This is one of my son's favorite Chinese restaurants but it was my first visit there. We were quite hungry so we ordered from the dinner menu. My wife and another of my sons were unable to finish their meals. I however, being a member of the clean plate society, pushed on until I finished. Everything was prepared deliciously.

We will never eat here again. I am rather tolerant of restaurants that are subpar. The food was the worst Chinese food I have ever eaten. Dumplings tasted like undercooked dough. My Hunan Shrimp was drowning in sweet and sour sauce; (I've never seen anything like it...it was like sweet and sour soup, with a little bit of shrimp and... More

I'm sorry you were displeased with your experience. However, to shed some light on our food: Hunan Shrimp is a long time traditional dish, our recipe is our own, but for reference: http://georgefamily.net/cookbook/71Shrimp.html http://quickiefood.blogspot.com/2010/07/hunan-shrimp-recipe.html http://raeraesfood.wordpress.com/tag/hunan-shrimp/ The chicken and vegetables - Our vegetables may be on the crisper side because we use fresh vegetables per order, rather than soggy and mushy....

My girlfriend and I visited Kittery, Kennebunk, York and Kennebunkport in early October 2012. On a rainy night, we were lost and had no idea how to find the "downtown" of Kennebunk (we had just come off the freeway). We stopped and went into Mei Le Wah and the owner's son kindly pointed us in the right direction and he... More

Have dined here twice since moving here last month - excellent food, large portions and reasonably priced! I've eaten in once, the service was very fast, friendly and efficient! Take out was ready as promised, and they got the order right!!

No idea how they stay in business. Was ok when first opened up. Very poor quality food. How difficult is it to make good food, not like this place is cheap either...

My family and I live in Boston, but often visit friends in the Kennebunk area and make a point of eating at Mei Le Wah every trip. The staff are always friendly, the food is delicious with big portions and the mai tai's are a great way to unwind. We always have a great experience when we dine there and... More

We visited Maine in the off season and shouldn't have been surprised that so many restaurants were closed! So when we drove down route 1 in Kennebunk, starving, and saw a Chinese restaurant we decided to give them a shot. It was totally worth the try! We had the best crab rangoons and wonton soup ever! We also had the... More

Why good Chinese food in Maine is hard to find I will never understand, but if my kid begs for it and I'm not willing to go to Boston or Portland I will cave and eat here.

If I could give this restaurant a six in every category, I would. It's a great place to bring family and friends. The staff is friendly, and the food is super good. You won't be disappointed...I never have been!

Mei Le Wah has gone through some ownership changes in the last decade or so and when I found out that it had re-opened under direction of its original family owner, I was so excited to get in to try it out. It did not disappoint. The Mandarin Moo Shu Chicken is superb, the egg drop soup is tasty with... More
