I had lunch with my wife and three teenagers. Staff were very friendly. We ordered Bibimbap, Korean barbeque, miso soup and seafood pancakes. Food was well prepared, seasoned and had an appealing presentation. The restaurant feels quiet and relaxing. We had a good time.

My wife and I come here often when we need a break. Very good food, reasonably priced, and on the quiet side so we can actually talk. The interior is a bit rundown, but we take that as a mark of eccentricity. Get the kimchee and scallion pancakes, the Snow Mountain maki roll, a cold Kirin Ichiban, then maybe take... More

I came here with some coworkers on afternoon for lunch and had never heard of the place. The menu overwhelmed me at first because of how much food it displayed, as well as being a combo of Korean and Japanese food. I ended up ordering the Bibimbap in the hot stone bowl and had no idea what to expect because... More

Went here with a large group for lunch; there were only a few other people having lunch. We got a few appetizers to share - scallion pancakes were very oily and had huge chunks of scallion in them which made it hard to eat. I got a beef teriyaki bento box - it was't that great. The beef was fatty... More

I'm really surprised that this place isn't packed every night. The food is great, the atmosphere is calm and comfortable, and the service is personable and friendly. Even the prices are attractive, especially for the truly fresh, handmade meals. I almost don't want to tell the world because I love always getting a good table, but they work so hard... More

Nice place. Eaten there twice, with a good experience both times. Sushi was fresh, though the "kamikaze" was nothing like you would expect from the name. Plenty of parking, and lots of tables inside.

Food here is not limited to Korean. Also has other Asian but the Korean food is excellent. The bibimbab is great, every version. Also the shamui appetizer is terrific. This is one of my locals and I love it.

I went her because we had a goupon and took with some family visiting from out of town. While I liked the variety on the menu, most of us were not impressed with our food. The food was bland in some cases. The restaurant also seemed a little decrepit and disorganized. We only had a group of 5 and the... More

We decided to try this place since I had just purchased a Groupon for it. Overall this is a decent place but there are so many other ones that are better that we won't be going back anytime soon. Pros: The atmosphere was nice and definitely family-oriented on a Friday evening. Plenty of on-site parking. Service was friendly and attentive.... More

I am Korean and I went there with non-Koreans, who all enjoyed the bibimbap...but it was a pale version of the real thing. I saw someone else's noodle dish - also looked like a shortcut version of the real thing. My spicy-tofu stew was quite good. The side dishes were weak. No Korean soju - I asked the waitress why...
