Yummy Chinese Food – This is a new place and it is worth the visit. We tried the steamed dumplings, the crab rangoon, the house special fried rice and the sesame chicken...everything was yummy and the prices are very reasonable! The service is fabulous and the restaurant is very clean. My new favorite place for dinner.
Bad Service – I recently had lunch with my family at this restaurant. The server brought out 1 of the 2 dumpling dishes that we had ordered within 10 minutes or so. We had also order several other entrees along with the dumplings. After we were served the dumplings, the remaining food did not make an appearance. After a long while, we flagged 2 of the surly servers down to check on the status of our order. In the interim, all the tables around us (which were seated after us) got their food. Some had even eaten and left. Needless to say, it was a horrible experience, the service was mediocre at best. Sad to say that we've been regular customers but will not be returning due to the poor service. Will spend my hard earned dollars elsewhere.
Best dumpling in Atlanta – I have lived in SF and NYC and my father is Chinese - these are the best dumpling I have ever had, out side our family recipe. Great value too.
Not so great – The restaurant looks great on the outside, but the food is not so great! I didn't find the staff very courteous either. I can't say that I would recommend this place to anyone.
regards to the readers feedback...thanks – thanks for leaving your comment about Pung Mie...Although it is real hard to satisfy everyone we try our very best...for those people that didnt enjoy their experience i am really sorry to hear but we have taken action to correct whatever we possibly can to make sure your next visit is a better one...
I do want all the readers to know that the negative comments are just as good as the positive ones because it helps us in the areas that we need improvement...but what is funny to me is that one of the negative feedback we got makes no since....although if the fried rice wasnt up to your standards we been here for 20 plus years and we never had curry chicken on our menu...so i really dont know if that guy or girl visited the right restuarant....thanks for all the feedbacks
Really awful food. – Wow this place is the bad. I didnt want to eat my food, seemed like they just put c%&p on a plate and served it. I've lived in the 30341 for years and eaten at many of the wonderful places on and around BH, but this one gets the 'yucky award'!!!
An absolute prize! – As the last reviewer stated, it's not knock-your-shoes-off, blow-holes-in-your-socks and shockingly-amazing, but Pung Mie( for all you ultra-atlantans out there, pronounced 'poong-mee) is an honestly good Cantonese restaurant. In my ripe old age of 27, I have been dining here for the past twenty(!) years with consistently great meals. Never a gripe with the service, food, or other annoying diners who think they're having a terrible time because they want to make it a terrible time so they can make a fuss on CitySearch! Recommended- hot pepper chicken, boneless.
Best Chinese Food in Atlanta – This is THE BEST restaurant on Buford Highway in Atlanta. The chef is great and the food is always fresh and delicious. Every time we need to take clients out for a great and sumptous meal we head to Pung Mie. We usually ask the owner what is the best fresh fish for the day and she will describe what is fresh and all the ways that it can be prepared. If you need a great meal remember to head out to this place. We have brought parties of 20 people out there and have been seated and served immediately. Staff is great and service is impecable. The dishes are large and we share the various dishes we order. Great place.
Yes, confirmed WORST in atlanta – This is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. Pung Mie was the worst food and worst service I have experienced. I made a reservation with a gentleman that spoke perfect English, when the group arrived they starting placing folks at a small table in the back lower level. That was an honest mistake, once they realized we all would not fit they moved us upstairs to the large round tables. This is when it was apparent it was to be a long long night out. They put one waiter on our tables, could've worked, but he had no idea what he was doing and did not seem to care, in fact this may well have been his first time EVER to wait tables; but even so his service was inexcusable. We were given three menus, we asked for more, and told they did not have more. I walked down stairs and picked up 8 menus sitting at the hostess stand (what was that about????) Orders were finally taken about hour after we sat down, then they brought them out over a 20 minute time frame...actually it was kind of funny. The waiter would walk out with one dish and not know where to put it and walk back in the kitchen with it. On one occasion he came out with three dishes on a cart, delivered two and pushed the cart back in the kitchen with one entree still on it. It was a miserable experience, and only after FIVE different diners walked down stairs to complain did they send a second waiter up to help; not once did the gentleman that speaks English come up to check on us...even though he was aware of the complaints (hmm). A table full of Asians next to us walked out. Well, the food was horrible, most did not eat it. The orange beef and sesame chicken appeared to be leftover from a lunch buffet and refried, this is not an exaggeration. I could go on, but the fact is the management did not care at all about our experience and I want to make sure no one else drives to this restaurant based on the reviews written here only to be disappointed as we were.
Good noodles – I'm asian, and I've experienced many different asian dishes around Georgia and Pung Mie had some good "chang-bong" and "ja jang mayun". Their poultry dishes weren't as good as I thought they'd be, and their rice was way too sticky for Chinese style rice... Also, the price wasn't so fair when it came to the check.
