What a great spot! It's not pretentious, expensive or crowded. The menu is pretty extensive so ask for a recommendations if you are not familiar. The most popular dish is probably the stone bibimbap, which I am craving right now. Nice family setting but also perfect for a romantic meal or a fun time with friends.

We went out for a romantic meal, and were met by friendly staff but uninspired. No enthusiasm about the menu when asked what they recommend. I would say they put this place together on a tight budget or at least that is how it felt. Table was greasy and the condiments has dried on food (or at least I hope... More

After reading numerous reviews I decided to come here and was not disappointed. The menu is diverse. I ended up getting the Bulgogi Salad and the Soon Tofu. You can never go wrong with Bulgogi on lettuce. It was light and tasty. The soon tofu had all the right ingredients but it didn't seem dense enough compared to traditional soon... More

Stopped here for lunch as we were looking for something different. Place was empty but it smelled so good we decided to stay. Everything was absolutely delicious, and prices seemed fair givrn the quality. It was lacking ambiance, but perhaps it gets livelier at night.

I made a return trip to this restaurant since my last review, for my birthday with a large group of friends. I have to say, they've definitely improved! I was the only one at the table of 13 or so who had ever had Korean food before, and no one had anything bad to say. I am deeply in love... More

This was the last place we ate at in our travels around the city & I wish it had been my every meal. Everything about my meal was just so delicious, flavourful and fresh! We were a table of 4, plus my 10 month old daughter. A friend at the table has allergies to dairy & shell fish, but was... More

The food is great here if you like asian food with lots of choices and all of them very delicious. Better than the food is the service! The make you feel so welcome there and they cater all your wishes... It's my most favorite restaurant in St. John's.

Looking for something different, we decided to try this small restaurant on one of St. John's main streets. What a good choice! The menu was large and the items were well explained. I tried the Stone Bibimbab, which was one of the tastiest meals I've had in long time. The ingredients were fresh and the rice on the bottom nice... More

Authentic and tasty. Few restaurants can compare to the quality and service here. We had the stone bibimbab - perfection! Would highly recommend it.
