    I sure wish I would have read the reviews here before ordering. I've never ordered delivery from Mee Mah before, only dine in. I now know why. I placed my order via grub hub at 5:21pm with an estimated delivery time of 6:28pm. At 6:50 I called Mee Mah to see where my food was. The young man who answered the phone said my order would be there in 10 minutes. I then said "my order was supposed to be here at 6:30 please tell me that my food hasn't been sitting in the delivery guys car for half an hour." The young man responds with "oh no, he just left the kitchen NOW". Seriously???? My mongolian beef BETTER knock my socks off or I'm going be one unhappy girl.

    Local Chinese restaurant which has served the neighborhood for a couple decades now. Tiny dining room with dated decor reminiscent of the 80's and a parking lot that suits four cars. Service is lackluster just as the food is and the wait time for food whether you dine in or out is typically tedious. I've tried to like them on many occasions typically joining locals for dinner. I think it's neighboring folks that think their food is worth mention, I travel and have transportation and therefore do not share the sentiment. What it comes down to is the type of Chinese food you are wanting to eat, Cantonese & Mandarin styles are whats served here. Their flavors and tastes have never worked for me, always being too bland and flavor less. I consider Mee Mah a step better than the typical take outs found in any strip mall near you with the outrageously full colored picture menus and food served in Styrofoam.

    I was in the mood for some shrimp egg foo yung and maybe a yummy egg roll so I thought I'd take a chance on Mee Mah again. I hadn't eaten there in years so I was hoping it was still good. I was not disappointed. Not the absolute best I've ever had but a close second or third. I ordered for all of us so they were all my favorites. We had the egg foo yung, egg rolls. bbq pork, mongolian beef and crab rangoon. The only thing I didn't like was the rangoon. It was just okay. Everything else was great. Also, we did not experience the long wait for delivery that others have in their reviews. I ordered at 7 and we were all done eating by 8. Seriously, I think they got here in 20 minutes. So, yes, I would order from them again.

    Stopped at Mee Mah, with my road crew, and was very pleased with the lunch specials. Each special was reasonably priced, an came with a soup(which was excellent), an eggroll(home made full of meat ect.), and the main course, and tea with cookies. For around $7 each, the meals were fresh, and service was friendly and quick. I will definately return. Some of my crew were so happy, they already have reurned with thier families. I will return when I am working in the area.

    Mee Mah! I love the name, it just rolls off your tongue! Their food always comes fast and fresh! The crab ragoons are homemade and well worth the fried food guilt:) The Mongolian beef is by far the BEST I've ever had, I'm disappointed when I order it any place else, because it doesn't taste like Mee Mah's.

    I loved this restaurant! Now I just like it when it comes to the food; it has gone down slightly since we started coming here in the late 80s but I have nothing to complain about it really. Just don't get something you can get at some $4 greasy takeout place try something more exotic and you won't be disappointed :) The service has remained very very good! My mom became friends with the owner some 10 years ago so maybe I'm a little biased but I don't take back anything. My parents live two blocks away from this place so it's also the ideal for our family to throw parties here. We've had three and service was always good for big crowds as well. I also think they have some of the best bubble tea here in the city but I haven't had it elsewhere in Chicago yet. The tapioca balls are soft and chewy and not frozen like I've had at Evo Cafe in Champaign.

    I never knew this place existed until a classmate asked me join her on a chilly day. We went for a lunch and offered lunch specials which is always nice. I usually stick to my non healthy sweet and sour chicken because I then force myself to work out twice as much the next day. The dish was excellent, I also appreciate the ladies going by refilling my water and hot tea. Will go back without a doubt.

