We have patronized HoC since Amy Chow opened the doors in 1981. The reataurnt continues her excellent service and dining under her nephew James. I have always had nothing but great meals there. My two favorites are Beef Shezwan and Springfield, Mo Cashew Chicken. The sauce for this is sooooo close to Mr Leong's original in Springfield, Mo where we... More

I had the pineapple fried rice. Every bite was a new sensation of flavor. The menu is extensive, promising many more excellent dishes. Also, they feature a wide range of hot teas. All 3 of us enjoyed our meals.

We had lunch as we do once in awhile here. My stir fry chicken was way to salty! The biggest frustration we experienced here on occasion is lack of continuity of quality of food. Sometimes egg rolls are great and sometimes they are soggy or cold. When it's good it's great! The problem here is consistency! We would eat here... More

In town for Homecoming visit, went to House of Chow for dinner. Live piano entertainment, we were seated immediately. We had Tofu dish, beef tendon soup, and chicken dish. Plenty of authentic for hardcore chinese food fans, and milder dishes for more mainstream palates. Great attentive service. One of my best restaurant experiences!

I have lived in Columbia for a long time and I never ate here. It was my loss. My boss took me there for my birthday and I was very surprised when walking in. The atmosphere was very relaxed and our 2 waiters were outstanding. Very attentive without being interruptive . The food was very good . It has become... More

As good or better than Leongs Tea House in Spfld.Mo. I've waited almost fifteen years for this. Have eaten at/ requested this at every Asian restaurant for 100 miles in every direction, nobody's even came close. The Egg rolls are good too. Thank you!! House of Chow.

We always get the house special fried rice and our boys love the lo mein noodles with beef. Service was great and the atmosphere is always pleasant. This is a nice little sit down Chinese Restaurant, not a buffet style restaurant.

House of CHow consistently serves high quality CHinese food. I live that they have a diverse menu including quite a few options that are more "traditional" Chinese and less Americanized. I think it is also one of nicest sit-down Chinese places in town; decent wine selection and some yummy hot teas.

We had lunch here a week ago. We frequent this restaurant from time to time. Most of the time food is pretty good. Usually we come for dinner. Our lunch was a disappointment today. Our spring rolls were frozen in the middle and had to be sent back. The ice tea was a powder mix which is yuck. Sent that... More
