    It’s not very big part of a strip mall. Inside it’s very nice. The food was great the service could use some improvement.

    The food is very good and the prices are great. The only issue we had were the drinks. They have a mediocre selection of wines and only off brand tequila and rum. If you like to accompany your dinner with drinks or a good bottle of wine, this is not the place. If you are just looking for a no frills good dinner, then make a reservation.

    KOW was a pleasant surprise. So much variety for my husbands birthday dinner with our children ( ranging from 20 to 8 y/o). Food presentation and taste was great. Conscious of food allergies when we needed help with menu choices. Great dessert choices and coffee. Will definitely recommend and return.

    Broad array of food choices on the menu, what KOW calls Asian, American, African and European selections. Most everything we ordered tasted unconventional; some hits and misses but very unique takes on most dishes. Lots of appetizer choices. I didn't try it but the Wok Crunchy Shrimp appetizer was a big hit. Gnocchi appetizer was good though perhaps overpowered by the strong cheeses. We had a very good waiter, Saverio, who was very helpful pointing out some of the different takes the restaurant has on some dishes: The French onion soup being a perfect example where the cheese is served outside the soup and is seemingly fused to a thin layer of bread below.

    The food portions are very generous, our waiter was so attentive and patient with our big group. Food was well seasoned and the menu had lots of delicious options that would be perfect for a big party. For 6 of us with 2 appetizers and 3 desserts it came out to $450 which I think is great for a special occasion.

    We did have to wait about 40 mins or so before they could accommodate our reservation, because of reserved tables. However, the food, the drinks, the service all made up for it. A bit on the smaller side so I understand where the hold up was. We went from a res of 3 to 6 so I get it. The Hoisen chicken wings are Godlike, the Sweet Chilli wings up next! Then shrimp! The freaking Cocktails are Amazing. Omg. We tried them all damn near because the cocktail price is that good too. Our server was kind and sweet. We will most definitely be back!

    Nice place, pleasant staff, lots of variety on the menu. It wasn’t terrible, but everything we had was just too much. The tostones were good, but covered in sauce. The Caesar salad - inedible, just swimming in dressing. The Thai donuts, good after I wiped off all the condensed milk they were sitting in. All these things are good in small quantities. Otherwise, you’re just eating sauce. That’s what it felt like. I would eat there again and try different things, but now I know to ask for any sauce/dressing on the side. Less is more. Oh, and there was a little hair in the tostones. Next time I think I’ll just have a drink and the octopus. If these aren’t good, then I’ll just keep trying different places in the area. Good luck!

    We went on a Thursday night during Miami Spice month. The MS menu was very diverse with plenty of options for all three categories. Everything was delicious and there was plenty of food left over. The service was very good.

    This is our 4th time in this place and this is the first time we did not feel good, server took our order and the brought all the food almost at the same time, I know this is a fancy place but it is not a cheap one either, there is rules in gastronomy were you bring beverages first then the appetizer and then the main, the main was cold, for sure wont come back again

    We've been here, the menu has SO MANY options, and everything we've tried so far has been so delicious. During our two visits, we've tried the tostones, which in my opinion are always a hit and the saltado from the America's menu. The Galician Octopus, Crab Ravioli, Lobster Ravioli, KOW style Lasagna from the European menu. The sweet chili wings, Surf and Turf Ramen (the less popular amongst what we've tried) from the Asia menu. The Piripiri Spicy pork Ribs ( DEFINITE MUST HAVE) from the African menu. Tuna Tartare was amazing. Their drinks and desserts were great as well* (can't remember which ones specifically l). I would love to continue back until I can proudly say I've tasted everything on the menu!

    2nd time going because we love the food. But the service is still horrible. I’m not sure why they don’t come back to the table to check on you and make sure you don’t need anything else. But when the server needs you to pay they leave the bill quick and come back quick.

    Place is ok. My husband order the wok rice with shrimp he only had one shrimp. The server only came to take our order someone else brought our food. The server never came to the table to ask how everything was or if we needed anything. She was busy watching the miss America that was on. She came when we were done and ask if I needed a box and the went to wait on someone else. Another server came and ask if I needed a box and gave it to me. She didn’t even bring the check at the end. Service from her was super bad. I’m glad they had others to pick up her slack.
