THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ming's Restaurant Review

: This large restaurant with two huge dining rooms is always bustling, quite an accomplishment for a restaurant established in 1956. It's a good place for dim sum because you don't have to flag down the carts. The pork dumplings are the best. The chicken salad (shredded iceberg lettuce, Chinese mustard and crispy fried chicken) and the sautéed cod with black bean sauce are distinctive. At lunch, there are several vegetarian lunch boxes: a dim sum combo, Hunan eggplant and curry vegetables.
