This my neighborhood Chinese restaurant either to eat in or for take out delivery. Normally the food is above average and their Peking duck, carved at the table is excellent. Also they have wonderful dumplings and steamed vegetables. Their take out orders are nicely packaged and delivered while they are still warm. The in house service is typically "rude" Chinese...

The food was farily priced and very attentively served. There servings were generous and tasted fine. Everyone in this place was cheerful and friendly. It was my go to place for... More

I would normally not make sanitation an issue with a Chinese restaurant. In this case a few issues: 1. Black thick hair in our portion. Was taken away. Offered a new one but did not even apologize. Seems as if it's for them a normal routine. 2. Roach on carpet. After that everything around me looked filthy. Meat steamed dumplings... More

Let me be clear. I live in Denver and devour the real Chinese food served at China Jade in Aurora. I do not go to the "Americanized" Chinese food restaurants in Denver. We walked into Mei Wah for lunch and were promptly seated. Upon seeing the menu, it was clear we were in an American Chinese food place. All the... More

This restaurant is a few feet away from St. Gregory's Hotel. The raging wind made it an easy getaway for warmth, hot tea and moo shoo.

The vegetarian dumplings are amazing, best dumplings I've ever had. Especially since my wife and I don't eat pork, this was quite a treat.

Authentic Chinese food, and you can request no MSG and it will be made that way. Prices are reasonable, and you get your money's worth.

I always stop here at least once when I'm in town. I've never had a bad meal. This time I had some wonton soup, ribs and beef and bell pepper. The beef and bell pepper was exceptional. The ribs were ok, not exceptional, but good. The wonton soup was good. Service is always top notch. I highly recommend it.

Expansive menu of Chinese dishes, sushi etc. I love the fact that they have Orange Chicken with broccoli that is not deep fried. Spicy and as tasty as the breaded version. My husband had the hot and sour soup and said it was one of the best he ever had. Unfortunately the Mai Tais we had were not very good...
