With menu items such as Nuts and Birds, Coconut Curry, and Volcano Fish you know you are not in a traditional Chinese restaurant. Their Coffee Chicken is a delight.Vegetarians and Canirvores will find gourmet quality dishes that are not easily found. Every dish we tried...More

We just had a small birthday party at Chow's. The signature dish is the coffee chicken. It's amazing. We also had the prawns with walnuts in a sweet/sour sauce and the delectable fried wontons stuffed with a light cheese that came with a lime/ginger sauce....More

A friend recommended this place, so we tried it for lunch, and decided to have all appetizers. We happened to pick a very busy day when there was a large group there for lunch, so that may have impacted our experience. The pot stickers were...More

Over the years, my husband and I have given this place several chances, and every single time we go there (usually because somebody we know invites us to tag along), we come away saying "no más." For us, Chow's just doesn't live up to its...More
