It was a good change to have dinner there, and the prices are fair, although the quality was not what you would get in Los Angeles or San Francisco. The sources for the dishes we had were all the same, and the portions were average, and a little on the small side.The fried noodles was not the typical type one would expect in a good chinese restaurant.

After two weeks of Italian food (which we love but needed a reprieve) we decided to try finding some Asian cuisine near our hotel. Mr. Chow hit the spot. The service was good, the food came out very fast and it was very reasonably priced. It is similar to the take out we get back home, which is just what we were looking for. Had the sweet and sour pork, fried rice, chicken with bamboo shoots, and spring rolls with some tea. Love the spicy side sauce!

Having had my fill of the typical starch heavy Italian food, Mr. Chow's was a welcome change. The outside of the restaurant is easy to miss, but inside it is nice enough. The dining room is down a hall, some stairs and around a corner. It is a large round-ish room with no windows; it must be in the center of the building. I ordered beef and peppers, which was mild (red bell pepper, not spicy), and my father ordered an entire sea bass sauteed in soy sauce. My beef was tender and the peppers still had a little chew to them, not overcooked and slimy. The sea bass presentation was excellent and tasted good and very moist. The hot tea was served in a traditional Chinese type kettle and must have been steeped in that same kettle, as it was full of the green tea leaves. Unaccustomed to leaves in our tea, we were a bit turned off by this, however the tea was very smooth tasting, not at all bitter.

If you're looking to take a break from pizza and pasta, Mr. Chow's gets my recommendation!

We ordered take out and the food was good. It took a little while to come but we appreciated that they were open and they were cordial. The food was a nice departure from the usual fare during our trip to Italy.

A little bowl of rice 3 euro, a small pot of tea 5 euro, ridiculous price. The food was average. I won't recommend it to anyone.
