When I saw they had Noodles, it captured my attention. Average place - I ordered the special plate and it wasn't so good. Was expecting more of it. Plate size is ok but no flavor at all. Chicken rice was gross. Will not come back

We go to Chows a few times a year with a group of friends and just returned this week. The restaurant is attractive inside with beautiful live flowering orchid plants everywhere you look. We had very good service and everyone enjoyed their dinners. I had...More

Chow's always bats 1000. The restaurant was slammed but we had to wait only moments before a table was available. Our waiter was so busy that the manager took our order. The busy waiter managed to serve us quickly and efficiently and even refill water...More

This is some of the worst Asian food I have ever had. Chow Fun was just awful. They need to find a chef with some authentic recipes who likes food. Big disappointment.

Our friends we're traveling with had eaten here before. It was our first time. The food is fresh and different than typical Chinese restaurant. It was quite tasty! Highly recommend it.

OK, I get it, some restaurants close during the lunch and dinner hours. But if you close at 2, and seat a family at 1:30, what are you expecting? We became the only diners in the restaurant by 1:45. Then all of the staff retired...More

Chow's has a warm inviting ambiance that belies the fact that it's in a strip mall. It can't really be seen from the outside but, once inside, one realizes that the blinds that are the reason for this are a positive point. The wait staff...More

Twenty years, Chow's served pretty good, upscale Chinese food, which at the time was something Santa Fe lacked. Now they are living off the fumes of their former reputation. The food is a rather bland, lackluster offering of dishes that masqueraded as Chinese, but could...More

Schlocky hyper-theatrical waiter, really mediocre sweet and sour pork, won-ton soup had little flavor, luckily did not encounter the old lady who is rude beyond description. Wanted to like it again, because Santa Fe's Asian is so sorry compared to ABQ, but I could not.
