First time trying Korean, a good place to start...

My mom and I tried So Kong Dong because it is on the "Eater Atlanta - 25 Iconic Atlanta Dishes" list. When we entered at 1ish on Saturday we were seated immediately. We ordered the Bulgogi (the dish we were supposed to try) along with a tofu soup (seafood) and rib combo. Overall we really enjoyed... read more

We tried their seafood variety toufu hot pot and it was very good,it comes with white rice with no choice for bean rice as this is what we really like (and many similar place offer them,it comes in a stoneware to keep it hot) but this place comes in a stainless steel bowl. The delicacy they brought with the meal... More

First time at this place and there were a couple of things that didn't make my visit as pleasant as I would have wanted it to be. It looked a little busy when we walked in so we waited a few minutes to be seated. Menu was easy to look through and to choose from. Most of my friends and... More

Visited this place during a business trip to Atlanta. I had a combination which consists of a big bowl of soup and a small plate of grilled Korean ribs, which cost around $20.00. The food was pretty good and came with the usual samplings of Korean side dishes. The service was fast despite being full of customers. If my waitress... More

If I went back I would just get the Korean BBQ ribs. They were excellent. $30+ for lunch for two was too expensive. My husband, who is more experienced with Korean BBQ, said this was very expensive and would have cost half as much elsewhere. The appetizers were interesting. Staff was very friendly and helpful to me who had never... More

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.
