Me Lyng needs to clean up the place a bit. The carpeting is old and worn and dirty, and the place looks overly tired. One thing, possibly unique to Pittsburgh, is the measure of egg rolls compared to the old Tea Garden Restaurant. Like Sun Penang in Squirrel Hill, Me Lyng has made a very close replica of the Special Egg Roll from the Tea Garden. It might have fewer shrimp, but the rest if all pork, no cabbage or other fillers. For those of us who grew up on the Tea Garden, this is one of the two places to go for egg rolls! We had two dishes for four people, after the appetizers, and the Mongolian beef and the Shrimp in Lobster Sauce were both good, but they were not very large. This place would rate better if they did a major overhaul of the dining room.

It's been a while since we ate there but we never had a bad experience or meal. The food was plentiful, several couples had families as well.

This place had to be absolutely the WORST place for faux Chinese food ever! I've eaten a lot of Chinese food (heck, I'm even Chinese!), even take out Chinese food, which isn't considered "real", but this place was just terrible! I would never consider going back there again nor would I recommend anyone else either! The food did not taste right and they used a lot of food coloring.

This used to be a favorite...not anymore....tablecloths were filthy...our table and the one next to ours, I mean not just a stain, they haven't been washed in a long time.....the carpet was sticky...old and gross...entry way tile is dirty....fried food was more than fried..burnt b/c the oil hasn't been changed in a while!....waitress had a skirt on that was entirely too short...not professional at all...we had to package our own take out containers..including soup...try that with a regular soup spoon at the table!....all the recipes are nearly as good as they used to be! I have had better at smaller "fast" food Chinese restaurants....this owner should be a customer for the day...he is running this place in to the ground...will not be back and will not recommend!

Very good authentic Vietnamese and Chinese food in large portions. Friendly staff and neat restaurant.
The restaurant provides a very relaxed atmosphere to be with friends and enjoy the good food. Love coming here at least once a month.
