Chow never disappoints. I am a regular for lunch and recently had dinner. It’s amazing that such a busy restaurant has such an amazing service. Very little wait time from ordering to getting meals. I have coeliac disease and have never been cross contaminated.

A taste of South East Asia with a focus on fresh, local produce. Think big steaming bowls of pho & laska's, whole coconuts, bubble teas cocktails, Asian beers, sake bombs, fresh colorful dishes, healthy and tasty, lighthearted and most of all FUN!
