“Decent food Not unique”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The atmosphere is ok, and the wait staff struggles with English. I asked for a slight variation on a dish and was refused.

The menu was not impressive, although it had some very original Korean dishes on it. The sauces were oily.

I suggest a better choice elsewhere for Korean food.

“Best Korean food we've had hands down.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Please don't let the exterior fool you...my wife and I have found that when looking for good Korean food the more bland the outside, the better the actual food. That said - it can be a chore to find this place - right off Rt. 1 in Edison on Old Post Rd. - trouble being that Old Post Rd crosses Rt 1 twice and in true Jersey fashion - you can't make a left onto either from the actual left lane. It is in a strip mall with a large indoor mini putt place and a Shop Rite.

Once in, the food is amazing. As stated by someone else - the noodles are perfect. My wife in particular gets...literally every time...the jjajangmyun is perfect each time. We also almost always get the spicy rice cakes/bar (ddukbokkie) - which again....perfect every time.

I'm not sure if the other contributor was there during a different owner/cook - but the other dishes are also simply awesome. In particular the tangsuyuk (Beef or pork) and the Jeyuk Bokkeum Kimchi are out of the world good. If you are not sold - my wife and I drive up regularly from Philly - about an hour and a half one way - because the food is THAT good. It is well worth the trip wherever you are coming from!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2008

If you love noodles, this place is wonderful. If you want other Korean specialties like soon doo boo, go somewhere else, because I thought that their non-noodle dishes were lacking. The noodles, however, are fantastic and are the best around.
