Fresh food, quick service and reasonable prices. But very disappointed to find 5% services charge on bill, which was not a tip as the request for a gratuity was also there in payment process!! Felt cheated as waiter as it wasn't made clear at beginning, consequently everything on menu is the price plus 5%!!!! Won't be back on principal.

Nice enough meal. Ordered Thai Chicken which came with lots of vegetables and rice. Maybe too much rice. Mongolian beef and noodles, felt this was far too salty. Also had stir fry greens with soy and oyster sauce. This was delicious. Could have had a nice large bowl of the green vegetables. Ordered a drink which was a Virgin Mojito.... More

One of the top places to eat. Food is always cooked to the highest standards. If you need it cooked a certain way, they have no problem with it. Which to me shows the customer service of the place. The waitresses are always checking if your happy and ok with everything or need anything..Each time i have gone to Mao,... More

I have been coming here for years, but after three disappointing visits, I will now give it a miss for a while. Gone is the theatre of a crowded kitchen creating aromas and noise from sizzling woks serving piping hot fresh food. Several of our dishes were served cold, and my chicken was dry and hard as if reheated and... More

Came here for Mother's Day lunch. Food and staff were lovely as usual but place was bit dirty and loos were bordering on yuk. The one I used had bad leak and loo roll on the floor and the flush was pretty bad.
