We love Ming II. The food is always outstanding (though a bit pricey) and there are lots of vegetarian options. We love Henry - he's a fantastic server. Our only real complaint is that it can be quite loud in there - something about the acoustics don't absorb sound. We had a large party next to us and felt like we had to yell to hear each other across the table.

The food and service were excellent. My partner and I are both vegetarians and there were lots of choices for us. We enjoyed the unique and delicious cocktails. It’s a little hard to find but we are glad we found it and would definitely eat here often if we lived here.

I really like this place. Service is good, food is good and most importantly they customize the food if you have some preferences. I highly recommend this place as one of the best fine dining places in New Jersey.

Might be too overpriced for asian cuisine. Dishes were ok- nothing stood out. Service was impeccable, same as their sister restaurant, Mendhi. I will still recommend to friends- their taste might be different from mine.

The food is good but way too expensive for what it was. Honestly, do you really need to charge for rice when you charge $23 for curry?

When we got there at 5:30 we were the only people there so it was nice and quiet and remained that way the whole time. We have been there previous times when it was full though and it gets very loud. It is also pretty dark for my taste. The staff was great and the food was great as well. The vegetarian pad thai noodles are amazing. We will definitely go back.

Amazing! Beautiful restaurant serving delicious Asian cuisine (Thai, Malaysian, Chinese) paired with courteous/fast service and hand crafted seasonal cocktails! Notable wines selection and non alcoholic drinks selection is worth mentioning!
Food was flavorful and very well presented.
They validate parking for the underneath parking garage. It’ll be our regular dinner spot before movies at the best AMC in the area!

I have visited Ming couple of years back. I really liked the food. How ever this was experience was really bad. The methanis put a good show, good ambience decor. Etc. sadly the food was something they should do better
1. Pls remove the dumplings from ur menu. It’s just bad. Also I was first served cold dumplings . Dumplings are steamed , which means they are usually piping hot. So I think I got stale dumplings, it was readily replaced with warm dumplings though it did little for its taste
2. We were told Chikki chicken was ur most popular dish. Horrible chewy chicken and again did not feel fresh.
I would say that The Thai rice and Hakka noodles were good.
You servers should taste ur food and should be in a position to recommend good Food

Very good Chinese food for northern N.J. would have given 5 stars, but charging for white or brown rice is unlike any other Chinese restaurant where I have dined. Good wine list and prompt helpful service makes this is great choice in Morristown area, plus free parking.

We were expecting more from the quality of food. Nothing exceptional just middle of the road. Service could have been better as it took awhile to have our dinner plates taken away and the check presented. The most attention came from the hostess and having us seated.

our table attendant was very rude with us, and when we complained about the chicken Manchurian having a very sweet flavor , he said rudely that his clientele were mostly non Asians (Americans to be precise, and he showed us the crowd across the room) and he had to cater to their taste and we should visit the Edison Ming if we dont like the food at Morristown .

I was very disappointed at my last visit over a year ago (food quality) but decided to give this place another shot. This time the food was very good as was the service. I do not like their policy of adding an automatic tip of 18% even for a party of 1. And I was not informed of this - the credit card stub still had a spot to add the tip.

It is very confusing to have language on the menu that an 18% gratuity is included on parties of 3 or more. We were under the assumption it was included based on this disclosure, however we did not want to stiff our waiter and asked at the hostess station we were told, yes. Luckily we found out before we left that in fact it wasn't included on our check. Change the policy. Either include or don't - very confusing. For this type of price point and restaurant, it should be on larger parties anyway.

When you enter the lobby, there are four doors for different location - Indian, a lounge/bar, Ming II, and then another door to get to the parking deck where you can also access AMC. There was some confusion upon check in and it seemed like they were scrambling at the front desk, but once inside everything was great. Our waiter was attentive, the food was DELICIOUS, and the ambience was nice. It was smaller than I expected but the right size in my opinion. I love the wood panel walls and it was very comfortable.

Was with a grroup & we ordered the following:
Appetizers: spare ribs, rock shrimp with honey & sesame, and duck taco - all are AMAZING
Main course: pad thai and hakka noodles - Pad thai was on point. I'm very picky about my pad thai and this was delicious
Dessert: We were surprised with birthday cakes/ice cream since we were celebrating two birthday's.

After dinner, we went next door to the lounge/bar which was chill - nice bar, good drinks, and music. After 10 a DJ comes in. Had a really good time and will def come back again!

It was very confusing if rice was included with your entree. Waitress said no, I passed and did not order. Then when I found my dish 2/3 gravy I asked for rice. But was not charged for it. Waitress was not clear.
