Great select for both americanized and authentic dishes. So a first timer can come in and still get less intimidating dishes.

Sun Ming is a great Chinese restaurant in Irmo located just off the main road. They have a great menu with plenty of options, and the portion size at lunchtime was excellent. I got the General Tso chicken, which I would definitely order again. The chicken is good quality, and better than your typical Chinese takeout place.

Anything I have selected from Sun Ming over the years has been consistently good. Very good atmosphere catering to the diverse clientele. Nothing is overly breaded, creamed, or mushy unless it ought to be. When have eaten in, the servers were always pleasant and helpful. The only negative I might have is sometimes the noodles, to be put on the... More

Been here numerous times but at the last minute decided to dine here on a Friday evening with my wife. Arrived about 6:00 pm and was seated immediately. Ordered appetizer of bang-bang shrimp which is a breaded, sweet sauce shrimp. The shrimp were huge and seemed there were 8 or 10 of them, worth the money easily! My wife ordered... More

The food was excellent and the service was very good. It's a great atmosphere to relax and talk. It's some of the best Chinese food in the area. It was very clean and the server was very attentive.

I'll admit, in the past 13 years I've lived here, I've probably only been here four times. It's very clean, a lot of things on the menu i don't know what they are. Last time there was a bit of a language barrier between us and our server. But the food was very good. Need to go here more often... More

Good food, good service. Not the best but in attractive surroundings. Some sauces are too sweet, other dishes too bland, but ingredients are fresh and tasty.

Finding authentic Chinese food that has not been modified for the non-Asian is a hunt that never ends. However, I was surprised to find this restaurant comes as close as it gets. The dishes and the lazy susans on the large round tables give away that they serve "family style" meals. However, some of the vegetable dishes should have been... More

On a co-worker's recommendation, my wife and I tried Sun Ming. Our experience was that the food was somewhat tasteless and that the service was poor. Like the waitress was doing you a favor by waiting on you. If you want some decent Far East food, go to Miyo's on Bower Parkway. The food is very tasty there and the... More
