My husband and I stopped impromptu in Columbia to avoid a storm. I had the Cashew Chicken with plum sauce and he had the Moo Shu combo. Both were very good. We had lots of meat and enough to take home for lunch the next day. We also had the special tea for 4 - peach. It had the flower... More

This used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant. It seems the menu as well as food quality has changed since it was redone. Service was very slow as there was one waitress for entire restaurant. We waited for our soup to be told it was given to someone else. Our egg drop soup, when we finally received it, was terrible,... More

Placed an order for pick-up and was told it would take 35 minutes. I went to pick my order and was told it would be another 25 minutes. I decided to wait and wonder around the dollar tree next store, and when I came back I had to wait another 10 minutes while they checked on my order, only to... More

The General Taos is the best version I've had. Generally top notch. I've read some comments about the weekend piano. Personally I love it... esp during the winter.

This used to be my favorite restaurant for Chinese food in Columbia. Not tonight. New Year's Eve. Got the House lo mein....one. shrimp. ONE. Also purchased the "Happy Family" which is one of the most expensive dishes on the menu. Supposed to have seafood galore......ONE scallop....sliced, deceptively so, in half. That's it. Greasy, overdone lo mein. The best part was... More

Good food and service but hard to hear each other with the piano playing very loud. Also seemed to have an eclectic play list for September, we thought we were in a Quintin Taratino movie.

House of Chow Beef is not my favorite, otherwise, we love House of Chow's food -- great take out on a night when we're beat.

The menu is always being improved, though we had no complaint with the standard one. Their chef keeps bringing back ideas from China. Local Asian students hang out there -- always a good omen. Amy Chow is our long-time personal friend, but that's not why we're writing this review. The place stands on its merits, well-deserved.

Sorry, the flavors are bland, and the sauces are very tired. No spark coming from this kitchen. There is very nice live piano music on weekends.
