Orlando >Ming Court-Innovative Oriental
Ming Court has been a family fav for years we are from Ft. Lauderdale and have actually driven 3 hours just to have their dim sum.. we plan our vacations in orlando with Ming Court in mind every visit.
Crazy Restaurant. They are too busy to make flyed rice more than 1 hour. You can wait for table, food, and bill for a long time. If you ask something complain to waiters, you may be neglected and escaped!! Taste is not too bad, but survice by Chinese people is crazy.
If you don't like their dim sum....you are an idiot!. i have been eating here about twice a month for 15 years now and I have never once been disappointed. Great service and unbelievable food.
Ming Court Rocks!. Wow.. that?s all we can say. We went to Ming Court while on a trip in Orlando this past December. It was recommended by the hotel?s guest service person, who by the way, was setting up appointments to see Hilton vacation Club timeshare. We didn?t do that ? and believe me, you got to watch these guys! Any rate, Chinese food is usually not my first pick, but one of my wife's favorite. I take it all back. I have never had such great Chinese food. The menu at Ming Court is unbelievable? tons of stuff, from steak to sushi, and an amazing selection of Dim Sum appetizers. Never saw anything like it. I had Shrimp with Walnuts and it was out of this world. My wife had Chicken with basil and she loved it too. This is a big restaurant with one side has a large pond area ? very pretty. And they have live music (no cover charge). I really liked this place and recommend it to anyone who likes above average Chinese food and I will say, also at the average price. Great place in my opinion.
Ambience Makes Up for the So-So Food.
If you're looking for an adventure in entertainment dining, regardless of how the food actually tastes, then this place is for you. If you're like me and you like good food, keep looking.
We had the Fried Dumplings which were acceptable (too chewy). The chef specialty Seafood in a Szechuan Sauce was actually nice, but I've had far better (tomatoes were nice touch). The Hot & Sour Soup was solid. The Pork Lo Mein was the most tasteless Chinese dish I've ever had. Ming Court, if you're reading this, my advice is to revisit that Lo Mein recipe and stop using the spaghetti that was on sale at Publix.
Service was amazing. The musicians were fantastic, a duo was playing the guzheng and erhu. I think we saw the woman playing the guzheng at the Chinese pavilion at Epcot.
mmmmhhhh..dimsum.. seriously, this place is FANTASTIC. don't think. eat. go now. i recommend getting dim sum if you're a fan, but the wok and sushi selections are out of this world. for dim sum--the pepper shrimp. wow.
Luxury with down to hearth prices. Is a family and business restaurant. Food is great, personnel too!!! Love the outdoor view. Highly recommended!
great dim sum!. I absolutely love this place. Dinner or lunch - all the food is excellent! Their crispy tofu item off their dim sum menu is one of my favorites, definitely one of the main reasons I keep going back. Atmosphere is great for a group dining experience. Also a good place to take those out of towners.
It's Marvelous .... I have been going to Ming Court about once a month for over 3 years ... and I'm still going. That is a mere reflection of the variety of food and drink you can enjoy at this wonderful restaurant. It is all good ...from the dim sum (tiny morsels from Heaven) to the full scale entrees, this place does not disappoint. Everything is well defined and tasty, and the service staff is extremely friendly and helpful. From fresh seafood to tasty pork shu mai to spring rolls to corn and chicken chowder, this is the ultimate ... it compares favorably with what you get in Hong Kong, New York or San Francisco --- and you dont have to travel very far. Stop by soon and ask for Michael, the GM... and tell him The Colonel sent you!
Excellent Dim Sum. The Ming Court is a refreshing alternative to the usual tourist choices on I-drive. The Dim Sum is easily on par with anything served in Vancouver, Seattle, or San Fran. The dinner choices are also excellent. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a traditional Dim Sum meal. Good sushi too.
