We have had the pleasure of enjoying numerous meals with friends at Fai's Chinese Restaurant. Large portions, excellent selections, very good service (Lynn does a great job as does Ivy, the owner). We have enjoyed whole roasted duck, clams & mussels in black bean sauce, sautéed asparagus, broccoli, green beans and pea pods in a garlic sauce and many other... More

Went there on Saturday night and every table was full. They had 1 waitress on! Everyone in the place was complaining. Food is good, but would not go back just because of the rude staff and only having 1 waitress on a Saturday night! Also very expensive for little portions.

I went back to my favorite all time restaurant to celebrate my friend's birthday at the end of August. As usual, our hostess Ivy was most gracious and accommodating. Our vegetable platter of eggplant, asparagus and broccoli in black pepper sauce was outstanding; the chef special of shrimp mariner was something you dream about afterward. It was just unbelievably delicious.... More

We have always enjoyed the food at Fai's whether we ate there and got take-out. But the past Sunday noon was anew high. My wife and I discovered the Lite Menu; she ordered the shrimp with vegetables and I the scallops. They arrived in steaming baskets perfectly done! Vegetables just right and the size and number of shrimp and scallops... More

The food here is outstanding and you won't find better at the shore. BUT, if you're looking for one of those all you can eat for 5 bucks places, keep going. That slop is all over the place. If you like GOURMET food and owners who treat you like family, give Fails a try. We come to our shore house... More

We order take out from Fai's through out the summer when we are at our vacation home. They never disappoint. Our favorites are the grouper with black pepper sauce, a chef specialty, Singapore rice noodles and moo shu shrimp. But anything we ever had was always delicious!

Always a pleasant atmosphere, be sure and order anything General Tso's extra crispy. When you first walk in there is a huge tank full of exotic fish. They were great when they were in Sea Isle, and they're great off shore.

We recently took my family to Fai's for dinner on a very rainy night. What a mistake. The food was mediocre at best and the service was really awful. My first and last visit to this restaurant.
