Before when I reviewed this place I found it favorable, however, since I ordered shrimp this time I've changed my mind. The most basic thing of deveining the shrimp was completely overlooked. I do not enjoy eating the shrimp's digestive tract. It's simply a matter of cleaning the shrimp before cooking, and I don't understand why this isn't done?

I enjoyed this restaurant. The staff were very friendly. It's BYOB, and the food is reasonably priced, and certainly worth a try.

I have ordered take out form Mei Shung several times and really enjoy the selection of Taiwanese and Chinese offerings. Their fried rice is always on point and I really enjoyed their crispy fried chicken wings. I will definitely be back as the food is consistently good and prepared quickly. They also have a great lunch special which includes soup,... More

We pass by Mei Shung often but ate there only once. It's been a while, but I remember being pleased. We got dinner delivered last night (East Rogers Park) and were very pleased with the quality of our three appetizers and one entrée: HOMEMADE steamed potstickers (lots of filling) BBQ pork (hot hot peppers) chicken wings (really crispy, probably deep...

We know good Chinese when we meet it and this is it! Sizzling chicken soup sizzled and satisfied. The basil and beef in lettuce was outstanding. The mushu chicken was great! The dry fried green beans were really well done. And the shrimp with rice noodles was fabulous. A great place that we enjoy often!

We've been dining on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day at Mei Shung for years. A family tradition. It's not splashy; the mellow pastel walls, high ceiling and soft classical music are sort of soothing. Parking is tough. You can pay a few bucks for meters on Broadway or circle the neighborhood for a freebie. And there is a... More

This is my neighborhood Chinese restaurant; we take out from there every few weeks. The food is consistently good and they are fast with preparation.

This restaurants serves authentic Taiwanese cuisine. In particular, they have many tapa style small dishes that are originally found as street food in Taiwan. The dishes are well made in general. The service is friendly and helpful. A good place to go for authentic Taiwanese food.
