Clients enjoyed the food and quality service. Menu had plenty of choices and the soup came with the entree.

Quick service, delicious dim sum morsels. Couldn't even tell you what I ate, but it was all flavorful and well cooked. The pork had a rather strong taste, otherwise it was all great!

This was a neighborhood adventure. 17 of us went for a Sunday buffet. The food was generally good but not great. It is for the adventuresome since the Dim Sum is not your typical(American) Chinese food. Many of my neighbors chose to order more familiar dishes from the menu and these were very good! The place was crazy crowded but... More

In Cleveland for one day and wanted a good meal, so we went here for a late lunch and that was our mistake. The dim sum from he trolley was good, but the selection was poor. We ordered from the dim sum menu in addition, but the experience wasn't the same, dry pork, etc.

Li Wah is in the Asian Plaza in Cleveland's Chinatown and is nicely decorated to add to the Asian atmosphere. The menu is very diverse and is traditionally Chinese so that makes the eating experience fun. We were there for Chinese New Year's and ordered some specials off of the New Year menu and the regular menu. The fish maw... More

This is a fairly large restaurant in a Chinatown plaza. The atmosphere is good, and the food is even better. They have a wide selection of traditional and authentic dim sum, and it's not too costly either. One of my favorite restaurants in Chinatown.

I've been searching for Cheong Fun in NE Ohio. A friend told me that I can get good dim sum at Li Wah. So, I decided to visit today. I was pleasantly surprised. Each item was delicious. The chicken feet to the steamed bao were all very good!!!

If I could just use a single phrase it would be 'simply fantastic'. I know Ali Wah gets some strange reviews some times on its Dim Sum but I have to say, I travel globally, eaten Dim Sum in over 30 countries and I would compare Li Wah to most as as good or better, this include many I have... More

We went for brunch and got a little of everything from tripe, chicken foot, shrimp, mushrooms and desserts. Everything was good. Make sure that you go with a sense of adventure and an open mind. Get there early because it gets busy on the weekend. It's a lot of fun. The dim sum servers don't speak English so it's a... More
