My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant for my birthday since I love Korean culture. When I saw the menu, i was disappointed alot. There wasn't a variety of foods in the menu. I wish the management would add more food to the menu. So that atleast I can try dokkboki.

We were craving Korean food and were so happy to find this restaurant. It was reassuring that the woman who picked up the phone was Korean. The food was great and tasted authentically Korean, and reasonably priced (we payed 2300 for 2 entrees and a couple drinks). We would recommend this restaurant and would definitely go again.

We ordered Bulgogi, some pork and pancakes. Food was very good and price wasn't bad compared to the chinese restaurant we went the day before. I also saw a Korean chef cooking in the kitchen which is not a surprise at all. the food is truly local I think.

I phoned to see if the restaurant was still in business and to my delight a Korean woman answered in Korean so I knew this place was going to be great. I took four of my friends for lunch and we had the Bibimbap, Bulgogi, Stir fried pork, and Soybean soup. Everything was delicious. In true Korean style they bring... More
