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.

I would not recommend this place to anyone who’s looking for a fine dining experience.

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 go to both the malibu and Beverly Hills locations. This one is quieter and mellow with just as good food. The manager Anessa is super sweet and takes wonderful care of us.

It was a perfect night in Malibu for some Chow- and the food and service were the best we’ve ever had at this remote Chinese restaurant in a high end shopping center in Malibu. The stars were out, the stars (well, a few of them) were there too, and there was nothing to spoil the view. Incredible spare ribs, great bar, try the duck and definitely make your own special menu.

Caution - this is for the 1%ers, but still less expensive and less aggressive than Nobu.

Great way to experience the country village life of the ‘Bu

I have eaten at Mr. Chow in Miami and in Las Vegas… Often tell my friends that Mr. chow is my favorite restaurant in the US… I travel internationally quite extensively and have dined in some wonderful restaurants. I was disappointed in Mr. chow Malibu and cannot recommend it. I created high expectations for my guests. The duck was very dry… The Xiao Long Bao was also dry ( not soupy inside) The squid ink noodles were way overcooked. It was a slow night there and we had a party of 7. With three very large men and four slight Asians… I pointed out to the hostess that the round table was quite small for the size of our party… She said in quite a dismissive way, that the table “would do” and we wouldn’t have a problem. At the time of our 730 reservation on a Monday night there was only one other table seated… We could’ve been moved just about anywhere. Through the course of our to our meal there were a total of three other tables sat. We spilled the one glass of wine and we’re constantly shuffling glasses and entrées to make room… Just not a comfortable table for the size of our party.

The food was pretty aunthenic, but similar dishes could be found at an average inexpensive restaurant in China. I would not say the quality at Mr. Chow is any higher. The service was also not great.

The food and service were outstanding. Having eaten at the Mr. Chow in NYC, I can say the service was just as good. The food was also of the same quality. We had the duck and everything was perfect. I was worried after having read some of the reviews of this location. But we found it to be a fabulous experience!!

A place way past it's prime. We spent $200 for two people with two drinks for bad Chinese food. The service was fine but the prices are ridiculous and the food is mediocre at best. Avoid!

Me Chow has very a nice Chinese menu and the service and setting are great. HOWEVER, the prices are absolutely outrageous! $41 for a small a la carte plate of what is essentially orange chicken?! $17.50 for a bowl of steamed rice! The tab for my family of four was $340 before tip. This was for four appetizers and three entrees. My wife had one glass of wine and I had one beer. Crucifyingly expensive for food that is marginally superior to what we would get at PF Chang's. If you want a nice dinner in the Country Mart, I would stick with one of the other options if you care at all about value for money.

We went there from my husband's birthday and had a great meal. We let the waiter pick the dishes for us and were not disappointed. Favorites were the spareribs and the chicken.
