We used to love this place but the last few times it hasn't been what it used to be. The servers didn't seem to care, the food came out of the kitchen cold, the shrimp and lobster sauce was below average made with frozen carrots and peas not very authentic. The spare ribs used to be great but the last time we had them they were very thin and burnt. We're gonna try some other Chinese places in the area.

Listed as scrambled egg and shrimp under Home Style Cooking. Great eggs and shrimp with a brown soy type sauce. A great light meal. Maybe someday I'll try something else.

I don't often eat at the restaurant, but I do order in frequently. The food is always fresh and hot...and is delivered lightning fast. The prices are really competitive as well. My only complaint is that you can't order pint portions.

My husband and I order from here all the time, the delivery is so fast, and they always get it right, the noodles and dumplings are excellent, the spare ribs are to die for, the prices are great. This is the best chinese in hell's kitchen. We've eaten there a few times too, the atmosphere could be better, but the service is very efficient.

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.
