Mu go to place for a quiet lunch with a great atmosphere. Friendly and very helpful staff
Food was delicious, drinks were amazing, music was great, atmosphere was dope!
Booking was easy, staff were really attentive. Food and drinks were great! We couldn't find the phone number though to give them a call.
Staff was friendly and the food was amazing. Would recommend
Good cocktails and staff were really good with keeping us informed about our booking time and even extending us by 30mins
Amazing cocktails and great dumplings. We had a ball and we were well looked after by a passionate host. Can't wait to return.
Thanks for your review Philip. I am glad that Stacey had a wonderful birthday with us!
The food menu is very limited. The waitress was nice but all the staff rushed us to leave the table fast and we were still waiting for our food and they were already rushing us to leave, we knew the table was booked until certain time, but we were consuming a lot and were kicked out.
Thank you for your comment. We are operating with reduced guest capacities at the moment due to COVID19 restrictions. As such, we have placed a time limit of 90 minutes on all bookings. We don't enjoy doing this, but to ensure everyone who would like to visit Uncle Ming's is able to (especially on a busy Melbourne cup day), this is the option we have chosen. All guests are made aware of the time limit when booking and on entry to the venue. We hope to see you again once restrictions have lifted
Food/atmosphere was great, the tables are abit small though and it makes eating and drinking a little uncomfortable
Never have had a bad time here.
They make the best dumplings ever. Even my friend said so, as their first time they came with me.
Food and drinks were awesome as usual. The girls serving were very worked up and sounded irritated every time they were called.
Great service as always at mings! The staff are all friendly and really get to know their regulars.
The food is cooked in house and tastes delicious. Another vegan GF option on the menu would be great for those with dietary requirements.
Ming’s Bruce Lee tea is my go to! A tad less ice and tad more grog would be ideal. It tends to serves three people but menu says it serves 4-5. otherwise their specialty cocktails are worth while.
Shout out to James (Ming’s bartender), he treats me well and keeps me coming back.
One of the best places in sydney for nice cocktails and dumplings
Love going to uncle mings. Took my group there for their first time and the really loved the food and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Great atmosphere, friendly staff, amazing food. And cocktails served in teapots!
The uncle didn’t disappoint. Delicious cocktails. Fast service. Ambiance unlike most other Sydney bars. Inspired by opium dens, food served late, good for a date night.
Amazing experience. Came all the way from Wollongong and did not disappoint!
Great service, delicious food, unique cocktails and really cool ambiance
Owen is a superstar!!! Cocktails are some of the best in town. We’ll be back
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
