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...More

Chow's was a classic lesson in you can do everything right except smile and fail. Food was excellent in taste, presentation and quantity. Service was fast and efficient but not personable, for a small intimate place like this a bid mistake. Along with crowding the...More

This gem is a great departure from the dishes you are used to getting. Highly recommend the lettuce wrap appetizer, the coffee-chicken (Mr. Chow's own recipe), and the scallops in spinach pesto (truly gourmet quality food). Service is friendly, efficient, and in a modern decor.
