This restaurant was purchased close to two (2) years ago by a new owner. Really nice guy who carries on the same tradition of large, quality portions and fair prices - same as the former owner. The difference is in presentation. MING'S CAFE is much cleaner and diner friendly than Number 1 Chinese ever was. Number 1 Chinese had tables... More

The owner has a fresh, enthusiastic perspective on cooking. Interesting specials everyday. Fresh ingredients. Certainly worth a try!

They are quick and efficient, although the meals seem to be very heavy and they put the broccoli into the mix too early and over cook it for my liking. I have tried the others in the area, and this is the best of them, but they have room to get better.

We love the owners. Very friendly. The food is always good, not great. They prepare everything after you call in the order, so it's always fresh. Very generous portions. Great takeout for a Sunday night family dinner when everyone is tired. Won ton soup, genl tso's chicken and chicken lo mein are some of our favorites.

We like to order Szechuan Chicken medium hot at this casual Severna Park restaurant. Feel free to tell them what you like more of in a dish. For example, I always ask for more mushrooms and broccoli in this dish. They'll also spice it any way you like. Good food to take out. KVA

Dingy little restaurant. The place smelled of burnt oil. We had carryout and it wasn't worth carrying. There was little taste and horrible texture to the beef, the vegetables were limp and tasteless also. The fried rice had no vegetables or eggs in it and was dry. We even tried to give the dog some beef, she didn't eat it.
