For a range of good Cantonese, Szechuan and Hunan

Landed up for an unplanned late dinner on a Friday. The place was busy even at 9 pm so we figured it is popular. We went straight to their entrees. The twice cooked pork was meh but the jumbo prawns and scallops came in a zingy sauce, not over done. Went well with brown rice and stir fried noodles.

So this restaurant was pretty close to our hotel so we decided to give it a try! The service was pretty fast, it's quite obvious that the servers first language is Chinese but his English was good and he was able to answer all of our questions. The spring rolls that we shared for starter were ok,,, as were from... More

Nice place close to DuPont Circle; attentive service; excellent food. I was able to find on-street parking within a couple of blocks, or there are garages within a block.

Not far from our Hotel. The food was very good and the portions were large. We ate there more than once on our trip.

We ate here the second day of our stay. Food was okay. Staff was rude and not so nice. Kind of expensive.

We turned up one night without reservation and they quickly accommodated us. We particularly enjoyed the sweet and sour chicken. There was lots to eat and the orange segments at the end of the meal were refreshing and tasty. Great value for money especially if you are on a budget. Take home what you don't eat.

Meiwah is a favorite restaurant in DC. It is a very well known place, especially with the power brokers of DC. Their pictures are all over the walls. There are reports that this place was Bill Clinton's favorite when he was President. We had both veggie and meat dumplings and the broccoli in garlic sauce plus other dishes. The food... More

My wife and I order the vegetable rolls for an appetizer. They arrived cold and were very hard. My wife had a hard time cutting hers. The waiter brought two hot rolls and very were very tasty. My wife and I share the General Tso's chicken. Good decision since it was a large serving with five pieces of chicken. The... More

We met some family members at Meiwah while visiting DC. The food was good, but the service was atrocious. When my husband asked for more rice, the waitress actually counted how many rice bowls had been brought to the table and wouldn't bring more. No one there was very friendly. If you really want Chinese, this is a safe bet... More

My wife and I visited Meiwah after stumbling upon it while on our way to another local restaurant. We were dressed casually which was appropriate for the restaurant. We opted to sit on the patio because the weather was nice. Our server took several minutes to come to our table even though the patio was not busy. When he did... More
