I ate at Meiwah twice during my last business trip to DC and the food was excellent both times. The sauteed General Tso's Chicken is a great choice. If, like me, you live in the boonies and aren't familiar with city dining--learn to embrace take-out while you're in DC. It's easier than waiting for a table. Call ahead.

We ate here on the day of our arrival. After traveling we just wanted to find something close to our hotel and agreed on Meiwah's. The servers were friendly, courteous and prompt. The food portions were quite big and we probably could have shared among the table. That said, the price point was spot on and made it an affordable... More

The food was great!! Beware they give you huge portions! We are a family of 5 and could have split 3 meals with the food we ordered. Being on vacation we couldn't take anything with us and had to waste so much food.

I've been here several times before over the years and have had very good Chinese food. Yesterday's meal was disappointing, particularly the meat spring roll. Not very favorable or crisp. Chicken with black bean sauce was good, but not great. The restaurant was extremely noisy for lunch so had difficulty hearing conversation. Will try again, since an outlier from prior... More

I love Chinese food but this place was a real disappointment. Once they sit you down at your table they are just in a rush to get you fed, make you pay your bill and get out again to free up the seat for the next customer, even though when we were there it wasn't busy. I ordered a chicken... More

We wanted some authentic Chinese food and we got it here. Wonderful service at great taste... better than the typical American Chinese places.

Love Chinese food and was excited to try this spot on our first night in Washington. We were left very disappointed with tasteless food. $50 for two of us excluding drinks so not exactly cheap. Would not eat here again. Mediocre at best.

With a Chinese food craving, my wife and I stopped here for dinner. The place was extremely busy which raised our expectations. Unfortunately this was soon dashed when we were presented with the rather tasteless meals. My wife asked for chicken and cashew nuts which surprisingly was not on the menu, no problem was the waiters response, what was served... More
