“Deliciously simple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We make sure to stop by every time we are in town and have the desire for great Korean food. The food is delicious and the staff are pleasant. Nothing fancy, but worth your time.

“Authentic Orean Experience...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Definitely has the 'Korea' feel to it-very much like a typical small restaurant almost anywhere in Korea with the same taste and atmosphere-very difficult to describe unless you've spent time there.
I visited twice during a business trip and was impressed with the authenticity both nights-even down to the quirky slide show on the TV by the cash desk and the sappy 'K-Pop' being played. I had bibimbap-Korean rice hot pot-- the first night and Soon Dubu Jjigae-- spicy tofu stew--the second night, both very good and not 'altered' for Western tastes.
I used my basic Korean to order and the servers really appreciated that! Very friendly once you get beyond the language barrier-just like Korea-I was the only Caucasian in there both nights-very evocative of my time in Korea.

“good cheap food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2010

We ordered bibimbap and pork on a hotplate; the pork was a bit oily but both quite good and the portions were big enough. The lady who helped us was not very talkative or friendly but the food came fairly quick, included free tea, and for less than $22 we had a nice Korean dinner for two!
