Don't let the outside scare you...good quality food.

We were driving through the area and used our gps to find Korean food. We were a little scared by the outside of this place, but I was pleased with all the dishes we got. Not quite as amazing as a Korean BBQ restaurant, but pretty good. The atmosphere is old but kind of quaint and homey. You... read more

We've been to Korean restaurants in Chicago that people say are the best. But we find that the best is located right in Lemont, small suburb right off I-55, quaint downtown, parking. Great food, family owned, quaint. No frills, don't miss having the "korean bbq grill" for an authentic Korean meal! The Korean Chicken wings (Dak Bok Kum) to die... More

Good, fast chinese food. Have only sampled takeout. Small portion is plenty for one person. Right across from commuter train station.

Authentic Chinese, not the out of the box taste you get at other Chinese restaurants. We've been going there for years and have never been disappointed.

Cheap prices. Top notch food. Best pot stickers around. Owner cooks your food. Inspired dishes with high quality ingredients. While the Chinese food is the best around, experiment with the Korean Dishes. I know the owners are actually Korean... so the Korean dishes are to die for! I love this place.

Like most Asian joint, this one is outdated. However, they put their effort into the food, which is all I really care about. Excellent spicy dishes, very fresh, highest quality everything. Homemade eggrolls are the best ever. Mongolian beef to die for. Schezhwan shrimp and chicken...omg...yum. Try the bolgolgi beef for an intro to Korean.

I've been here many times since they opened about 30 years ago. Expanded and remodeled about 15 years ago, and nothing done since to update- no paint, carpets, nada. I've gone to carryout. On the plus side, the food is excellent, especially Scheshwan (spelling?) menu. They also have an authentic Korean menu, which the many Koreans I see dining there... More
