I stopped in for a late lunch. The decor is exactly the same as it has been for decades, which I found comforting. I ordered half orders of crab rangoons and steak teriyaki. They made a fresh bowl of ginger sauce for dipping which was very good. The rangoons were well stuffed and teriyaki crisp and tasty.. I had a... More

After decades away from Mee Sum, we tried it again for "old times sake." The "Old Times" were with the previous owners. When the children took it over, they were not up to their parents level of restaurant operation. It is not necessary to detail their past efforts, because they have not only corrected past negatives, they have surpassed their... More

Good, old fashioned Chinese food with no frills. The food tastes exactly the same as it did when I first tried them 50 years ago!

The last of the old school chinese restaurants in the area. Fried Rice is awesome and the Chow Mein will make you smile. We hope it never closes!!!

Mee Sum has been there for decades and there is a reason for that. They are a great choice for in-dining Chinese food.

We've been coming to Mee Sum for many years. Not much has changed (except the prices!), this is your old school Americanized Chinese food and eating here is like entering a time machine. Fall River once had many similar establishments but sadly, this is one of the last few. Getting bread before your meal is quite rare for a Chinese... More

After we were served our chow mein sandwiches wrapped in wax paper as the tradition mandates, the owner brought us a bowl with chow mein and crispy noodles - such a warm and friendly gesture - we will surely return.

Nice place. I stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday. Twelve tables and ten of them were full! That's a good sign I thought. The food is very reasonably priced. The servings are extremely generous and the service is lightning fast. I was pleasantly shocked by how fast my food came out after I ordered it. Loved it. And get... More
