It is hard to authenticate the food which can be delicious or not depending upon th chief on duty. Service varies but does not felel authentic. An okay Chinese experience far from a big city with a local Chinese community.

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

My wife have been visiting Chow's for years, and we have never been disappointed. Every dish on the menu is prepared with love. The service is always excellent. It's a bit hidden, but absolutely worth finding.

This was a very tastefully decorated restaurant priced mid range but gave you good portions to eat. There was also good variety in the menu and the place was immaculately clean. Small in size but great variety in choices and ability to mix your orders...More
