“Almost there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Started off with the duck San Choy bow and lamb pancake, both were delicious. The main which was honey pork, fell short of flavour. The staff were attentive and welcoming. The food seemed overpriced, but I guess you can charge those prices when there is no competition. Overall worth a visit if your cashed up.

“Attentive staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Excellent food, and the type of attentive staff I last saw about 30 years ago. Tried the seafood in a basket, and Cantonese beef which were both gluten free. Really wanted to try their signature Abalone dish, but unfortunately this wasn't gluten free.

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

After hearing so much about how great the Me Wah brand is in Tasmania, we were really dissapointed with our meals. Perhaps it is the reputation of the Hobart restaurant that bouys the positive reviews, but our meals were really bland and lacking any memorable flavour. Our regular Chinese place in Melbourne buries this place and yet does not recieve the same accolades. Maybe we were there on an off night? Service however was fantastic.

“I just don't get it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Think Chinese... ? I think full flavor, big selection and priced so you and your table can over buy and share a real array of food. What I don't think of is a $30 eye fillet Szechuan beef. My feelings are that when you eat Chinese you should eat like the Chinese. The cuts of meat were wrong, the dishes were sparse and lacking flavor all set is a sterile office like building.
Didn't love it guys
