I found the restaurant to have great food and very reasonable prices. They also deliver and have a separate door to walk in and order for take out. Give this one a try you will not regret it.

My wife and I were staying in a hotel in a what amounts to a restaurant wasteland between Dupont Circle and Georgetown. I had noticed Meiwah on previous stays at this hotel and convinced my wife to give it a try. Bad move. The restaurant tries to cook all of the major regional Chinese cuisines (Hunan, Szechuan, Mandarin), so there... More

Nothing tasted fresh and everything tasted the same. This is Chinese food for people who are used to mediocre take out.

Meiwah is a regular haunt for me, so I was not surprised that the food was fabulous, even though the place was packed on Christmas eve! AS always, the eggplant in garlic sauce was great and the soup warm and filling!

It was just ok. Food was served lukewarm. We had a noodle dish and a whole fish. It was very busy, so that may have had something to d with it.

We were visiting the area For a few days and this Chinese restaurant was across from our hotel. We decided to give it a try and it was just ordinary. Nothing special. Better options for Asian cuisine are walking distance.

Stopped by for a quick lunch. We ordered the pot-stickers and they were great. Didn't really care for the dipping sauce (a little greasy), but the pot stickers themselves were excellent! I had the Chicken Pad Thai, my hubby had Sweet and Sour Chicken. Both were excellent! Great place to visit and can't wait to return.

Went over with my wife for sunday lunch as we both felt like Chinese food and had never tried that nice looking more on the fancy looking Chinese restaurant. Spring roll was good but OMG the sweet and sour pork was worse than what you find in food courts in all major malls. Dried miniature pieces of pork covered with... More
