Have been visiting Chow for many years now and it's never disappointed. The food is so fresh and vibrant, just delicious! Lots of choice of different flavours. The cocktails are also incredible, with 2 4 1 cocktails on Wednesday and Saturdays.

The food is fantastic and I love how you get to share meals. There are so many delicious and exotic dishes, and the ambience compliments it perfectly. Friendly and fast service too.

This cafe/ restaurant is very busy and a crowd favourite in central Wellington. The food selection is great and the tapas style is very good and well sized. The quality is very good and service is crisp and efficient. A favourite we'd happily return to.

Fabulous food, super friendly staff and great decor. We really enjoyed our early Mother's Day dinner, especially the 2 for 1 cocktails. Our 7 year old was very impressed with the range of non-alcoholic cocktails too! And to top the night off, our waiter saved us a table next door at The Library for dessert. Will be back!

A nice meal with lovely vegetarian dim sum options. We are vegetarian. We also tried their jungle curry. It was not a jungle curry I know of but it was nice. Love their plum cocktails (plum wine, sake and black Doris plums) - my highlight of the evening.

The menu is extensive and enticing and was delicious. We were a group of 8 and ordered many different dishes to share. What a treat. And the 2 for 1 cocktails were much appreciated as well. Staff really looked after us.

Amazing food. Quick tasty. Took my parents who had never been before and they loved it. Waitress couldhave smiled a bit more but maybe she was having a bad day.

When hosting English visitors for lunch we looked for a place that would be sure to please all. Chow fits that bill perfectly. The "Asian Tapas" style dining is perfect - allowing us to select a range of dishes that were bound to please. No dish disappointed and we left satisfied.
