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.

So Kong Dong lives up to its reputation. The soondooboo here is currently the best I've had in the states (take this with a grain of salt though as I have yet to step foot into an L.A. soondooboo joint). Right off the bat, you can tell So Kong Dong is committed to producing legit soondooboo because that's all there... More

We had dinner on a sunday and there was a pretty long line, and since their receiving area is so small, we decided to stay in the car and asked the host to call us when it's our turn. They let us ordered first then when we got to our table, food were ready! We had kimchi tofu soup, seafood... More

I've been a huge fan of So Kong Dong for a long time. It's a no-frills soondubu (tofu) restaurant with quick service and a directed menu. It's probably the best soondubu I've had in the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan area - there's usually always a wait around dinner time, but the staff does a good job of trying to move... More

I took my family and a friend for lunch to this restaurant yesterday. As a Korean, I have to say I'm impressed with the food and service. The soft tofu and the only other menu item bbq rib were on par with what you'd see in Korea, with very reasonable prices for what you get. I highly recommend this place.

This is the best place for Korean comfort food when the weather gets chilly. The tofu soup is warm and silky. My husband and I usually get the soup with pork, and you can specify the degree of spiciness when you order (none, little, moderate and very spicy). Each order comes with small side dishes, like kimchi and picked radish... More

The place does not seem designed for couples or small groups, but for large groups, probabably families. I was surprised at the high noise level. Prices are quite high, probably 50% higher than the usual Chinese restaurant, and, tho service was OK, the food itself was, at best pedestrian. A 'special', Mongolian steak, @ $14.95 was less than ordinary. I... More
