“Good meal guaranteed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

We love the Ka lbi short ribs here- always served sizzling hot with lots of sides- tasty! The chicken and spicy pork Korean bar-b-que entrees are delicious, also. This last time, we tried a seafood soup- was served piping hot and was enjoyable, but could barely "count" the seafood in the claypot (stated "oyster" but received one mussel; the one shrimp was very small with its head attached; one clam). Whenever we don't feel like cooking, we know that a good meal is guaranteed at Korea House.

“Go for lunch, not dinner!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

It's only worth it if you avail of the lunch specials which is about $10 per person. We went for dinner the other night, and it wasn't good value for money. I thought the kalbi (barbecued short ribs) were overpriced at $19.95; the fried squid wasn't that good either, it was just batter with a bit of squid; the fried oyster was nothing great either. At least they were generous with their banchan. We ended up spending $50+ (excluding tip). Boo!
