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.

Had eaten here before and found it good. Not this time. Had the Christmas menu and the main was the Malaysian chicken which was just not good. V bland. Will not rush back

My last visit to this restaurant was quite a surprise. I had the Hati Ayam and it was scrumptious and my sister had the yellow veg curry which was equally as good. They also had Lassi Smoothies and Margaritas. Everything we ordered was really really tasty. The venue itself is fine. The location excellent. It's right on the seafront. With... More

Stopped by for late light lunch around 3pm. Ordered starters and cocktails from a waiter who actually sighed when we didn't order a main course despite restaurant bring empty. Food really poor, service indifferent. Won't be returning.
