Probably one of the best Chinese restaurants in DC. Good food, fast service, and prime location. Better than 90% of the restaurants in Chinatown.

Meiwah was, fortunately for us, right around the corner from our hotel. We enjoyed our meal of Orange Chicken, Lo Mein and Chicken Teriyaki. Everything was very fresh, nicely seasoned and very tasty. Will go back next time we're in the area. And as a bonus, they deliver!

Even though the reviews were not all good we decided to try since it was close to our hotel and we were tired after a long day. Chicken noodle soup was hot and fresh quality. Pad Thai was also very good. Restaurant was very busy even though we did take out.

I always hear great things about this place so I decided to try it. The order was to go and the staff was very friendly. I ordered General Tso's Shrimp. What a big big disappointment. The sauce was way way too sweet and it was not spicy at all although it had peppers in the sauce. The shrimp was heavily... More

Had takeout here tonight, and it's a good reliable, basic place. I had garlic eggplant, which was really good--- although a bit gooey, and i've had better in other restaurants. Cost was $13+ for this plus a box of rice. Food was ready in 10 min. Cashier was basic, not very friendly, but got the job done when i went... More

I've been coming here for years, overlooking the flaws because I live nearby and the food is OK, in two cases even quite good: garlic eggplant and salted shrimp. But I've had it with the attitude and frankly, the setting. Dirty, rundown, needful of a renovation for the last 5 years at least. Unfriendly bordering on rude. And on takeout,... More

This restaurant not only serves excellent food but was willing to make small modifications in the food preparation to accommodate my dietary restrictions.

Tried to do a carry out for 6 at a hotel around the corner from this Asian restaurant. Their on-line menu does not match up with what can be ordered or prices. Argued constantly with us, did the delivery, food was lukewarm and pretty tasteless. Do not recommend AT ALL.

This restaurant has most of the standards.....and a sushi menu....and a special asparagus menu. The food was fresh, asparagus was crisp and everything was well seasoned. The wait staff needs a few lessons in smiling but otherwise were good, efficient and fast. Outdoor patio was really nice...many umbrellas....
