Does anyone know if Ming's is still somewhere in Houston? – I'm trying to find where I can purchase the mint green tea that they had at the cafe on Montrose at Westheimer?
If you know where I can get in touch with the previous owners or someone please contact me. I live in Las Vegas now and still miss that mint green tea.
Very dirty – I just don't get it! How could any TRUE AMERICAN want to eat there.... Seriously horrible eating area and everyone rating the food as great...SURE IF YOU CRAWL OUT OF THE SEWER!!!!!!! The food is cheap and I saw why.....rat traps surrounded the building where as all the other surrounding restaurants had nothing like this in view of public and the service was NASTY too. I asked for the soup of the day and I saw the cook Wipe his nose goo on his hand and then grab the pan and then pour iy on the plate....F'ING NAsty!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sure you nasty Bastar#% crawling out of the sewer that can't wait to visit them in Austin which have nothing else going on in their life just go eat there and mabe the next name on the menu will be Scruffy.....hint hint!!!!!!!!!! U IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!
An inner loop Chinese institution - sorry to see it go! – The food at Ming's was always fresh and delicious and the dumplings & wonton soup were out of this world. The service and decor were part of its interesting character. Wish I had prior notice of their closing, I would have stocked up and frozen some of my favorite entrees. We will be checking out Ming's Austin as soon as we can!
Disgusting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Service was horrible and the food was very below average. The dining area was nasty ( floors are falling apart and falling in ) and I am dying to see what is going in there now that Mings is gone.
Yuck!!!!!!!!!!! – The food was so artificial tasting and I was always bloated.....Thank Goodness they are closed!!!!!!
Best food! – Mings is one of the best food places here in the montrose area, especially for college students around rice or st. thomas area other than fast food like mcdonalds and burger king its relativly close to everythign in montrose, its an awsome taste, its not to small, and yes maybe the service isnt like one in river oaks when u get waited on but out of the selfservice restaurante sin montrose it is one of the best.
Yummy quick bite! – Mings is a YUMMY and inexpensive quick bite! After getting precooked BBQ chicken, squash, corn, tomatoes, and potato salad for my dinner guests at Central Market, I ended up making a fast run to Mings. After 1 bite of the CM food, I asked my guests if they disliked the food from CM as much as I did. 1 phone call, a 15min cook time for Mings, 5 min drive home and WAALAA.....we were all having dinner with a smile on our faces. Huge dishes, low cook times, great prices and FANTASTIC food!
Chinese with an attitude – The food here is okay but surely not the best. But, the service is terrible. The little lady who's behind the counter behaves as though she hates her job and that you're just a big interruption of her otherwise miserable day. The food is not worth the attitude if you ask me.
Best quick Asian food in this part of the state, I'm convinced! – My friend does business over in that area often, and calls just to tell me he's eating at Ming's, just to make me jealous. I absolutley love all of their food, and, by this point, I think I've worked through all of their chicken dishes, having yet to find one that had a bad taste. Some weren't my thing, but they were all good, and cooked to order. My favourite fall backk meal is just a nice big plate of their unbeatable chicken fried rice with an eggroll. I LOVE it and highly reccomend it!
neighborhood's best kept secret – my favorite Chinese food place! yes, it is tiny and sometimes parking can be a problem, but for quick and tasty Chinese food it hits all the right spots. there is a little dry erase board that shows the day's specials (take a look), but I always go back for the Gen. Tso chicken combo. includes drink, sweet and sour chicken, and fried rice. they use white meat in the chicken, it's not painfully spicy (pleasantly tingly I suppose, since not a huge fan of spicy food), and nice medley of jullianed carrots/onions/zucchini. however, found the Chinese green bean special with beef BLAH. friend had Singapore noodles, which was curry and rather spicy (but does clear your sinuses).
