Good choice of food and a clean kitchen but I found some of the dishes somewhat dry. It always seems busy though and I'm basing this on my two test dishes of chow mien and special fried rice.

This is an average takeaway with average quality food. It used to be my regular one, being very close to where I live, but now I have found somewhere better and go there instead.
I can't say the food is bad, but then it's nothing special either. The kitchen is visible from the ordering area and it all looks okay, so cleanliness isn't an issue. The prices are average too. If there were no other Chinese takeaways in the area, I would probably continue to use Ho Mei and I certainly wouldn't discourage anyone to go there, but there is better close by.

Went home to parents house and had a takeaway from ho mei, delivered at the time they estimated, all food tastes great, seems a very clean Chinese without MSG as I don't feel thirsty afterwards. Standout dishes are duck in plum sauce, king prawns with chilli and garlic and aromatic spare ribs.
