We had lunch here. The portions are huge and nice, especially the spicy seafood with rice. There were lots of big prawns and scallops. As for the spicy seafood noodles, there were lots and lots of vege in it with some shrimps and lots of seafood fish cake. Price is decent as compared to what we had been eating in... More

A local who worked in the veggie business advised us to go there because of the fresh food. Small restaurant, good atmosphere, kind staff. If you want you can share a table. If not you can wait a very long time for a seat. We ordered 2 different dishes and some side dishes, all to share. Never had Korean food... More

Really great little find. We got take-away, it was quick and fresh and so yummy. Didn't love the sushi though. Best to leave the Japanese food to the Japanese and just eat the real Korean dishes here!

This is a cozy little restaurant offering good quality food at a good price. The plate sized vegetable pancakes are very tasty as are the Buglogi stir fries. The side dishes of seaweed salad, and kimchi go well with any of the meals we have tried so far. And the ginger tea is a great drink to go with your... More

We usually pop into this restaurant for some quick, tasty food for lunch. Soups are tasty (not too salty) and the Korean sushi is always yummy. however, the only disappointment is that they are often sold out of certain flavours of sushi. Service is always with a smile.

After reading the great reviews on trip advisor we decided to dine at this beautiful restaurant. We were not dissapointed! The food tasted amazing and was terrific value. Make sure you book and ask for a table by the window. Would certainly return to this quaint establishment!

OMG.......This had to be the best meal I have had in the mountains, ever! Service was wonderful, food off the Richter scale and so affordable. Went with my best friends and we had a great night. Definitely be back. So nice to finally find somewhere that serves great food, especially when we live here, that doesn't cost an arm and... More
