Came for a group dinner with friends. Good for sharing plates and lots of drink options. Some meals were amazing but other dishes were not as good.

I've eaten here twice and can't wait to go back! On both occasions the service was great, and the food was amazing! Came out quickly and tasted great! I've been once as part of a large group and got the set menu (which was incredible value, there was a huge variety in the many dishes that are provided to the... More

We read a review as a popular place for locals so we went there for dinner. I have to say; we get alot of sensational asian street food in Auckland so we know what we like and it was a bit hit and miss here. The duck lettuce cups were deliscious, the dumplings were odd; strange aromatic flavour/s, the steamed... More

So glad we took Tripadvisors advice and checked this place out. Our server was a lovely UK guy who couldn't do enough for us. Cocktails and drinks were served fast and were delicious. We had an assortment of dishes, we hadn't had any Asian while we'd been on holidays, so we were keen to try lots - they were all... More

Pleasant setting and a wide range of options on the menu. The staff are fairly attentive and to be honest I want to like the place more than I do - just can't put my finger on why not!

Clearly this restaurant is popular, however in all the times I've visited I can't work out why. The food is alway average, the wait times are usually around 45 minutes plus just to get a table. Don't get me wrong the food is okay, but everything on the menu is spicy even if it doesn't say it is! The saving... More

Chow on a Saturday is my favourite place. The food is fantastic (the new seared tuna is delicious) and the 2 for 1 cocktails makes a quick dinner a long night.

Chow is always delicious. I think I've tried just about everything on the menu over the years and the food is always fresh and tasty. It's my go to place with a group of friends, especially on Monday 2-for-1 which is great value. Service here is always friendly and pretty quick, even on the busier nights.
