This eatery delights and surpasses all the me too franchises, hopeful standards in sterile new malls, and "meh" joints that abound in the area. Think Cajun-Korean well executed delicious dishes by smart young quality fresh food addicted cooks and servers. You've got to look at the menu and pick, say a "Korean bowl" or po' boy, or gumbo, and enjoy... More

We are from out of town, recently traveling in Peru where we had so many culinary delights that I have been underwhelmed with the sameness of many culinary efforts since returning home. That was until our local family took us to this jewel for Saturday lunch. The service was great, very personalized. We made our dietary constraints known so they... More

My husband and I travelled quite a bit and tried a range of very good restaurants. This is definitely a jem restaurant in Sterling, VA. A young staff, with a relaxed almost hippyish attire but professional. As for the food, it is excellent. If you want to splurge for the "catch of the day" seafood entree, please do, you will...

Our server was rude and inattentive. She'd be a better magician with her having mastered the disappearing act. Took 25 minutes just to get drinks. The food is overpriced & mediocre. The sweet potato fries were good but not sure how you can mess that up. It was a 2 hour dining experience which consisted of mostly waiting for our... More

When we were first seated our server announced he was a cook filling in - and wasn't a great server. How wrong he was! Very accommodating and supremely knowledgable about the food, drinks and even where they sourced their coffee. The food was exceptional as was the experience. Plan to go again quite soon!!

I can't get enough of this place! I have to admit, I was a little "scared" the first time I visited...I heard it was a fusion of Modern Korean and Cajun and was at first hesitant. Since that day, we've probably visited about 50 other times...no kidding. The place is small so MAKE SURE you have a reservation. The service... More

Who would guess that this gem is nestled in a strip shopping center? Amazing. We had the Korean pot roast sliders, Chicken Ssam, & foie gras dumplings. They were delicious. They have an extensive cocktail, wine & beer list. We finished off our meal with cobbler which was blueberry & huckleberry topped with ice cream. Perfect late lunch date on... More
