Stopped in for lunch just before noon. Four tables were already seated. Excellent prompt service. Nice atmosphere maybe a little dimly lit because of the oriental window treatment. Very clean and pleasant decor. Full menu with plenty of choices. My wife was stationed in Korea while serving with the military and vouched for authenticity of the food we ordered. She... More

Though my Korean friends strongly recommended this restaurant to me, I think their food is just ok. The service is very good though, make me feel like home. I visited it twice but have not tried their BBQ.

One of the best places to eat. I have been going there for years and never a bad meal. Very fast service. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Don't expect the violinist to sneak around the corner and start playing Korean folk songs. Just great food.

My favorite place. Equally good for a quick lunch or a long dinner with friends . I have been bringing friends here for over 30 years. Never disappointed.

I have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. More importantly, I have taken friends here and they were not disappointed either. The food is authentic( I spent two years in Korea) and the staff is good.

Very good staff, food, and service. My wife and I have frequented this restaurant for a while now. My wife enjoys #12 the shrimp, I have tried most of the dishes, some were just not for me, but over all it is very good food and the portions are enough for most but too much for my wife. The staff... More

Excellent, authentic Korean food. It's what you're looking for. Be patient with the staff, they are very busy and English is not their first language.

Tried their new location on Monticello Avenue last night for dinner. It was wonderful. My husband and I both had the Bibimbap and it was awesome. Can't wait to go back!!

The food for most part was average and some of the dishes were of smaller portion than other places - lunch portion for dinner price. Went after lunch time but our food was slow to come out of the kitchen and the older women was by herself in waiting all the tables. She didn't charge for extra bowl of rice... More

The food here is wonderful, and I mostly enjoy the atmosphere. It's like stepping into an oasis. It's not a modern or up to date decor...I just really enjoy how the windows are obscured from the inside. I love the Soondubu jigae and eat it ALL year round.
