A great Korean Tofu place!

Whenever I need a change, I come to MD. I've been here so many times. The owner has another one down in Santa Clara but I like this one better. You come early, you don't need to wait. But it does get busy later on. The wait staff is helpful and very busy it they always seem to be... read more

Cheap and cheerful Korean place, nestled in the marina plaza shopping center. I've been walking past this place for years, because it's called a 'Tofu cabin'. I thought that meant only vegetarian Korean food, but no, - this is a proper Korean BBQ joint, doing some of the best meat I've had in the bay area. Order the Galbi (Beef... More

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. The lady owner was very accommodating and worked fast to arrange for a long table for us. We were seated after about 10 minutes. Not bad. After a few minutes... More

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.
