We have eaten at Mee restaurant twice now. The first time was really good, but this second time was superb. We had great service from Vinicius, who served some fantastic dishes. Recommendations - the salmon sashimi with quail egg yolk, scallop sashimi, the wagyu ribs, crispy confit, the omatsuri mousse and mango sticky rice. Thanks to the sommelier, we had a lovely selection of wines that complimented the food perfectly. The atmosphere was relaxed - great music and a stunning view of the newly renovated pool. I would highly recommend an evening at Mee.

We had a varied mixture of Pan Asian food, all tasting delicious and very well presented. Thanks to the sommelier, the choice of wines were extensive and perfectly complemented the food. The restaurant deco and atmosphere were both tranquil and appropriate for the setting. The service, by Vinicius, was most professional. He explained each course and was very helpful. Junior, the manager, ensured everything was to our satisfaction. Altogether a really great end to our stay in Rio.

The food was good and I thoroughly enjoyed my prawn and vegetable tempura and the Udon was excellent . However I have to say the whole experience was blighted by the absence of a major element of my partner's main course. Rather than addressing the omission the maitre'd behaved like it was our fault! Not the service you would expect from a Michelin starred establishment. I wouldn't recommend you spend your hard earned cash with Mee! However the shining star was the charming and talented cocktail waiter who really mixed a lovely berry inspired treat!

Well used to Michelin Star restaurants and the fine dining experience they offer especially for special occasions. But also aware how on occasions they can get ahead of themselves. Often small mistakes escalate and can go into reverse at a faster speed because no one takes control to nip things in the bud! Confronting an issue rather than confrontation which for Mee maitre de was to ignore it.
Lovely cocktails from a diligent barman. Nice meal, nothing superb but acceptable. Good helpful service from Kelvin and some suggestions for improving the meal and experience.
But a main course with forgotten elements, complete denial, no attempt to instantly address the situation and then ignore the customer in the hope they'll go away without questioning things.
Lots of noisy bigger parties drinking more than us getting preferential treatment. Save your dollars real's or £€.
Please chose to go to another Chinese Indosein or Thai experience where honest owners who care will look after you better and appreciate your custom rather than the arrogant Mee Mee Mee.
