Ming Court is an Asian dim sum restaurant and sushi bar with an impressive interior where dragons can be seen hanging from the roof with live music playing in the background. Ming Court serves traditional family-style cuisines in which its dim sum, sushi selection and wok & char-grill dishes are the stand outs. The restaurant is surrounded by koi pond and gardens on all sides, providing the patrons a beautiful view as they dine here.
Its well-known dishes include Korean BBQ beef, steamed ribs, golden calamari, Buddha delights, shredded pepper steak and Florida orange beef. Ming Court's sushi and sashimi selection includes nearly 34 offerings for patrons to choose from.
We met up with a friend who was staying at a nearby hotel. It was a real treat as we had forgotten just how good it is. When we first moved to Orlando 20+ years ago this was the only good Chinese restaurant. We now have plenty of local good Chinese restaurants so we hadn't been there in a while. We will put this back in our lists of restaurants and be back soon.
We have eaten here three times this year and absolutely love it. The food is excellent and service very attentive This past visit we were seatrd in a lovely glassed in area overlooking a pond with fish swimming around. Very romantic.
My husband ordered a complete meal that included soup, spring rolls, and dessert. Main course was crispy pork, rice and fresh broccoli. I ordered scallops that came in a flaming wok with seven vegetables in a sauce. Included a bowl of rice. I ordered Tiramisu for dessert. It is the best I have ever eaten.
Definitely will go back and highly recommend it. Enjoy!!
Chinese food was good, the sushi was only fair. Would probably only recommend for Chinese food.
We go here every time we come to Orlando for the dim sum. It is always wonderful and always an authentic experience.
Lovely for a family dinner or a date night
Finding good dim sum on Hong Kong, NY, or LA isn't too difficult. Finding it in Florida is a while different challenge. We ran a half marathon this weekend and my girlfriend wanted to celebrate with dim sum. I took her to Ming Court and she was very happy. The ambience is nice, we were seated by the pond, but it looked like most every table had a nice view. The service was more like what one expects in China than here in the States, but our waitress was very good once I figured that out. The food was fast and very good. A little pricey but it could have been much worse on I-Drive with the captive tourist audience. We started with pork buns, then shrimp and chive dumplings, a seaweed and peanut salad that was served cold, Chinese broccoli, and roast duck. We finished with sesame seed balls which were a little different than we are used to, but still tasty. Overall we were very happy with our meal and I'm sure we'll be back for dim sum again soon!
pork mu shu excellent. our server was very attentive
The server didn't advertise that one of the plates ordered was extremely spicy! I complain about that and she didn't like it!
I called the manager and explained the situation for him!
I'm tourist from Brazil and when I'm in Orlando I go there for dinner!
The food is great but this time I didn't have luck with the server!
While the service was fast, fast is not always what you want in a restaurant of this type. Food was servered fast and hot but had too much sauce. The cocktail I ordered was good but after I finished it the empty glass set on the table with no offer of a 2nd. After the server took away the still full plates we were never asked why we left so much, if we wanted to take it to go or if we wanted dessert. I assure you our displeasure was an poo an in our tip.
We ate here for Valentines Day and as usual they did not disappoint. The service is always great and the food is well prepared. Nobody does chicken chow mein or lemon tangereen chicken like they do. The shrimp wonton soup is outstanding.
our special guests like the food and were happy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
This was our second time at Ming Court. The food and service was excellent both times. Lovely decor and authentic instrumental music. Koi fish in the pond rounds out the ambiance.
Poor quality food
My girlfriend and I had dinner here. The food was pretty good...we had sushi/sashimi...since we were in FL, I was expecting much better quality fish than what we get in our land-locked state..this did not happen.
Ambience was a bit better...they had people playing traditional instruments...there were a bunch of loud New York/New Jersey type people throughout the restaurant that had a negative impact on the mood but its not the restaurants fault.
Our waiter was a bit pushy...like he was in a hurry to get us out so they could get the next round of "cattle" through...there was also a bit of a language barrier.
It was nice that there was free parking at the restaurant but keep in mind that it's on a busy road.
I would suggest this place for lunch...not so much for dinner. It was also a bit overpriced(like most things in the area)...just taking their part of the tourist's dollars. Can't blame them for that.
Very impressive building for a Chinese restaurant. Food was about on par with what you would expect with this type of restaurant. Being on the I Drive section of Orlando, it has a theatrical appearance in terms of the building
