what a relief

plotted out trip to May Wah based on brief lunchtime visit during late summer (see "to a tea), fearful with wife that it might not measure up to earlier visit... wrong, wrong, wrong... this was not only a scrumptious meal, with a gregarious, cheery waiter who twitted the cheap gourmet for making... read more

absolutely everything worked out in this stop after the shaw festival in Niagara on the lake, where most food venues are far too costly... terrific little dumplings, lemon chicken (best anywhere in a long time), sesame chicken and extraordinary fried rice with just touch of garlic... we asked for several special sauces and were rewarded with kindness... a great place

Nothing special. But this is probably one of the best Chinese style restaurants in the Niagara area. If you are looking for authentic this is not it, but if you are looking for a more western-style Chinese restaurant then look no further. Good food, good service!

boy, hadn't been here for decades, what a delight, and on a fall afternoon watching the Niagara river flow by against a background of foliage... terrific egg foo young and a nice combo platter including a tremendous order of fried rice which had to raise the health quotient... however, the hit of the day was the tea, a delicious brew,...

However, in this case, it was amazing. They had a nice wine list to start with. And their appetizers were fabulous. We asked early on that they not use MSG in preparing the food as one of our party had severe reactions to it, and they obliged. I'm not a big fan of Chinese food ordinarily, but every dish ordered...

Thank you for accommodating our last minute reservation. We had a great view of the Niagara River. The staff were friendly and ready to serve. The kitchen made two to order dishes, chicken fingers from scratch for our 8 year old cousin and vegan stir fry for our vegan son. The meal was fresh, hot and tasty. The decor made... More

I love their Chinese food here! The spicy pork and spicy beef have such great flavors. And the wonton soup is like none other, literally I have searched every Chinese restaurant for wonton soup like this and you can't find it anywhere. The portions are big and reasonably priced. Plus Steve, the waiter, knows us by name and has our... More

My husband & I stumbled in by accident. We were asking around for a good Chinese restaurant in Fort Erie. Everyone said to try Happy Jacks which is next door. For some reason we were more drawn to May Wah. It is located with a nice view of the Peace bridge and the Niagara river. Décor is tasteful yet average... More

I have been going to May Wah for Chinese food since it opened in 1979. I have watched both the staff and myself age over these 35 years but the quality and scrumptious taste of the food has maintained over the decades. The combination plates are fantastic for the lone diner and the set meals for couples and groups are... More

May Wah is one of two Chinese restaurants on this street that has a fabulous view of the river from the dining room. The food was OK but really rather commonplace. The plates that we ordered were priced properly. The waiter, who has worked there quite some time, is engaging and the service is good and appropriate for a restaurant... More
