Chow's was a welcome site when we arrived in a snow storm last Monday evening. Our waiter was friendly and welcoming, and he helped us decide what to order from their extensive menu. Served family style, the two dishes that we chose were generous and delicious. The hot tea was just what we needed to warm us inside and out.... More

Have eaten there twice in the past month. Two outstanding dishes made with fresh ingredients are the Coffee Chicken and Dragon Sesame Chicken or Beef. Service was excellent and dishes were plentiful, steaming hot and tasty.

Coffee Chicken and Bangkok Prawns - Yes! Yes! Whenever we want Chinese, we go to Chow's. Usually take out but we have eaten inside as well. Delicious food.

Coffee chicken, firecracker rice...amazing! What, that's what I said this is not the usual Chinese restaurant. You must try these two items your taste buds will thank you, a perfect blend of seasonings that you would never expect in Chinese food. These are just two items we tried this visit, we also experienced the appetizer Calamari...WOW, that's all I can... More

Lo mein...No mein I had the chicken lo mein. The chicken was chopped and dry. In my opinion, the flavor was limited. When i called in the order, i requested no rice to accompany another order. The gal screamed at me and said "it has no rice. Order rice apart." Okeeey...maybe just a bad day for her. The food is... More

The Coffee Chicken is excellent and many other dishes. We get take-out but have also eaten inside, which is very nice. One of my favorites!

We were a party of four that all ordered different dishes: Sesame Chicken, Coffee Chicken, Mongolian Beef, Sweet and Sour Chicken. All tasted good, but some found their choice to be too spicy. The pot stickers as an appetizer were good as well - but once again, be careful of the spicy sauce served with it.

After being told at HIDDEN CHICKEN that it was too late for service at their restaurant, we walked over to CHOW's. Why haven't we come here earlier. It is a quaint little place, and very good food. When we come back to NM for an extended visit again, this little restaurant will be one of our stops. Loved it!!
