I should have listened to my rational self and not come here - given the location, this would very unlikely be an authentic venue.. Indeed it was not. Given the name, I figured it must have some Cantonese heritage and hence purposefully tried to stay away from anything that's spicy or seemingly not Cantonese. However, the problem was that its...

The service was a little slow for the emptiness of the restaurant, but nothing too dreadful. We ordered schezwan and orange chicken. The schezwan was tasty and tender but not at all spicy like the waitress warned. (I hate spicy and even I thought it was mild.) The orange chicken had a few bites that were fatty but wasn't awful....

Hotel recommended this Chinese restaurant because of its proximity as well as reputation. When I went inside, I saw framed reviews from Zagat. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed with the food. Coming from San Francisco where Chinese food is well-known especially in the numerous restaurants of Chinatown, I thought my food was no different from fast food Chinese you get at... More

Close to hotels, near DuPont Circle, Meiwah offered an extensive menu, tasty food, fast service. Reasonably priced for Washington DC.

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.
