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

If you're looking for Asian food while in Santa Fe (I'm not sure why you're not eating southwest) this is the place to go. The spices are perfect and if you ask for hot, it's actually hot and perfect. In a town renowned for good...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,...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...More
