The portions are very big but not really very good. Many dishes all taste the same. Crab rangoons have a very bad flavor and after taste. Rice was very dry. The teriyaki steak and chicken was very good though.

I have a particular fondness for Mei Lee Garden in Skowhegan. For years, I lived in Waterville, and occasionally on Sundays, I'd bring my elderly mother for a ride to Skow Town, and we'd always stop at Mei Lee. There used to be a "sister restaurant" to Mei Lee Garden in Waterville called "Mei Lam Lau," and the décor and... More

Ate there and was not disappointed. Wonton soup was delish! Service was good too. Food was very hot you could tell it was fresh. Yummy. We will go back again.

We were seated with just a few minutes wait on a busy Sunday at about 1pm. We waited maybe 10 minutes before a waitress appeared announcing abruptly, "I don't know who's supposed to have you or if I am, but I'll grab your order." Our drinks arrived a few minutes later, our food 20 minutes after that. We didn't see... More

Went for a late lunch the food is excellent, large portions and a great price. Our waitress was very attentive and more than on top of being sure all our needs were met. By far the best Chinese food we have had in this area. I would definitely recommend this establishment to others.

For some reason small town Skowhegan has 4-5 Chinese restaurants. This one is by far the best. It is clean and the staff is friendly. There is plenty of seating and large parties are welcomed. The atmosphere is private with dim lighting.

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant, every visit has been enjoyable, more than filling (I always take some home), and the prices reasonable!