    People - Noooooooo! This place is super-freaky bad! BF and I were having a Chinese food jones one day and I thought "hey! Mee-Mah! Close by, cool name, they serve Chinese, how can you go wrong!" Well, buckle up children cuz this is a bumpy ride. First off we are taken in to an almost empty dining room, yet seated directly next to the kitchen and bathrooms (yummy). I order seaweed soup, which I thought was going to be like a miso - oh folks how wrong I was! This stuff looked like someone had skimmed the Atlantic and dumped it in my bowl. It was that kind of kelp that had the little hard nubs on it and OMG did it stink to high heaven. Worse than any low tide. I couldnt even eat it because, well, it was horrible, and the leaves were not cut up and so were too big to get on the spoon. Then the waitress chastized me for not eating it "oh, too authentic for you?" What? What does that even mean? Then BF's entree comes and it has a giant HAIR on top. This is when he stands up and says "OK, we are done here, lets go". The waitress comes by and tries to imply that the hair is his, except this hair was long and black whereas his hair was quite short and light brown. She then tries to give us the bill with nothing taken off the total! We threw down enough to cover the soup and a drink and walked out - without even getting a Sorry! I have to drive by this place everyday going to work and my stomach churns every time I see it - and this is like 2 years later! Yuk, Mee-Mah - Yuk to you and your hairy food.

    I LOVE this place. It is really great for simple, non-heavy Chinese food. You leave this place feeling good and satisfied and not heavy and guilty. The dishes are not overly sauced or too oily as many Chinese restaurants tend to do. They serve drinks and have a super friendly wait staff. I would highly recommend this place for someone looking for HIGH quality Chinese. It is definitely not your average take away restaurant.

    Carried out food from Mee Mah the other night. Should have known better when one of the owners was hacking up a lung and hawking up loogies for about 15 minutes while we were waiting for our food - it was absolutely disgusting!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously thought I was going to puke. The food was awful. I ended up throwing it away.

  • Greg K.

    I had heard that Mee Mah had the best Mongolian Beef in Chicago - that's a bold statement. Especially since I've had some pretty freaking good Mongolian Beef in the past. I can attest to the fact it is the best I've had anywhere! The quality of the beef is a large part of it, but the flavoring/seasoning was fantastic as well. Very friendly staff, awesome egg rolls (and MASSIVE TOO). Definitely a new fan of this long standing restaurant.

    I wish that I liked this place because I live within walking distance and there's not much else around here. My wife and I have tried this place 3 times; two take out and one sit down. I can't believe how bland and unappealing the selections are. The one time we ate there they sat us in the back, next to the kitchen. That area was brightly lit and not very attractive. My wife ordered white wine, they only had chablis, which tasted like it came from a jug. The average clientle seems to be retirement age and older which adds to the extremely old school feel of this place. Not that there is anything wrong with old school Chinese, but there are better choices in this area, like Kow Kow.

    After much hype about the Mongolian beef, I had to try it. The beef pieces are large and charred with good smoky flavor. It does not have the sweetness or spicy heat nor the "glaze" like the mongolinan beef dishes you expect at other northern chinese restaurants. Still a very good dish and by far the best dish at this restaurant. The Kung Pao chicken was bland. The hot and sour soup was very good as well.

    I used to be a regular here when I worked in the neighborhood. Always have found their lunch specials to be a great value and enough for two meals. Matter of fact, we still pickup from there a couple of times a month. We've tried to find some other place that we like as much, but haven't. We like the Chicken Chow Mien Cantonese style, comes with pan fried noddles. which are very tasty. We also like the sweet and sour chicken. They don't over batter the chicken, they use good sized white meat, no fatty weird unidentifiable pieces. They don't turn them into dough balls. They do deliver at lunch time to area businesses. I don't know about later in the day.

    This place has some odd pink lighting. At first you feel like you're in a pack of bazooka joe, but I guess your cones get saturated eventually and everything looks normal again. However, I'm glad because it seems I've finally found a decent Chinese place north of Argyle, and I live north of Argyle so that works out perfectly. This place isn't perfect, but it's solid. Food: Egg drop soup was slightly better than average - you can add some soy sauce for a richer, more flavorful bowl. The egg rolls were very good, greasy as hell, but good. The entrees were mixed: one was amazing and one was was pretty bad. These reviews are spot on when they rave about the Mongolian beef. It's in the top 2 I've ever had. I don't know what the Mongols do to their beef... but it was a great dish. (obviously, I doubt that any Mongols know what Mongolian beef even is, unless they've been to a Chinese restaurant in the US.) The Kung Pao chicken was a travesty. It seemed like they forgot to sear the chicken, so you got these amorphous blobs on your plate. Moreover, everything had that intense chickeny smell and taste; again SEAR THE CHICKEN BEFORE STIR FRYING. One thing I have to say is that I"m very impressed with the condiments. They obviously make their duck sauce, mustard, and chili sauce from scratch and it shows. They're all delicious. Compliments for that alone... Service: The ladies are very nice. Kept my water glass full and were very friendly. Doesn't get any better than that. All in all, I'll be back. Just stay away from the Kung Pao.

