Stopped in for dinner at Chow early on a Sunday evening and landed a table right away. There is a good selection to choose from and you have options in the portion size. My spinach salad was very tasty and paired well with the Manhattan clam chowder soup of the day. The dressing on the salad was savory and the golden beets very tasty. My other half had a BLT and obviously enjoyed wolfing it down. Chow also has a small inside marketplace to pick up prepared dishes to take home. Parking is plentiful early evening although it is a drag to have parking meters in effect until 8:00 pm, 7 days a week!

We had the Linguini with seafood and the Smiling Noodles of chicken. Both were hot and delicious after arriving home about 10 minutes later.
The Linguini was stuffed with shellfish and other seafood items. You do not go away hungry from this meal.
The smiling noodles are so good in the spicy-ginger-garlic-curry sauce!
Both noodles were very fresh.
2nd time here and the meal the first time was just as good.
Highly recommend for anyone in the Lafayette area.

Fun place with clean food. Almost all dishes are excellent. A bit noisy and sometimes cramped if you eat indoors otherwise a 5.

Chow's restaurant in Lafayette has excellent food. A large dining room and a small patio. Friendly staff. Healthy fresh ingredients, prepared well. We usually go for a traditional egg breakfast but lunch is good too. There are two other Chow restaurants in San Francisco, on church street off market (I've been there several times) and one by golden gate park, also excellent.
