SquareMeal Review of Mr Chow

bronze award


Like its evergreen septuagenarian owner, Michael Chow, this Knightsbridge institution seems to defy the sands of time. Almost 50 years down the line, it’s as handsome and elegant as ever with its chrome lampshades, monochrome colour schemes and artwork from the likes of Peter Blake. The restaurant’s rather sexy old-school demeanour lures in rich ‘new Knightsbridge’ types and corporate wallets – none of whom wince at the £30 price tag for a dish of citrus-flavoured crispy beef. The reason? When it comes to Chinese comfort food, few places can deliver quite like Mr Chow. There’s hardly a dish we don’t adore, from the sticky glazed prawns to lettuce wraps of minced spiced chicken, mixed seafood awash in a gooey white wine sauce, and – of course – the dessert trolley. Chow’s original vision of Chinese food served by Italian waiters happily lives on, epitomised by a charming maître d'.

I took a client here for a work lunch last week and came away with very mixed views. We had the fixed price menu; a starter and main course each for £24. The food was very good (prawns with walnuts and the fried okra, followed by crispy fried beef and salt and pepper chicken) and portions were very large – there were a lot of leftovers. We had two beers, a coke and a tomato juice and the bill was £75. However there was no atmosphere at lunch; only 2 other tables were taken downstairs and the whole upstairs was empty. The service was APPALLING. Inspite of the restaurant being practically empty our waiter actually huffed every time we asked for a drink or for plates to be cleared, and our food was slammed down on the table. It felt like he was doing us a favour by doing his job. I think the service was probably the rudest I have ever encountered. I would never go back here.
