I finally decided to try this place, went there to celebrate a friends birthday last week the taste and quality of the food were good and they had very tasty drinks also, the service was great and we had plenty of time to sit and enjoy our meal, is a great option for late dinner and drinks in the west village, we really had a good time will absolutely go there again, recommend to all

Let me start off with Philippe Chow Express must be one of if not THE worst restaurant in Manhattan. I have had many pleasant experiences at the Philippe on 60th street but this downtown outpost is the complete opposite. The restaurant itself looks like a slightly more upscale take-out place but is very dark and slightly unappealing. The menu is identical to Philippe uptown but with lower prices (Chicken Lettuce Wraps are $9 instead of $18). The service is actually what appalled me the most during this visit. I had told my server about my severe nut/peanut allergy multiple times through out my lunch and he had told me that everything would be peanut and nut free. Low and behold, during my first appetizer of Vegetable Dumplings (which I have had at Philippe on 60th street before and have been fine) I started to have an allergic reaction. I later left the restaurant and was rushed to Lennox Hill on 77th & Lexington. The food wasn't good at Philippe Chow Express (not that the quality of food was my main concern at the time) and isn't worth going all the ways down to 6th ave and 11th street for. For quality food with good service just stick to Philippe uptown or Mr. Chow in Tribeca. Unfortunately for me I can't risk eating at Chinese restaurants anymore even if they are upscale since with every allergic reaction I have, the symptoms become more severe. I do hope Philippe Chow Express closes down in the near future and it just might since when I went the restaurant was completely empty and the delivery man was taking out trash as opposed to delivering food orders. Do your self a favor and never visit Philippe Chow Express, there's better Chinese food, well just food in general, in the city and the service is incompetent and doesn't take its clientele seriously (if I could give this restaurant negative stars I would).

I love Philippe Chows Satay's in the west village. This 6th ave location is the perfect stop for a quick bite to eat or a realxing meal. At express you can relax in a pair of jeans, watch the news on tv and hang out with friends. This place is a visonary in the highend food market. Prices are perfect , you can dine or order out. They hold a standard which is nothing less then prefection. I give this resturant 5 stars. "A MUST HAVE"

This place is extraordinary! The service is impeccable, the Lychee Martini's are sensational and the food is out of this world. So are the prices. Don't expect a reasonable Chinese meal in this chic location but if price is no object, the food is perfect. The lettuce wraps, green shrimp, green noodles and lobster rolls were wonderful and everyone at our table (and the tables nearby) raved about each and every entree. Quite a dining experience, not for every day, but if you can afford a splurge now and then, this is the place to dine. Highly recommended.
