Came here for a team brekkie. Good location along James Street in the Valley. Service was good Good was certainly not disappointing. Pricing of food is average for a restaurant located in that area so don't expect to pay cheap but it's going to blow the budget neither

My husband and I went for breakfast and we felt so welcomed by the staff upon entry, we were shown to our table and noticed how clean the café was. Poached eggs, freshly squeezed orange juice, brilliant coffee, actually the nicest coffee I have had in a while. My husband ordered eggs, bacon & mushrooms, and couldn't eat the sourdough... More

I have dined quite a bit at this restaurant over the past few years and its been sometime now since we have been for dinner. We went on a Tuesday night - it was not busy and it was a pretty meh experience. My partner ordered the pork belly which we have eaten on several occasions here in different reincarnations.... More

This is a regular breakfast stop for us and each time I go I make sure to try a different thing on the menu - everything I've tried is so well done! Whether you like sweet or savory, the menu has you covered. Coffee is great as are the fresh juices. I can't speak for anything other than the breakfasts... More

We went here for lunch based on the interesting menu and a walk by. It was indeed very tasty and generally healthy. We shared a green papaya salad (a toned down version for more western palates), which was very nice. My wife has the chicken cooked in coconut and lychee (a very good sized salad). I had the mini pork... More

Wow, we were impressed, a busy Sunday morning and the Chow House delivered on all accounts. The menu was extensive and varied, our coffee came quickly and was delicious. The breakfast burritos were so good packed with flavour and taste, one person had the pancakes and we were all envious, looked amazing in a small cast iron pot, caramelised banana,... More
