We're in NYC during the heat wave and this is the only place we didn't have to ask for a refill. As soon as we sat down we were greeted with ice water, hot tea, and crispy noodles (all for free). We placed our order (lunch specials) and our egg rolls were brought out as soon as they were done, and they were huge! Very delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly. The portions were very big. Also, it felt like we had an endless supply of water, as our glasses never dipped below 3/4 full without them refilling them. The service was prompt and friendly, and we very much enjoyed our meal. This was THE best service we've gotten anywhere in NYC since we got here. I only wish we had found it before our last day here!

There are so many places in this area for good food and still end up going there. They have a broad range of different food, I tried almost everything on the menu and I was never disappointed. Especially because the food is not swimming in greasy sauces and they reduce fat, if you ask for it. They're really fast. If you call to order it doesn't even take 10min till you can pick it up so even to go there and choose there is not a waste of time. I am a seafood and shrimp fan and especially the dumplings are really good. There is really seafood and shrimp in it it is not just called so... I can definitely recommend it. Usually I pick it up, so I can't tell how the service is, but the food is great, nongreasy and you can recognize what you ordered it is not just one piece of everything. Especially the broad range of food makes it easy to find something on the menu for everybody and it is possible to go there many times without getting bored. Good, pure, cheap Chinese food!

I grew up in NYC and my mother was having chinese food when her water burst the night I was born so I know Chinese food, lol. I have eaten in some of the best Chinese restaurants in North America, in Frisco, Toronto, Boston, Chicago (OH GOD SPARE ME!) & NYC , I live in Binghamton NY now and cringe at the thought of the local Chinese food. Whenever friends and I go down to visit I always insist one of our meals be at MEE and my friends always say it is now their favorite Chinese restaurant. I honestly have never been disapointed by any dish I have ever had there and the sesame noodles (green ones esp) are an orgasmic delight, when food is indistingquishable from sex thats saying something!!! Sesame beef is always superb and as I like it very crispy simply ask and it shall be served that way, Saheeb. I read most of the reviews that folks left and was amazed at the bad ones, I have frequented Mee for more than 20 years and never had a bad meal or experience and if once in a while a server was cranky big deal, they are victims of their own success, I mean who knew way back when that a lil whole in the wall hoody joint would serve upwards of 7000 patrons during the hours between noon and seven? Lord know it would stress me out and I owned 2 food businesses! What counts most is you wont spend a weeks pay eating there, you will eat like royalty, you can try a different dish every night for a year and not eat the same thing twice and you will have discovered your favorite reason to always come back to your home town to visit. Mee I love you.

Great, fast and reliable take-out/delivery. Food is tasty and plentiful. Wide range of menu items...haven't been able to get to try everything yet - there's definitely some that aren't so good, but the majority are great.

the food comes out as it's made. If you want to eat at the same time as the people you're with, that's just a heads up. I love the dumplings and noodles. I go here all the time. It's sooo cheap too.

We have ordered from almost every chinese delivery in the area, yet somehow MEE had escaped us. Well thankfully the search has ended for the best place to order from over and over again. The noodles (chow fun) with roast pork is good; tastes like barbecue. The chicken and shimp in spicy sauce is really good too.

We ordered delivery from Mee and were surprised how tasty it was. It was not like other quick fix Chinese restaurants where the food is greasy and too saucy. This seemed well prepared. We ordered the noodles w/ roast pork which taste like barbecue and also the chicken and (large) shrimp in chili sauce. Both where pretty darn good.
