We eat only dimsum in this restaurant and really cannot praise these items enough ! We try to go at least once a month and gladly drive more than 60 miles round trip from our home to Antwerp for this delicacy !
Har kaw , shumai and potstickers are simply great and freshly made ( numbers 1 , 2 and 11 on the dimsum menu ;)) ) We try different other dimsum-apart from #1,2 and 11- on each visit but always make our own choices and do not go for the "menu" .
Do not expect a nice interior nor very friendly welcome , especially the dragon ladies who run this place are short and grumpy to "gwai lo"鬼佬 , but this is a restaurant where you go for great dimsum and try to eat as if you are in a authentic chinese restaurant .

OK, the food served is not bad but not original nor overwhelming.
We had the signature menu with 7 dim sum (3 steamed which were good, 3 fried , 1 baked) and 3 main dishes to share. No dessert. €30/pp.
The restaurant is situated at the end of a seedy street, in the depressing station quarter. The interior urgently needs a make-over as does the toilet.
40 years ago one could find excellent Chinese restaurants in Antwerp, they have moved elsewhere.

No need to check out Fong Mei if you look for a cosy interior or first class service. But oh boy do they serve great Chinese food! Fong Mei is certainly among the most authentic Chinese restaurants in Belgium. Try the large dim-sum selection.

Good value for Dim Sum,
not for the noodle dishes.
If Chinese people go eat there, it must be a good place. :-)
Try the egg rolls, ha kauw, rice in leaf.

Enjoyed lunch here with the family. We had the menu of the chef (30€ per person).
It started with a large & original variety of dim sum, the house specialty (7 pieces each). Just delicious!
The main courses included duck, shrimps, pork chops, squid, bami and rice. All prepared in a special way. We we're able to eat all and asked for a doggy bag.
So if you like Chinese food and you're looking for a restaurant that surprises you with original preparations, this is the place.
Service was very good and friendly.
