“Relaxed, friendly service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Visited Chow for a late lunch and enjoyed the casual vibe and nice variety of food options: Asian noodles, Mexican fish tacos, etc. Everything was thoughtfully prepared and tasty.

Loved the food and the atmosphere. Ate here twice, in fact, over a recent four day stay in San Francisco.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

During our Urban Trek tour the six of us all wanted something different for lunch. Anton, our tour guide, selected Chow. We were seated in a pleasant patio area. Each of us ordered food to our liking and were all extremely satisfied.
If you are trying to please people with different appetites, Chow is the restaurant for you.

“Really REALLY Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

I came here for breakfast and brunch over my trip it was just so good! A must try drink is the Chai Baba Chai, sooo delicious. The restaurant is very homey and comfortable. The service could have been a little bit faster, but it was fine. Overall I had a very nice time!
