Wonderful suprise

Lucky we have a niece who has an apartment nearby. Very crowded and mostly Korean. Very authentic food according to Korean diners. We had the classic Soft tofu soup with fresh egg, which was delicious with all the traditional sides, including Kim Chee that was spicey, but tolerable to this... read more

We went on a Tuesday night and was seated immediately. A server brought over Korean tea in one minute. We then waited and waited for service. After 10 minutes, we practically tripped an employee to come to our table. He stopped for a second, said, "She'll take your order." We waited another 10 minutes, before another server come to our...

I was craving for hot soup and spicy food and picked My tofu house because of the great reviews it had. It did not disappoint! The servings were huge and the rice was fragrant. Side dishes were topped up upon request or when the server had a chance to peek and see that the plate is empty. It gets crowded... More

I took my parents and siblings out on my dad's birthday on Monday night to this restaurant so my parents could try Korean food. This place has many good reviews on another popular reviewing site so I thought I couldn't go wrong choosing this restaurant over the other Korean joints in town. We ordered 3 soft tofu soups (2 seafoods... More

What can I say, I have a love for being served lots of tiny pickled things at the start of any meal. And honestly we didn't order anything special: just bi bim bap and some tofu noodle hot pot- but those traditional Korean flavors just dance in the mouth! Textures smooth and crispy, tastes salty and savory with a punch... More

I visited during lunch time and there was no wait. We ordered the Korean pancake, which was huge and worth every penny. It arrived at the table in a sizzling cast iron pan and smelled amazing! The texture was perfect--crispy on the bottom, fluffy on the inside and just outrageously good. We also really enjoyed the spicy tofu soup with... More

The food was excellent - loved the tofu soup..the bulgogi was perfect. The chicken was tough in my opinion...but it was still tasty. The serve a nice selection of sides including... More

They are very good at preparing take out... wide range of Korean specialties, all very well done. Pricing is reasonable, and competes well with the wide range of restaurants on Geary and Clement

My first expierence with Korean food, and an excellent one. We had the bibimbap and it came with several sidedishes, of which I liked the fish the most. Service was good and friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for something different than everyday.

I have been there 2 times in the past couple of months and while the food both times was delicious and plentiful the service was not the best. Absent-minded would describe the service we got both times. Water glasses were empty and the so was the tea pot. Once they served you the food they pretty much left you completely... More
