LAS VEGAS, May 25, 2005- Ming's Table, the restaurant formerly known as Asia, will re-opens today, May 25, 2005.

A unique and hip alternative to Cantonese dining, located in a Chinese style bistro setting, Ming's Table fuses similar Chinese, Thai, Szechwan and Japanese delicacies that one would find at Asia but offers up a twist by serving generous portions with a contemporary edge.

Designed by the Friedmutter group, the two million dollar project creates an enticingly modern atmosphere. Ming's Table brings a palate of warm browns and deep reds are surveyed upon entering the 84-person restaurant. The combination of oval lighting fixtures, sleek and simple lighting elements, accented by cherry red tables and mosaic columns create a geometric fantasy.

Original and traditional dishes are important keys to the successful development of a menu; however, it's always important to reinvent our menu to fuse our unique dishes with the updated atmosphere, said Ming's chef Winston Chung, who began his culinary career in Singapore and also plays a large role in planning the restaurant's menu.

The traditional dishes that made Asia the best Asian restaurant in 2004, as voted by the Best of Las Vegas Poll from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, are still available at Ming's Table. The roast duck served crispy along with a rich plum sauce, sizzling beef in a black pepper sauce and spicy Kung pao shrimp and scallops remain local favorites. For the more adventurous and modern of palates, Ming's is serving the honey glazed walnut shrimp for $22, beef with satay sauce for $12.99 and Dan Dan noodles for $11.99.

Also new to the menu are iced teas, which are served in a bowing glass and once extracted from their element serve to sweeten the best of taste buds. For a small price of $3.25 guests may choose from a variety of nine different iced teas, such as mandarin orange, raspberry or desert pear iced tea. Tropical green tea, mountain spring jasmine green tea and ginger twist herbal infusion hot teas may be enjoyed as well for an equally accommodating price. A variety of sakes are served, ranging from $12.50-$23.75.
