Living in Fair Lawn and like sushi-it is your restaurant. Good quality food, Place good for casual dining, good prices

Date of visit: February 2019

We’ve picked up and dined in here several times and usually had a good experience. Not tonight, and we are never going back. I placed an order for pick up and was told 20min. I arrived as the order should have been ready. It wasn’t,...it’s Friday night, busy, that’s a good thing! What’s not good is that I stood there waiting for another 30min for the food. When I finally got home, I discovered that they left out part of my order. I call to report this, and the woman tells me that they don’t offer sushi appetizer on the menu (they do, look it up). It was the first thing I had ordered. So after arguing with me about the existence of the item she concedes she made a mistake and offers me money off the bill. With respect I explain that’s kind but that I don’t want the money off, I want my food, I’m hungry! So she says she’ll make it for me and I can pick it up and it will be $5 (a $3 discount). I might be wrong, but when a restaurant makes a mistake, it’s my belief they should make it right. Deliver it and don’t charge me for the item. She yells at me that I want her to drive my food to me for free and the food should also be free? And says no, you can come pick it up and pay. For the record, the sushi is decent, not best I’ve ever had, but I do prefer it to Green Dragon in town. But after such rude customer service, I will never go back. If you don’t mind waiting for twice as long as you’re told for your food, having your order be wrong and screamed at about it, and having to pay for your replacement food, then by all means go to Mei Sushi. I’d rather drive to my standby in Lodi than deal with their horrendous practice. Shame.More

The Sushi is always fresh and the presentations wonderful. Great place for a business lunch, quiet and quaint place. A BYOB location

Great little sushi spot to have a quick lunch that is both filling and within budget because everyone knows eating out at lunch is your get-a-way time to relax and if the food is bad and price is high- that's just a mess. Mei Sushi,...is I think warm and inviting whether you eat at the bar or at a booth. Really nice lunch specials for rolls and the bento box is no joke, plenty filling. Service is really nice and polite and my glass was never empty. You should give it a try the parking on the street is hard to find but there is a lot right behind the building.More

Decided to check this place out based on a friends recommendation. The sushi was so fresh and delicious. It's BYOB! The price is reasonable and the service was fantastic. Glad we tried this place. Will return again for dine in and take out

The sushi here always is fresh. It is a small little place with a simple style and ambiance. I go here for lunch regularly. The Sushi Sashimi combo is great . It is a BYOB if you want a bottle of wine or other adult...beverage.More

Mei Sushi is a wonderful local restaurant. I have ordered takeout from this restaurant since moving to the area two years ago. The sushi has always been fresh and rolled with perfection, and take out orders are prepared quickly. The lunch specials are the best...deal, but I can get 2-3 basic rolls with miso soup for around $16 for dinner. I have not tried any of the other menu items, like noodle dishes or other main dishes, as I primarily order sushi for take out. The rolls come six a piece and have an adequate amount of fish per roll (if getting that variety). I ate in the restaurant for the first time this week with a friend and we were both pleased by the quality and service.More

I love this sushi - we go here at least once a week. Sometimes the waiters are bad, but the food is great. Perfect for takeout.

I've never had Japanese until this visit. I ordered the beef nega maki. It was delicious! The portions are perfect and service just as good. I will be ordering this again!

We went back recently and, long story short, the quality has gone way down. No fish in the spicy tuna or salmon, just panko bread crumbs, brown avocado, etc. The cherry on top was the fact that the waitress last time was so rude! She...actually sighed, rolled her eyes, and gestured when we asked her for some extra dressing. Awful experience, won't ever be back.More

So, I previously wrote a rave review for this place. The waitress was a bit rude, but it was fine. Anyway, recently I went there and got BROWN avocado in my roll. I told the waitress and she argued with me that a completely brown...piece was normal and it tasted BETTER than green...okay...no. This past time, will be my last visit there. VERY rude staff AND my spicy "salmon" roll...was completely panko bread crumbs. ZERO fish.. wow. What a rip off. The last time I'll be visiting Mei. Lost a very frequent visiter.More

Excellent sushi and great prices! My bf and I love it there! We did get some rude comments/looks when we ordered 8 sushi rolls once. We're both slim people too, so they should have minded their own business lol and it's more money for them!...But, whatever! The sushi is worth it. Sometimes they give you orange slices at the end and they have fortune cookies and dum dum lollipops when you leave! Love it there!More

Food here is very fresh. Sushi is excellent and the place is clean. The few times I have been here it was never crowded. Service is prompt. The place is not large. Prices are reasonable. The bento box lunch special is my kids favorite.
