My husband used to frequent this restaurant before we met (he ate there weekly), so when we got together, he started bringing me along. It was eight (?!?!) years ago, and it was before I learned how to cook. To us, the food was great: plenty of mock meats, and no dish clean up! We found other places and stopped visiting Ming for years, but then we returned for nostalgia's sake. After I'd become a proficient cook and we had found much better restaurants, Ming seemed quite awful. What stood out in our minds were the overly salty, overcooked food and the rude servers. If you want a vegan version of the crappy food they serve in the Chinese restaurants in tiny hick towns, then check out Ming Dynasty... but for the same price, you could get a lovely, healthy meal in a pleasant atmosphere at Thai 99.
