Meiwah is near Georgetown off of M street. It's been there forever. They have a fast to-go area and their vegetable steamed dumplings are just perfect with a chewy consistency and a filling that is filling. Try that with the spicy cabbage salad. Their food seems authentic to me but I have not tried everything on their menu yet.

... so that we had time for more visits at Meiwah. The food was great! We ordered four different dishes and we were all very pleased with our food. If we had known how big the portions were, we would have shared some dishes instead. It felt bad leaving so much (good) food. The waitress had good knowledge about food... More

This was next to our hotel and we stopped in after a full day of sight seeing. So glad we did! Beef Szechuan was amazing! Pho was delicious! They went above & beyond to accommodate our kids with cute little straws in their drinks. Great find!

Food is average ,drinks are so-so $$ are reasonable,they have a outside patio, they have indoor eating as well. Service is a toss up ,we had a older male server not friendly and horrible service, Next time a young lady was pleasant and service was a little better ,but slow.

They were quite busy when we stopped in, but we were seated right away anyway and tended to in good time. Our food arrived in good time and was hot, full of flavor and there was lots of it.

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
