Ming Wah - Weymouth

I don't tend to eat out at many Chinese/ Far Eastern influenced restaurants the reason being is that I'm Vietnamese and no one cooks like my mum. However today my boyfriend had a craving for Chinese food and we found a small traditional looking restaurant down the high street in Weymouth called Ming Wah. The Chinese new year decorations were up with the large dragon costumes hidden in the corner, ready for tomorrow.

The restaurant was really busy considering the town was quiet, it seemed like everyone was in here. We didn't make a reservation but were luck enough to get a table. The service was great throughout the evening, the staff were very attentive and I enjoyed the low lit restaurant. We picked the set menu "F" which was £19.90 each, which consisted of:

- Fried Crispy Seaweed
- Authentic Malaysian Chicken Satay
- Barbecued Spare Ribs
- Crispy Aromatic Duck (1/4 for every 2 persons)
- King Prawn in Garlic and Chilli Sauce
- Sweet and Sour Chicken
- Served with Yung Chow Fried Rice

There was so much food between us that it was a big struggle when it came to the last few dishes. Our eyes were definitely bigger than our belly and it didn't help when a customer gave every table in the restaurant a generous serving of profiteroles (It was her 50th birthday and she had about 200 profiteroles stacked up as a cake). It was a very lovely gesture.

Anyway I had a great experience at Ming Wah, the food was tasty and I enjoyed the ambience throughout the restaurant. There was a mixed crowd of people from older generations to families, couples and young groups of friends, which personally I think is a good sign of a well established restaurant.
