Prompt and friendly service. Food is great, try some of the OB beer too! If you take out instead of eating in, the food is equally well made.

Went with a Korean friend who said they are similar to dumplings at home. Quite a variety! Cute little place with very friendly owners. If you want to try Korean Dumplings, this is a good place to start.

Ttowa (pronounced DOH-wa) is a lovely place to eat. One block from the train station on a side street, it's offers attractive decor and excellent service at a reasonable price. The menu is small, but the portions are ample and presented nicely. It being my first time, I asked for a suggestion. Sam Gyup Sal, I was told, was a... More

My husband and I have been here at least five times now because it is so good! Whenever we have visitors we always take them to Ttowa. The staff are wonderful (they even remember us!), the food is perfect, the atmosphere is nice, and the beer/liquor selection is good. This is our absolute favorite place in the area!

If you're looking for some good Korean food around Chicago O'Haire, this lovely tiny Korean restaurant is the right place to go to. I would recommend the seafood pancake and chicken wings for starters and head right into your entree (bulgogi is a sure winner) or any of their authentic Korean dishes.

When you first time go to this place, you will feel it is a little bit small; but once you taste the food, you will absolutely feel it is really a nice restaurant.

This is a very small Korean restaurant with a big impact on your taste buds. Great Korean food with a very attentive owner who is a great ambassador for Korean food. He was more than happy to walk us through the menu and help us pick some great dishes.

About the place : Conveniently located in Arlington Heights downtown. The place is small and cozy ideal for a family dinner. Service : The service was quick even on a Saturday night. The waiters and the owner were warm and helpful in explaining about the dishes and guiding us to the recommended dishes. Their recommendations lived up to the expectations.... More
