Chinese Restaurants in Lexington, SC

Click or Call

Briefly: Sun Ming is my favorite Chinese restaurant in Columbia. They really do everything quite well. Let's break it down a bit, much as one would a chicken or a Supreme Court minority dissent on a recent ruling that really ticked you off. (That Scalia is a dill-hole, right?)

The restaurant itself is nothing unusual - one large room with a small bar and partitions. Two unnecessary televisions, somewhat dim lighting. Everything is clean however, and the larger tables are wonderful for parties.

The menu is VAST, varied, and ranges from the basic and accessible General Tso's chicken and egg rolls to the more traditional beef brisket hot pot, string beans, egg foo young... and then the downright rare - fish head soup (good), chicken feet (eh), pork stomach (not braved it yet) and so on. Really hundreds of items and it's super fun to peruse. The fare is a cut above what usually gets passed around in Columbia, but won't win any awards for presentation - just deliciousness.

Some of my favorite items include: roast duck, Wor Won Ton soup (hearty!), 5 spice pork, cumin lamb and the Mala dishes. All the Szechuan options are welcome and you can ask the kitchen to dial up the heat till your mouth drools from numbness (in a good way). There are a good amount of meatless options for you vegetarians out there & I'm happy to report that the Ma Po Tofu = wonderful.

Service has always been prompt, friendly and accurate.

I haven't seen many other mention this, but Sun Ming offers a FANTASTIC service with their online ordering via their website. Simply place an order, select the day and time you want it ready, and pay when you pick up. The website is clean and easy to use and my order is never-not-ever wrong. I wish more restaurants would get on board with this idea.
