“Fresh, tasty Chinese and Japanese fare in pleasant casual atmosphere”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Started with traditional Chinese pu-pu platter-very good. Soft shell crab appetizer was delicious. Several different Japanese rolls shared, and all were we'll made and good. One person had traditional noodles and broth with beef-very good. Pork lo mien good. Great place for food, friendly low key atmosphere. Not expensive.

“OK Food - Horrible Service - Do yourself a favor and skip this place!”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

We've been coming to Mai Place for a few years and it used to be quite good. Recently I have been hearing from all the local folks that it's really gone down hill big time. Sure enough we got to be victims and can confirm that the place is just not the same anymore. My friend who lives in Sharon, had decided to have a birthday party for 20 people there on a Saturday night (August 27, 2011). It had been raining like crazy that evening and the place was practically empty. Our group came in and we placed a large order of sushi and some Chinese food. There were 5 completely clueless waiters working that night. It seemed as though they were just random people who have never served anyone in their lives. They were so confused and inefficient that it's hard to imagine that you could get worse service. It took us 2 1/2 hrs to get our food! Just insane. My friend was so upset that she went to speak with the manager who was not much help. My friend has been coming there for years and knows the owner personally but ever since he opened a second location he is never there and the service has really suffered for it. After we had tons of sushi brought out - all at once (instead of trying to bring us food gradually so we didn't have to sit hungry for 2 1/2 hrs) it was followed by soups and Chinese food. By then we didn't even want it. The food was OK, but the terrible service really killed the experience. On top of that, they added an automatic 18% gratuity which was just rediculous. We will never go back.
