Went there for a family dinner, thinking of yummy side dishes and spicy tofu soup. Ordered 4 dishes which by American Standard should result in leftovers. However, when the food arrived, the sizes were so mini that we overheard the the next table whose food had also just arrived remarked that either the owners had changed or the sizes had... More

My friend recommended to have an early dinner last Sunday at Lighthouse Tofu. I guess you can have an idea that their specialty is tofu and that is precisely why we came here. We met before 6 p.m. and we had the seafood tofu soup. What can I say? I've had tofu soup in Korean restaurants but this one is... More

Wow. Where do i start? I have not had such a bad meal ever. Our family went to Light house Tofu and BBQ restaurant on Saturday night for dinner. Everything was just awful. The steamed dumpling was frozen inside. The seafood pancake was too greasy to eat. Even the rice had turned to porridge from sitting around too long. The... More

Lighthouse is a go-to place for wonderful soups, especially Sundubu. Other dishes, like grilled meats, are better elsewhere.

The pancakes are good, the spicy noodles are extraordinary but the soup here is above all, scrumptious. I go here almost every month with my family and there is something new on the menu almost each time. The potato pancakes are perfect for any potato lover and all pancakes come quickly if your really hungry along with small side dishes... More

Although the barbecue is very food, the tofu soup is excellent. All food comes with a large selection of free kimchi and side dishes.

The menu here is small - because they specialize - tofu soups, octopus with noodles, Korean pancakes, bulgogi, kalbitang (kalbi soup). Their kalbi (grilled beef short ribs) is fantastic! You will be greeted by Korean hostesses in red traditional garb. The banchan (small Korean side dishes) may differ from day to day but will usually consist of at least pickled... More

Excellent hot broths and BBQ! The service is efficient and friendly, the condiments portions are generous and plentiful. Great for families and casual dining. Good menu selection, we just wished there were even more dishes to choose from, we know they'd be excellent. We would be happy to return for more delicious food.

We have eaten here many times and always end up ordering one or more of the tofu pots (served with an egg), the beef bulgogi, and stir fried baby octopus. Everything is hearty and good tasting. They bring you a large collection of condiments, including kimchi and many other things, as soon as you order, which is very nice because... More
