Went in for dinner after work. One of us ordered the all day breakfast and while she never leaves scraps on a plate elsewhere at least half the food was left behind. The food was over cooked and tasteless.
The fettuccini chicken and mushroom dish was almost good but the cream was overpowering all other flavours.
Maybe we made bad choices with these dishes but next time we will go elsewhere

Chow Bella is in the Lidcombe Centre, and we were at the Centre for a family outing of ten pin bowling. We're all from different parts of Sydney, so it was pot luck finding somewhere to eat afterwards. Our party of 8 adults plus a 4 yr old had a lovely dinner here.Staff were efficient and accommodating, the menu has something for everyone, and the food was great - fresh, nicely presented, and generous servings. Unexpected ambience, too, given you're right above busy Parramatta Road - seated outside with underlit cafe umbrellas. An added bonus, contrary to some advices on the net, they're licensed. Just beside us was a great little play area for kids, so our 4 year old could be supervised without us leaving our table - and, believe it or not, no noise from that! We had a lovely meal, everyone was delighted with their menu choices, and no disappointments. As mentioned, it is way out of our areas, but we won't hesitate to return. Good people doing good food, for a good price, in a pleasant setting. That's all I need to give this place a 5, on its merits.They also do cocktails, and terrific Mocktails!

The food was poor quality.
The wait staff didn’t provide seperate plates for entree.
Signage at front of store was misleading.
Overall highly disappointing dining experience, rather go to Rashey’s, at least you know what you’re getting.

I love the quick service here, the vegetarian breakfast is delicious and the burgers are great! Have been a few times with my partner and always had a great meal.

This little cafe in the food hall is a very pleasant surprise. Fast and friendly service. Indoor and outdoor tables. The lunch special menu has a good variety at different price points. I had a beef burger with cheese and chips for $10 plus $1.50 for a coke. Great burger and great value. There's a more extensive menu and many, many cakes to choose from.
