My family loves Asian food. This restaurant has good food for the best prices on Main Street. We were able to sit right away during Spring Break and the service was excellent. I was introduced to a mix of Hot and Sour soup mixed with Egg Drop and it was delicious. The plates are generous, so one plate was shared.... More

Ling, the owner, was very funny and friendly. She made our dinner so much more pleasant. Never had Chinese food actually spicier than Korean food. Spicy level between 1-5, we chose 4 and it was very spicy. She was nice enough to remake it for us to reduce to the spice level. Food was very flavorful and delicious! It was... More

I love the food at Mays palace I've been here a couple of times. I love the egg drop soup and a variety of other dishes they serve. However this last time I went with my family, we were treated poorly by the waiters. From the beginning when we entered the restaurant we were greeted with negative attitude by the... More

This is one of our local favorites! We love their lunch specials, many choices for $6.95 includes, choice of entree, choice of soup, egg roll, wonton, and choice of rice. We have been coming here for years, great place, great owners, great service, you can't go wrong!

My husband and I wanted a casual take-out dinner for the last evening our family was in town, and noticed the Trip Advisor sticker on the window of May Palace. Since we had already eaten a lot of pasta, we thought Chinese would be a nice change of pace. We were impressed with the extensive menu and ordered a sampling... More

First time coming to eat here and I honestly just didn't like it at all. The place itself is pretty nice and all. The service is good too, it's just the food. To me it didn't taste right I don't like it and it was just not the best. It tasted like it had been from days before and not... More

Tried this place out since it was on my way home from work and seemed cheaper than China Cafe. The BBQ pork fried rice was decent. I've had better but it was tasty. The wonton soup was inedible! Really, the worst wonton soup I've ever had. The wontons were mush and I think just noodles, no meat in them. The... More

Get tired of burgers and sandwiches so we decided on Chinese for lunch. I believe it was only 6.95 for an entree, choice of rice, choice of two soups, a wonton and an egg roll. My moo goo was great as was my husbands almond chicken. We will definitely return.
