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

I was a bit puzzled at the other comment, because the food blew me away. we stayed at red roof inn and we stopped by to get some korean food that we were deprived of for a few days and this restaurant provided us with real authentic home cooked meals. My partner and I ordered chicken bulgogi, kimchi stew, and... More

Ok food, moderate decor and pricey small portioned food for a 2 star restaurant.
