Whenever we visit Washington DC, if we are in the mood for exceptionally good Chinese food we will make our way to Meiwah. The squid with spiced salt is exceptional in every way and is a staple for us when we visit Meiwah. I cannot recommend it more highly. The entrée portions are reasonably sized and the composition has never... More

I chose Meiwah for an early dinner on a business trip since it was close to my hotel and their menu included a number of vegetarian/vegan options. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating, and is located on a corner lot that is great for people-watching. My impression was that it was more American than Chinese - the décor... More

Visited for a quick meal after long flight. Although the matrie-d was very friendly, the waiting staff were not. The food tasted ok but 2 of the dishes I ordered were look warm. I am sure there are many better options for Chinese in Washington.

We were staying in a hotel next door and decided to try this restaurant for carryout. Menu is pretty extensive and they have an area for pickup so easy to get orders. The portion size for both was generous. The ingredients were fresh; but one dinner needed a little more seasoning and one was very good. If in this area... More

I finally visited this place after walking past for many years as it's near my company's DC office. I'm pleased to say my experience was good. Great steamed veg buns - big size and tasty along with veg tempura. For main I had the Garlic eggplant which was very tasty. I will be coming back again for the convenience of... More

This large Chinese restaurant has a large outdoor sidewalk patio as well as many indoor tables. We ordered Kung Pao chicken and Mongolian beef to share. Both were good but unremarkable. The Mongolian beef was not listed on the menu as being spicy--correctly listed, as it was not (contrary to my expectations for that dish). Service--from the hostess, our waiter,... More

The food was really good and it was close to our hotel. If the hotel had a fridge I would have considered take out. The drinks are potent but tasty. The service was excellent. I definitely recommend if looking for good Chinese food.
