Mr Chow's - Chinese food delivered home





I have grown quite fond of a Chinese place called Mr Chow's which is a home delivery only place.


I first got to know about it when their menu was slipped in under the door along with our newspaper one morning. The bright red colour caught my eye and the baseline 'lai! lai! lai! Come on let's eat' called me. I have ordered quite a few times from there and find their food to be nice. They are very prompt in delivering orders too.


I tried their Cantonese Steamed Chicken noodles today as I didn't one something fried. It was fairly healthy I guess and, despite that, tasty. I seasoned it with a bit of soya and, call me a philistine, ketchup.


I have tried their hakka noodles, kung pao chicken and chilly chicken/ lamb (in the photo here, not jet black unlike in most other places) in the past which were quite good too.
They are one of the few places to offer pork and lamb if you have the heart for it.

Some more things about the experience which you won't get in Calcutta:
- I ordered only one dish and they delivered it
- they said 30 min and delivered it in fifteen
- the delivery boy had a BIG smile and did not ask for the the tip by himself
Now here's the joke, I ordered a cantonese steamed noodle, which is fairly close to Calcutta's 'chowmein'

In Calcutta:
- Even restaurants that are a 5-mins from your house wont deliver unless u order 300-400 worth of food
- They take FOREVER to deliver
- Every Tom Dick Harry in Calcutta wants & asks for a tip
- Cabbies, shopkeepers etc. are RUDE & MANNERLESS

How about renaming the article to Kolkata chinese food vs. Mumbai?? Who gives a shit, is Mr. Chows any good?
