    Post-fire, Mai's looks more upscale and urban, but the food has retained its homey street quality. Get some spring rolls, and share a Banh Xeo and the garlic beef.

    I loved the chicken and asparagus! They say it's a little spicy but it's really not.

    Mai's has been serving bowls of pho & Vietnamese fajitas since 1978. Stay away from the mixed drinks at the flashy bar & stick with classics like bun or com dia with Mai's seasoned Cornish game hen. Read more

    Great Vietnamese Food. Since they reopened the prices seem to be higher, portions to be smaller and the quality isn't quite what it used to be.
