    Cool idea, tasted good... but the meat option turns into leather when cooked. Not sure what the type of meat was, I wasnt expecting filet of course, but definitely stick to the chicken!

    My family used to eat here regularly. The food is decent, but the service just got worse over time. There were also issues with cleanliness, so we stopped going. After a year away, we returned last week to give it another chance. After the service we received, we will probably never return. It is no fun at eat at a restaurant and watch your waitress sit at the bar, playing on her cell phone while you need something. It took us over an hour to eat dinner, and there were no more than 12 other customers in the restaurant. Our waitress seemed angry that we were there, as if we had interrupted her personal time. This restaurant has so much potential but it is woefully mismanaged. This prices are also too high for the product you receive.

    Food was OK. It's nice to pick your own items, but the beef was tough and chewy. Often the food is overcooked. We had an email coupon, because it was Memorial Day and they obviously (and accurately) anticipated a slim lunch crowd; at first the server said each of us must have our own coupon, but she then allowed us all to use it without me having to forward a copy to each member of our party. Noise level is always too high, particularly the recorded music. We considered inviting friends to meet our family there, but decided against it knowing that we couldn't carry on a conversation without shouting.

    My two favorite friends in the whole world had the Big Chow experience and we thought it was a nice place with good food! For a Friday night it was not busy at all we really didn't need to make a reservation. Although when I received my calamari as an appetizer they were basically cold I still had a nice experience at this establishment.

    This restaurant is an interactive food experience where every patron gets to create their own dish. And if you've got the room for it, you can try multiple recipes on the same visit (I only managed one. On next visit I wil make a much smaller serving so I can try multiple dishes).

    This was my first time going, though my partner had been to the restaurant once several years ago. We went together with his brother. Seeing as it was a Tuesday evening there were other patrons, but not so many that it was crowded. There are many wonderful options for the stirfry bar, whether you want to keep it safe or experiment and try something new, and while speaking with the waiter, we found that they rotate the selection regularly so chances are good that when you go in next time you'll find something new to try. And since the stirfry bar is all-you-can-eat, it's easy to make several small bowls for experimentation. The staff was more than willing to help with any questions first time visitors had, which we had a few.

    Overall the restaurant was a good choice...my only comment is: if you are having a meeting, you would want to request to seated away from the kitchen, as there is much pots banging happening...so you level of hearing would be impacted. Also, if you are not familiar w/ the location in the Galleria it can be a challenge.

    This stir fry joint rocks. Excellent service, excellent selection, great sauces! I was impressed with how quickly they cooked and served everything. They also now have all-you-can-eat sushi. Not the best sushi in the world, but it's pretty darned good. And a great value for the money. So worth getting lost for 15 minutes to find it :) I would happily recommend this place anytime!

    Great concept in dining. Our waiter, while attentive at the onset of our meal, became non-existent after initial introduction. No one came around to refill our "bottomless" drinks. We had to go and ask someone else for our bill. Greeters at door were greet-less. Food was good and quickly served by kitchen wait staff but we felt it was overpriced for a Saturday lunch.

    Great food and even better service. Not so great manager on duty who refused to honor the offer that GM Paul had made to me after I made my reservation. I was assured that I would receive my complimentary birthday dinner. I have been a loyal customer for years, having dined at the original Chow Baby on Howell Mill countless times since the first day they opened, and countless times at the Big Chow Grill,as well. I may have to think long and hard before I eat there again.

    Reservation was acknowledged and we were seated on time while walkins had a 20 minute wait. Waiter was very attentive and friendly. The food was plentiful and prepared quickly. I had a few extraneous veggies that I didn't pick show up in my stir fry, but otherwise no complaints about the food. The only major con was that the music was way too loud. We were a small group of 6 and it was very difficult to hear anyone besides those directly next to you.
