Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great meal - fast service, polite staff. I love being able to order a variety of plates to share. This is a great place to come before a show because they are efficient at getting your food out!

Good service, good food, good bg music : ) Also, this is the best (only?) place in Te Whanganui-a-Tara that the kitchen stays open late!

Had a lovely dinner with family from overseas. We all enjoyed our food, service was great and friendly. No pressure to leave when meal finished. Feel the cost was as expected for good food and service.

As a non-meat eating family Chow always delivers in choice and quality of food - But on the Vegan Takeover days we are almost overwhelmed with delicious choices. Yet again we had an incredibly tasty dining experience. The atmosphere was buzzing and the waitstaff super...responsive. Perfect!More

Used to live in Wellington and Chow was one of my favourite restaurants. So of course I had to pop in while visiting the city. Food, drinks and service still amazing. Highlights were the 2 for 1 Rosebud cocktails, the pork pancakes and the banana...leaf wrapped fish. Missed the Mussel fritters they used to do but I guess the menu can change a bit in 20 years.More

Visited ,Chow for lunch as a group of 5 and had high expectations, the menu online looked great. First impressions, restaurant are very dated and not overly clean. Staff were friendly on arrival but then nowhere to be seen and we were waiting to order...drinks for 20 mins. Couldn’t order via the table bar code as the lunch deal is not on there. Eventually ordered and food came out quickly. The Korean fried chicken was delicious but very small portions for $21, just 4 small pieces on the bone. Grilled chicken salad had beautiful flavours. The express lunch deal is fantastic value with broth, 2 “mains” (very small) and a side of rice for $17. Overall good good but portions could be slightly bigger and the restaurant interior needs a good overhaul.More

We enjoyed our overnighter at Tryp. Great location with loads of food and recreational options right on the door step. A small room but they had thought of everything including a super comfortable bed and a choice of pillows. Why pay for a larger square...meterage when you have everything you need and don't feel cramped. We are back in August and really looking forward to it.More

Our group for this booking are all Chow regulars and when our food came out we all commented how well everything is always cooked at Chow - without fail, every single time. Also we knew we’d have to vacate our table 2hrs from our booking...- however, that group must’ve been placed somewhere else and we were able to leave on our own accord when we were ready, which we all really appreciated. The only feedback I would give is, the bar leaner seats we were on were a wee bit high for a few of us and we had sore legs by the end of it, but that’s it.More

Great meal - nearly a 5 but I only use 5 for really special meals. The food was tasty and reasonably priced and the Syrah was yummy.
