I'd been to the Lafayette Chow several times, and enjoyed the food, but not so much the ambience---the tables seemed overly crowded together, with a noise level so high you could not be heard. I decided to give the Danville Chow a try...and was NOT impressed! I will say, the ambience was fine. It was surpsingly busy for lunch on a Monday, and a bit loud, but nothing like the other one! I can't complain about the service...although our server tried a bit too hard to make jokes that he'd obviously rehearssed and used multiple times already. The food, however, was NASTY. Let me say, I am not very picky about food. (I'm the type that thinks airline food is ok!) I would say this food was a step below airline food. I ordered a Caesar salad, which was made out of wilted lettuce that looked like it had been sitting out for a while. The dressing was virtually flavorless. I did not see any signs of the cheese that was supposed to be on the salad, and there were two "croutons" that were hard as rocks, you couldn't even cut into them. My entree was linguine with clams, in what was supposed to be a butter/wine type sauce. It arrived lukewarm, looking like last night's leftovers that didn't get heated up properly. The sauce was a salty but otherwise tasteless gross, congealed brown 'something' that bore no resemblance to butter or anything at all like it. The clams didn't seem fresh and didn't taste very good either. Overall, it was a really unpleasant tasting meal. I had really wanted to like this place, but don't think I'll be going back. Unfortunately, looking at the other reviews, it doesn't sound like my experience was unusual. Frankly, I just don't understand why so many people keep going to this place!
