“best soon tofu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

In Koreatown, this place has the best soon tofu. Order the regular spicy version with pork and you won't be disappointed! Service is generally quite good, food is cheap and fast. Can't ask for better.

“Great Bibimbap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

It was my first experience with Korean food, so I can't really compare. All I can say is it was very tasty and the place looked really authentic.
Really cheap (like CD 10 each) and totally worth visiting.
The surroundings are also very nice - we went to a Korean Market and I was thtrilled by it.

“Best Korean FOod in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This place had the best soon doo boo (soft tofu soup) I have ever had in N. America. The best was in Korea. Great prices and good fast service. I also love that you can pay in US dollars.

“Delicious traditionall Korean food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Went there with a friend from Toronto who is Korean so it came highly recommended. The menu is not extensive at all, there are 9 items to choose from but that's why people go there, to eat that traditional Korean stew. I had the dumplings and beef one and LOVED it. It was like nothing I had before, it was my first time trying Korean food and it really is different from any other Asian food I tried before. You choose your stew and it comes with purple rice, 4 different "appetisers" and an egg you have to break into your boiling hot soup so it poaches it. Definitely something to try! As for service, don't expect to be waited on, you'll need to hail the waiter to order or get extra refills of the appetisers, but as long as you know that, you'll be fine.

“Second Time - still good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Second time we visited Toronto and likewise to this place. A very good tofu stews and rice pots. Always enjoy the homemade taste so far away from home.
