Went to Mr. Chow for my son’s 27th birthday dinner. To begin, we were shocked that the place was almost empty, it’s tucked back in the far corner of Cross Creek, that didn’t bother us but it felt odd to be one of only three tables. The Maitre’d was wonderful, she was very polite and accommodating as were our servers. The maitre’d also helped us with the menu and made helpful suggestions. Following her advice we ordered the lobster shumai (marginal) and the lettuce cups with chicken (those were good) to start followed by the beef in some sauce (very tasty and tender), the sweet and sour shrimp (good) and the shrimp fried rice (no taste, practically just white rice with a touch of vegetable, no soy sauce or seasoning). They also brought out some green beans in a sweet sauce that were really nice. Our drinks were good though VERY weak, that didn’t bother us since we were driving but could bother someone looking for a real cocktail. Our dinner ended with a slice of chocolate cake with a candle to celebrate his night. (nice gesture yet the cake was very dry). All in all this Mr. Chow lives up to the reputation of the others of being in beautiful locations, with little to back it up. In summary:
Pros-Beautiful decor, (except for the stained carpet) and Great staff.
Cons-Fair food, weak drinks and high prices.
First time trying the Malibu location. This dining experience was truly divine. All the staff go above and beyond to ensure the utmost luxury comfort. I definitely will be dining here again.
Great service; attentive but not pushy; food perfect
Food was as good as it gets. Also, EXCELLENT chef show in dining room on noodle preparation Outstanding
the bartender was superb. Sent me my fav drink without my asking!!
Expensive and pretentious for supbar food.
The music played was too loud.
I would not recommend this place to anyone who’s looking for a fine dining experience.
Fantastic as always love it especially in the BU!
Sweet and sour chicken
Small portions with wildly out of proportion prices. Total joke.
Will not eat there again
This was truly the worst meal I have ever had. I thought it was unusual on a Sat night that it was empty,,but now I know why. The food was terrible. I had been to another Mr Chows in the past and it was fine. Everyone thought it was horrible and felt bad after.
We enjoyed our meal, but it was seriously overpriced.
