Eleven of us - all family members of 6 adults & 5 kids - came here on Chinese New Year expecting for a long wait since we had no reservations.

We are regulars at Myung Dong. The service is always very attentive. The owner and the waitress are always very smily. We always order the soon tofu, Galbi Tang and the BBQ dishes. They all taste delicious and so are their variety of side dishes.

Been here twice now during my visits to San Francisco...the ladies there are very nice and always so happy. I got the galbi full order. Delicious! The side plates are delicious as well, the seaweed is my favourite! Great casual place to eat

This is a must for our family. When we all gather, we all want to go here - young and old alike - something that pleases all of our palates. The food is fresh, delicious and very generous portion sizes.

The food came out piping hot and it's because it was served in a hotpot. The restaurant also serves up free appetizers at lunchtime.

The only korean restaurant in the area and it's pretty good. They actually have the Korean style (vs LA style) galbi. Same family owners as Tofu House in Palo Alto and Santa Clara. Expanded menu to include all standard korean dishes including BBQ classics cooked at your table.
