This is the go-to spot for Vietnamese food in St. Louis. A long-time favorite, Mai Lee delivers consistently good food and excellent service. If you're unsure about what to order, your server will provide chapter and verse on putting together a wonderful meal with a great variety of dishes to sample. We are actually headed to Vietnam and on our... More

We went this past Saturday night for dinner and it was packed. The wait was quoted as 30-40 minutes. It took more than an hour to get a table. They work hard and we cannot complain about how they try and turn the tables - but when they are packed it is not comfortable unless you can stand outside. This... More

This is you place. Ever since they were a teensy carry out place in the 80s, we've loved Mai Lee. Every time we go, I swear I have a new favorite. Enormous menu! Something for everyone.

This place is always buzzing, but the wait is not long because of the efficiency of the staff. The wait is worth every minute! The soups are their reputation, but the other dishes are just as delectable! The waiter was very friendly and professional, and knew just when to serve us.

I have ordered from here many, many, many times and I have always enjoyed the food tremendously. I have tried a variety of the items and they have all been great and there are a lot of items to choose from. Very fresh and always dependable.

Our party of 3 arrived at 5 and the water and server only seconds later. It may have helped that one of our party is a long time friend of the family, but looking around, probably not. The service for every customer was stellar. The odors coming from the kitchen were heavenly, the food beautifully prepared, arriving at the perfect... More

Was good although I am not an expert in Asian cuisine. I've had better Pho, just seemed a bit bland but over whelming flavor of the Thai basil. We also had the shrimp (had to peel ourselves) and noodles which were really delicious! The spring roll was good but I was expecting it to be fried and it was rice... More
