This is the best soondubu place in Fort Lee! Everyone comes here and if all us Asians come here then you know it's good!!! Spicy Mushroom or Beef soondubu and BBQ ribs all the way! The side dishes they offer is so good, from the spicy vinegar cucumbers, bean sprouts, kimchi to the radish. Quick, tasty, filling authentic Korean food!

They serve fine tofu stew. There are about 8 different kinds of tofu stew. I tried them all and they are all great! They are even nicer with kalbi which is korean barbequed beef short ribs. Try Gejang if you like challenging foods. It is a fresh raw crabs marinated with chili pepper powder.

Going to get the dislike out of the way since theres only one, PARKING. It's a pain in but worth it!! This place is the BIZZZOOOOMMMB! Simply put, the best soft tofu house I've been to in NJ and NYC in my humble opinion. The grilled kalbi is cooked to perfection, with a taste that brings you back to Korea..... More

Alwas enjoy their food. Tofu and L.A. style short ribs but need to vamp up their service. Atmosphere is not up to my taste. Too loud. Cleanliness is questionable. I rather go to BCD tofu place couple of blocks down.

The environment is so so, but if you want to taste an authentic tofu soup within your budget, it is a good place to go.

They say this is the place to be for tofu soup or commonly known as Soon du bu. I tried the kimchi beef with mild spice. I guess it was ok although am not really a fan of tofu soup. I suspect it will be good come winter. I did like the usual appetizers of spiced up cabbage, cucumber, etc.... More

Complain about tip saying it was too little should be 15% asked if food was good if so give more. They made a scene in front of all customers

I got sick after eating dinner here. I think it was too much MSG. There were three of us and none of us finished our dishes even though we were really hungry. Side-dishes were terrible. Wouldn't recommend.
