“will be back to order dinner”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

first time @ CHOW was for a work lunch, the staff were more than happy for us to pre-order meals so they arrived not long after we did and we did not have to clock watch.

the menu is varied & well priced.

will be back to try the dinner menu
nice setting would look quite pretty at night.

“Finally Darwin !!! Great atmosphere Great food”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Tuesday night dinner at Chow, what a treat. Coming from Melbourne we miss our weekly Vietnamese fix, we have finally found a new location for weekly Bun. Jump on board Darwin and visitors you won't be sorry, we loved it.

“Vietnamese Experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

A couple of girlfriends and myself decided to check out Chow! the new Vietnamese restaurant down at the waterfront last friday nite after hearing all the hype! to sum it up AMAZING!!
The outdoor setting is beautiful and relaxed and spaced out really well, the waiter was attentive and the service fast!
As im not a big eater i chose 3 "Small Plates" from the menu but two would of surffied with the generous portion size. The Mini Sliders and Spicy Salt quail a must!
After also having a small plate each my companions struggled through their main courses of Chicken hotpot and Bun Bo Xao as it was just too good to stop.
A big draw is the "Bubble Tea's" which were enjoyable as expected however if you want a real treat try their "Vietnamese Iced Coffee" i think these will be a big hit with territorians.
very affordable with our bill being $126 for 3 people including drinks!
cant wait to try them for lunch!

“New and refreshing”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

As an avid diner around Darwin I'm always looking for something different, the Asian inspired menu was fantastic, the pho and the rice noodle soup are now a favorite of mine, good portion sizes with value for money, as for the drinks the cocktails were fun and different. The decor has a very comfortable feel about it, also sitting at the bar to eat and watching the bar men sling drinks it's almost like dinner with a show. I found the staff to be quite friendly and willing to help with all of my annoying questions. Overall I really quite like this place, it has a very personal feel to it which will keep me coming back for more.
My experience was 'pho' king great.

“Delicious food and fantastic service”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

The food was well presented! My cousin and especially her daughter loves the crepe in there! The location was amazing for a romantic dinner ( great cocktail, fresh air)! And I really love the service and stuff here! She was very nice and friendly even though she has to serve for a number of table. Great decor in the restaurant! Amazing food!
