Busy restaurant with good food and slow service

I was there with a few people and we ordered several things to share. The appetizers that we had we all great: spring rolls, summer rolls, shrimp rolls. The only thing I was disappointed in was the avocado shake, it was very icy and chunky. I plan on going back to have the pho since I didn't get... read more

Went for first time and I was thoroughly impressed. The food and service were great. Split a special and an off the menu item. Hard to pick which was better. Large portions so come hungry. A lot more to go back and try.

Having heard nothing but good things about Mai Lee, we were really looking forward to dinner. Yes it's in an odd little spot but the restaurant was very clean and the windows brought in tons off daylight in the early evening. The menu is absolutely huge and so we just asked the waiter for recommendations. The top two items are... More

Still a very popular restaurant. We arrived around 7pm on Wednesday night and waited over 30 minutes for a table to open. Tried dungeness crab and mixed seafood over charred rice. The latter was delicious flavor. The charred rice made for a crunchy textural variety. Overall flavor was very good. Only complaint about this dish was the chewiness of the... More

I was soo excited to go here finally, and while it was good I am a bit disappointed. I was envisioning the depth of flavor and pricing I have enjoyed in San Francisco and I this just didn't quite meet the mark. I thought the prices were good. $4 for buhn mi, $4 for steamed pork boa. I thought the... More

Mai Lee is tops when it comes to Vietnamese food and Asian fusion with a Vietnamese influence. The service is very good and the prices quite moderate. No matter what you order from their vast menu, you will never be disappointed.

Food is good, not the next I've had but good. Location is s little awkward and I think they are a little over priced for the cuisine.

Everything on the menu is seasoned to perfection! I've eaten here at least 20 times. Prices are good for what you get. My favorite is Fire Pot Soup #197 CANH CHUA TOM. A traditional lemongrass, tamarind base soup w/vegetables & shrimp. One of the very few places in St. Louis you can get a tamarind base soup expertly prepared! Any... More

you won't find better Vietnamese food anywhere stl. I highly recommend the Bo Luc Lac (#89). Order some hot tea and pick one of their quality appetizers. I visit this restaurant frequently. It is a bit difficult to find. It's located directly behind the Best Buy.

I can't really build upon the other positive reviews, but if you were a fan of pho, you will find that this has some of the best around. It is a great carry out option, and if it's not busy it's great to dine in as well. It really stacks up on the weekends, so go early or late.