    We were coming back from Chicago Botanic Gardens with our two good friends and their son when we decided to get Chinese food. This place is their go to restaurant and so we decided since we were going back to their house, why not! Am I glad that we did! I ordered the duck and was instantly in heaven! It was delicious. It was the whole damn thing cut up nice and pretty for me. The other dishes ordered were Mongolian beef, orange chicken and crab rangoon. I didn't try anything else because I only wanted the duck. It was so much food that I had it again the next day. I can't wait to go back soon. I need me some duck!

    I have been eating at Mee Mah's since i was 12, i am 32 now. During this time i have had the pleasure of the same waitress the entire time. They have a back room which is great if you have kids and want them out of the main dining area. I also took my wife on our first date here many years ago. From the Poo Poo platter to the Shrimp in Lobster sauce i have never had a bad meal or bad service. They have delicious egg rolls and the combination fried rice is good. I am also a big fan of there sweet and sour chicken. They dont over fry the chicken at all and give big chunks of pepper, pineapple, and tomatoes. My wife really enjoys their chicken sub gum with the cantonese pan fried noodles. The pricing is not expensive compared to other places with similar quality.

    Haven't eaten here for ages, for good reason. The first and last time I ordered carry out from here, I couldn't believe what a soupy mess I got! Look, I know my Chinese food. I've had some of the best all over the world. I've also had some of the worst--and it may have been from this place. My Chinese friends tell me that Americans like their Chinese food this way. If that's the case, how sad.

    Always a great meal. the mongolian beef is the best and empress shrimp is another good bet. I also enjoy the hot and sour soup.

    It was nice to be able to sit down and enjoy a Chinese take-out style meal in a cozy, old-school setting. Our waitress was an absolute doll, and the service was super attentive, our water glasses were never empty. The huge, fresh egg roll, Mongolian beef, and shrimp friend rice were exceptional; the other dishes were a little more hit-or-miss. Fun evening out, definitely worth another go!

  • Chris C.

    I should note that this review only applies to carry-out, as I've never eaten-in at Mee Mah. Food here is good to very good, and the price is on the inexpensive side. Chop Suey, Egg rolls, and Fried Rice are some of my personal favorites. Certainly the best in this area, and leagues better than Kow Kow.

    I used to come here all the time w/my family when I was a kid. Since I take day classes at Northeastern, I decided to give it a try on my break a few weeks ago. It was lunch time, and they have great and inexpensive lunch choices. You get tea, an eggroll and soup w/your entree. I got the veg soup was just kinda flavorless with some chunky vegs in it. Then I had the Sweet and Sour Chicken w/Fried Rice. The rice was really good, and the chicken was good, all white meat. The only downside was some of the bigger pieces were ice cold in the middle. Kinda grossed me out. I brought the rest home for my hubby. The best part was the eggroll, it was fresh and crunchy and not greasy. They had a sign next to me on the wall advertising their fresh fruit smoothies. They looked really good, maybe if I go back again I'll have one.... Pros - Inexpensive, Plentiful, Yummy egg roll! Cons - Cold chicken, wierd soup....

    mongolian beef, egg rolls, chicken fried rice are all SPOT ON fantastic. i've tried a couple of their chicken dishes and they were just meh which is the only reason i can't give them five stars. seriously though, get the mongolian beef. you MUST.

  • Matt C.

    I really think it should be three and a half stars, it was pretty good, the waitress was nice, the atmosphere was ok, there was NO music of any kind, which i do kind like some backround tunes while i am eating. I got the ginger beef which had a lot of that pickled ginger in it, not fresh grated ginger like i was hoping. It was not bad, but dad liked his ok. I will update this review, i think this pace deserves another shot.

