The restaurant was clean, the service mediocre, and the food average. Better choices in the area are sweet ginger or ying dynasty.

Great tasting food and generous portions makes for a great deal. Service is excellent with the place being clean and quaint. You can eat in or take out but the portions still remain the same. If you eat in you probably. Will be taking home a doggie bag.

Been here several times. The food is always good. The service is always timely. Nothing bad about this restaurant at all. If you ever find yourself in Fairhaven, and you have a hankering for Chinese food, you must try this place!

I have liked Wah May for years, but I have just had my second terrible meal there. I had a lousy meal a month or so ago, but I thought I would try again. Well, if anything, it was worse. I got pork lo mein, no pork, dry noodles and rubbery mushrooms. That's it. The prices are not cheap and... More

I visit this restaurant often. It is my go to place for Chinese food no matter what you get it's always good. If you're in the mood for Chinese or American food this is the place to go reasonable prices and great portions.

Neighborhood joint, reasonable prices and good portion sizes. Decor is a bit dated - but that doesn't bother us. We'll be back.

Wah Mays has had a lot of competition in the last few years with a multitude of Chinese and oriental restaurants opening up in Fairhaven. HOWEVER- this place remains at the top of the list after being in business for over fifty years. They do a very large take-out, which is what I usually get, but the dining room is... More

Good food, good sized portions and can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. Another plus, they do a wide variety of offerings well. Other local Chinese restaurants may do individual items slightly better but not the complete array of Chinese food. If dining in is your goal you might find others places better, but if it's to-go then... More
