My family and I dinned-in at Mei Inn in early April 2017 after a day-long visit to the Cities. We were in the area and looking for decently priced, well-rated Chinese. The food was okay, a solid "B", but some of the dishes were better than others. The Wonton Soup was excellent, and the Kung Pao Chicken was also very... More

I have been ordering takeout from here for about a year and a half now, they have the best wonton soup!! Most places don't offer much more than the wontons in their soup, here they include bok choy, carrots, roast pork and pea pods as well. Overall everything I've had is pretty good - wings, BBQ pork, fried rice, pan... More

Years ago a former boss taught me that some of the best places to eat don't look like much on the outside, and they may be lacking in fancy decor on the inside. However, the food speaks (loudly) for itself. He said to pay attention to how many cars are parked outside. Or in Mei Inn's case, how many to-go... More

We had Pineapple chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein, Pork Chow Mein and Happy Family. Of course, we had to ask for take... More

It's a bit dingy inside, but it's clean enough, and friendly. Not a place I'd take company, but okay for a quick meal.

I can't believe I've lived 2 miles away from Mei Inn and am just trying it. I got the chicken with garlic sauce and it was delicious! The egg rolls are good, the wontons are fabulous and I can't believe the prices! They are very cheap and the food is delicious! Inside there was an article on how they have... More

Ive eaten at all the minnesota chinese places and this is a great bang for the buck. Its kinda ghetto but the combo deals are around 7-8$ and if ur a moderate eater u can get almost 3 meals out of it. The wings are great, as the subgum wonton soup.
