“Great food!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

When in St Louis to see family, we usually find a way to fit in a meal to Mai Lee.
Been there 15 plus times over the past 3 years and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food, ingredients or their generous portion sizes.
A huge variety to choose from for all Vietnamese favorites and some Chinese dishes for good measure.
Service generally is average to above average, and never rude. I go there to eat good food and spend time with family, never had issues with service as some folks have mentioned.
A St Louis favorite for my and the family.

“Excellent food, but they really don't need you”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

My family loves this place. The food never disappoints and the service is consistently prompt and courteous. However, they close at 9 PM on weeknights and we have been rudely turned away at 8:45 PM when they were packed inside. They really could not care less about two more tables (there was another couple who were turned away with us) or even politely telling us that they could not accommodate us.

Don't bother coming here after 8:30 PM.

“Wed. night 6/5 full house”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

There were 10 in our party, all ordering different dishes. Our reservation was honored and we were seated at 7:15 with no wait, our waiter Kevin provided great service all thru the meal. The food was all well prepaired & tastey. With all the seats in the restaurant taken there had to be a well run kitchen to serve everyone as well as they did.

“This place never fails”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I don't know how Mai Lee does it with its extensive menu but they never fail. We had dinner there on a week day evening with friends and ordered a number of their traditional Vietnamese dishes to share - some of which I had never eaten before. All were wonderful. The server was very helpful. Its no wonder we keep going back. Mai Lee never fails.

“Great Family Soup Pot”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went here on a Sunday night. Our waiter was patient as we looked over the extensive menu. We ended up ordering the chicken spring tools which were okay. Our entrees were the pad Thai which was very good and nicely spiced. The highlight of our meal was the soup dish we ordered which. Contained lemongrass, fried tofu and vegetables. The flavors were wonderful and we enjoyed it so much!
