Commercial, glitzy & frighteningly expensive, Mr Chow has been selling blinged-up Beijing food to Knightsbridge glitterati, supermodels, screen idols & other famous faces since 1968. With branches in Beverley Hills, Las Vegas, New York & Miami, the London original wants to be famed for its closely guarded signature recipes – as well as its ostentatious hand-pulled noodle displays & original artwork from the likes of Andy Warhol & Peter Blake. Executive chef John Ng’s food is generally on the money (glazed prawns with walnuts have been singled out for particular praise), but most readers’ verdicts range from disappointment to horror at the lack of atmosphere & the ‘appalling service’. Still, with more than 40 years’ trading under its belt, this glamorous, jet-setting original must be doing something right.