  • Risto D.

    have been wanting to try this place for a long time now. so finally we gave it a try on monday afternoon. got there around 530, were sited right away since there was people on 2 tables only. no background music kinda threw me off a bit because i do not like people that are loud in restaurants. i go to restaurant to enjoy a meal, NOT to listen to some other older folks complaining about their miserable life. food is good it comes in good portions, it is cheap. maybe we picked the wrong day/time to go there but i think next time i will just order a carry out

  • Nisa D.

    Its an OK place for Chinese, we tried the meal for 2 and i think it was 23 dollars. Food was alright i really liked the crab ragoon and the egg rolls are huge. Will go back if we are in the area again.

    When I think of what great Chinese food should be, I think: comforting, fresh, and delightful. Meals from Mee Mah are all of those things! This might sound like bs, but I believe when someone puts love into food, you can taste it. Mee Mah's food is full of pride, care, and love. It's true, Their Mongolian beef is the best. It's soft and tender, with nice heat, and even has a subtle char which I LOVE. Their eggrolls are enormous, more like 2 eggrolls. I couldn;t finish mine but I look forward to finishing it for lunch :) Another favorite dish of mine is the Mee Mah delight. It's shrimp, pork, and chicken in a light garlic sauce with veggies. Just perfect flavor without being too heavy. Bottom line, after my 2nd meal from Mee Mah my boyfriend and I are now loyal customers. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because their egg drop soup was pretty watery and bland. But every other aspect is so great, I don't care.

  • L S.

    Mee mah's serves really delicious food. It's no wonder everyone raves about their eggrolls (which are divine)! I quite enjoy the ambiance, it reminds me of a time capsule of sorts. The service is always friendly and fast. Their hot and sour soup leaves something to be desired, but the broth is good enough to make it acceptable. Love the tea!

  • John L.

    I ordered several items for pick up. When I got back home with the food, I found that my white, round container of Shrimp and Broccoli was only 1/2 full. That was supposed to be the Large order. I wonder if the Small order would have even completely covered the bottom of the container. I also ordered the Sweet and Sour Chicken for my wife. The chicken breading was tough and the chicken was dried out. It's as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp all day. On the bright side, the Shrimp and Broccoli tasted good. I wish I could say I had a better experience.

    Love this place! Egg rolls are Aaamazing (yes, aaamazing)! I usually order their orange peel chicken, but have tried other items on the menu which were very good. We usually drink more than one pot of tea with our meal, it's delicious! The decor is vintage and very well kept up for its age, which shows the care they surely put into their food.

    We love this place. The food is solid, the drinks are very good, but the service and people keep us coming back. It is decorated like a place you'd find in NYC circa 1975. It's a cult favorite. Try the Mai Tai and the Mu shu pork. And blast the Streisand.

  • Tara P.

    Went for lunch last week. Lunch menu very cheap. Ordered vegetable delight. Bland, bland, bland. Vegetables drenched, smothered with thick sauce that was tasteless. Looked unappetizing and could hardly eat it. I had to pick out the vegetables drowning in the sauce. Partner ordered cashew chicken, had the exact same sauce on it, smothered and drenched also. It was really tasteless. Egg roll was good though and vegetable soup just o.k. Basically food was icky. Couldn't understand waitress. Had to repeat order over and over, and couldn't understand a word she said either. I kept asking her to repeat what she said over and over again. Won't be going back again. Have no desire to give another chance, or try anything else on the menu. It is very clean inside though.

    I love this place it 's one of my fav lunch spots. The egg rolls are big and delicious, the Mongolian Beef is delightful and the decor is very attractive. Not to mention they serve alcoholic beverages which are jus as good as the food. This is good for a business meeting or a nice wine and dine dinner.

    I absolutely love this place I always lunch or dinner at Mee Mah when I am in the area-The menu options are many and the food and service is second to none. My favorite dish is the SHRIMP KOW this comes with egg roll and soap. I very highly recommend Mee Mah Resturant.

  • Pam D.

    I should have my head examined. After several years, I decided to give Mee Mah another chance. Truth be told, I was so in the mood for pressed duck, and years ago, I used to have it there on a regular basis. So, I broke down and put in an order for delivery. This time the delivery was prompt. Mom had the chicken lo mein which was ok. I, of course, had the pressed duck. It was so salty, as to be inedible. I ate one piece and pitched it out. NEVER AGAIN, this time for sure, pinky promise. I will NEVER order from Mee Mah again. Period, end of story.

