I nearly walked out when I first got there. Dirty walls, ceiling, dust everywhere. I thought I was in a gas station bathroom. Storage room open to the dining room. Bathroom doors are in the dining room. I was assured the food was good so I ate there. Food was very good, waitress was pleasant and helpful. Won't eat there... More

This place has the best Chinese food. They have a lot of options; from lunch specials to multiple course meals and all at a great price. But this would mean nothing if it wasn’t for the amazing food. The building is not much to look at but as the sayings go “don’t judge a book by its cover.”

You will feel like family dining at this lovely establishment. The food is the best, try ordering the honey walnut shrimp. The service is the best you will get in Pocatello. The atmosphere is relaxing and intimate. A must stop eatery when you go through town.

They knew us personally because we were one of their first customers. Yet, after the years since their first opening to now in 2013. I would say... More

We've eaten here periodically over the years, and the last few times were truly disappointing. the food is bland, and we have trouble finding things that aren't batter fried now. it sits in your stomach like a rock, and it just isn't worth it. On top of that, the atmosphere is kind of icky now. there was a fire issue... More

We are used to eating amazing Chinese food in Seattle and attempts to eat Chinese multiple times in Pocatello left us frustrated. Mings is the best we have found here... other places have nicer decor... this is really dumpy but the food is decent. It is a mom & pop & cousins from China type of place. We like the... More

We love Chinese food. This food was dried out and very bland. The pork rice is disgusting. It also has a weird smell in their dining area, like walking into your dead grandmother's house.
