Great Chinese – I like Mr Chow, The food is always up to par and they have great ambience. I highly recommend the satays in peanut sauce, delicious
Worst SERVICE EVER- – The food and the atmosphere was top of the line but the servers were disrespectful and rude. We went with a group of ten successful young entrepreneurs that has a refined interest in food. We felt our waiter was the rudest person we ever encounter at a restaurant. It seems like if he was trying to sell the menu to us like a “Bad Car Salesman”, he cut us off when we wanted to place our orders, and talk to us as if we were irrelevant. We even waited over 30 minutes to receive our drinks, in which they forgot and we had to acquire someone else to bring it. And they treated us as if we had insignificant funds to pay for our meals. The waiter & servers always brought up the topic of price like as if I could not see that the glass of Merlot that I desired was not $22. Plus, at night it gets very noisy. I would never go back there!
Are the bad reviewers serious? – I honestly don't know how someone could not love this place, its amazing.Everything is delicious, service is great and the food is so fresh. Love the decor as well. I am very picky but this is my favorite restaurant in the city!
Horrible – First of all our waiter was rude and pushy. He almost chastised my friend for ordering the same thing as me because he insisted that we all order different items from the menu. The decor is more tacky than chic to me, the food had absolutely NO flavor unless you take into consideration the one flavor of disgusting incorporated in the chicken satay and it's nasty sauce. Lastly, it was very expensive for nothing special. I would choose Nobu or Tao over Mr Chow any day. In fact I would choose the corner store chinese place by my house for 8 bucks over this place any day.
Don't go to this crappy place.
Utterly and Completely Disgusting – I'm still kind of speechless. Mr. Chow's in Tribeca is... it's... I don't really have words for it.
Wait. Yes I do. Foul. Inedible. A joke. Rancid. A cosmic ripoff.
Are you kidding me?
This place is designed - it actually REVELS in - ripping off tourists and tasteless human beings. From the moment they tricked us into ordering $10 bottles of bottled water to the last disgusting bites of "complimentary" cake for desert, Mr. Chow's Tribeca was nauseating.
I don't want to relive the food by telling you what we ordered. Every single item was vile. Embarrassingly grotesque. Every single item tasted, looked, smelled, and FELT awful.
I don't have much more to add. In these times, I would think people would have little desire to throw their money away on an "experience" like this. Because this "experience" is about disgusting food and fake "high end" service designed only to sell sell sell you.
If you enjoy eating "food" cooked by people who are laughing at your complete lack of taste, and being served by waitstaff who consider you a walking wallet and are smirking at you for just being there, then by all means, eat at Mr. Chow's.
Otherwise, PLEASE avoid Mr. Chow's Tribeca, and have an appealing, human and decent diniing experience in a place that actually cares.
Overpriced for "Chinese" food – I came for restaurant week, because I heard good things and it looked like such a trendy restaurant. The food was OK, not the best. For about 1/10th the price you can get portions 3 or 4 times the size that tastes a lot better in Chinatown.
WOW – wow, first visit here and what can i say, blown away food fresh light and tasty words cannot express how good,
starters amazing and main course even better, and sitting ouside on a warm evening even better
staff super friendly, cant wait to return..
if you are going to do anything do this
Overpriced Chinese – I love the interior of this place--it is sleek, modern, elegant, and thoughtful. The waitstaff, too, is incredibly (sometimes overly) friendly and solicitous. In fact, there are so many people assigned to service each table that it almost got confusing. The head waiter was eager to offer recommendations and favorites, they left no detail out, and were generally great. I thought the mid-evening display preparation of their house noodles was rather impressive of a show to put on, if a little distracting for a romantic dinner.
The food, however, was a different story. It was not bad, granted, but the huge disparity between its quality and its price made me raise my eyebrows on occasion. The appetizers were very good. I strongly recommend the sea-scallop, cooked to perfection and served on its shell in a nicely sour sauce. The buffalo was tender but really not spectacular. The duck was BAD--it tasted like leftover food from yesterday's party, reheated and recrisped. Generally, I would have given it five stars if I was reviewing the food of a solid, good Chinese take-out place, but certainly not a place where a dinner for two can run close to $300. My advice--if you want amazing food for less money, walk one block south on Hudson and treat yourself to a nice dinner at Nobu, it is certainly much better and worth the price.
Best dinner in NY – Just had to comment how wonderful the restaurant is.
My friends and I were just at Mr.Chow for dinner. Even though they had many people there all eager to get some of the renown Mr.Chow cuisine, the service was great. All people seemed to be satisfied, as much as I was. The restaurant in general is very aesthetically pleasant. But with the physical beauty comes inner beauty. The servers were all to-the-point. They gave us what we needed as soon as we asked. The chicken satay was good as usual, definitely check it out. All the food was amazing, even though the menu was prix fixed for a special Valentines night. <333 Along with the food was the vibrant dynamic of the place. The music suited well. Mr. Chow is definitely the place to go. Once you go, you will want to go back for every meal. CHECK IT OUT!
