So-so

Suboptimal Korean food. Decor is ok. Service is suboptimal as well. Sashimi was very fresh. We did not try rolls. Go only if you must have some Korean food.

Our waiter was the kindest woman ever. She agreed to make the bbq marinated chicken spicy (like the pork is traditionally) for me and she kept our condiments full. She also recommended the shrimp pancake over the green onion, and we were glad she did because it was tasty...a lot like shrimp tempura in a pancake w some onions and... More

Went in here and was ignored for fifteen minutes. Then when I complained the owner told me, "It's not my problem." I couldn't believe it.

After passing by this restaurant many times I decided to give it a try. I went to the Sushi bar, and after a long wait, an older lady who seemed to be acting as the hostess came and gave me a menu. I ordered a glass of wine to which she frowned at me and left. She came back with... More

I am relatively new to sushi and one member of our group does not like it. The menu options satisfied everyone's palete. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent.

We were traveling with a native Korean and wanted to change it up one night. Totally satisfied with the freshness and flavors of the food. Grilled the chicken, bulgogi etc--very fresh and very tasty. The service was very very sweet--our waiter was from Guam and could not have been nicer. Definitely recommend it!
