A perfect evening. From the Valet girls who took our car,to the excellent service in the restaurant and fantastic food and drinks. The crab-pork spring rolls were so good we had 3 orders.Korean bar b q short ribs and salt & pepper shrimp were also delicious. You must try the Odon,Bacon,Fried Egg,Smoky Miso...Fantastic!!!Also..we had an extra order of the spicy garlic eggplant.Their desserts are really good. We had an extra chocolate souffle!!
We were 6 adults and 2 children and stayed for almost 3 hours.A perfect overall dining experience.

Standing Rib Roast (Prime Rib) at Hows

We tried a 2 bone prime rib from Costco last week and was blown away!!!It really was so good I could`nt believe it was from Costco.We just ate at Lawry`s the week before so we had a good reference point.
