Much better than you'd expect in a food court

This place is upstairs in a food court but has lots of seating and was pretty busy when we went for dinner. Both the bibim bap (sp?) and the kimchi soup, which we picked based on others' recommendations, were excellent. Reasonably cheap too.

Have the spicy chicken pot. The service was quick and with a smile. The flavors are awesome. A must visit when looking for a quality meal at a good price.

My husband ate here last night after the restaurant that we initially visited failed to deliver his meal in a reasonable time. The staff were friendly, the food delivered quickly and my husband said it was delicious!! We will be back.

My friends enjoyed their meat and seafood choices while I was very happy with the vegetarian version of bi-bim-bap. This was brought to the table in a sizzling hot bowl that lightly crisps the underside of the rice while producing delicious aromas. Fun and good value alternative to mainstream quick meals. Location is on the upper level of a small... More

Very disappointed with my last visit. tables left dirty and the food was not up to the standard i had come to expect. A beef noodle dish was made up mostly of cabbage an about 4 measly little strips of meat. My hot pot also had little taste.

Had the bimbimbap (is that how you spell it?) and no faults there. Food came out relatively fast, the only downside was that there were no side dishes

Although it is a little out of the way, once people have been, they keep going back. really good food, reasonably priced and casual atmosphere - just like most countries in Asia! worth checking out.

This is essentially Korean fast food. It tastes ok, on a single visit, and people are lining up before the restaurant opens. So locals like it.... However, it's in the food court of a mall (and not particularly upscale shopping). The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired, as a result. For instance, a large fan blows across the sit-down... More
