About Mai Lee

After escaping a war torn Vietnam in 1978 with her husband and young son, founder Lee Tran became a waitress at several Chinese restaurants around St. Louis to help make ends meet.

Pursuing the American dream led her to opening Mai Lee Restaurant in 1985 with a full Chinese menu. To honor her heritage, she slowly added Vietnamese dishes to the menu of the then tiny six table restaurant. Customers welcomed the additions enthusiastically and now Mai Lee is regarded as the very first Vietnamese restaurant in St. Louis.
