“Go for dim sum”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Very good dim sum, maybe even excellent. Among the best dishes were the chicken's feet (unlike many Chinese restaurants, they didn't assume the 'big noses' wouldn't like the less typical dishes) and the more delicate of the dumplings, including rice dumplings with shrimp but with more flavor than most, and some with unique, very nice flavors. The sticky rice was good, though not a stand out and nearly all of the dishes were top notch, including the 'green vegetables' (can't remember which of the greens we tried - they were all called green vegetables in China, even when we asked our young Chinese friends to translate.)

The neighborhood is mostly industrial with housing a block or two over, but don't let that be a turn off, as the restaurant itself is in a mini-mall (Asia Plaza) catering to the Asian community. and the restaurant is not formal but very nice. Dim sum is available every day versus only on weekends.

“Not the best, but better than average”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I have been to Li Wah a number of times. Although it may be good, the quality of the food is declining.

“AsiaTown's LiWah”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

In my opinion, LiWah is the best Chinese Restaurant in the AsiaTown Neighborhood. Their food is always consistently good and service is always great. They have a very large indoor seating area and I use their take out service often. They also are open late, which is great for late night dining!

“An Asian Gem”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

A must stop for anyone who likes Chinese cuisine. Everything was cooked to perfection and fresh. Hot and sour soup was some of the best I ever had.
