What a disappointing experience. All the food tastes the same! Bland. Waitress/owner(?) was not understanding out order because brought one wrong dish. I am not a fan of having children running into and out of kitchen in a public place. And another male who appeared not to have anything to do with food, unless he was the delivery person. Decor...

This place is hopping busy on New Year's Eve. Food was okay; it was better when we were here before on a less busy day. Efficient service was organized for a steady line-up of people streaming in their door for what appeared to be a combination of pre-ordered meals and orders being placed for pick-up. We had chicken chow mein,... More

I use to order from here all the time. It was my go to place for Chinese food cause the food was good and the price is right. I usually get the dinner for 2 'A' and the last 3 times I've ordered plus friends and family have said the same thing, that the food has been off. The chicken... More

What happened to this place??? Little kids waiting on people. Disgusting food. So disappointed. This used to be an amazing place to go. The place stinks and the food is beyond awful.

We have been going to Mei King for years but our recent order made it clear that the food has completely changed - we noticed that it is much more bland and "food court" quality. Won't be back, time to start looking around for a new favourite.

We have lived around the corner from Mei King for over 20 years. It was always "Excellent". I'm guessing there are new owners. The food is now "gross"...... I suspect that everything is made off site and just warmed up. If not the cooks should be embarrassed of what they are producing. This is my second visit in the last... More

And it was absolutely terrible. The first strike was the person who answered the phone gave me the wrong total $37.70 but once delivered it was $47.70. Ordered fried shrimp with lemon and got french fries with shrimp and an extra charge for lemon that was never received. The rest of the meal was at best terrible. When we called... More

My husband and I have been regulars for years but there was a definite change in the food quality last night and not for the better. The General Tso chicken was always my favourite and what was served, were fried balls of dough in sweet and sour sauce with no chicken to be seen, not the tender pieces of chicken... More
