Great Chinese Food in West End

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... read more

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.

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

First off, their website shows a sushi menu but it is not offered at this location. That was disappointing. My kids liked the Pad Thai. My mom and I had the Shrimp and Scallops with Fresh asparagus. It shows as a spicy item. My mom asked for Mild and I told the waitress I like spicy. Both of ours were... More

Hubby and I joined our good friends George and Andrew for dinner tonight. We started with the lightly battered squid and pan fried meat dumplings. The squid was very good. Just the right amount of salt and spiciness. The pan fried meat dumplings were just okay. I had better. My cousin Sandra makes them better. The shell was thin -... More

The food is ok, have had sitdown and takeout. Nothing fancy or memorable, just normal Chinese food to me.
