    First time going. Food was decent. I went for my best friends bday brunch and they were pretty busy. The food was okay for the price but honestly wasn’t really worth it. All and all it’s a good place to try if you’re interested

    This review is for foodies. The food’s not the best here. If you know what bulgogi is, this menu might not be for you. Cocktails were also not very sophisticated or good frankly. However, we had a great time and I don’t want to poo-poo this place. Lovely staff. Fun, almost cluby ambience, live dj, party lighting. Obviously a fun time for friends, maybe a birthday party. But the menu needs work.

    food and drinks were excellent. We were celebrating a birthday and The birthday cake that we brought with us was given to our server, she brought it out with sparklers lit without checking to see if we were ready as some had left the table . We felt a bit rushed which diminished the experience .

    The small plates were amazing! The Korean crispy chicken and shrimp bao buns were very good, but the entrees were not. We ordered the pineapple Thai shrimp, which was too sweet, and the kung pao with shrimp, which was not tasty.

    The ambiance was nice but it’s a tight space, not much room to take photos but it’s cute for a girl’s brunch. Service could have been better, the staff was not attentive, had to request to order my food as I waited over 10 mins after being seated for someone to take my order (that’s a long time to wait when there’s a dining time limit). After I informed the host (who gave the best service of them all in my opinion) he took care of it and i had no issues after that. They didn’t hound me about the dining time limit after I got the notification that it was time to leave the table and finish my experience at the bar. So for that I am grateful. I don’t see myself dining here again though because my chicken was fried too long and I barely finished my chicken and waffle meal. The price and the quality of food didn’t match but overall, I’m glad I tried this restaurant since tik tok blew it out lol but it’s more for the younger crowd that’s into loud music. Definitely not a date or an intimate spot.

    The best thing about this place is getting the small plates. We kinda of ordered to much food for two so I’d stick with 3-4 small plates and call it a day.

    First/last time at this restaurant. Service to me is beyond important. Jenny our server was extremely rude loud talking and not a great listener. She rushed us the entire time because it was closer to closing shift. She talked about us to her co workers. It was not loud inside so we heard everything. The gm had to cover up her rude behavior stating she speaks that way. Not expectable. Had check 1 then gratuity was added to check 2 bec she assumed we were not gonna tip bec she was rude. 4 people! If I can only rate this place a .2.

    I ordered a glass of champagne after inspecting the glass I realized the glass was dirty. I was going to tell my server but he was busy with other tables and was not very attentive. So I went to the bar where the drink was made. I let them know the glass was dirty and that I wanted a new glass and I would wait there for them to make it. To my surprise the bartender was extremely rude and scolded me wanting to wait for my new drink there. He kept saying your server will take care of you. I responded that I would rather wait here because it was going to take another 15 minutes for my drink to arrive. He got very nasty and began to roll his eyes and make negative comments. I spoke with a manager and he said he would handle it. The other guest for the brunch felt uncomfortable and uneasy so we decided to leave. Horrible experience! Poorly lit establishment, loud DJ and unprofessional staff.

    This was my 1st time at Mei Mei. It's a beautiful spot. There were 4 of us in my group. 2 of us never received our food. So after an hour we decided to cancel, pay for the food we did receive and leave. The server didn't give a good reasons for us not receiving our food other than kitchen forgot. 🤷🏾‍♂️ smh Then, there were 2 females doing their hair at the table next to us. And I am not exaggerating! They were literally combing their hair! They didn't offer to comp our drinks or anything! So my friend complained and they comped us 2 of 8 drinks smh. I have a feeling this is not the norm but I doubt if I will be going back anytime soon.

    I’ve been here before for dinner and happy hour and the food and ambiance was 10/10, so I naturally had high hopes for brunch. The only good thing I have to say is about our waitress who was amazing. The food was not good, I had the stiffed French toast that tasted like it was fried in a pan with chicken green, my friends had the chicken and waffles the chicken breast was huge but the waffles were dry. They brought out the sides first then a while later the main dish and legit when the table was clear the remaining eggs. I was severely disappointed and would never return for brunch I am so traumatized I may not ever return.
