Wonderful food

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... read more

A great place, fabulous and friendly service - just the right ambiance for both romance or family dining....oh; a huge menu too! I had grouper; a... More

The quality of the food is outstanding & the staff is extremely pleasant. My favorite is the House Fried Rice with General Tso's Chicken.

Fai's is AWSOME... I THINK SOME OF THE REVIEWS ARE EITHER MADE UP BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE OR ARE JUST MISERABLE PEOPLE WHO ENJOY WRITING NEGATIVE REVIEWS. We have had a home at the Jersey Shore to over 30 years and have dined at many, many restaurants from Atlantic City to Cape May. There are many good... 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

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

I wish Fai would move to Lancaster county. We would probably eat there 5 or 6times a week. Food is outstanding and we always make it our first stop sometimes even before we get to our shore house. A little more money but the food is fresh, delicate and delicious. Keep in mind that this is gourmet food and not... More
