Very close to hotels walking distance. Main waiter came over and tried to decide how to make the food that I was asking for. My grandson ordered the soup loved it. Loved the view.

I was in town for work and went here for dinner. It was quick and the people were nice. I ordered beef fried rice and orange chicken. It was good but not great. More on the bland side than the outstanding side.

We went here as the another restaurant was full up on a Saturday night (yep, my fault for not planning). The food is very good, but not any better that many Chinese restaurants I have been to. It is a solid choice, but it won't shake your foundations by any means. Also, I ordered soup, and had about three spoonful's... More

I was disappointed the first time I ate lunch at this restaurant. I asked for the server to recommend a dish and although I cannot remember the name of the dish, I do remember that it was one of the worst lunches in a Chinese restaurant. Too bad because the outside of the restaurant looks promising. The inside is good.... More

Food was good, not remarkable. Plan on spending 16 bucks per plate. Service was attentive but not real friendly.

We've enjoyed everything we've ordered at Meiwah, but the Peking Duck, updated to Beijing Duck, is worth ordering just for the performance. The maitre d' cuts the duck tableside, creating a beautiful platter of delectable duck slices. This is nothing like the hacked-up hunks served at other Chinese restaurants. It is as lovely to watch as to eat. On two... More

I have noticed that there are some persons who had bad experiences at Mei Wah. However, I have eaten at Mei Wah for the past 10 years and their service; the quality of their food and the ambience always leave me completely satisfied. Their food is spectacular. Their service is quick and attentive. The prices are reasonable and the portions... More

We started with some veggie dim sums - so tasteless we could not finish. We continued with the iconic General Tso chicken, which was simply tasteless. To crown it all the service was bad. Very few spices were used in the dishes. It all felt like a fake Chinese restaurant. Surely enough it will not be difficult to find better... More

I don't recommend eating here. My husband and I ate at the restaurant yesterday. I ordered pork sweet sour and my husband ordered Pho soup. During our lunch I pointed out, that the pork tastes like it's been sitting out for a while. I would have never thought that they would serve me bad food. I am 36 weeks pregnant... More
