With the extensive menu and the knowledgeable staff recommendations, you can enjoy the best of Vietnamese and Chinese....including Pho. Try the beef with tomatoes and onions pared with the sautéed sea spinach as an accompaniment. Love love the shrimp toast appetizer. The charred rice dish with seafood is robust with flavor.

We had heard this was the best, and so we wanted to try it out to see. One thing I forgot was that, being known as the best tends to draw a crowd, and we didn't call for reservations. We also had a large party (10), and so ended up waiting about 45 minutes for a table. There is shopping... More

I only get to Mai Lee about once a month. Mores the pity because the menu is extensive and everything is terrific. Yes, it gets busy. Mai Lee has been in St Louis for about 30 years and has a huge following. The food is always good and you'll certainly find something you want on the menu. The problem is... More

This is such a popular restaurant that they seem to be resting on their laurels. Spring rolls have shrimp, a piece of cilantro, and lettuce - lots and lots of lettuce. My shrimp dumpling entree had very few shrimp (nicely sized, but few in number), thicker dough than in other excellent area Vietnamese restaurants, a little cucumber, cilantro that you... More

We went here for dinner after seeing a review in sauce magazine. I had the pho and my husband had the five spice pork. Everything was so fresh and delicious. Plus there are about 200 choices to pick on the menu. We will be back to try them all.

Ever since In Soo closed, we have been at a lose for good Chinese food. We decided to try Mai Lee, understanding that they serve mainly Vietnamese food predominately. My wife ordered Pho with beef and it was outstanding. My son ordered shrimp fried rice and that was also very good. I had the Ga Xao Lan, which was chicken,... More

Excellent blend of both Vietnamese and Chinese-style restaurant. We tried the Duck off the Vietnamese selections (delicious, mild and the sauce divine! ) as well as some classics off of the Chinese-side of the menu. Sure to please everyone in the group. Service was excellent. Glad we stopped by. Very creative and not at all typical! Lovely outdoor seating area.... More

As always the spring rolls were divine. I branched out from my normal and ordered the more expensive pho with 4 kinds of beef instead of the one or two that I normally get. Big mistake. The two extra kinds of beef were tripe and tendon mixed in. The soup still tasted great but I picked out all the tripe... More

Went here with my sister yesterday for lunch. Even though the place was packed we only waited 15 minutes for our table. Plus our server was quick to take our order and the food came out in about ten minutes. We had the veggie cold spring rolls (not to be missed!) and veggie pad Thai and lo mein. The food... More
