Never disappointed. Best Chinese food we have had in the area. We always enjoy the chow Mein and chicken balls

While the rice and chicken balls are similar to most Chinese restaurants in the region (which by far has some of the best Chinese food in the province), the taste and crunchy shell of Joe Chow's egg rolls are miles above the rest. I would hands down recommend them and getting more than one.

Best Chinese food since moving to Nova Scotia in 2014. We live in Antigonish and have tried everywhere between New Glasgow and Port Hawkesbury. EVEN BETTER THAN MINGS which was our favourite. Prices r very reasonable too. A lunch special for $6.99

We checked this place out and loved the food. The new owners are a young, super friendly couple. He's the cook, and a great one at that. She is a quiet, happy lady who seems to do all the extras. I hope they find great success in their new adventure. Joe Chow's is a small diner like place with a... More
