Ate here for the first time last night. Food was fresh and hot and didn't take long. Everything tasted so good. California rolls were delicious. Server was attentive and polite. The atmosphere is really nice and calming and felt cozy. They were packed for a Tuesday night. We'll be back!

Good food from them here in Matthews. We like coming here to get our Chinese food take out. They have an online ordering system that makes it so easy vs calling in the order. Definitely recommend Ming Fu in Matthews.

Not knowing what to expect being we have been disappointed multiple times from prior restaurants, we were very much surprised in how good the food we ordered was at MingFu.The food at MingFu was delicious. We ordered 6 dishes and every single one was great tasting. Relocating from the northeast our biggest issue was finding food that was good. I believe we have found our Chinese restaurant.

The decor and presentation was beautiful. Highly recommend the chinese food, it was fresh and delicous. The sushi was just ok, might have just been the rolls we ordered.

This place was amazing. While it is a little expensive I would highly recommend it, and will be coming back.The crispy duck with chicken fried rice I ordered was so good, and the portion size was huge.My girlfriend had vegetable sushi she said it was OK but a little too crunchy for her due to the carrot. She did order a second roll with just avacido and cream cheese, she like this one much more.The atmosphere here is upscale. I would have felt out of place in shorts and a T-shirt.

We ordered delivery and “Scallion pancakes” was $6.50 (as much as a maki roll) and it was one very small pancake cut into 4 pieces. Not sure if that's the amount they serve in the restaurant for that price, but that's pretty disappointing. The sushi was ok, but we probably won't order from here again.

Amazing Generals Chicken and the sushi was fantastic! The woman at the counter (who was taking our order) was friendly, funny, and very helpful! Defined can't beat the price for the high quality!

I had my first experience here last night. The food was amazing. The service was very prompt and very, very good. The atmosphere was perfect. And the prices were very, very reasonable. I will definitely make this place a regular stop.

Love eating at the restaurant. I love the food so much. I try to always get the same server named daria because she is awesome and she's really attentive to my needs. Please thank her and give her a raise. And please let her know that me, Cody bridges have her a great review

Great food, sushi is fresh, meals promptly delivered. Wait staff is very good. If you love spice, ask for a side of hot oil/chili oil to put on your dish. Great addition to any stir fry style dish. I have been big on the udon noodles lately

My family orders takeout from here at least once a month. Food is always good and quick!

Review №16

Ming Fu is consistently delicious, fresh Chinese/Asian. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with a gallery-like feel. Great lunch menu. The only reason I didn't give the 5th star is because sometimes the service isn't as attentive as it could be. Servers are prompt to take & deliver orders, but don't do quite enough checking during the meal.

Great flavors, prompt and discrete service, chill ambience! Loved it, can't wait to go back! Try the MingFu Noodle Soup with Shrimp!

The tofu dishes were better than most places around here. Their spring rolls are great. They accommodate tofu substitutions for most dishes on the lunch specials.

The chicken! So TENDER! I cannot stress enough that this was the best general tso I've ever had. I went with a group of 6, everyone ordered something different, and everyone loved it.

I love this place. The food is absolutely delicious. Service was good. Their sushi is very good. The times I've been there, we hardly wait long to get seated. I believe the prices are reasonable and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Horrible customer service. Wanted to bring in 20 people for lunch today. Called with a few questions... asked one question the lady said it's on the menu thank you and hung up on me. Glad they are doing so well that they don't need 20 people coming in for lunch....

Took my wife on a date here. It was our very first time visiting. The atmosphere was nice, the staff was friendly. The food was good with fair prices. We would definitely return for lunch or dinner.

2 stars just because of how nice the restaurant is. I've lived near there for over 5 years, but had never tried it. Decided to get takeout since my go-to was closed on Sunday. Portions were VERY small, food was bland, AND THEY FORGOT MY EGG ROLL!!!!! When I called about it they weren't very accommodating and just said they would note it in my account for next time. I asked if maybe they could give me a free appetizer next time and they said they couldn't do anything like that. Well guess what? There won't be a next time. I wanted to like this place so bad when I saw how nice it was on the inside. Probably the nicest chinese restaurant ever! Doesn't matter how great the decor is if the food sucks and the service is bad.

Came here late on a slow Monday. Sushi was out of control delicious. This pace deserves all 5 stars. Genuinely impressed. I will be back often.

My daughter loves their sesame chicken. Our family gets takeout from here frequently. Definitely recommended.

Review №28

We've ate here a few times and every time we've come something is cold. My kids broccoli was cold last time and tonight my rice was cold. The center of the chicken was refrigerator cold along with the peas. Definitely not fresh and microwaved. Very disappointed once again. Won't go back. Maybe if the cooks weren't more worried about eating the food then feeding their customers warm food it may have been better. If the cooks are going to eat at least wait until your customers are gone instead of a hour and half before you even close.

Review №33

Sushi was not good. Very flavorless and stale. Chicken was alright. I have had better at much cheaper and less appealing looking places. The decor here is lovely, you can tell they put care into making it look nice. It was very expensive for sub par food. We came here based on the ratings, so maybe this was just a bad day for them, but I was very disappointed.

Salmon was fresh. Make sure you go 15-20 minutes after lunch or dinner starts. Fresher

Review №35

Ok price for the food you get. It can be hit or miss, with food being great one day and sub-par the next. Wait staff could use some more customer service training, but they will get you to where you need to be.

Went there Christmas Eve, the lady front door was so rude. She wouldn't accept our party of five but the party in back of us was four and accepted them. She had the nerve to say she will accept a smaller party. I did take out and regret it. Food was nasty.

