THis restaurant is on your site but it is the Juan Tabo location which is now operating under another name. The name was never "Chinese Bistr" always "asian." Don't know what the mix-up is.

My husband and I have eaten at Chow's many times over the past several years and have recently found ourselves being less satisfied.

My wife and I saw Chow's Asian Bistro while walking in the mall. We decided to try it for dinner on our next visit. We did on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was simple and service was standard. The menu had several items that were spicy and that really limited what my wife would order. She decided on pineapple chicken... More

Good Service. Our lunch was divided into many meals. We started with potstickers, which had chicken and were tasty. We then had the most delicious roast duck. The Pad Thai was a little vinegar tasting. It also could have benefited from more vegetables and a more complex flavor. It was one noted. The lo mein and chicken combo plates were... More

Lunch here is such a treat because they have a lunch menu that lets you pick from the regular menu or Lunch specials. The specials come with soup (egg drop or hot & sour soup) and salad. You get to pick your protein (chicken, beef or shrimp) and match it with a sauce (sesame, Mongolian, cashew, black bean etc) and... More

Always tasty and friendly service. The pot stickers and lettuce warps are excellent. My favorite dish is the nuts and birds cashew chicken. My husband and I go there once a month.

My wife and I occasionally eat here, and in the past the food as always been good. But today I came solo and tried a Chinese New Year special of short ribs. The meat was extremely tough, hard to cut, and even harder to chew. The short ribs were cut in a strange way also which made it hard to... More

I have eaten here for dinner several times and it has been excellent. The coffee chicken was great as well as the service. I ate here at lunch this week and the food was as good as it was for dinner. Stopped for lunch while at mall. Service was very good.

If you want Asian, it is worth a trip to find this. I like the food especially the shrimp and walnut dish.

Once worth stopping for, now amongst the better mall sit-downs. Pepper beef was cracked peppercorns, and beef. Used to dig it much here - now ho-hum. Fried rice is dull, brown rice is glum, rice noodles are unimpressive. Doubt the chef eats here anymore - the food court's just a stroll away in the mall. Supposed to have delivery.
