Okay food, excellent everything else

I've certainly had better Chinese food. That said, our food was good by American Chinese standards, the service was prompt and friendly, and the decor is very nice. Seems to be popular with locals. A good sit-down meal option, as long as you don't expect an authentic Cantonese experience.

My husband and I found this Restaurant by chance when we moved into Ocean View. That was 3 years ago. We wouldn't go anywhere else. The old adage "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" is so very true. When we walked into Fai's the first thing you notice is how CLEAN it is. The smells... More

We went for lunch. The waitress barely spoke English and had to be reminded of our order. She brought the soup with a slight delay. We waited a half hour for our entrees. Mine came out but my husband's did not. We had a doctor appointment to make and had to have his dinner packed to go. A group of... More

The food here is so good! This visit I had the salt and pepper calamari as an entree with brown rice and it was delicious! A little spicy, just the way I like it. My dining partner had the steamed chicken and broccoli with the sauce on the side and white rice. He said it was very tasty. We had... More

Best Chinese food! The dumplings were light and yummy. I highly recommend the dumpling egg drop soup. Flavor was incredible! Will return again.

Soups are first rate Giant shrimp in Grand Marnier Grouper in black bean or ginger Mongolian beef Mango chicken We have never been disappointed When we bring friends they always return with their friends All this...

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 in the future and just... 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
