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.

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.

We first discovered Korea House when it opened in the spring. We have never been disappointed. We have had the Kalbi, short ribs, chapchae and really enjoyed them. Just enough side dishes without overwhelming us. Servers were very attentive. The owner lady was very friendly and helpful. The menu has pictures so don't be concerned if you don't know Hangul...

We love the Ka lbi short ribs here- always served sizzling hot with lots of sides- tasty! The chicken and spicy pork Korean bar-b-que entrees are delicious, also. This last time, we tried a seafood soup- was served piping hot and was enjoyable, but could barely "count" the seafood in the claypot (stated "oyster" but received one mussel; the one... More

It's only worth it if you avail of the lunch specials which is about $10 per person. We went for dinner the other night, and it wasn't good value for money. I thought the kalbi (barbecued short ribs) were overpriced at $19.95; the fried squid wasn't that good either, it was just batter with a bit of squid; the fried... More
