Chow is definitely a Wellington favourite! You must go to Chow if you're in Wellington, and even better if its on a Monday because then you get 2 for 1! Chow has nailed it, the food melts in your mouth and the whole vibe is very chilled out. The waiters are always polite and efficient. The best way to enjoy Chow is with a cocktail at the neighbouring bar, 'Library' beforehand and then sit down to the 5 spice yellow curry. They don't take bookings on Mondays, so be prepared for a slight wait.

Chow is a Wellington institution. The fresh, Asian cuisine is yet to be a let down, and the bar leaves nothing to be desired! Vegan options are plenty, as are non-alcoholic cocktails for those that way inclined. The balcony overlooking the downtown foot traffic is always the perfect perch for people watching, and escaping a busy day!

sit outside on the veranda on a nice day and enjoy the contemporary asian food fresh and tasty

Absolutely love Chow in Wellington - such delicious food for good value. I love two for one Mondays, and can't go past their gyoza and red duck curry!

Superb! I can never get enough of Chow Tory! Small plates of delectable morsels to taste and share among friends. The service is fantastic and if the food isn't enough...their amazing cocktails will seal the deal (try their famous Rosebud). Highly recommend you try Chow! #shoutme

Love Chow! They have a 2-4-1 night on mondays which is great value and their dumplings are delicious. I love trying new things here because they always amaze! Staff are always so friendly and go above and beyond to make sure your experience is 5 star!! #shoutme


Taste sensations! Always love this place - never disappoints with such a wide range of asian plates & tastes to share. Love the sultry ambiance combined with the friendly service & ever so tasty treats. Highly recommend you try their famous "Rosebud" cocktail...delicious!

You can’t call yourself a Wellingtononian if you haven’t been to Chow at least once!! Their two-for-one deals on Mondays make for a super cheap night out too #shoutme.

They have delicious food, great atmosphere, a cool place to take friends.
