The food at Chow's is not your typical asian food. The food is definately 5 star. The food is fresh, presentation is very nice, and Chow's uses interesting food and/or spice combinations in the preparation. The service is a little slow and server needed to be more familiar with the menu. One member requested additional white pepper for the hot and sour soup and the waiter was befuddled. After looking for some time, he came back with regular pepper and said that Chows didn't have white pepper. This is a very minor problem. Chow's is a restaurant that should not be missed.