Great local family friendly Chinese restaurant. They have a wide variety of dishes from traditional Chinese to Japanese. Their sauces are flavorful and the food comes out fast. It is a family owned restaurant and the owners are often there and walk around to check on your table. They are very warm and friendly.

This is by far the best place I found to eat in Charlotte. Fabulous food at a fantastic price. The staff there was very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. Laughs and a great meal to end our evening with. You can do far worse going someplace different.

Food is awesome but be aware of this policy at the Matthews location. Per manager, if ordering take out they do not include cutlery or any sauces unless requested. What restaurant doesn't include at least a fork?!?!?

Lunch prices were reasonable but dinner to go....lo mein and pineapple fried rice in a 6 inch round container and a small salad for 21 bucks seems like a lot. Food was decent. Nothing id go out of my way for but good enough.

Our go-to spot for birthdays and celebrations from work. They have some great Chinese dishes. It gets a little packed around dinner time, but for lunch it's easy and we're always glad we went.

Meet the family after church to celebrate my mom's birthday! The food was amazing and such big portions we had leftovers. Even my picky kids loved their food and the mochi ice cream. They were very accommodating and always had our drinks filled. Definitely will be coming back.

Love Ming fu, they have great food. However, poor customer service. I preordered a substantial order for 7 and arrived to pick up and learned they'd given my order to someone else of the same first name. I was offered a sincere apology for the mistake and then had to wait 20 mins for my new order. Nothing more was offered, yet the person who picked up my order plus there's order and mine. ??

Ok let's get this straight from the beginning - I'm from New York - work in New York and eat at legendary places like WoHop all the time. I grew up on Chinese food. It's a staple in the city just like pizza. There's a Chinese place on nearly every other street.This was one of the best Chinese food meals I have ever had. Dare I tell my friends home it was in a small town in North Carolina!!!!!! They'll never believe it!Victoria was my server and she was so great, sweet, knowledgeable, happy and polite. Great service great two bite check back. Everything great.It's funny how some of our best memories are tied to great meals, the atmosphere and the people we are With, this place is just that for me today.I wish I didn't have to fly home tomorrow but this was a memory I'll never forget. Thank you so much

We started going here again (and again and again), for take out. It's really great!!! Really good Chinese food! They also have Sushi. Bring the whole family, or just go for a date. Many, many items on the menu! Lots of vegetarian choices. They have lunch specials. This place is at an end of Matthews. From here, you can have a nice walk through town, up one side of the street and down the other. UPDATE: Still great! Get food to go! We love their lunch specials!

Pepper steak is very thin, comes out cooked and on a hot plate. You then have to cut and add the additions to it. Was over cooked and the brown sauce taste was just not there. Beverage was flat. Waitress attempted to argue with me on the steak, manager explained it is not possible to order anything less than well done. Pepper steak is the most expensive meal, which I found odd... still only $15. The soup was great! Also, the person I went with was pleases. If you decide to try it perhaps request the prepare the meal fully in the kitchen rather than at the table.

I like this place a lot for lunch. They have great lunch specials and really good quality food. My daughter loves their sushi and says it's fantastic. I like their stir fry dishes. The booths are large and feel very private.

I have tried this place several times (at least 5) and I have been unhappy 4 out of the 5 times. My family continues to eat their food but I am done. My orders don't taste fresh. The brown vegetable rice always seems to taste like it has set all day and really makes me queasy. I hate to give a bad review but I can't always give good ones.

Review №75

Ming Fu used to be my favorite Asian food in Matthew's but no more. Though I still love the food I venture to say I won't be coming back. I've ordered the same appetizer for 2 years, the salmon tartar. It's amazing however tonight was a hot mess. I get mistakes happen but to have the manager come out and pretty much call me a liar that's it's never been on the menu and never been served in this restaurant. Even the waitress thought he was rude. Then a lot to late he brought what I ordered but still denying it was ever on the menu. Then he came out again several minutes later apologizing saying next time the chef will know what to do but it's still not been on the menu and never has been. Then he came out again, this time with my check. The appetizer wasn't in the check because it's not in the system he said but then he followed that with another apology because low and behold he found the menu item on the old menu.So the moral of this review is this food is good but the manager needs customer service skills.Update: It has been over a year. I did attempt to go back once and was not given a free meal as originally offered in their response. Sadly the customer service had not changed either. Our family has not been back since.In short you can have amazing food but if you treat your customers badly they won't come back.

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant! the food has always been excellent and the quantity healthy. I do not find their food here greasy, which I think a lot of Chinese food can be. The menu is extensive. I am not a sushi eater so I cannot say about the sushi.

There food here was excellent. I've been looking for good Chinese food that reminds me of the great food I used to eat in China Town in NY and when I ate here I stated that I finally found a place in Charlotte with similar taste and experience. It's not cheap but I'll pay gladly for quality. I'll be back often. The staff was very friendly and worked fast and hard to accommodate. The place was clean including the bathroom. Highly recommend.

Food was fantastic. I had the Dragon/Fantasy dish and it was so fresh. The shrimp did not taste shrimpy and the chicken was crisp with a little heat. The place was popping tonight so it is definitely a popular place. Enjoy!

One of the best places around for Chinese food. The food here is very good when taken home (a lot of take out restaurants fail here). The atmosphere is relaxed and cozy but it is close to being too crowded by the layout. You will spend a little extra time here compared to similar places but the quality of the food speaks for the extra time and effort put into your meal.

I came in last week and tried the sesame and general tso's chicken which were both fresh, hot and crispy. The dragon rolls were also delicious.
