Excellent all round.
We pretty much ate everything on the menu and loved it all!
Special mention to the Ming’s Wings and the Pumpkin balls 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Uncle Ming’s is the best bar for good drinks and dumplings. Aunties Favourite and 5 spice dumplings are a stand out.
Uncle Ming’s was a great venue. Staff were exceptional with their attentiveness and knowledge.
Great atmosphere and food/drinks. A bit expensive to diner but food was very nice.
Just a shame at time frame. Had to rush food
No phone number or online option to cancel a booking. My friend came down sick and despite trying to contact them on mobile number I got no response and I was actually charged a cancellation fee. My booking was actually for a time outside their listed operating hours as per their website as well.
We were seated at 11:00pm. It took 45 minutes to get a drink served to us. Our waiter ignored us for most of the night and had issues accepting our payments and with our bills and dealt with it very poorly. He swapped with another waiter who was much much nicer to us.
1.5 limit is not enough should be 2 hours you’re paying $20 a cocktail I should be able to drink it in peace thanks
The food and drinks are good, the atmosphere is cool; but we had to actually get up and go to the counter to ask for service. We noticed a few other tables had to do the same thing. We're currently under social distancing laws so there were not many tables either... Staff were nice once we found them but they were not attentive at all.
great food and cocktails, "shanghai roller" is a must try.
Uncle Mings had amazing food and a great atmosphere.
This is one of my favorite places to go in the city. Dumplings are very tasty and cocktails are great too
Great to see the venue taking Covid19 seriously - enforcing strict distancing and admission into the bar. A few small kinks - the kitchen forgot our food order (even though the waiter brought out cutlery early) and we lost track of time so when they came to remind us our booking would be expiring in 30m, and we asked about our food, it was rushed out to us and we literally had to rush it down in 10m before the booking expired. Far from ideal. On that note, the 90min time restriction is limiting - I think 2 hours would be more reasonable. Otherwise, lovely venue and decent value.
Fantastic food at astonishing prices. The cocktails were unbelievably brilliant. Staff were extremely friendly and very COVID safe, awesome experience.
COVID impact only allows for 90 min bookings. The process to enter and "safe" environment was exellent. However it took 30 mins to be served so the staff were not attentive which allowed 60 mins to eat and drink to be excited exactly 90 mins.
Food was excellent - grest dumplings and quick food service
Very welcoming and brilliant customer service. Food outstanding...Just delicious!
Great dumplings and cocktails - perfect for a relaxing, cozy night out
The host on the door was incredibly rude and condescending. Seemed like he was on some sort of power trip, bigger built man with a black face mask on. Other than that the service was amazing, cocktails were great (huge selection) and the food was good value.
Was not able to cancel as the phone number provided is not the actual number and I got charged for not turning up. There was no way to cancel the booking
Really disappointed at the service. Last time I was there was made to feel welcome. This time I had a booing at 6:30pm. First thing they said was you have to go after 90 minutes because of Covid. OK, no problem but their delivery was a little rude and abrupt. They sat me on one of those high tables which I hate. I asked for a proper table and they said they are fully booked out. This was absolute rubbish as the venue was almost empty. There were a few couples who were coming and going but there were a number of tables free at any or time.
Then with 15 minutes to go, they reminded us (in a very abrupt way) that we need to get out at 8pm even though the place was over half empty!
Hi Dean Thanks for your feedback. Due to capacity restrictions placed on venues at present, we are only able to have 40 guests in the venue at any one time - you are correct in saying that the venue is over half empty and that tables looked free. We are doing our best to keep our guests safe and are adhering to social distancing requirements. Because of this we are unable to seat guests at every table in the venue. I apologise that we were unable to offer you another table during your visit.
The dumplings and cocktails were absolutely amazing!!
Food and drinks were well priced and tastes amazing. Will definitely be going again
Great vibes and ambience.
The team maintained covid rules which made the experience a safe and memorable one.
A great date night spot! I love the dark reddish atmosphere, the great food and drinks as well!
Drinks, dumplings and a dim, ambient setting, perfect for daring conversation.
Food came quickly, delicious and refreshing cocktails, low lighting and chill vibe
Always Ah-MAZING!!!!! Love Uncle Mings. You will not be disappointed with the mouth-watering dumplings
Amazing Service, lively atmosphere and really impressed with the steps taken to social distance and sanitising and checking in procedures.
Excellent service and food as always. Very welcoming staff.
Thanks Ian. It is always good to see you!
Amazing service from the staff on the floor! Would definitely come back again.
Loved it, food amazing, atmosphere amazing - only down side was that we could only be there for 90 minutes so we felt a bit rushed. Will definitely go again.
Great food and cocktails, although 90 min rule, it was enough time to eat and drink
I would highly recommend this place, great dumplings and the dim lighting makes it a good date place!
Uncle Ming's was, as always, a fun experience. We loved the dumplings and drinks and the ambience was fantastic. Extra points for playing bops for the duration of our sitting, and the funny and engaging staff members.
Drinks were really great. Given we only had 90 mins - would have been better to have more attentive wait staff as think we would have ordered another round of drinks.
Wonderful service at uncle mings on Friday night. Food and drinks were delicious and the staff were lovely. Thank you!!
We had a fantastic time. The service was great and they were very friendly. The food was delicious, our favourite was the tempura prawns and the pork dim sims. The cocktails were also great! And a nice atmosphere even with the covid restrictions. Would definitely go again!
Thanks Jaqui. I hope we see you at Uncle Mings again soon for more dumplings and cocktails!
Unsatisfactory experience. I will not return. very average
Hello Meg. Thank you for your interesting review. I recall that you were very upset by a large number of global issues as you arrived at our venue - you voiced them loudly to my staff and I. I won't go into the details here. You caused a rather large scene when you asked your friend to leave, attracting the attention of our other guests. We treated both you and your friend very kindly that evening. I do believe that your review is unfounded. Regards, The Uncle Mings Team
Great meal. Music could’ve been a little lower volume but otherwise a great night!
Good place to eat. Good vibes, dumplings were nice, menu is a bit limited, service was good, but could be better. I felt like the mainstream music took a bit of the essence away from the vibe. But overall was a good night. Would recommend. However, book in advance to avoid the queue.
