This is place runs by husband and wife team .when the place get crowded , the wife ( waitress) becomes uptight and customers can potentially be treated a little rude . Good to call ahead to order, if too crowded , she will tell you don't bother to come ( better this way ). The food is the best home... More

Most Chinese restaurants in Pittsburgh are American-Chinese style. Ka Mei serves authentic Cantonese cuisine that one can only find in Cleveland or New York City Chinatown. The food is excellent and is not too salty. The place is very small. It has a few rectangular tables; and no large round tables (banquet tables). The food is in the pricy side,... More

In Pittsburgh, it is really difficult to search for great delicious Japanese and Chinese restaurants, but this restaurant has a super nice wonton soup and delicious foods. This restaurant is one of the most delicious Asian food restaurants in Pittsburgh. Cost performance is also nice.

They have a great variety of food. I ordered rice noodle with shrimp but they did not have the rice noodle in hand and had to eat chow fun instead. Chow fun with shrimp was okay. My husband ordered squid with Chinese broccoli and it lacks taste and it was full of broccoli. I think broccoli did not cook properly.... More

My wife and I enjoyed this Chinese restaurant. It is family owned where the husband and wife do the cooking and the serving. The variety of food was excellent. Everything is cooked to order using only the freshest ingredients. Our part of 4 ordered several dishes and not one bit of food was left to take home.

I'm used to spicy Chinese food so you have to know not to expect spicy food here. It's more like down-home food that my mom (originally from Taiwan while dad's from Hong Kong) would make. My family loves the salt pork - boneless pork rib in a salt n pepper type style - dry rub. We tried the roast pork... More

This is the most authentic Chinese food you will find in Squirrel Hill. If you are not familiar with Hong Kong style cuisine, you may find KaMei unfamiliar. Prices are great and portions are great for sharing. The only difference between KaMei and the usual Hong Kong diner is that it isn't open late.
