Standard Chinese menu. Good place to eat in or takeaway. No home delivery is annoying. Not cheap but always good.

Its a good place for a family dinner. Ivy is always very welcoming and the kids just love her. In all the times that we have eaten there over the 10+ years we have never had a bad meal.

The food is excellent but the service is very unfriendly and unwelcoming. Not a nice atmosphere. When I arrived I had to say hi to get the person at the front counters attention. I stood right in front of him and was ignored. Such a shame because the food accompanied by decent service would make this restaurant very appealing.

We avoid restaurants on N Y E like the plague. Overpriced and under delivers. Normally. But friends told us it won't happen here. And it didn't. Normal prices was a good start. Really tasty food served by very friendly and helpful staff. No wonder this restaurant is a Rose Bay veteran. Recommended

An excellent but pricey meal for the family at Mai Kwai - superb food - my Chicken Laksa was amazing and the steamed fish with ginger and shallots also! The staff were both friendly and attentive.

Tucked away in Rosebay, is May Kwai, probably better as a take away , then a sit down, Prawn toast lamb and pancakes and fried rice all very good, surprised that there was no duck pancakes. Good choice of Chinese food! Will return.

We get take away meals from May Kwai regularly. The "Special Fried Rice" is particularly good and has prawns, BBQ pork, egg, shallots etc.

Great for a quick dinner - I always enjoy their beef sang chow bow. The chicken sang Choy bow is equally good! Efficient service.
