Fodor's Review

Spread across three floors, this is the largest, glitziest, and most versatile production yet of the Chau Chow dynasty, with dim sum by day and live-tank seafood by night. Overwhelmed? At lunch, order dim sum off rolling carts making their rounds or the clams in black-bean sauce, the sautéed pea-pod stems with garlic, or the honey-glazed shrimp with walnuts. Chau Chow is one of the area's only restaurants that keeps serving well into the wee hours (until 3 am weekdays

and 4 am on weekends), making it a staple for late-night diners. Service can be slow and some consider the food overpriced.
