We go to Sunday Yum Cha every 6 months, and it never fails to impress, for such a quality Chinese restaurant, the prices are quite reasonable too. Endless fresh tea. Service is impeccable, prompt, respectful, and the waiters are knowledgeable about the food too. When pressed at home, we use the takeaway service, which is excellent, hot, tasty, and usually...

Me Wah's menu and service is second to none - we have been eating there on and off for years and we've always been satisfied. The food is expensive but worth it for a meal to remember.

Overall we liked our meal at Me Wah. The crispy skin chicken, duck pancakes were a stand out....but i just left feeling my expectations werent met. Ive eaten plenty of chinese food in China, Asia....and I think it was up there....just probably the price of food and drinks weren't value for money for me.

This restaurant came highly recommended by a Chinese colleague, and they did excel with the quality of their food. I had a banquet and the flavours and meal composition were truly excellent.

Sadly disappointed in this place and the reviews are really not indicative of the type of food served. A bible for a wine list with an amazing selection of very expensive wines and great service, no doubt, but delivered with an unnecessary pretentiousness. The food, which we came for was average, overpriced and although the dumplings were divine as was... More

I never knew about Me Wah until my colleagues invited me to this restaurant on my business trip to Hobart. As a Chinese living in Sydney for a long time, eating Chinese food all my life, I do have high standards. However, I am even more surprised by the service and food quality at Me Wah! To me, it matches... More

Being Coeliac does restrict you but it also means you get to eat some amazing meals too - fresh, spicy and creative. We told the staff at Ma Wah about our needs and they reassured us they had gluten free dishes. Sadly they did. It reminded me of the GF food served up on some airlines - bland and unimaginative....

Honestly some of the best food we have ever eaten! Fresh delicious ingredients, loads of finesse & style in presentation. The staff were wonderful & we felt very special. Worth the money for overall a fabulous experience.
