Firstly found the service incredibly intrusive and very annoying !!!!!!!!!! The decor was straight out of a sixties suburban Chinese restaurant no ambience at all . Instead of the usual bucket of steamed rice to serve yourself it arrived at our table as ONE tiny scoop of rice EACH in a our individual bowl and no more. The mains are... More

Great food and service. Highly recommend this restaurant. Centrally located to our hotel, which was also fabulous. Loved our trip to Launceston.

We were very pleased to be able to be seated at short notice. The service was second to none and the food s true chinese delight. We had a light meal but others had a banquet which looked and smelt amazing. The platters were served sizzling. Our meal was beautiful and our only regret was that we had not been... More

My wife and I and other family members have dined here several times and always found it a very enjoyable experience. The food is authentically Chinese (Cantonese I think), delicious, and included dishes I hadn't experienced previously. Beautifully served and the attention from the Waiter was exemplary. While not the cheapest Chinese Restaurant in town, it must certainly rank as... More

We had no expectations when we arrived at 5.30pm on a Friday night without a booking, other than perhaps being turned away. Tip, do make a booking for Friday and Saturday nights, as this place gets packed, backup-you can always opt for takeaway. Whilst waiting for our entree, we watched numerous people being turned away, so this is a definite... More

It is our second visit at this restaurant. We were hoping for a better experience from our last... The meals we had were again tasteless and there was no pride taken in presentation. How has this place maintained a hatted status? We will not be wasting anymore time or money here!!

At what point does a restaurant become a consistently great place to dine? 2 visits... 5 visits... even 10? Try 14 years of dining at Me Wah and a minimum of 2 visits per year if not more... and nothing less than perfect memories. The amazing food, atmosphere, service skills and impressive beverage list aside.. The team at Me Wah... More

We are very lucky that Me Wah is actually our 'local' chinese! The fact that the service and food quality are very high end makes us feel very spoiled. Stanley and the team are consistenly attentive and you never feel as if their serivce is forced or reluctant. The little things like opening the door for you as you leave... More

Had an average family dinner there 12 months ago, hoping the standards might have improved, this time I went with takeaways. The Sweet & Sour Pork was tough and chewy with a sickly sauce while the Satay dish was overpowered by undercooked onions (and very little meat). It's so disappointing how the standards have dropped at this restaurant after they... More
