They call themselves contemporary Chinese but that's just total baloney. From the crabby husband to the pushy wife at the front of the house, this place screams "go elsewhere." (Go to Yin Yang!) The food is only average Chinese, with nothing special, in spite of...More

Went to Chows on a very slow evening. There were maybe 2 or 3 other tables with customers. Had a variety of foods including Mongolian beef, Cashew chicken, beef Kung Pao with an appetizer of Ranch Spring Rolls. Most of the meals are between $11...More

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

Really great food and by the time everyone ordered, there was enough to pass around and share between 5 of us. We also ordered a side dish of fried rice. But the best dish was the coffee chicken. It was really good!
