We stayed in DuPont Circle area and were fortunate to discover Meiwah the first day of our visit. Nice, accommodating staff. Great location and nice interior space. Wide food and cocktail selection. We sat and enjoyed our meal, we didn't feel rushed at all. Good experience.

I had never been to this property before and a friend lives nearby. He suggested that we give it a try and we went on Thanksgiving Eve. It was crowded, but there were a few tables left. While my favorite Chinese place in the D.C. area is in Falls Church, this one is the best I've visited in D.C. proper.... More

Every day Chinese fare. Middle of the road chow that seems to be popular based on our weekday visit... the place was full. Ambiance feels as if it's been here for years... and it has. Service was fine. We stopped in for apps and drinks and everything we had was good. Liked the spring rolls and the steamed dumplings best.... More

My wife and I wanted some carryout to take back to our hotel room. The Meiwah was close by. I placed my order and went to the bar. I ordered a glass of wine, the bartender thanked me for polishing off a bottle that he had sitting there for years. (What?) I picked up my order after finishing the "old"... More

Been going here for more than 20 years with friends and always sit at the same table. Food is consistent, service efficient and friendly and the only issue sometimes is parking as there s area has grown up. They can make it spicy or mild depending on your palate. Great place to celebrate birthdays etc and the prices are fair

Meiwah was near are hotel and ratings were slightly higher than good...and that was the truth. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. They offer asparagus dishes with choice of a meat. I love stir-fried asparagus but what I got was bland. My husband's dish was "ok" too but not memorable. Service was prompt. It's a good place to... More

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.
