Riverfront Times' Description

The area's first Vietnamese restaurant has relocated to a bigger, better space, but its charm remains. The menu is quite long and has the rare quality of appealing to novices and aficionados alike. For example, you can order spring rolls (goi cuon) or you can roll your own. House specialties include excellent roast duck and a beguiling lamb dish with lemongrass and chiles, troo xao xa ot. Mai Lee's pho, the traditional beef noodle soup, is capable of curing a cold, a hangover or existential ennui. Mai Lee originally opened as a Chinese restaurant; a selection of Chinese dishes remains available.
