Simply outstanding Chinese food. Have been coming here for decades. A favorite among Broadway musicians. Among my favorites: Cumin lamb, steamed vegetable dumplings, roast pork, roast duck, Chinese broccoli with garlic. Also terrific are their delicious home-style Chinese recipes, like eggs with scallions and shredded...beef with hot chili peppers. Pair them with the Sancerre they have on their wine list for an extra-uplifting meal!More

Have been eating here for years when in the neighborhood. My wife and I love Chinese soups as they make a great meal with the proper ingredients added. Mee Noodles special soups are unique and cannot be beat. Basically you can build your own from...a variety of bases. (This item is not on their online menu.) There are many items to add to the soup, both meat and vegetarian, All of the ingredients are fresh and tasty. One large bowl can feed 2 for less than $15. If still hungry can add a dish or an appetizer. The other dishes are OK, but soup is the reason to go!More

Very good food (I loved the Tofu Sizzling Platter), large portions and reasonable prices. Family of four ate dinner for less than $50! And we had enough leftovers to each have another meal. Staff is efficient; food was ready very quickly. I would recommend trying...MEE.More

Surprisingly, Mee Noodle Shop wasn't bad. If you want something a little better than Panda, this will suffice. The pan fried noodles are actually decent, while the other meat dishes are average.

Had dinner there tonight. Took ages for the food to come out. Ordered a chicken with garlic sauce. I couldn’t taste any garlic at all. I enjoyed the pork bun though. Overall I’d say it’s ok but overrated

I spent several weeks during the summer in NY and stumbled upon this jewel. If you like Chinese food, then this is the place to try. My daughter and I truly enjoyed our meal selections. I had the chicken with garlic sauce and brown rice....The portions were fairly large. I had enough to take with me for a midnight snack. The staff are polite and attentive. Upon returning to NY for a short weekend trip, I was able to take my husband for this experience. He loved it! He ordered the curry rice with pineapple, shrimp, chicken, and pork. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

I went to Mee years ago, and found it ironic how myself nor the person who I was dining with did not order noodles (which is what Mee is). I had it in the back of my mind to go back and order noodles. At...the previous time of visit I would rate this place pretty average. Years later I went back and found a few nice surprises: 1) The place looked a lot better than it did before. Don't get me wrong, it isn't a luxury dining environment or anything now, but back in the day it almost felt like a worn out canteen-type place. Now it is smaller (probably about half the size it used to be), and it looks better, with a bit more of nice feel. 2) I had a noodle soup dish and the noodles were really quite nice. Tasted and looked authentic and of the fresh kind (vs dried noodles that are boiled to make them edible), and I would go back to get the noodles again. Try out the noodles!More

this place is just ok for me to eat there regularly enough, but if there was another decent option close by, I'd go in a heartbeat. Nothing special

The food is wonderful. The restaurant is clean and modern. I ordered the pick three, this comes with your choice of a noodle, I chose the Cantonese Noodle, coconut curry and fish balls. The entire dish was flavorful and delicious.

Just a couple of minutes walk from Times Square. Worth checking out. Great value and tastier food than in Chinatown. We (family of 4) ate here one lunchtime. Lots of choices, friendly service, lovely food!

For an inexpensive sit down Chinese restaurant this place is a good option in Manhattan. This place rivals fast food take out places in terms of price. Three of us ate for around $30

Took visitors from China to Mee Noodle Shop and we were very disappointed with both the Sizzling Tofu and with the Pepper Steak with Onions. Poor flavor as we did not finish the meal and declined a to-go box. My Chinese guests said this restaurant...would be closed in China because the food quality is so poor they could not keep customers. And, I agree! Receipt is shown.More

I jumped in here last night for a quick meal with my mom before a show and was pleasantly surprised by how great the food and service was! After a busy, hot day of sightseeing we wanted a refreshing meal and ordered cold sesame noodles,...hot & sour soup, shrimp dumplings, and bok choy. Everything dish was flavorful and fresh! $3 select wines and beers for happy hour is also hard to beat. We ate it all, each had a drink, and had a large, filling meal for $36. Excellent deal. Looking forward to going back!!More
