Mr Chow opened on Valentines Day 1968. Designed by Michael Chow, it remains one of the the most uniquely beautiful restaurants in London. The atmosphere is one of relaxed luxury with original works of art, lacquered walls and white marble floors. Mr Chow serves a combination of original,authentic Beijing recipes together with new innovative dishes, specialities such as Green Prawns, Ma Mignon and Mr Chow noodles were all created by our award winning chefs. Also on the menu is our superlative Beijing Duck and a variety of exciting vegetarian dishes. During the evening, as entertainment, a chef performs the skilful art of hand-pulled Beijing noodles. Known as an institution in London MR CHOW draws generations of the young and fashionable by serving consistently excellent food, prepared by executive chef John Wu and his team. "All of it impeccable, great, tasty, a triumph! That was a good meal to put it mildly" Michael Winner The Sunday Times.

After 15 years absence, I really was keen that Mr Chows hadn't changed and was still excellent. It is. Some new dishes and many classics. Service excellent.

Rude waiter, music was terrible, chairs were very uncomfortable and value was horrible, we could have dined at a two Michelin starred restaurant for the price.

We have heard A lot about Mr Chow, but was really disappointed with our experience starting with the menu ending with the food and bill!
Not worth the money we spent
But anyhow , we survived

The music was way too loud - like a club! The staff were helpful but the food was appalling had it been a low level Chinese restaurant, but for such a supposed high level it was just terrible and way over priced.

A long time Mr Chow fan, visiting the restaurant across the world, the service was a little off from previous dinners. That being said it was still good and the food was excellent as usual.

Nous connaissons ce restaurant depuis longtemps. Et ce soir nous avons choisi un menu dégustation. Mais la diversité n’eta Pas au rendez-vous et les saveurs non plus. Rien ne ne nous a été annoncé. Bref net le tout pour un prix exorbitant. C’est scandaleux.

Revisiting after a long gap.
Staff were very friendly, the food was mediocre and extremely expensive in comparison to other high end restaurants, unfortunately.

We were visiting London and came back to the spot my parents met 40 years ago. The food, service and entire experience were as special as always.

Incredible food. Was our first time in the London restaurant having eaten in New York and Las Vegas restaurants before (and we’re also big fans of the Philippe Chow chain). The menu is a little different to the US, as is the taste of the items which do appear on both US & U.K. menus, but that’s to be expected and it was still excellent. Smaller, intimate venue, but it makes for a nice ambience. Great service.

I would definitely not recommend even my enemies to come here. It was super small with a tiny spiral staircase which they didn’t bother themselves to put lifts or a normal stairs that doesn’t make people dizzy. It smelled like we were sitting in a trash can. And most importantly, their prices are very very verry expensive compared to the amount, taste and quality.

This restaurant positions itself as a high end offer. It is not. The decoration is drab and tired. The food innovative 40 years ago is no better, in some cases worse, than your local Chinese eateries. It is very expensive. Dinner for two was nearly £200 including only one glass of wine - no other alcohol. The toilets were grubby. Frankly this restaurant is a disgrace and a rip-off.
