We always get the house special fried rice and our boys love the lo mein noodles with beef. Service was great and the atmosphere is always pleasant. This is a nice little sit down Chinese Restaurant, not a buffet style restaurant.

House of CHow consistently serves high quality CHinese food. I live that they have a diverse menu including quite a few options that are more "traditional" Chinese and less Americanized. I think it is also one of nicest sit-down Chinese places in town; decent wine selection and some yummy hot teas.

We had lunch here a week ago. We frequent this restaurant from time to time. Most of the time food is pretty good. Usually we come for dinner. Our lunch was a disappointment today. Our spring rolls were frozen in the middle and had to be sent back. The ice tea was a powder mix which is yuck. Sent that... More

Tucked away in a strip mall, little outside indicates the intimate setting within. In its 34th year, it clearly must be doing something right! Service is good and quality and quantity of food is better than expected. First rate dining!

First time trying this Chinese restaurant. We will be going back! Excellent service and excellent food. Plus lots of food with dinner order..we all took home food! Springfield style cashew chicken is as good as original we ate years ago in Springfield, Mo. Stir fry cashew chicken with plum sauce was very good. Children tried two other dishes...all with success.... More

We get take out pretty often and also occasionally eat inside. They have a good menu variety but not overwhelming. Portions are generous - with takeout you can 2 or 3 platefuls from one order. Lo mein noodles are good although a little too oily. Plain white rice is excellent while fried rice doesn't add much. Meats, poultry, and fish... More

Place is tuck away a strip shopping area along Stadium drive. Atmosphere is quite and clean. Started with a pot of chrysanthemum tea, came in a large pot over a flame that kept it warm and steeping. Very good tea. Appetizer of hot sour soup and fried pork dumplings. Soup was tasty with lots of veggies and great broth. Dumplings... More
