Our first visit. Many choices on a very nice menu including duck and lamb. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The service was great. And the bar was terrific. We will be back.

Everything was excellent! Service was personable and efficient. Ambience is unique and beautiful.

Trying to get in shape for summer so on our servers suggestions, We ordered papaya salad and lettuce wraps with chicken as apps . For entrees we ordered steamed whole fish in ginger sauce and shrimp in Thai basil paired with their organic pinot noir for me and organic pinot Grigio for my friend. Everything was pure, flavourful and delicious!

Menu is huge so I would suggest letting your server know what you are looking for and trust their suggestions. They definitely know what they are doing!
Parking in the underneath garage is validated. Highly recommend this beautiful restaurant for a great experience!

Quality is down. The place, ambience and food wasn't great although I remember it being great.

The food tasted alike. All seemed to taste alike, oily, unhealthy and fried. We ordered a Chilli lamb, Gobi manchurian and a shrimp dish. Nothing great.

Ambience was ok. It was loud which I understand but it just seemed noisy with doors banging and waiters going around. The table was dirty and the menu had food on it.

I won't go here again

Food was bland and could have had little more flavor and taste. Kids were ok with it.
Roti canai was awesome. The Basil fried rice had no flavor of Basil even though it seemed to be loaded with Basil.
Overall was ok. Next time I would have to ask them to raise the spice level to make it taste better.Good Ambience.

Ming is one of my favorite restaurants especially for special occasions like valentines or anniversaries. Love the food, service and vegetarian options! Big fan of indo-Chinese and Ming gets it bang on right! Very flavorful and well made dishes. Can go again and again and again!

Very disappointed in the food. I have been to Ming before and Ming II as well. I ordered the fried shrimp which tasted like they had been refried. I also ordered the sea bass which was definitely refried. In fact, the batter was so thick, I could barely cut and chew through it. The service was poor, but it was Valentine's day so, I guess that is to be expected. Will not return.

5 of us who work together went here for Valentine’s Day. The server was very attentive, the food service was quick and efficient, and we had plenty to eat. The cauliflower appetizer was amazing! The portions are large so be sure to share your dishes

We really enjoyed our meal at Ming II. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. I especially loved the cauliflower appetizer. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass too. The only suggestion I have is that they switch from styrofoam takeout containers to those that can be recycled.

Dined here this past weekend for NYE and the food was absolutely amazing but I don’t know if the heat was broken or what was going on but it was absolutely freezing in the restaurant and it made the whole experience unbearable. As soon as we got the food we basically packed up to leave because it was SO cold. Also none your hostesses were helpful in actually finding your location. I had to go and get a hotel worker to help me and my friends get there. Again, the food was SO good and I would recommend...as soon as you get your heat fixed

Went to Ming II on New Year's Eve. There was no heat and the restaurant was freezing. There was no attempt to explain and the restaurant got colder as dinner wore on. As a reward for sitting through a frigid dinner, we were offered ice cream, a cruel joke after a cold and drafty dinner.

What a disappointment for what had been a favorite, elegant Asian upscale. While it was Christmas Day, it's no surprise that many who do not celebrate the holiday would be out for dinner. They had no excuse for being understaffed. The food? The papaya salad dressing was complex and complemented the dish, but the papaya was not ripe. The duck taco also was sauced well, but arrived lukewarm. The ample sized Lamb Szechuan did its best to hide the lamb amidst the veggies, but was tasty, if montone spicy. The Eggplant Red Curry trailed the pack, with a hint of what the sauce may have been like if it were not gelatinous.

Excellent! Beautiful restaurant , great food , generous portions, delicious seasonal handcrafted cocktails, elaborate & reasonably priced wine list( Excellent wine list!! you'll be pleasantly surprised ) , efficient & personable servers!!! We did not want anything else for our Thanksgiving family dinner! Must try for delicious Thai Green curry and tons of other choices from all over Asia . I felt like the focus is on Thailand, Malaysia and Chines cuisine and some items with Indian twist. Parking is also very convenient! Great experience

The waiter made some good suggestions and helped describe which plates could be shared based on how big the portion was.

I had Penang curry with my wife and the noodle dish with shrimp - yum!

My wife and I were excited to go to Ming II as the ambiance looks great and the menu had lots of options. We love exploring the many restaurants in Morristown. Although the food was very good (shrimp in green curry sauce was excellent), our service was very poor. Delays in drinks being delivered as well as paying the check really took away from date night. The loud music coming from the bar next door did not help matters either. The experience definitely left a poor impression on us and left us doubtful we would return.

The staff was right on cue, fantastic, attentive, friendly, and professional. The ambiance is great, the décor is unique, modern, and sleek. Low lighting (yet not too dark) was impeccable for a relaxing dinner. The wait staff was right on cue and fantastic. Interesting entry set up, it is three places in one location. Adjoining it is an Indian cuisine restaurant and small cocktail lounge. The south east Asian part (Ming II) is one of the spokes, so to speak, off of this central hub maître d' desk. The restaurant can be somewhat challenging to find as it’s not really visible from the roads or even from the building to which it is attached. Overall food was satisfying, arrived timely, and met all expectations. I would complain about the parking situation, but they do validate parking tickets at the maître d' desk, so I would recommend parking in the hotel parking garage immediately behind/ attached to the restaurant and you don’t have to pay for it post validation.
