usually a wild night – I've only been here a handful of times the last 25 years, but they're all memorable - at least the early part of the nights. This is a place to get wasted and indulge yourself with a table full of friends. Get up and socialize with other wasted people in here, it's fun!
I can remember some b*tchy service that was hysterically funny and went perfectly with the atmosphere.
The food is NOT typical chinese please. When do you see hollandaise or whatever for satay? Don't trash this place cause it's not like your chinatown restaurant please. Frankly, I'd go for sushi or thai before chinatown anyhow, but I'm gonna remember Mr.Chow the next time I have friends visiting town.
WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE – I have never disliked a restaurant so much that I was compelled to write a review, but I really feel that it is necessary. I am an Asian studies PhD, with a concentration in Chinese language and culture and can tell you from the onset that the food is far from authentic. You can get food in Chinatown that is infinitely better in quality and incredibly cheaper. The appalling thing is, that the food wasn't just unauthentic, is was DISGUSTING. The presentation was unbearable and the flavors and "signature" dishes were repulsive. My husband and I have officially decided to refer to the place as "Mr. Dog Chow's" because the famous noodle dish was insipid and looked like noodles with a blob of purina dog chow on top. The waiter situation was also comment worthy. We had 20 different waiters who kept asking us the same questions, because neither one knew what was going on. To top it off, we weren't even asked how the food was and if we needed anything...a simple courtesy that I even get at my local pizza shop. I will never go back to this detestable, overpriced, repulsive, pathetic restaurant again. PLEASE TRUST THIS REVIEW.
Go For The Experience – Ordered about 4 different entrees and the food was very good but didn't really match the high price tag.
This would be a one time experience - as in, you would eat there for the experienc of going to Mr.Chow but this isn't the type of place to frequent a lot.
Crowded, rushed and a little snotty...but good for a fun date.
Always Awesome – We had a reservation and still waited 35 min for our table which is normal here. The service never disappoints. These guys are mind readers...they are on top of you from start to finish. Cuisine is well executed Beijing style and is always fresh and tasty. Always a stop for us when we go to NYC. Unfortunatley, service is not duplicated at the Miami outpost recently opened in W hotel on South Beach. Food is good and space is beautiful but waiters are terrible like most spots on SOBE.
Terrible Experience At Mr. Chow – Went to this place having read the reviews and could not believe how less than average and misleading this place is. Lot's of artificial colorings in food. Watch out.
BEST EVER – I highly recommend this place both for single dining, dates, or any family parties. They provide service to the utmost perfection; they are so helpful and kind, and they make sure that my boyfriend and I had a good time. I have gone to this place many times before ever since I was young, so to make sure that I arranged a good date. The food was delicious, you won't get any of those bizarre americanized "chinese" foods here. It's totally authentic and delightful.
Not your usual cheap Chinese take out! love MR. CHOW! – I love this place! It's not your usual cheap chinese take out! drank a whole lot of champagne last night and sat back while the captain ordered my favorite dishes. Try the Beijing Duck prefixe. They come up with the best courses! Can't wait to go back!
Spectacular – I was so hesitant about coming here after reading the negative reviews. No clue what they were about. I went there last night for my birthday. Food was spectacular and service was impeccable. Will definitely be back!
Smoke and Mirrors BS! – Very bland food, weird over attentive but improper service.
After stating that we were unsatisfied, the guy actually told us that we were "supposed" to not be full.
I would never go here again.
Awesone place and great food – I wanted to thank the staff of mr. chow, and I thought this was the best way. You guys are always accomodating and have welcomed me with warmth. I believe your restaurant have been around for so long for a reason. It is always good to see restaurants that last through think and thin. I tell you keep up the good work guys!!!
