Just visiting Evansville after moving 6 years ago. Visited the Ma family as soon as we hit town, and was not disappointed! Love the quiet booths, even though the place was packed on a Friday night. Variety, freshness, well paced service, and ALWAYS a check-in...at our table by the proprietor. You never need to fear food that was prepared last week and continually recycled at this restaurant! One of my favorite restaurants anywhere! We’ll be back!More

While driving to Memphis, we stopped here. We were surprised at the quality and taste in a somewhat obscure location. Interior design was very nice, not the corny Asian restaurant style. We have been in Asian restaurants all over the world, and its nice to...find a good one in Evansville.More

Without a doubt the best authentic Chinese restaurant in the Tri-State. The food is always cooked to perfection, and is obviously NOT mass produced. If you want a buffet this is not the place for you. Generous portions, excellent service, and wonderful food. Bonus: my...husband is celiac/gluten intolerant and we have eaten here >20 times and he has never gotten sick. Highly recommend you support this locally owned business.More

This was a nice dining experience. We got Spring Roll appetizer. My wife got General Tso chicken. It is listed as spicy, but they prepared hers with very little hot spices, per her request. I had the combination Fried Rice. Everything was well prepared and...beautifully served. The place is off the beaten path, but well worth the SHORT drive to find it.More

I lived in Southern California for 30 years. I was spoiled by the abundance of good Chinese restaurants. After my wife and I moved on to live in several states, we never found another decent Chinese restaurant until we found the Mai T 888. The...Mai T is every bit as good as the Chinese restaurants in So Cal and better than many of them. The food is great, and the portions are generous. The prices are reasonable. The service is prompt and friendly. The decor is nice. The booths are comfortable. I have nothing negative to say about it.More

We dine her regularly and have never been disappointed. The service is very good, the restaurant and restrooms are very clean and the food is fresh and delicious. You want to lick the plate from the house salad dressing, the soup is very simple yet...tasty and the meats are lean but tasty. Service is very professional and the owner most times will stop by to see how everything is with your meal. The special fried rice is amazing and a must have. $4 wines are all very good plus they have a full bar. I highly recommend this place for anyone.More

First off, this is amazing food. Probably best in the area. However, we ordered online. My wife ordered and I picked up. What I didn't know is that even though you don't pay online, they ask you to include a tip. Which my wife did...of 20%. When I went to pickup, the receipt didn't show my wife had tipped at all! So I tipped 20% on top of her 20%. Our bill, which should have been $65 before tip, actually showed $80 and of course I tipped again putting the total over $100. Which I thought was very high, but I'd never been here before. I wouldn't have even knows but in the parking lot, the same situation unfolded. I heard a man complaining about price to his wife and she said you didn't tip again did you? He said there was not a tip on the bill but they determined they tipped twice. I went back in and they marked out the tip that I wrote in and said they would not charge me for it. There was no apology or explanation why the tip doesn't show up on your receipt or why they have a spot for you to tip after you have already tipped. We eat out a lot and we've never experienced this anywhere. I think it's a shady practice and I'm sure it's made them a bit of extra money. So, 1 star for the shady practice and 5 for the food. Go for the food but watch the bill.More