    What. Continuing my adventure of trying to find worthwhile places to eat in North Center - I turned to Mee Mah. The closest eating establishment short of the vending machines in our cafeteria. I was feeling leery about going to somewhere with just 3.5 stars but it was so close ... Well, it was terrible. 3.5 stars is extremely generous. If this was the first time I'd eaten Chinese food, I would never eat it again. I got: egg drop soup: bland, but at least it was warm and had actual egg flavor tea: flavorless hot liquid egg roll: it is, as several people have mentioned, very large, but lacking in flavor. The sweet & sour sauce was also bland. mongolian beef with steamed rice: I ordered fried rice, but at this point I'd already given up. The rice was over cooked. The beef ... tasted more like "processed beef substitute" than something that actual was part of a cow once. Completely bland. The waitress had asked if I wanted it spicy and my "no" was apparently taken to mean that I didn't want any flavor at all. A profoundly watered down "Chinese food" experience. I wanted to call in sick for the rest of the day so I could go to Lao Hunan/Schezwan/Beijing and restore my faith in the cuisine.

    I'm very surprised about some of the negative reviews. I just hopped on to get the number for pick up. It is our favorite Chinese food! We live far out of the delivery range, but we had a massive craving. My husband is making the 25 minute drive - in a BLIZZARD - that's how good it is!

    Their Mongolian beef and Mongolian chicken are the best I have had. I like that there is an option for smaller eggrolls. Potstickers are good. Sops are good. Egg foo Yung and crab Rangoon are very tasty. A quiet place. If you are free during the day, this is a very nice place to have a quiet lunch and they have special pricing then also. Limited parking. Bathroom is ok. Very friendly staff who will substitute or do whatever they can to get you what you want.

    I have been going to Mee Mah for years and up until the last few times every thing has been good. The last couple of times we have ordered we have found the food to be bland. We had taken some time off from there but decided to order tonight. I ordered the beef and broccoli and my husband ordered Seasame Chicken what we got was Beef and Broccoli and Cashew Chicken and on top of that both were very bland. And for the price you pay the amount of food was small. The egg rolls and pot stickers were good but we will not be going back anytime soon.

    I've been eating from Mee Mah's for quite some time! I'll start with the positive... My typical order is Veggie fried rice, Sweet N Sour chicken and Veggie egg rolls in which are the best from Mee Mah's!!!! My boyfriend had the Mongolian Beef which he thought was delicious as well! Here's the kicker... we ALWAYS order their food for carry out.... Which I can reccomend highly! I decided to dine in one random day and to my surprise I had THE WORST experience EVER!!!! The waitress was so confused and a bit slow. But we managed to get through our order. A friend of mine ordered Orange Chicken and I ordered the Sweet N Sour chicken as usual. When she received the Orange Chicken it looks extremely unusual! So she tasted it and to her surprise it was terrible! This "Orange Chicken" was Sweet N Sour chicken cut into strips smothered in Sweet N Sour sauce with a bunch of orange peels and slices thrown all over the dish!!!! Clearly NOT orange chicken you'd get anywhere else! My friend who does not like Sweet N Sour chicken so naturally did not like the "Orange Chicken." We asked the waitress to take back the dish and replace it with Mongolian Beef. She called the manager over and here's where the fun begins!!!!! The manager asks what's the problem and we explain our issue with the dish in which she states... "Orange chicken is exactly the same as sweet n sour chicken and you should know that, everyone knows that so we can take it back but you have to pay for it so I'll wrap it to go". We were not having that! We told her we were not paying for Sweet N Sour chicken disguised as Orange Chicken! The manager then tells us "so because you don't like it you do think you have to pay for it, you can't do this anywhere in the world". I was frustrated by this point so I told her were sending it back and not paying for it and that's that. She tells us "you're not my kind of customers so don't come back" walks away and asks the table right next to us and the table next to them "do you guys have any problems like these people" the tables respectfully said everything was fine. She proceeded to tell them "they're not my kind of customers can you believe them" right in our face!!!!! HOW RUDE!!!!!! I would never dine in again!!!!!!!

