“Pricey for the quality and quantity of the food”
Review of May Wah Restaurant & Tavern - CLOSED

May Wah Restaurant & Tavern

Reviewed September 6, 2013

Passing through this restaurant while on a bicycle trip to Fort Erie at noon time on a Sunday. We decided to try it out, ordering some fried rice and noodle. Both were a disappointment. The portions were really small and tasteless. It's rather pricey on the quality and quantity basis. Since we weren't picky eaters, we were puzzled by the other reviews here. We are definitely not going to visit this restaurant again. We would rather go to McDonalds.

The restaurant is right beside the Niagara River, surrounded by a few other Chinese food restaurants. We chose this one because reviewers said it was reasonably priced. We were seated at a window table that offered a virtually unobstructed view of the river. Our server was excellent and helped make our visit really enjoyable. There was no buffet.

We really enjoyed the sweet and sour chicken and the chicken fried rice. All of the food we had was good, but those two items stood out.

The decor was typical as to what one would expect in a Chinese restaurant. The meal cost us about $55.00 and fed me, the wife and our two young boys. Our server boxed the leftovers for us and there was enough for lunch the next day. Our boys were each given a box of Smarties before we left.

Overall it was a nice experience and good food. It's not as cheap as most buffets.

We've been coming to May Wah for over 20 years and I can honestly say that the food and service are as good as ever. The family is still here and their food is some of the best we've ever had; no one can make sweet and sour chicken like they can! The food comes out steaming hot and the vegetables are always colorful and crisp. Do yourself a favor and try one of the combination plates; they can't be beat! Enjoy the fantastic view and eat a delicious meal at a reasonable price.

Can't go wrong here folks. This is the best Chinese you'll get in the area. Always fresh, always creative. Try the Phoenix nest or the Jah Doo Chicken. Prices are great, service is excellent.
