Chau Chow City 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.

    One of Chinatown's best for dim sum

    With Hei La Moon, China Pearl, and Emperor's Garden, one of the top places to get dim sum in Boston's Chinatown. Good food and respectable service.
