Wah May is my favorite place to go when I want great Chinese food. I have been going to this restaurant since it opened many years ago and have never been disappointed in the quality and quantity of food. They have a great blue plate special menu which offers so many great choices at very reasonable prices.

Bought a Restaurant.com certificate and decided to use it today. Previous reviews suggested that food was average at best. We disagree! There were five in our party and all left full and satisfied and of course, with a doggie bag. The combination plates were plentiful and reasonably priced. The food was delicious....what tasty sauces. We will definitely return. Service was... More

Just love the fast service and the awesome Chinese food. On a recent visit, we had fried wontons, crab rangoons, and chicken chow mein. The chicken chow mein was the best! And of course the rangoons are always exceptional!

The food is 1950s Chinese American--not bad, but not great. It's a neighborhood institution, and many people swear by it. I much prefer A Kitchen or Sweet Ginger.

Wah May's is a local institution and has been around for decades. There are better alternatives in town now. The food is average at best, and rather pricey. We used to order here because it was routine for us, but have since found Golden Chopsticks on Rte 6 to offer more variety, faster take-out service, and better food.

I have been going to Wah Mays since I was a child. In my opinion it is the best Chinese food around. I highly recommend their chow mein, fried rice, steak skewers, fried win tons and just about everything else on the menu.

The restaurant was clean, the service mediocre, and the food average. Better choices in the area are sweet ginger or ying dynasty.

Great tasting food and generous portions makes for a great deal. Service is excellent with the place being clean and quaint. You can eat in or take out but the portions still remain the same. If you eat in you probably. Will be taking home a doggie bag.
