“The worst restaurant ever!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Horrible food, bad drinks and bad service. Ordered fried wontons and they had old pork stuck to them, told the waitress and she said "so they tasted bad?"Um duh, that's just wrong and gross! Dinner plates came to us in less than 3 minutes, can you say microwaved leftovers! Overcooked dried out leftover food, nasty! Bunch of teenagers running a restaurant at very high prices. STAY AWAY!

“Our New Fave Chinese Resturant”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

They have great food and the food is out very quick. Be sure to get everything that you want though because they are not goo in returning to your table to refill anything. Next time I think that I will ask for an extra water. The food and the chef makes up for it though.

“Lacking in customer service and management”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

I have been to Mei Lee Garden several times but I find their food very average. Tonight I found their customer service to be very rude and inconsiderate and the manager on duty had no customer service skills herself. I will probably never visit this establishment again.

Busy or not treat your customers with respect! It is our money that pays your salary....

“The best Chinese restaurant in the state!”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Great food! Great prices. Quiet location. The only place I go for Chinese anymore! The restaurant is easily missed so keep an eye out for the sign.

“Best Chinese restaurant in town.”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

We are regulars there for lunch, and frequently have take out at night from there. Staff is fabulous - very attentive to our needs. They even rush orders through at lunch if someone has an appointment too tight for a casual lunch. The new ownership has brought some new life. Some recipes were altered, but when we talked with Philip, the new boss, about one in particular - the hot and sour soup - the old chef showed the new owners what he used to do, and now it is back to its usual. Another recipe was improved greatly. The General Tso's previously had been mainly the sesame chicken without the sesames. The new version substituted a Szchuan suace and really kicked the dish! The oldest in town - more than 30 years - and the best of the asian eateries.
