We shared oysters with lemongrass and galangal for the entree which were delicious. I had red curry duck for the main course which was lndian style which was also delicious. This restuarant provides interesting combinations for familar dishes with variations served with large portions. I definitely would like to visit Chow! again.

My review is not for the food (which is great).
But the fantastic range of cocktails and wine available which tasted and were presented fantastically.

Thank Olivia J

I had the cold rolls and spring rolls for entrée, mouth watering delicious, simply amazing.
for main I had the chicken laksa, this was below ordinary, I think they must have forgot the coconut milk and only had very minimal chicken. Do not recommend to eat this meal.
my friend had the salad, was told that there was NO garlic and the chef was told to remove the garlic but this had so much garlic it wasn't funny. It also tasted that it had a whole coriander bush in it.
Wont be dining here again, however last time I dined her it was fabulous. Perhaps it was the chef on the night that I went that really mucked the food.

We are glad you enjoyed your entrée but am sorry that you were not happy with the mains, there must have been some kind of miscommunication in the kitchen regarding your salad.

We do hope that you will come back and give us a chance to improve your opinion of us.

Thanks again

Overall Chow is a nice place for a meal, nice and relaxing atmosphere, price is not over the top, but food and services are average.

Great location for a fantastic Asian bite at Darwin's waterfront. Decor is funky and current, enjoyed the spring rolls in particular.

If you loved the Traditional Springrolls you should try our Green Rice Flake Springrolls. They are Pork Prawn and Calamari Springrolls which are coated in green rice flakes. This gives them an amazingly crunchy texture. I highly recommend them.

We do hope to see you again really soon.

Thanks again.
