MR CHOW in Beverly Hills: First-Class With a Huge Bill!
The combination of classic Chinese cuisine, art and the constant patronage of celebrities heavily contributes to the distinguished reputation of MR CHOW.

The creator of MR CHOW is, appropriately, Michael Chow, designer, painter, actor, entrepreneur, art collector and director.
He opened four other restaurants in London and Miami and two in New York. All are considered five-star and have a dedicated fan base including international stars and regular Joes like you and me.
