“Reliably good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

I have always liked chow. We enjoyed a nice quarter duck with pancakes, then sweet and sour chicken and szechuan beef. I noticed the beef was not as good quality as in the past. The chicken balls were better and portion was very generous. Diet coke was flat and very small glasses.
Service is good, but I felt the waiter could have been a little friendlier.

“was ok! food a bit salty, had better salt n pepper squid and king prawn at other restaurants.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

went to chow last night with £19 groupon! they said we could not get the mixed starter for 2 but there was nothing on the voucher saying you couldn't get the mixed starter! had garlic prawns and prawn roll that was nice but very salty. for mains we had salt n pepper prawn and squid, once again was nice. i had the Singapore noodles with rice, this was ok as well. stay well clear of the prawn crackers, absolutely tasteless and greasy, worst crackers i have ever tasted! would probably go back but only with another voucher!!!!

“Refused to meet Groupon coupon value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

I purchased a Groupon coupon for Chow restaurant which had a face value of £48.00, however it was not possible to achieve this value by selecting two courses for two from the menu and they refused to allow us to select a whole crispy duct to make up the value and also refused to meet the coupon value in any way. The offer was a con. I can only think that the glass of wine they serve must be around £9.00 a glass.

Whilst the food was ok this was not a pleasant eating experience because the place is tiny.
