I visited here with my friend two days ago. Both of us was satisfied with our dishes, Budae jjigae and Sundubu jjigae with Kimchi. The taste was actually beyond my expectation. Since I was disappointed at this restaurant from my first visit about three years ago, I had never been this restaurant. Particularly, eight side dishes were all great. As... More

My wife and I are very big into Korean food, so seeing a Korean Restaurant right across the street from the hotel was awesome. The place was pretty Authentic and had a lot of Korean folks eating there. But for me the food was average. The Bulgogi was dry. The Chop Chae was okay, and the Yakimandu was weird looking... More

Had a terrible experience with this restaurant. The place is in a worn-out strip and there is no customer. I was worried that a robber may come through the door at any moment. Though restaurant is family owned, they show no interest in their very few customers. The waitress there is like a robot, no smile and no service. Price... More

The restaurant has had a few ownership changes over the years. However the food and ambience are the same. Excellent noodle dishes and rice in a hot stone dish which results in crispy and crunchy rice. They serve the small plates as standard. Reasonably priced.

The two of us hadn't been to Korea in over 20 years. We found the restaurant by chance and decided to try it. The food is authentic, the choices varied, and the service was excellent. The outside appearance may look like a hole in the wall, but if you like Korean food, you won't be dissapointed!

Arirang had a few 5 star reviews on google, but from 4 years ago. So we decided to give it a try. When we pulled up into the very old looking strip mall, we instantly started looking online for other restaurants, but since we were all tired of driving we decided to give Arirang a try, even though it looks...

We do like Asian food, and I guess the food was authentic and good, but even though the menu show a list of alcoholic beverages, they do not have a licence. The menu was also confusing as the prices appeared to be very high, but to our surprise it came with many small dishes with appetisers. I guess we had... More

The BimBimBop has flavours without the sauce, the fried dumplings are house-made and are excellently done, and the pancake may be a little thick, but it is nicely made.

This is real good Korean food that has not been watered down to American tastes.

I can't say enough good things about Arirang. The service was very quick and the management went above and beyond with friendly service. Although I am familiar with Korean food, they explained all the different side dishes to me, and explained the Korean customs of eating food. They went around the restaurant several times ensuring all the customers were pleased.... More
