It was pretty but, not crispy, instead a gluggy, mayonnaisey mess. Everyone else ordered from the lunch menu and it was just okay. Lunch includes a massive mountain of salty fried rice. Good store bought egg rolls.

We did not feel like dining out after a day of skiing. We ordered pick up and it was all tasty and good. We had fried rice, kung poa chicken, basil chicken and orange chicken. Would order from here again.

This used to be a decent chinese restauant. Good tasty food served by nice waiters. Was just there and boy has this place gone downhill. The service is terrible and the food is just average. 1. It was hard to get water. 2. The waiter had such a thick chinese accent that we couldn't communicate. 3. They used to serve... More

Always great, fresh flavors. Excellent fried rice and a generous portion. The fried prawns for happy hour are huge, very light and crunchy. If you want to share the the Full moin with 7 stars entree is amazing and plenty to eat.

Had a chance to have lunch at the May Palace. Found the food to be just average. I have eaten here several times previously. I was certainly disappointed this time.

Absolutely horrible! Everything on the menu sucks! Do not eat here ever! Way over priced crap! Anybody that says this place is good has no tastebuds.

We had a really good meal here. Was it the best ever? No. That would probably be reserved for Chinatown New York but, it was very good. We were a little skeptical because of one or two reviews that called it very ordinary and didn't seem to care for this place but, we had the eggplant with garlic, which was... More

May Palace is in a strip mall. The decor is exactly like any other Chinese food place in a strip mall. The food was decent. I would eat here again.

This restaurant appears to cater to locals much more than to tourists -- which is a good thing. Service is "down home" and appropriately attentive. My wife had the moo goo gai pan, which was a very large portion of rice and vegetables with chicken. It was flavorful. The vegetables tended to be mostly "American" without more traditional "Chinese" vegetables.... More

This place has great food - Thai and Chinese, and not greasy and overdone. It's good quality, vegetables are fresh and the food is seasoned well. Staff are very friendly. Small, full bar usually with friendly locals. Nice place.
