I used to go to Mai's regularly when I lived in Houston. Every time I visit Houston, I have to stop and get Mai fix on. I love everything on their menu, the service is always friendly, and their Vietnamese Eggrolls are to die for. Great place after a night of bar hopping. Be safe and call an Uber!!

Love me some pho and some Vietnamese food. Anything I get, I always ask for extra spicy. They do their best, but I always need to add more. Great place and food. Service is great as well.

We have always enjoyed the food at Mai's. Me and my family always looks forward to enjoying some of their dishes that we might be craving for. However, I would definitely give this restaurant a 5 if the service was up the the same standards as their kitchen. Recently when we visited, there was nobody to greet at the front... More

I eat here so often that I've familiarized myself with some of the waiters and even the manager that's regularly there on the evenings. Their pork spring rolls are delish and I oddly always order one thing on their menu because I just can't seem to get away from it - Bo Luc Lac. The meat is so juicy! Seriously,... More

I ordered beef Pho and spring roll during lunch time. Like most of the Pho restaurant, the service is fast. The quality, however, when comparing food in China town area is average.

The service was snappy and disgracious, the person who took our orders was just too abrupt.We had gone there after reading about its history of excellence in food and hospitality,and on similar recommendations but it was a complete mistake, all bogus. The food would have tasted better if it was served well with gratitude and a smile.
