Excellent authentic Vietnamese cuisine in Brentwood. Located off highway 64 and within walking distance to Best Buy, Sports Authority, Revel Kitchen, Club Fitness and the Metro Link. The menu is ginormous with super large portions, samplers, Pho, rice, noodles, wontons, salads & more. They also have a full bar with television for your entertainment needs. The servers are very knowledgable... More

A surprisingly large selection of Vietnamese noodle dishes and other asian delights. They were willing to accommodate a relatively large group (27) on short notice, with great service. Group consensus was that everything we tried was excellent - you really can't go wrong. Highly recommended

We wanted some better than average Vietnamese food, and found Mai Lee to be a more attractive than average Vietnamese restaurant. The twilight sky (over the mall) added to our enjoyment, but the hard wood seats (typical of many restaurants these days) prompted me to fetch a cushion from the car. If you associated asian food with cheap eats, then... More

My Uncle and I have some delicious Special Fried Rice and Shrimp St. Paul's seasoned and presented nicely. Ranks right up there with any local neighborhood Chop Suey spot around town but without the greasy bag we all love secretly. Give it a try if in the area. Open on Sunday

My coworkers took me here for lunch. Service was OK but rushed I guess because they are busy at lunch time. The food was good. I got chicken with broccoli from the Chinese menu. I didn't expect it would be in a white sauce but it was good. The fried rice was almost not warm which was not enjoyable. They... More

Have gotten take out from here and it is very tasty, if a bit over-salted. Many vegetarian and vegan options. Can ask them to make items without meat or seafood, as well. Soup is quite good. One caution: always check your order before you leave the restaurant. They are often so busy that takeout orders can get mixed up. Be... More

My cousin lives in Brentwood and eats at Mai Lee frequently, so when our huge wacky family was visiting for the Clayton Art Fest he requested a family style dinner for us that was unforgettable. The servers were so attentive and the owner suggested dishes based on our likes and dietary restrictions, very accommodating. I personally was in spring roll... More

I have been to many Vietnamese restaurants. The environment and food is so so, but the price is unreasonable. On top of that, the bill already included 18% tip. They even charged us for refilling the tea pot. We will never go again!

I always think I am going to get something different - every single time. BUT every time, I get the same wonderful, delicious pho that satisfies my soul and makes my day. Sometimes it is good to be boring.

Arrived and efficently taken to my seat ... given menu water and then the server arrives we discuss a few things and off he goes food on time at the right times and was the best I had here sorry took me so long to get to you. A must for Asian food.
