So disappointed in Mei King since the change in ownership we have tried it 3 times since the change). It's obvious they have someone new preparing the food. The General Tso's chicken is just not that good anymore and the price is more for less food. Dumplings are blah as well. Just not the same and not worth the trip.... More

My husband ordered a hundred dollars worth of food to feed his family and everyone was happy. A week later we ordered five things from them and it was all good. I was in town a few years ago and did not like the food. The place has changed hands and now I love the food again. I wasn't going... More

We have been going here for at least 30 years. The food has always been very good, until recently. Their food isn't that great anymore and their prices have increased dramatically. Not sure if they have had a change in ownership or management but I don't recognize anyone there anymore. We will be finding another place for Chinese food and... More

This place has become very expensive and the food is terrible now. Ten years ago it was good. Avoid!

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

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.
