Lots of hype, not worth the trip!

We had heard lots of great things about Mei Mei and the food did NOT live up to the hype. Most of the food was actually not very good. Worst wonton soup I've ever had. Some of the main dishes (chicken with peanuts and vegetarian noodles) were decent. It's a complete dive. Definitely not worth... read more

I'm a big Chinese fan, and living in central NJ for a few years I tried a lot of places. None of these came close to matching the quality, prices, and service at Mei Mei. Definitely out of the way for where I lived, I would often make the trip up here because the food was just that good. Egg... More

Came here based on reviews. Chicken with veggies tough but tasty. Ginger chicken fried (unexpected) and no ginger taste. Restaurant cooking area filthy and no inspection grade posted.

Although the ambience may not be as good as some other restaurants, the food at Mei Mei is delicious. When I am away for a while, I cannot wait to get back to town for good Chinese food.

We had dinner here the other night and found it to be a mixed experience. As others have mentioned, the old strip mall the restaurant is in as well as the scruffy, not-too-clean appearance of the restaurant itself certainly give some pause for thought. The woman who took our order at the counter was unfriendly and impatient when we wanted... More

Mei Mei has the BEST Chineese food around. We tried other places and it does not compare to the food or cost.

The same people have been taking my lunch order here for over 30 years. These are the best egg roll in NJ and possibly anywhere. The spare ribs are just the right amount of crispy and juicy. The lobster sauce has plenty of garlic. These are the things I order most often. Cash only and it is mostly take out.... More

I came to the area for business. I read the reviews and decided to try this place. They only take cash, so I had to run to an atm machine. The service was inconsistent. The first lady that helped me was nice but the second lady had an attitude. The place is run down which is ok for because my... More

Menu had a good variety for traditional meals and vegetarian guests. Prices were good and delivery was fast. Portions were filling and enough for two meals. Good choice if you're hungry; nice surprise.
