Success! Thanks for posting your review of Chau Chow City Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

This is one of my fovorite hangouts

I just love this place! It has awsome food and reasonable prices, If you like authentic Chinese cuisine then you will find it here. They also have some Chinese-American dishes for the unadventurous. They have plenty of space and parking, and it's open till 3 AM! The seafood is so fresh, it's still swimming in one of the tanks when you place your order. They also have the game on in the evenings and karaoke upstairs ... view more

Adding Tips By Yourself?

I ordered a takeout and 3 days later found out that the restaurant overcharged my credit card 10% of the amount I agreed to pay. This is rediculous - so the restaurant ASSUMED that I should pay tips without my awareness? I called the restaurant and was just pushed around. I guess this is a way they make profit!!

Very good dim sum in Chinatown!!!

I just love it. It is so good and tasty that I go there once a week!!!! Their Dim Sum is probably once of the best in Boston Chinatown. The only inconvenient is it is very hard to find a parking in Chinatown.

I can live with the atmosphere but the food was not impressive

As far as atmosphere, Im not hard to please so I wasnt concerned with the place itself. My friend was raving about the calamari and it wasnt good at all. The fried rice was the only thing that was good. I ordered beef lo mein and I wasnt impressed at all. The noodles were super thin, and I asked for no bean sprouts and they still put them in there. For the amount of money I spent, I should of gone to PF changs.

Worth the trip to the DMV just for the Dim Sum

I wondered into Chau Chow after visiting the DMV one block over. I had no idea what the reputation of the restaurant was, nor what to expect. I was ushered into the back, up-stairs room which I later learned was the Dim Sum Room. Here, waiters and waitresses push around little carts of dumplings, rice, veggies, and dessert. I had no idea what I was ordering, and just pointed to random dishes. Everything was fantastic... view more

where everybody crowds after 2am

for dim sum this place is ok, but i usually prefer ""hei la moon"" on the other side of the gate (franklin street). it seems a bit ""cleaner"" (and tables less squished together) there. food is slightly there better too.\r \r one thing special about this place is, any club-goer knows this is THE place to go to for after-party eats and ""cold tea"".\r :)

Dim Sum for Sunday Brunch

I love chau chow's for their dim sum on sundays! It's a fun place to take your family for brunch. They go around the room with carts filled with dumplings and other things that you can choose from. It can get a little too hectic in there sometimes but overall it's one of my favorite places to go with the family.

Cheating on the Price

I ordered a Peking duck last Sunday (Sept. 26) as a takeout. I paied by my bank card. The price was $37.15 including tax and that was what I wrote on the bill. Today I checked my bank account and found out the restaurant took $40.70 from my card. I called several times and always got the answer that the manager wasn't there and no one else there could handle this. \r \r Is it worth to lose your reputation as being ... view more

Gotta Love This Chinese

This place is outstanding, period. Upon walking in to Chau Chow City we were greeted by an entourage of Chinese men anxious to seat us. Having been to China, it felt Chinese authentic. The menu is comprehensive, though it lacked a wide selection of beer. We ordered appetizers, which I kid you not were on our table within 3 minutes. I don't know how many people they have working back there if ya know what I mean,... view more