    I go there for the cold seasons and only for their sizzling rice soup. It is by far the best rice soup I tried in the city and definitely different. One of my friends always orders sweet and sour chicken and swears by it. The place is poorly lit and has the small dining feel, but I can't see it after the soup is in front of me:)

  • Ricardo C.

    This is the worst Chinese place EVER!!! We ordered Orange chicken which had a gelatinous consistency with cherries!! (WTF) and no orange whatsoever. Batter was 2 inch thick and barely chicken. Fried rice was not good, how do you make a bad fried rice owning a Chinese restaurant? Tofu sucked, it was slimy and bad in flavor. The sesame chicken was really bad as well, the sauce didn't taste anything Sesame....it was just BAD. Flavorless and horrible. Maybe if you go to Mee Mah by accident, order a cookie, those are not that bad. NEVER COME HERE! It's expensive and horrible.

    I absolutely LOVE the Mongolian beef here (spicy please!) and egg rolls. Their egg rolls are always fresh and crunchy and their Mongolian beef is VERY tasty. The vegetables are fresh and the meat is tender. The owners and waitstaff are wonderful as well. I never ordered carry out because they don't deIiver to my area. :( Seems like I may not be missing much after reading all these negative reviews about their delivery. I wouldn't want to be disappointed by this place I like so much. I give it four stars only because I have not yet found any other dishes on the menu that match the Mongolian beef.

  • Mary C.

    I've lived near this place for years and never went in. I always thought it was a cute building, but never stopped by. Maybe it looked closed or something. One night, we changed that. We were looking for a place that was open for dinner after 8 pm in the Saugnash area. After reading fabulous reviews here about the Mongolian Beef I had to try it and boy I was not let down one bit. First off, when we walked in it was a half hour until closing time. Some places get annoyed when they have last minute customers right before closing time. The staff at Mee Mah were completely over-joyed to see us. The decor is like a pink floral explosion and could really use some updating. However, decor doesn't effect my opinion of a restaurant. I'm really way more interested in the food to be honest. As long as the place looks clean, which Mee Mah did, I'm happy. As soon as we were seated, we were brought hot tea (on the house). We did the dinner for two, which was a little over $20. You get crab rangoon, eggrolls and pork pieces to start. It also comes with wonton soup. The wontons tasted homemade and the broth was tasty without being too salty. We opted for Mongolian Beef & Pork Egg Foo Young. The Mongolian Beef was easily the best version of this dish I've had. The meat was charred nicely and not mushy and tasteless like most places. It had a good level of kick and there was no MSG-filled sauce. The pork egg foo young was good, but this type of dish is very old fashioned. The real winner was the beef for sure! The meal was followed up almond cookies and forture cookies. Service was great too. Our server was so happy we were first timers and told us a little about the restaurant and it's history. I will definitely be back for more Mongolian Beef.

    I come here since this place is close to where I work. In fact, a lot of people from my office come here when they want good Chinese. I'm not a regular here nor am I a huge Chinese food enthusiast, but when I come, I usually have a narrow range of menu choices that I like. Best thing here: Mongolian beef. Each piece of meat is seared to perfection and has excellent roasted flavor. Whether you go for white rice or fried rice, both are great with Mongolian beef. I also like the orange chicken. when you sit down at the table, you receive a pot of tea and little bowl-cups to drink from. While I'm not a tea drinker, I'll have some from time to time. And you always have the choice of ordering an egg roll appetizer. As Stella S says, the egg rolls are yummy indeed at this place! After the meal, you also receive a plate of good cookies too, besides the routine fortune cookies we all expect. I dropped it a star in an updated review since hte last time we walked in it smelled like sewer gas in the entrance. That and Carolynne's hairball story makes me think twice about returning here too often.

    Sometimes I take awhile to write a review to see what important elements I can recall. I made an order off GrubHub and remember that the food took longer than even the stated estimated time of arrival, which is pretty rare, since every other restaurant beats it. Regardless of this, the orange chicken was manageable, however I found the BBQ pork fried rice to be very good, It had been awhile since I had any, and it hit the spot. The price was not all that compelling, and the wait being overboard renders me skeptical as to whether I shall order again. I really don't get why they take so long to deliver even if it's dinner time when I am about 1.5 miles away.

