The food is decent but nothing to write home about. The atmosphere befits a strip mall in Provo Utah. We ordered our appetizer, and it arrived after my dining partners entree and was only half cooked. I informed the staff and they were baffled as to what to do, even after they acknowledged that the meal was cold. The rest of the meal was meh.

You order dim sum off a menu here. Taro puffs were crunchy, shanghai dumplings were perfectly seasoned, shrimp look fun was not over glutinous... Tea was weak but was included. This was decent dim sum, in an old school atmosphere - Formica tables, laminated menus, interesting walls and decorative touches, fluorescent lighting... Still a favorite. Still inexpensive.

Mei Sum was recommended to us by some locals. Very good food, nice variety & very reasonably priced. Come for the food, not the atmosphere or service.

Honolulu's Chinatown has seen a wave of dim sum palaces come and go. That's to be expected when you consider that in China dim sum are lite bites served for brunch and they carry matching small prices. It's hard to pay the rent out of a cash register ringing up low dollar checks! Meanwhile Mei Sum Dim Sum has prospered largely thanks to an extensive menu, total freshness and high quality product. We've sampled a lot of similar establishments and this is definitely the real deal
