This was very average Chinese food. I had the orange chicken.The prices are decent, and the service is very much what you would expect.

Fine for convenience, but I wouldn't make this a destination restaurant. The food was good and arrived quickly. Nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home about either.

We went here for dinner and were surprised at the food given that the ratings were pretty good for the place. All three dishes that we had were not very good, super deep fried and the sauces were not good. I would not recommend.

Five star all the way in my book. We found this place looking for an escape from a very expensive and uninviting hotel restaurant and what a find. It was packed and all the tables were full! No messing around here by notional Maitre d' hotel with a booking list and not much else. The manager was “on the case”... More

This is a bustling lunch or dinner place on the corner of M Street , near the Ritz Carleton , near Georgetown/West End. The wait staff is efficient, and helpful, especially with lunch groups etc. The food has never been a disappointment. Their Kung-Pao chicken is pretty good. So is the Crispy Tofy in Spicy sauce. My friends had their... More

Good food, fast service but the waitress made it extremely awkward and uncomfortable at the end when she made a comment about the tip we were giving (over 10%). We just wanted to get out of there very quickly (and didn't offer up any further tip!)

I am from Hong Kong so I know Chinese food well. I ordered a wanton soup which was amongst the worst that I had even eaten. The wanton skin was very thick and the meat inside was minuscule. I hardly touched it. Then, I had a deep fried spicy squid which was average, although a little bit too hard. I... More

We found this place because we needed to go to the Walgreens down the street. We got take out and they are really fast. The food was excellent and the portions generous. The Mongolian beef seems to be popular and was delicious. Great comfort food after a long day.

Frequented by senators, mayors and even the occasional rock star, Meiwah is a long time favorite in DC's Golden Triangle. The service is lightning fast, though a bit dour. And the dishes are tasty, but, at least when I was there, not so flavorful. Meiwah is good, but could be better.

Thank Ted J
