    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
