I ordered veggie lo mein and was quite disappointed. There was a quite good amount of noodles, but not many veggies. I mean that both in quantity and in variety. I saw a few pieces of scallions and a few bean sprouts, but mostly it looked like cabbage. No broccoli. No mushrooms. You get the idea. Not in a hurry... More

New ownership / new chef? I am frequent visitor here. Love the Wah. Actually have been pretty impressed with the food (especially for Chinese in Maine) within last couple years, not so much before that. But I was just there a couple days ago and the food was ok at best. It wasn't bad just not the same as before/usual.... More

I really feel bad for the person who claims to have had such poor service. My husband and I frequent Mei Le Wah quite frequently. We have never been disappointed. Our service has always been good. Based on other Asian Restaurants in the area, Mei Le Wah beats them all. If service was as bad as the previous review mentioned,... More

We've been visiting Mei Le Wah off and on for the past 10 years, and we've learned which dishes they prepare well. We confine our ordering to the reliable dishes, such as the barbecue spare ribs (always quite nice). Since we order only within a narrow selection of dishes, we don't have much to say about the food. The service,... More

I went here this past Saturday and got beef teriyaki, very good. Then I got my main dish and it was excellent. I have been here a few times this year, all my visits have been good.

The food is OK for an asian restaurant. They doo a bigger bar business. There isn't much of a selection for asian food in this area.

Having a Chinese attack and desiring a break form seafoood, my family decided on this restaurant. I can unequivocally say that this was not only THE very worst Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten at but one of the worst restaurants ever. Fried pork dumplings were extra 'squishy", sesame chicken was hard and sauce was like colored water. House fried... More

This is one of my son's favorite Chinese restaurants but it was my first visit there. We were quite hungry so we ordered from the dinner menu. My wife and another of my sons were unable to finish their meals. I however, being a member of the clean plate society, pushed on until I finished. Everything was prepared deliciously.

We will never eat here again. I am rather tolerant of restaurants that are subpar. The food was the worst Chinese food I have ever eaten. Dumplings tasted like undercooked dough. My Hunan Shrimp was drowning in sweet and sour sauce; (I've never seen anything like it...it was like sweet and sour soup, with a little bit of shrimp and... More

I'm sorry you were displeased with your experience. However, to shed some light on our food: Hunan Shrimp is a long time traditional dish, our recipe is our own, but for reference: http://georgefamily.net/cookbook/71Shrimp.html http://quickiefood.blogspot.com/2010/07/hunan-shrimp-recipe.html http://raeraesfood.wordpress.com/tag/hunan-shrimp/ The chicken and vegetables - Our vegetables may be on the crisper side because we use fresh vegetables per order, rather than soggy and mushy....

My girlfriend and I visited Kittery, Kennebunk, York and Kennebunkport in early October 2012. On a rainy night, we were lost and had no idea how to find the "downtown" of Kennebunk (we had just come off the freeway). We stopped and went into Mei Le Wah and the owner's son kindly pointed us in the right direction and he... More
