Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This experience was totally amazing. The food was awesome, the service second to none and the whole ambiance of the restaurant was excellent. I would say it was the best Chinese meal I have ever had.

This restaurant doesn’t look a lot when you walk in from the outside but once inside it is magical . The most attentive waiters and waitresses- so helpful. But the reason you are there is the food and it is absolutely outstanding! The peking duck...is the most beautifully presented I have ever seen and tasted amazing ! Truly fabulous restaurant!More

An outstanding Chinese restaurant with absolutely amazing food. Enjoyed one dinner and yum cha lunch at Me Wah as well as a couple of sneaky takeaways. Delicious, top quality food was delivered each time. To be honest, I was a bit sceptical of the whole...idea of Chinese fine dining but Me Wah really blew me away. Fresh and clean-tasting food where the quality and flavour of the ingredients spoke for themselves. Impeccably presented and very creative dishes. Exceptional service. Definitely worth trying at least once if you’re in Hobart… and definitely worth booking in advance!More

Very good, but could improve in many issues - we are, after all, judging against the top tier here. Best of Me Wah are the outstanding meat dishes and the service. Also the scallop starter was five-star. However, the astonishing wine list is priced beyond...the reach (or interest) of most customers, which means that the list's better bargains are all the time sold out. A pity too that there is no fino sherry, which is excellent (and good value) for many spicy Chinese foods. A strange omission for supposedly the best wine list in Tasmania. A spinach and crab soup starter was unpleasantly thick and glutinous with a strange bright green colour (food colouring?). The menu speaks of "broth": thickening it to a virtually glue-like consistency is perhaps popular in China, but not pleasant to most Western palates. Meat mains of duck and chicken were splendid, but abalone noodles showed hardly a trace of abalone, or much anything else - except noodles. A crab, egg and mushroom main was presented as an unappetizing-looking egg scramble with little trace of the seafood. The chocolate parts of desserts were admirable, while the sorbets and ice creams appeared to have plenty of food colouring but little flavour. An exception was the tasty mango sorbet. In all, some really great stuff, but too uneven for 5 stars.More

Discerning and well-connected travelers would know that Hobart's Me Wah is among the very best Cantonese restaurants in the Southern Hemisphere. We finally got to visit this hidden gem venue in December and were most impressed with the food & immaculate service. Even the wine...service was exceptionally good and commensurate with the venue's legendary wine list. Many aspects of Me Wah reminds one of 2-star or even 3-star restaurants overseas; there is hardly any other venue in Australia that does hospitality on the same level.More

This would have to be the best Asian Restaurant I have ever been to on the Eastern Seaboard. Best service I have ever had from a Restaurant in the suburbs of any City in Australia. The decor ihas been done to perfection and the food...is fantastic. You will have to google to find Me Wah Hobart because you will walk right past and not even know it is there. A real hidden gem.More

I had a work banquet here. The food was good without being amazing. There were long gaps between the courses which were too long. Dessert fondant was undercooked even for a fondant.

Me Wah has been our favourite restaurant for some years. This visit was disappointing. The dishes were served luke warm. We had the Singapore Chilli King prawns and the Buddha Chicken dishes. The prawn dish was overly sweet with barely any chilli. The chicken dish...didn't have enough contrast of flavours with the result that it was too sweet.More

Visited this restaurant as a group of 4 on a Friday night for dinner. Booked in advance. Not a huge fan of Chinese cuisine, but the food at this restaurant is next level. Ordered spring rolls, pork dumplings and Peking duck pancakes as entrees. For...mains ordered Singaporean chilli king prawns, honey char sui pork belly, Cape Grimm beef black pepper and sichuan spiced lamb with a serving of special fried rice each. Food was exceptional quality. Service was excellent. Provided magazine holders for each table to store your handbags in. Never experienced that before! Located in a shopping centre, so plenty of car parking. Look forward to returning to this restaurant when next in Hobart. Would recommend to others who enjoy Chinese fine dining.More

Came here for lunch to try the yum cha. It was a Friday and I perhaps expected a few more people but was happy with the food. It took a bit of time but this would have been because these were freshly prepared. My only...knock was that all the dishes came all at the same time, I should have asked for this but generally when dining out alone, this seems to happen without doing so.More

Outstanding dinner of the freshest seafood and veges. We all choose noodle seafood dish. Delicious prawns, scallops, white fish, and calamari with lightly cooked greens. As well we had a delicious bottle of Stefani Lubiana Sav Blanc. A winery we visited yesterday and was stunning.

Everything about Me Wah is very good. The spacing of the tables, the relative quietness of the room, the attentive service and the food were all features. However, the hype generated by this restaurant feted as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the county...was not really met. All dishes were pleasant but not exceptional. The Peking Duck as a shared entree, for example, was small, rolled pancake each filled with Duck - very pleasant but I expected more for the price.More
