Went with a coupon for buy one get one that was published for supporters of a local non-profit. They would not honor it! Not expired, not misprinted, they just didn't want to. Period. We felt good about our dinners until then. We paid in full, plus we paid in spades with indigestion and disgust. A real shame as this restaurant... More

Take the St Francis exit, go a few blocks north to an exit on the right for McDonalds, At stop sign, carefully turn left, go under St Francis and see Plaza del Sol catty-corner to McD. It is in there. My hot and sour was the best I have ever had--has diced tomatoes in it. My wife and I each... More

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant anywhere! My husband has traveled the world, and always looks forward to a visit to this restaurant. The food is excellent! The Pot Stickers were delicious, as was the Dragon Sesame Chicken and the spicy beef and asparagus dish I had, which was a "Special". It is family owned and operated, and tonight, while... More

We ordered carry out dinners. I had "Chow's Spicy". The menu describes it - "This dish is addictively hot! Chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu rubbed with cayenne chili powder, wok-tossed with garlic, sliced ginger, scallions, and Sichuan dry chili pods". Instead it had broccoli, onions, bell peppers - plus it was packed with small pieces of dried red pepper pods... More

Good Asian food for our table of eight was served with one dish about 10 minutes late. Two of the eight had a second beer brought which was not ordered and was added to the bill. The owner/manager would not let our group get separate checks of three couples and two singles. She was adamant in her refusal and said... More

We went there for lunch. We got two entrées to share bcuz the portions are big. We got the dragon sesame and the garlic broccoli with beef. Wow, the dragon sesame was crispy and very flavorful! The beef was well seasoned, the broccoli was crisp and had just the right amount of sauce. The apps are just as fresh and... More

We all complain that there are no 'good' chinese restaurants in Santa Fe but Chow's is worth a visit. Located in an unactractive section of the city, but with a surprising decent view; you would not think of going there by looks alone. Yet, the food is very good and the service is friendly and efficient. The price is very... More

My wife have been visiting Chow's for years, and we have never been disappointed. Every dish on the menu is prepared with love. The service is always excellent. It's a bit hidden, but absolutely worth finding.

This was a very tastefully decorated restaurant priced mid range but gave you good portions to eat. There was also good variety in the menu and the place was immaculately clean. Small in size but great variety in choices and ability to mix your orders to suit your tastes.

This is our favorite Asian restaurant in Santa Fe. Tucked away in a shopping center off St. Michaels Drive, Chow's offers a quiet and very pleasing dinning environment. Start your meal with a serving of spring rolls (one order is nice for 2 people) that stand vertically in an orange-ginger glaze. Our favorite entree is General Tao's Chicken (a recurring... More
