House of Chow

If you like Chinese, this is it. Wide selection and well prepared with good service. Never a next day headache from MSG.

Love this restaurant and it is coming back to the awesome place is was under Amy Chow. There is so much on the menu and oh so fresh and well done. The owner is always there and great to work with about special needs.

So far this has been my favorite chinese restaurant in columbia. Kung pao and cashew chicken were top notch, had no complaints about service.

Could not get anyone to seat me, waited over 10 min. while waitresses went past without acknowledging me. When seated, asked a passing waitress a question...she said 'I'm busy, I can't help you.' Food was average. Won't go back.

When I first moved to Columbia this was probably one of the better Chinese restaurants in town. Not the best I've had, but better compared to the other local options. Lately I've been going to ABC Chinese and think it's great. But I recently decided to give House of Chow a try again and was very disappointed. The food quality... More

The weird thing is that it wasn't awful because it wasn't fresh or the oil the chicken was cooked in was old, which are typical reasons why American Chinese food may be bad. No, my husband's and my food were both bad because it just tasted horrible. The sauces were not good. The chicken was small pieces of tough, poor... More

We have been to House of Chow 2 times now and both times the food was amazing and had great service! We had the fried rice with shrimp and it was excellent with a very generous portion! The wait staff was very attentive and did a great job. Both times a 5 star experience! Thank You

Special green tea and Kung Pau chicken was the best. Just the right amount of spice. I am never disappointed!

Ah, Christmas time. That special time of year when you really feel for servers at anywhere food is concerned. Office parties, relatives coming in, old friends really not wanting to cook. Nerves get frayed. And sometimes the quality of the food suffers, especially anywhere near a shopping center. Which is EXACTLY where you find House of Chow, in a strip... More

Lunched there today, spouse had beef with broccoli which she really enjoyed, I had stir fried cashew chicken, also very good. both had white rice, egg roll, wonton soup, and tea. Very pleasant meal with good service and moderate price. Next time we're ln Columbia we'll go back. Check their hours before going.
