It's a neighborhood gem

I decided to write a review after visiting many times over the last ten years. Here's why - the food is priced right and predictable good. Like most foodies-I like slight changes to menu items. It's not a problem at Meiwah - the service is seamless.

We were entertaining a grandson just returned from his 2nd year of college. He wanted a mixture of interesting Chinese, especially Peking duck. We haven't eaten there in a while, but it seemed the perfect place. Service was superb, even though the lunch crowd was leaving as we arrived. We were seated promptly; orders were taken when WE were ready.... More

This is on the verge of bvecoming an institution. The food is generous and outstanding. Service is wonderful, and the menu keeps changing with new options. Children are welcome, although thety may not be happy if they are expecting a run of the mill Cantonese restaurant. This is fine dining, with a staff who can explain the details of the... More

Sometimes the food is really good and the service is excellent. Other times, the food is okay and the service is mediocre. If you want vegetables with meat, be sure to ask what it has!

Meiwah is our go-to Chinese restaurant. The service is usually very good and the food is fresh and tasty (even for delivery). The portions are very generous, so it's best to go with a group so you can try everything and still have leftovers. If you go on Christmas Eve (as we do!) make sure to make a reservation.

I went here for a quick lunch during the workday. The menu is a little confusing and there are not a lot of descriptions. I quickly made a choice for General Tso's tofu. It was good but no veggies came with it. I ate the whole plate. Prices are fine. It seemed a little busy. I would go if you... More

By himself for a change, Ben found himself with time on his hands after a quicker than usual doctor's appointment, and quite hungry following the obligatory fasting. He had read the reviews for Mei Wah on Tripadvisor and was grateful for the opportunity to stop in and see for himself. The premises are comfortable and inviting, with a glass wall... More

We ordered the duck and it was delicious! They brought a whole duck and carved it next to our table. Every time we have been there the food has been delicious and the service has been great!
