Good

Good pho! Nice and clean ambiance. Friendly service and quick. Pho was a little on the pricey side, I'm used to a huge bowl for $6-7 but it was half the size (still filling) for about $9. Plenty of parking in the garage.

My wife and I have traveled in north and central Vietnam and were looking forward to this restaurant after all the great reviews. We were not that hungry so order the crepes with shrimp and pork and the Pho Ga (chicken noodle soup). The crepe was a bit greasy and lacked flavor and the Pho was acceptable but not great.... More

Great fresh authentic vietnamese food! Spring rolls with shrimp and pork and delicious peanut based sauce. Soup is tasty! Check out the pre-set meals. With 2 adults and 2 kids, we ordered the meal for three for about $52, very good value.

The place was packed at 6pm so you know the food is good. Wanted to try the dungeness crab but was too much $ for one person ($45). Ordered the cube steak instead and loved it.

I remember the first time coming to Mai Lee for my birthday, and ever since I have made it my go-to spot to satisfy any noodle or Asian cravings. This place is probably the best place to get Vietnamese food in St. Louis. The staff is super friendly, and the owner has an amazing story to tell. The establishment is... More

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 it this... 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