    This restaurant is close to my husbands work and I wish it was a whole lot closer to our house. It is by far our favorite chinese food around - the egg rolls are delicious and HUGE! and we have never had an inferior dish here and we have sampled much of their menu. The XL fried rice is enough to feed an army for a reasonable price. If you like delicious chinese take-out then this is the place for you!

    I ordered via grub hub and at 1 hour and 45 minutes they told me another 20 minutes. The crazy person on the phone even argued and lied to me about the time I placed the order. I cancelled the order and I will never order from this place again. Instead of being apologetic she told me that they were too busy, like that's MY problem.

    I will start by saying i cant believe this place has even managed 3 1/2 stars! I only give it ONE because i have no other choice. it actually kind of frightens me that people give this four stars. Called in for delivery. First , food took over an hour to arrive and it was pretty much all downhill from there. Crab rangoon was all won ton and cream cheese. egg rolls, meh, they were huge but meh. i ordered chicken almond din meal. Not too sure what the "Din" part meant but pretty much assumed it was almond chicken and rice? instead what i got was a tiny container of gross looking chicken, some almond slices all swimming in a rotten fishy garbage liquid/oil? no idea what it was and gagged after one half bite that only consisted of a piece of water chestnut/some of that garbage fishy oil. yuck. i actually was kept awake that night by the gross after-taste of that half-bite. Then to make matters worse i came here to good old yelp and seen some of the disturbing hair in food reviews and am grossed out even more. Thanks mee mah!

    Mee Mah is one of my favorite places to eat north of Argyle Street. Good food & relaxed atmosphere. They do have lunch specials, but I still tend to order off of the menu. The dish that I like the best is Szechuan Eggplant with Shrimp. (If you are a vegan, I know they'll prepare it without...but the shrimp sets it off.) Another dish that works well is the Orange Beef. It isn't very Chinese, but I also like the pineapple sherbet when I finish the meal...especially in the spring and summer. I'll agree with reviewer Pete K. when he says that after spending time in Asia, the food isn't 100% the same. The staff here is nice and the only time I run into a delay is during the lunchtime rush. There are two dining rooms. During the nighttime, it seems that 17th District plain clothes officers likes to hang onto the back room for planning their strategies needed to make Sauganash safe. Their off-street parking is tight, so be aware.

    This was one of the more horrifying dining experiences that I have ever had. I had dined there once before, and went back because my girlfriend enjoyed the place. On my second visit, I found a lovely surprise in my General Tao's Chicken. I don't know if we did anything to offend the cook, but I found a big black hair in my dinner. I showed it to our server and she tried to play it off. No apology, no nothing. First of all, my girlfriend was already halfway through her dinner when my entree arrived, so I wasn't going to wait another 20 minutes for another entree. I told the server to just cancel my order. And the second lovely surprise is that they charged me for the meal. I was quite livid, but I didn't want to make a scene in front of my girlfriend. It's one of the only time's in my life where I didn't leave a tip. So if you like bland food with a nice DNA sample included, feel free to try Mee Mah. Other than that, take my advice and stay away.

    For what delivers around here, this is one of the better ones. I always order their Mongolian Chicken; it's really good, as is the Green Beans & Onion. The egg flower soup is a real disappointment - mostly broth, with a tiny amount of egg and a few scallions. The main reason for the low rating is their delivery service. If you're placing an order for delivery, make sure that you allow plenty of time. Every time I've ordered from them, they've never been on time. Case in point: we ordered from them tonight, and are still waiting for the delivery - they estimated about an hour and 10 minutes when I ordered, and they're now 20 minutes late. I live 2 miles from this restaurant. Last time we ordered and it was late, we called the restaurant and it arrived 5-10 minutes later; this time, I'm not going to try not to call so I can find out how long their delivery time really is. Oh, one more thing - I ordered once and they substituted broccoli & onions for the green beans (they were out), without contacting us first. The problem here is that I don't eat broccoli, and would have just omitted it from the order had they bothered to call. They did, however, give me a credit for the green beans for a later order. If it's between Kow Kow and Mee Mah, Mee Mah will win out every time. But if you want real quick delivery, call Eng's instead.

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
