If you want authentic Korean food and experience I highly recommend this place. Once you enter the place you feel like you are stepping into a different place. Staff are all so nice and very helpful. Food comes out real fast and plenty of them. Absolutely love the tofu soup, seafood pancake (really big too), korean bbq. The side dishes... More

We made a point to stop in Atlanta for Korean food on our long drive back to WI. I did a lot of research and decided on this restaurant because it would be pretty close to I75. Did I luck out! We arrived around 8PM on a Saturday night and were seated right away. It's a smaller restaurant, but I'd... More

Good Korean food period. Not much else but who needs it if the food taste great! The bubble tea place right next door was the perfect finish to a great meal.

Thus place is usually packed on weekends. All type of tofu soup is great choice and Korean BBQ is also wonderful. Service is quick and efficient.

This is my favorite Korean place in Atlanta. The soups are great (especially on these cool fall days) with my favorite being the spicy seafood soup (T3). The bibimbap and the seafood pancakes are also good. I've taken several Korean friends over the years and they say it is very authentic. Prices are reasonable with most dishes under $10. Check...

I went there several times a month. The price is very low, and the food there is very good, especially if you like spice food. They also offer you quite good side if you order a Tofu soup. The Pancake there is also awesome.

We've been coming here for a number of years. We went to several different Korean restaurants before coming here, and are so glad we found this one. I love the tofu soup and the barbeque ribs. They truly have the best korean ribs I've tasted.

I like Korean food, This is the place to get traditional dishes and the staff are excellent. This is the genuine article not some westernized version. It was a tiny bit hard to find and there may be a bit of a wait for a table BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. There were four of us and we had a... More

I was totally unfamiliar with Korean cuisine except for the grocery store-type Kim Chi, whic I do not like. The service was excellent: speedy, helpful and friendly, despite a full house. The food was tasty, not too weird for an ignorant westerner. I had the leek pancake, which was a tad greasy on the bottom but good. My friends had... More

So Kong Dong is a fantastic Tofu house on Buford Hwy. The sides (Banchan) are great - the soup is great - with lots of the ingredients you chose on the menu. The service is decent, for a Korean place - They are quite friendly, but not as attentive as I you find in non-asian dinning. Still - they are... More
