While you can sit down to eat at this restaurant I prefer & look upon it as a "take out" place. They have about 5 round tables but rarely do I see anyone eating there. It is located on a small strip mall on Carey Ave., not the prettiest of views. Aside from that the food is fresh & delicious.... More

Been to this restaurant many times and every time I order, the food is fresh and delicious and well priced to boot. Cash only, so be ready to get rid of your loose change like I always do ;-) If you need a good, quick, Chinese food this place will deliver (literally and figuratively)!

Wah Mei is average price for Chinese takeout. But the food is tasty. My husband is always happy with his general taos and the boneless bbq spare ribs, pepper steak, chicken and broccoli are tried and true favorites. Love the crab Rangoon also.

Still on the search for a Chinese takeout joint that in NEPA that stands a bit above the rest, I tried Wah Mei this week based on the reviews here. I really don't know if the other reviewers have just never had takeout from any other place, but Wah Mei has the same exact stuff as what everyone else has.... More

One of the above reviews does not apply to this restaurant because it is NOT a buffet. It's a takeout restaurant that has been in the same place since I was a kid. It's still in business because their Chinese food is excellent! I wouldn't eat there but always good for take out.

Consistently very good Chinese takeout over the past decade. Quality ingredients - not masked by bad sauces, batters or MSG. Well cooked and ample portions. Very basic tables and chairs with no decor - if you plan to eat there. Not a real destination restaurant - but if you crave some Chinese take-out you will be pleased with your meal... More
