We went there for dinner and they seemed to do pretty good business even for a weekday. We ordered 4 dishes and the bill was close to $50. Except for the chicken, the rest of them were pretty bland and needed some seasoning. All of the dishes came out pretty quick. Hot tea was served in an old stainless tea... More

This restaurant is a large warehouse style dining hall which you could find in almost any country in the world. The food I had was edible which is about the best I can say frankly. Service is fast and efficient to the point of being blunt. If you want to fuel up and be on your way then Mayflower night... More

Reservations for a surprise birthday luncheon was handled very efficiently. Menu and food were wonderful; except for one dish. The deep fried fish should've been accompanied by a sweet sour sauce on the side. The menu description said so, but when we asked the staff about it, no one seemed to know. Service was very good, especially since it was... More

Price is reasonable. Food is very greasy, quality of food is questionable, tea is not hot, decor needs fresh up and kept clean & tidy. The carpet looks tired and the glass front door is full of hand/finger prints....Expected more from this chain. Asked for a particular dessert and the 'captain's 'response was: of course we do not have it... More

If you enjoy very authentic Taiwan style cooking, then this is your place. If you have more Western tastes and don't appreciate meat you can't identify that tastes like sponges soaked in beef flavor and vegetable parts you normally throw away in this country, then don't go. Service was good.

Diem sum and dinner are always tasty, using fresh ingredients. Very crowded for diem sum, either come early or have a later lunch. Dinner on weekends can be busy, sometimes a wedding banquet or small number of reservations can book up the entire place, so call ahead if there's any availability.
