Good food, good service

Fai's has above average food, but this time it was a little salty and had a lot of brown sauce. All in all, it tasted pretty good. My dining partner was very pleased with his dinner. The egg drop soup with corn was a delicious surprise. Glad it's BYOB. Good service. Reasonable prices. Will return... read more

Back to Fai's last weekend and had a nice time. Singapore style noodles, chicken with black beam sauce, steamed broccoli with brown sauce on the side. The food was fresh, tasteful and arrived nice and hot. Ivy and her husband are sincere, hard working people who do a great job. Waitress Lynn, pleasant, efficient and great service. I recommend Fai's... More

Well, it's time to report again on one of our favorite restaurants - Fai's. The food quality and flavor continues to be outstanding. The service is sincere and attentive. The owners are hard-working and honest. The chef is Hong Kong trained and the sauces - specifically the brown sauce; oh, the brown sauce... - are the best I have had.... More

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
