Loved the atmosphere of this place. The decor was very cool with retro furniture and it is attached to The Library a super cool bar next door owned by the same company. Where the experience was let down was in the food which looked and sounded great but was very average in flavour and texture. Also the service was intrusive... More

Food was great, but when asked to make drinks not on the menu, it seemed a huge deal from our waiter's perspective. They also asked us to leave or move to another table despite us still regularly ordering drinks and 4 empty tables of the same size visible from where we sat. Clearly didn't want us to stick around and... More

Our first visit to Wellington, we said to all our friends, "where do we eat out"? They all said Chow and now I know why. Rated highly by everyone else, rated highly by us. Not easily pleased but this blew us away. Great friendly and highly attentive staff, stunning food and 2 for 1 Cocktails was a winner. Awesome night... More

We took my 91-year-old step-father to Chow for a birthday lunch. Every staff member looked after us really well and with consideration! He enjoyed his lunch and was pleased with the lunch special - not being overwhelmed with choice. And we enjoyed the excellent price!

I always love visiting Chow. Our family have been patronising since you first opened - we followed on from your previous rest. in Tory St - the old butcher shop - Castro's. The food is consistently amazing and staff terrific. Keep it up

Food in Chow are so tasty and yummy. Noodle soup portions could have been a bit bigger as well as cheaper.

Great plates of tasty little morsels. We probably over order. So would recommend ordering a few small plates, eat, relax and then order more if you need to. Highly recommended

Our hotel suggested Chow. We were seated next to a couple and their food looked wonderful. We asked what they had and ordered a few of the same items. We had the duck lettuce wraps, fried chicken pieces and pork & mushroom pot stickers. Our sever suggested the two special cocktails for one so we ordered that also. These small... More

This place was recommended to us by someone who lives here in Wellington as a place for good vegetarian options. It's a great casual place for large groups or intimate couples. Good food, fast service, imaginative dishes. I had a curry, which was good and spicy, and my partner had the sesame tuna, which he highly enjoyed. We also shared... More
