Lovely food. Great friendly service

This was my second meal there in the past 6 months. Once again everybody was happy with their choices. There were 8 of us. We started with two different sharing platters which got the meal off to a great start. I had the salmon - a generous portion cooked to perfection. Others had fillet beef or... read more

Really good meal, service was good, Hong Kong chicken was amazing!!!!!!!! Did not like 5% service charge being added to bill, it is surely the customers choice to leave a gratuity,which I also did

Met my sister in law for dinner in time for the early bird specials. I was surprised at the decent amount of choices of appetizer and main. I started with Tom Yum Soup. One of my favorites. It was hot and spicy, full of veggies and chicken. My sister in law had spring rolls which she said was delicious. I... More

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
