the best local place in Orlando near convention center. Always fresh ingredients prepare to the western taste.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic Oriental Food
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.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Been going for years, the servers are all very attentive, the manager is always around....the Dim Sum and the rest too are the best!!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sushi a must!
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.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
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.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is our favorite Chinese restaurant anywhere, and one of the reasons we visit Orlando so often!
