CIRCA 1968

On Valentines Day 1968 in Knightsbridge, the first MR CHOW opened its doors to introduce a new concept of Fine Dining restaurant, serving authentic Beijing Cuisine with elegant European style service. Designed by Michael Chow, who was one of the first to display important original works of art in a dining room, it remains as one of the most uniquely beautiful restaurants in London.

Over the years the creative chefs started to develop and introduce new and original recipes of MR CHOW such as Green Prawns, the famous Chicken Satay and MR CHOW Noodles. It is also the first restaurant to bring out a chef to perform original hand-pulled Beijing style noodle making as a nightly entertainment.

Known as an institution in London, MR CHOW draws the generations of the young and fashionable by serving consistently excellent food prepared by Executive Chef Tim Leaf.

General Manager/Maitre d': Dino Kastrati

"Conran himself is not aware of having transformed eating out in London"..."If I had to nominate anybody I'd say Michael Chow (at Mr Chow in Knightsbridge).  His really was the first designed restaurant that I was aware of.  He got Italian waiters in to serve Chinese food, and his attitude towards art and the atmosphere I found very modern and very much to my taste."
- Terence Conran, The Times UK 

"All of it impeccable, great, tasty, a triumph! That was a good meal, to put it mildly"
- Michael Winner, London Sunday Times.

"Lives up to its own celebrity and reputation in terms of food quality;" and "indeed, one gets easily addicted."
