The service at Chow was great but the food just lacked any depth of flavour. Many south east Asian dishes need the saltiness, sweetness or spice to bring out the true essence of the dish. What Chow serves is unfortunately just a little bland. It...probably suits a wide range of palates but if you are after a more authentic taste experience then I suggest a different choice.More

Chose Chow for dinner on our final night in Darwin. I ordered the Vegetarian Spring Rolls and the Vegetarian Fried Rice. The Spring Rolls were amazing but I have to say the Vegetarian Fried rice was a bit bland. There was nothing wrong with it...but after the taste sensation of the spring rolls I was just a bit disappointed. Atmosphere was nice, staff friendly and prompt. If you're notMore

Service was great. Food was very tasty but the kangkung dish was too large. We had chicken curry and kangkung. Chicken curry was very tasty. Could have been a little larger and the other fish a little smaller. Lol.

The food was good but service was terrible. I put it down to start of the season but it was chaotic. No one really knew what was going on. Sow to take our order with the result being we were rushed out at the end....Hopefully they will come right. The food was tasty when we did get it.More

We booked here as it was on the waterfront where we were staying and had good reviews. The food was all tasty, we had the pork belly pancakes, a beef with noodles to wrap in lettuce cups then the massaman curry, eggplant with pork and...xo and the pad Thai. The pad Thai lacked the wok smoke taste and was a bit mediocre but the other dishes were all good. The lychee martini’s were great and a welcome on a hot night.More

Great quality food and service. We were recommended to come here and try the Laksa. It was delicious. The food is super authentic and tastes like you’re in Thailand or Malaysia.

My friends and I visited the restaurant for dinner and were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. The food was delicious and every dish we ordered was amazing. Staff were very tentative and looked after us very well. We can't recommend enough the place. Restaurant...worth visiting.More
