Serving up a menu that combines classic bistro favourites with Asian-influenced cuisine, Chow House is set along the bustling James Street food strip. An informal eating house, Chow House delivers fresh flavoursome fare in a casual dining environment. Tasty morsels are inspired by street food, with Sichuan Pepper Deboned Quail and Peking Duck with Shallot Pancake amongst the share plates. Thirsty folk will find original cocktail recipes behind the bar, with the Chilli Mocha Martini a stand-out favourite. The impressive new design is evident at first glance from the street, with a wooden frame bordering the outdoor dining, the structure dotted with small terracotta pots of ferns and herbs. An open space that transitions easily from indoors to out, Chow House sees white metal stools mingling with wooden chairs, while white kitchen tiling outlines the street bar.
