Ming Garden do a great buffet, in fact, they specialise in buffets! The fried rice is the best in Southland and their dumplings are ridiculously good. I love the pork dumplings and the dipping sauce, and I bet you will too

I do love a good buffet. Ming Garden specialises in buffets, however, never fear .. they do take out too! The fried rice is probably the best in Southland and they do dumpings! The pork dumplings with their very special (and secret) dipping sauce is the best.

Great service, great food, great atmosphere! There isn't much not to love about Ming Garden. Their popular 8 course meal never goes amiss and is guaranteed to satisfy. The best Chinese food I have had by far!
