Spent my birthday evening here with my sister ----- a great spot, great food, great wine, and great service --- the host could not of been nicer. All around a wonderful evening, we had such a fun time. Mr Chow does not disappoint. I had been to their Miami location, and was eager to see how their NYC location compared. They were both phenomenal!

Dinner is a bit over rated. Very expensive ($500 4 guests).
We had a pre fix with 4 appetizers and 4 entrees. The chicken satay was very good and Me Chow’s noodles was excellent. Our standout entrees includes the Green Prawns, Crjspy Duck with pancakes. We found the signature dish Ma Mignon over rated and not to our liking. For a special occasion we’d return for drinks and appetizers only.

Great Chinese food. There is a crispy duck option as well as peking duck that goes with pancakes. Good selection of dishes and very similar to the good Chinese food you get in London.

Little disappointed in some of the food honestly. We were recommended the crispy beef by our waiter and it was more fried coating than beef. Pretty disappointing for the reputation of the restaurant and the high quality we expected for the price. We also had the sea bass which was pretty good! For appetizers we did the spare ribs and shrimp rolls. Those two were also pretty good. Nothing was as spectacular as we had hope or experienced before at a different location though.

Much too overpriced. Had been years ago and it was lovely but I guess I forgot how ridiculously priced it was for Chinese food! By no means worth it!

I have never had a bad experience at Mr. Chow, and this evening was a true testament to that! We had the best service with wonderful food that created a perfect evening I'll always be able to cherish. If you don't order the duck, you are missing out! Thank you for always providing the best experience and most delicious meal!

Guess MR CHOW is a classic already, Restaurant looks like in a time back, but very nice... food is always great and the service is very good. We had a great experience the moment we came in till we left - a bit on the expensive side, but what is not expensive in NY. I really can recommend this Restaurant, in my opinion the "Best" of the MR CHOWS Restaurants. Enjoy.

Restaurant bruant et cher. Trop surfait. Et finalement dans l’assiette vraiment pas bon. On nous a ramené un canard froid avec des pancake frois et finalement il n’y avait que le gout de la sauve. Je ne comprend vraiment pas le succes de cet etablissement!

Wow, Mr. Chow. What impeccable service. That alone makes it worth going. The food is very good, but the portions are small for a Chinese restaurant. We had a variety of menu items and enjoyed them all. The shocker is the price. $20 for a cup of soup. It’s easy to spend $100 per person not including drinks. This is the most expensive Chinese food ever. The place was packed to the gills and very loud. Ambience is nice. If your not on a budget I recommend giving Mr. Chow a try.
