We have been dropping in at May's at the Mandarin Centre for a quick lunch for many years. The food used to be great with tasty rendang, curries, rotis etc. But our most recent visit was quite a shocker. The food quality had dropped below the Terrible mark. The Rendang was hard and more like a vindaloo. The vegetable curry... More

This outlet offers a variety of inexpensive meals, as you'd expect in an Asian food court - but we were turned off by the unfriendly attitude of the lady behind the counter. Maybe she was a relief counterhand or something - but we'll never know because we didn't stick around long enough to find out! There are many other outlets... More

We're regulars to May's (Mandarin Centre, Chatswood) whenever we're in town. Try the authentic chicken rice, or the belecan kway teow - awesome, cheap, wholesome food.

This place not only served me the worst hainan chicken I have ever had, they were also rude and racist. This is the last place in the food court you should order from!

Are you kidding me.......... I mean they operate out of a Food Court @Mandarin Centre...... and the chicken laksa I had was easily the better ones that I've had in the country! Extremely reasonably priced as well. When waiting for my food, loads of other dishes steaming out of the kitchen. I'll be back for sure in no time.

My family's been going to May's for her prawn and veggie laksa for over 2 years and we've never looked back. The laksa is usually a fantastic blend between spicy and tasty - sometimes with too much noodles but that's not particularly a bad thing. There's always plenty of juicy veggies and prawns to compensate for the extra noodles. Add... More

Authentic, home style cooked Malaysian. Worth a visit. Best to order a few things from the menu and share

Consistent quality over many years, even through changes of ownership. A complete meal consisting of moist tender chicken pieces with garnishes on a plate, a bowl of chicken-flavour rice, and soup on the side. A delicious satisfying meal that won't make a big hole in your pocket. Self-service in a food court.

Always moist and tender chicken, flavoursome chicken rice, and hot soup. A complete meal! Sometimes you get a free cup of Chinese tea.
