Possibly the best Chinese food that we have had in Australia, certainly up there with the Flower Drum in Melbourne. Hobart is lucky to have a Chinese restaurant of this quality. For entrees, the crab dumplings and duck sang choy bao were perfect. For mains, the blue eye trevalla was delicious, Cantonese style, and the Szechuan duck a lovely contrast with fresh spice. No commercial artificial sauces here. Excellent wine list and service. A very memorable dinner.

We live in Hong Kong and used to high standard of Cantonese cooking and services of restaurants in Hong Kong five star hotels. During this trip of Tasmania we were surprised to discover top class Cantonese cuisine in Hobart in this restaurant. We have lunch in Me Wah in Launceston and the manager was kind enough to book a live lobster and a 1 kilo live abalone for us in Me Wah of Hobart. When we arrived we found the restaurant comfortable, spacious and not noisy at all. The waitresses were well trained and operated as if it is a fine dining restaurant in five star hotel. The lobster and abalone was presented to us, very much alive before cooking. The cooking was superb, ingredients fresh of course. We ordered wine by the glass and surprised to find even medium grade wines can be ordered by the glass. The wine list was reasonably extensive and price reasonable.

Top service in this established Chinese restaurant. Extensive menu and outstanding food particularly the seafood. This was our second visit and we'd go again.

Chef I understand comes from Hong Kong.

The food and service were good. We did not find the tariff pricey unlike other comments.

If you like Chinese food, this is the place to go in Hobart.

Food and service is as good as anywhere in Australia. Top notch. Only criticism is that the staff can be too attentive and can get a bit annoying.
