Spot on! Great! Hen hao!

We know good Chinese when we meet it and this is it! Sizzling chicken soup sizzled and satisfied. The basil and beef in lettuce was outstanding. The mushu chicken was great! The dry fried green beans were really well done. And the shrimp with rice noodles was fabulous. A great place that we enjoy... read more

We've been dining on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day at Mei Shung for years. A family tradition. It's not splashy; the mellow pastel walls, high ceiling and soft classical music are sort of soothing. Parking is tough. You can pay a few bucks for meters on Broadway or circle the neighborhood for a freebie. And there is a... More

Fabulous Chinese food with an extensive menu. At ops here leaves a little to be desired. But service and food are excellent.

This is my neighborhood Chinese restaurant; we take out from there every few weeks. The food is consistently good and they are fast with preparation.

This restaurants serves authentic Taiwanese cuisine. In particular, they have many tapa style small dishes that are originally found as street food in Taiwan. The dishes are well made in general. The service is friendly and helpful. A good place to go for authentic Taiwanese food.

My brother-in-law invited us to Mei Shung and since that time, everytime I visit Chicago, eating at that place is a must. I usually go for the lunch special. They have amazing Spring roll, orange chicken and Sesame chicken ... Hmm ... tasty. The Fried & White Rice are excellent. The service is quick and friendly.

We have only had delivery but everything has been excellent. Very fresh ingredients and very little if any oil in the dishes, even fried ones. Really great food with several Taiwanese specialties like Beef Noodle Soup which is authentic! I lived in Taiwan so i know!!

The Empress Shrimp is so tasty you'll wish you could eat more, even after you're stuffed. My spouse loved the fried chicken. Both ample servings. The egg rolls seemed a little bland, but that was the only false note. The delivery came quickly and hot. Friendly delivery and phone service.

A regular at Mei Shung for 13 years, I haven't had a bad meal yet. Great appetizers include eggrolls densely stuffed with cabbage and shrimp, potstickers (nicely spiced sausage dumpling with a terrific sauce), or refreshing springrolls with a tasty plum sauce. Main courses are tradiitonal Chinese fare done well but spiced (and sometimes made) to order. There's a separate... More
