This is the sort of place that natives go to. Great sushi and also great Korean BBQ spread. We have not explored all of the menu but judging from the number of ethnic guests enjoying the food, it ought to be good. We will definitely return and would recommend this highly

I have passed this place for years and never ventured in but last week I took my son there for his birthday and it was outstanding. We had three courses (steak, pork and shrimp) all BBQd at our table. The side dishes were simply out of this world. Reasonably priced and the service was great. I'll be back for sure.

Japanese food can be very expensive. This place isn't. My dinner bill was under $40 including a glass of wine, and I ordered some of the higher priced items. The food is good, but not outstanding. I liked the feel of the place. It is a warm, family friendly restaurant.

Strolled on in here on a very cold day for lunch. I was seated by myself as I'm staying down the road at the Holiday Inn. Knew nothing in advance of the restaurant so this was a surprise. Food is advertised as "Korean and Japanese" cuisine, although I think the owners and staff are Korean. Walked in and was greeted... More

I have been going here for the past 15 years and I have never been disappointed. They staff is friendly and the food is great. I lean towards the Korean dishes, particularly the Hwae Dup Bap and Bulgogi (this is Korean BBQ), but their Sushi is also very good. If you want to do BBQ, be sure to get a... More

We went for lunch and had a nice experience. Being from the CST zone, we came in as the buffet was closing. There was still a decent selection and quality available. But we could definitely feel a "hurry up" atmosphere.
