Ignore the complaints on Yelp-
Despite a lot of grousing online, we had a great experience at Mr. Chow. We arrived a bit early for a drink at the bar (the jalapeño cocktail was tasty but not very spicy). We were seated on time and although the tables are packed tightly and scene is noisy- it worked well and had a fun, energetic vibe. We ordered the semi-pre-fixed Peking duck tasting menu and found that everything we ordered was quite good. Highlights were the Ma Mignon, Drunken Fish, and the prawns. Wait staff was excellent, professional, but clearly trained to sell- be careful if you are on a budget. Plenty of celebs and Malibu fashion on display. The chef came out and put on a show of making noodles. All in all a very entertaining evening.

Mr Chows Gilt
food was delicious!!!!! They stuck all the guests with Gilt certificates along the back wall- not nice. There were many empty tables in the restaurant.

Alternative to Beverly Hills
Mr. Chow is famous in LA for its Beverly Hills location.Paparazzi are outside from open to close waiting for a glimpse of a celebrity. Their Malibu location is considerably more intimate and casual but with the same great attention to detail and service. The staff were very attentive and always had a smile or tidbit of information to dispense on the food or history of the Mr. Chow empire. Although I have had better Asian food in the past, the service and overall atmosphere elevated the experience. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Most memoriable service
Let me start by saying this place has probably the best service as far as I can remember. I've dined at many restaurant with exceptional service, but when asked to give a list of top 3, Mr. Chow Malibu will probably rank at No.2 - thanks to the host Zach (as appeared on the bill) We were there on a slow Monday night when there were two other parties. Food was on par with what they serve at their Beverly Hills location, but the atmosphere is totally different, at least when you're sitting outdoor.

We had an amazing time not only because the food was amazing but the experience wow. The staff was phenomenal from the time you sit down to the time we left. They were able to read what kind of guests we were. We were laughing and enjoying all the sights and smells the food and restaurant had to offer and the staff joined in giving us one of the best dining experienced I've had for a long time. I can't wait to return to try some other great foods. The prefix menu is the way to go and let the waiter take you through it and ask his opinion you won't be sorry.

Lunch not Brunch
I decided to take advantage of Dine LA and have the brunch special. Yummy yummy yummy! The food portions were enough to share and we got to try everything on the menu. Prawns were top notch. Chicken Joanna was ok, needed some salt. Ice cream, best chocolate ice cream I've ever tasted. Overall, great food with spectacular service!

hand made noodles
Do not miss the drunken fish, dumplings, green prawns, and HANDMADE NOODLES!
Service is so impeccable - both formal and friendly at the same time.
The all white interior makes for a special atmosphere and whether you are a Malibu regular or guest from out of town you will be glad to enjoy time with your small group eating family-style on the backlit white tables.

The food is so good! You have to experience it to believe it. I've loved Mr. Chow since the 70's and the Malibu location doesn't disappoint.

Food was great! Kept walking
Food was great! Kept walking by table lifting lid on dumplings while we were trying to talk & enjoy our 1st appetitizer. Very annoying, disrespectful, & pushy! Also mentioned to manager about the decor changes & he argued with me about the changes. Behind his back the hostess told my husband I was correct! He would have been better to keep his mouth shut rather than say something stupid! Fortunately food is good but personnel need some improvement!

Wonderful! I've seen some
Wonderful! I've seen some reviews around mentioning snobby or bad service, which is surprising. We were greeted warmly by every employee as we came in. We let them pick our food and were happy we did. Everything was absolutely delicious and the perfectly on-point service didn't falter oncer through the entire meal (I don't think I refilled my own sake glass sized tea cup once the whole meal). I appreciate the enthusiasm the employees had for the food and drinks.

Now we know why Mr. Chow is one of the best restaurants in the world.

Perfect Night in Malibu
What a great place this is, wow! We had been to Mr Chow Beverly Hills, and it was our first time at the Malibu Mart location for a romantic Saturday night dinner with my wife... and we will be back very soon for sure. Our exceptional experience started with the pleasant smiles of the bartenders at the front who make some killer cocktails, and continued with a delicious dinner, fantastic yet casual atmosphere (the center table light from underneath is a great touch), experienced and well-coordinated wait staff, and ended with a beautiful pink take-home bag for the desserts... I also own a fine dining restaurant, and was very impressed by Mr Chow Malibu!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always the same consistent amazing service. I love this restaurant and I definitely recommend Mr Chow in Malibu. Mr Chow has a very refine and friendly atmosphere. The manager Chris and his wonderful staff will make your evening very special.

Don't skip the crab!
We did the Mr Chow special, 2 people pick 2 starters and 2 main courses, includes veggies and rice. Starters were OK (dumplings no dipping sauce, chicken satay) main courses were Fabulous, dungeness crab with egg served in the shell, and green prawns, generous hunks of prawns. Mixed veggies fine. Brown rice was perfect. Service was amazing and added to the experience, overall very enjoyable and memorable, I will definitely return!

and while the prices are expensive, the service was excellent. You're made to feel special and fussed over.
