Korean food newbie

I've never eaten anything but Korean BBQ before, so this was a new experience. My hubby is more adventurous with food and has eaten Korean food before, so he was my gastronomical guide this trip. I ordered beef sirloin and my hubs had seafood. It came with a bunch of sides. I enjoyed it... read more

Our extended family enjoys going here. It is our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter's favorite restaurant. Service is friendly and fast. Food is tasty and inexpensive. We always order the short ribs and the glass noodles. Those items are not spicy. With dinner comes a variety of food in small bowls--potatoes in a spicy sauce, fish in a spicy sauce,... More

Generally good food. But the staff got our order wrong on 2 separate occasions. Food was good, but extremely spicy. Will return and order extra rice to counter spiciness. Lunch may be a better bargain with $10 bento box style lunches.

We had occasion to visit here again with a mostly vegetarian group. We ordered variations of the Bibm Bap hot pots, and all were excellent, even with various possibly confusing special orders. However, the outstanding item, and the main reason I am taking the time to review this restaurant again, was the kim chi pancake (Kim Chi Jun). It was... More

Weekend evenings are busy, busy, busy here, so be prepared for a wait as they don't take reservations. Service is a bit frantic-- and we were a bit surprised when we were told that "seconds" on one of the side dishes (I think it was the transparent noodles) would cost us extra. When we all scowled, the waiter backed off,... More

Authentic, tasty Korean food at a great price in a sketchy strip mall. The lunch special is served weekdays and Saturday! And it is served with the meat portion of your meal on a separate platter so it is easy to share family style.

Four of us had lunch there on a Sunday - so no lunch specials! We ordered three dishes - chicken and pork Bar-B-Que along with Beef with Glass Noodles. Before our order came they brought out a bunch of complimentary appetizers, more like make your own sushi rolls. Sea weed wrapper, rice, anchovies, kimchi, potatoes, and a couple of vegetables....

You can distinguish the authentic Korean touch on their dishes. Compared to high end hotel restaurants this hole in the wall provides delicious meal for a reasonable price.
