This is the best Chinese food I've had in a long time. When you see several Chinese frequenting a place, you know there is good reason. Menu selection is extensive. The lunch menu is a real bargain. Everything I've tried in my two visits is very good. The waitstaff is friendly, efficient and helpful. Someone is always at the door... More

We stopped by with a large family group and we were very happy with our food and service. You wouldn't think it by the look of the place on the outside but it's what's on the inside that counts! ;) Large family portions, fast service, great food.

Mei Mei is another place that provides authentic Chinese food. It might not look fancy from outside but definitely worth a visit. They refurbished in July 2016, and the interior looks bright and modern. My favorite dishes are the roasted duck (very flavorful and crispy), and the fried pork chop (only on the Chinese menu :D). The only drawback is... More

Mei Mei's got a total make over since my last review, a huge improvement. The service is awesome as it always was, it's clean and inviting even if the signature dragon doorway is gone now. The menu is varied and portions are plentiful. The lunch special offerings are awesome as ever, but with one small downside: you no longer get... More

We were welcomed right after we entered and seated immediately. The waitress took our drink order immediately, Hot tea for me and water for my wife. Both were brought out very quickly. We then started to peruse the menu since we hadn't been here before. Some friends have been and said the food was good and Yelp rates it pretty... More

We had a good Chinese meal here. We got excellent service that was prompt and friendly. As usual in Chinese restaurants, we don't order our main dishes until we have finished our appetizers or soup, or else you get everything at once (too fast and in some sort of random order). Food was really good - hot and sour soup... More

Mei Mei's is in a small strip mall and easy to miss but I'm so glad we found it. The wonton soup is the best we have ever had anywhere and the chef came out and answered a few questions about spiciness of certain main course dishes which was helpful. We decided on Moo Goo Gai Pan and Shrimp with... More

Like many others have commented, the location and decor may not be the best, but if you are going to Mei Mei for FOOD, you are definitely going to one of the best in Tucson. Greeted with a big smile and offered any open seat in the restaurant, we were given menus and asked for our drink order immediately. When... More
