A great stop if you like all you can eat Chinese buffets. I stopped here to fuel up and rest from my backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. I heard about this place hundreds of miles away on the trail as a stopping point and a hiker tradition to stop here for food. I have to say it was delicious... More

We have eaten here for years, but the quality seems to be deteriorating. We were disappointed in the spare ribs, which were bland. The fortune cookies were stale and inedible. The friends we brought with us thought the food was "fair," and said they were not interested in returning. Although the decor is quite elaborate, the furniture is getting very... More

The New Ming Garden restaurant has a nice selection of buffet items. The buffet is what I would expect at a Chinese restaurant. There is also a menu on line, so I am assuming that you could order from the menu. There is a sushi station and a gentleman who will prepare selections to order. We had a very nice... More

We have eaten at Ming Garden whenever we are in Waynesboro, and generally like it. It is a very large buffet with a lot of choices, and the food is usually fresh, and hot. You can choose from the usual cooked dishes on steam tables, or pick your proteins, vegetables, starches, and sauce and have it cooked for you. Or,... More

Ate here based on reviews in Backpacker magazine. It was very clean and offered lots of varied choices. Taste of food was good for a buffet .Sushi bar was very good. Only wish they had white sauce. I will stop in again when I'm in Waynesboro. I like to try different Chinese buffets wherever I go and this is near... More

Ming's is famous on the Appalachian Trail and I was anxious to give it a try. It turned out to be fairly typical of Chinese buffet restaurants. They do have a large selection of items including boiled shrimp and clams, and they also have a grill where you can select your ingredients. While the food options were plentiful, I found... More

Always a good deal. Food on the buffet is usually the same but it's good, reliable eating. The one thing they don't do is refill the soups and that's disappointing.
