We have been to the Me Wah in Hobart & loved it. When we heard there was one in Launceston we knew we had to go. It was CNY & what better way to celebrate! Exceptional service & high standard Chinese food. You should not miss this spot!

We love this restaurant. Been to their other place in Hobart and this location did not disappoint. In a city that lacks everything, this place is the only bright spot. Keep up the great service and amazing food. Cheers. Sunsets.

This used to be our favourite restaurant many years back and having not been for about 10 years decided to go again and it did not disappoint. Service was still amazing, well priced and delicious food and lovely wine and beer selection. Temperature inside was perfect as it was a warm 30 degree day in Launceston! We will not leave... More

Their wine list was outstanding and the menu offered many choices, clearly detailed and written with a sense of humbleness. The food was above expectations, innovative and fresh. We really enjoyed our time at Me Wah and... More

This resaurant has won many accolades, but you do not need me to tell you that. Their entrees are outstanding. Duck Sang Choi Bow, various dumplings (steamed, of course!, the crab is particularly good in my view). Crispy skin pancake (Peking duck), Of the mains the roast duck is to die for, and the lobster with ginger and shallots is... More

We were staying in the CBD and having walked several KMs during the day when told the best Chinese restaurant was about a 25 min walk we nearly changed our minds! Luckily we didn't as upon arrival at Me Wah's the aroma and atmosphere made it instantly worth the walk. We then sat down to the best Chinese food that... More

Mei Wah is said to be one of the best Chinese restaurant in Tasmania and the one in Launceston is its original one. That's why I chose to pay a visit there with high expectation. Its location is not central, right opposite to the Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery. The exterior is quite a traditional China look one and... More
