small but nice

Small & a bit narrow Vietnamese restaurant, but I like to eat out here at lunch. Their papaya salad with chicken (I do not remember the name of this salad) is my favorite, and the pho is also delicious (a bit salty though..) At lunch, it is quite crowded and there are always people waiting out to... read more

Here is served typical vietnamese food. There's not a big choice of dishes, but they are served with different types of meat, fish or tofu, as wished. We had a vietnamese salad, that was tasty, but nothing special, while the calamaris with coconut and curry tasted better. Too expensive for the portions, I would recommend it for a fast lunch,...

A small cosy place that does not seat too many people, but who said that's a bad thing? Great starters and main dishes and their wine mixers are nice. All in all a great place, not too cheap, not too pricey. Service was nice and helpful and food was on the table FAST, without harming the presentation or taste. If... More

Having been to Vietnam not so long ago, I longed for some authentic Vietnamese dishes. Selection is not huge, but salad, rolls and Pho were all delicious. Plus friendly atmosphere. Will return!

The service was sweet and attentive, and dinner fine but not out of the ordinary. The atmosphere is pleasant and attends to a mix of students and people on business.

I've been to this restaurant many times for lunch and dinner with friends. Most of the time I ordered Pho and I must stay the taste is all the time good. The waitresses speak good English (I don't speak German) and are polite. Cocktails are a must try and the rolls are marvelous, they are crispy and not greasy. A... More

I have been to May May a few time since my husband and I moved to Bonn. As other comments, the menu is limited. I wouldn't say it's authentic as there are many dishes that they use substitute ingredients but the food tastes very good and that's the most important for me! The atmosphere is nice and the staff is... More

Tiny but stylish restaurant with good food and attentive service. Selection of meals are limited but all the better for it. Very fresh food, excellent tea. Highly recommended.

I have lived in Bonn for almost two years and not frequented another restaurant as often. May May is a quaint Vietnamese restaurant with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The food is always served with fresh, tasty, authentic ingredients. In addition to their regular menu, there are weekly specials that feature seasonal ingredients. You cannot go wrong with any...

I have been to this restaurant several times. It is one of the few Vietnamese restaurants in the city of Bonn. The menu is limited, but with pictures of all the dishes, making it easy for people to order. Delicious food and freshly made. The service is good. It is a small restaurant and is very busy at lunch times.
