We drive all the way from Rosenberg to downtown Houston once a week to eat here. I have NEVER had a bad meal here. Best won ton soup I have ever eaten, best Asian made Cornish hen I have ever eaten. I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant.

I've been a customer of Mai's for the last 15 years. I have been pleased with their food and their service all along. Mai herself is present every day. Years ago she used to be the cashier....but, for the last two years, she's been managing the kitchen and making sure everything is up to par... This after a big fire... More

Horrible Service. I went on a 1st date & tried to pay the bill and leave a nice tip. However, I whispered to the waiter to type in my CC#; my magnetic strip will not work. I'm with a group of close friends, an attractive woman, and her best guy friend. He said "You're card is declined, it won't work."... More

My first experience of Vietnamese food. My husband eats here with his friends a lot and so he took me there for dinner last week as we had only a short time to eat. The food came out very quickly, was well cooked and hot. I ordered the crispy noodles with meat, fish and veg. The plate was heaped with... More

Went to Mia's for lunch. I haven't been in awhile. To be frank it was terrible and ridiculously expensive. First we ordered an appetizer...the Cha Gio (fried spring rolls). I'm not a fan of fried food to begin with but my buddy wanted them. The came out piping hot with plenty of lettuce to wrap them in. The only thing... More

It has been at least a year since I have eaten here. I remember the food being simple but of good quality. On this occassion the grilled beef and chicken was flavorful but very dry. Not the reliable dining experience I recall.

Given all the hype & positive reviews, my family decided to try Mai's, BUT we did not end up staying because it was abundantly clear that the staff did not need or want our business! We were ignored upon arrival by several of the staff and stood at the door for a few minutes while servers walked by but did... More
