House of Chow? WOW!

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... read more

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!

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.

My wife wanted to try this restaurant after hearing a recommendation from a coworker. The overall restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere with piano as compared to most greasy Chinese takeout/buffet places. We were seated promptly. Overall it was an "okay" meal for the most part. I had the pineapple fried rice, which was uniquely served in a hollowed out half... More

Several friends met at House of Chow for a birthday celebration last night (a busy Friday evening). We had at least 8 different entrees that included vegetarian, seafood, chicken and beef dishes. All were pronounced "excellent". All plates were not cleaned only because half of us had more than we could eat at one sitting and took home enough for... More

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
