We were looking for a place to eat away from Newport and stumbled onto this place. It is located in a quiet little plaza that seemed quiet for the evening. We were surprised at how large it was inside. The menu was fairly extensive and offered Korean and Japanese food specialties. We ordered a number of appetizers to try and... More

While staying in Newport we wanted to get away from the crowds in the downtown area. We decided to try the SEA SHAI and it was wonderful. Out of the way and good quality food. I haven't had Korean good in a long time. Brought back some good memories. I recommend if your in the area.

I have been going there once a week following a class I take in Newport. I asked for Hae du bap - not on the menu, but they make it for me anyway - sparkling fresh raw fish on vegetables, with small sides of kimchee and other small treats. Fabulous food. It's my main "go to" place. Last time before... More

Sushi is great, Korean BBQ is awesome! The spicy chicken soup "Dak Gae Jang" is downright crave-able. The atmosphere is conducive to a proper meal with friends or even for business and it's never crazy full or loud in my experience. Good selection of sushi specials and due to excellent take-out popularity, the food is always fresh even though the... More
