“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Food is a work of art! Took my daughter there for her birthday. They made her a special hand roll with spicy tuna. Food was above average. Try the Blue Chicken platter or Teri-Chicken Soba noodles!!

“Unexpected wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

It is not very often I truly love the meal when eating out. Blown away by the freshness and quality. It's a hidden gem. Only wish I had found this place sooner. Not for everyone but wonderful bliss to me

“Wild & funky Korean/Thai/Chinese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Ok, what bugs me about this restaurant is that she keeps changing the menu. They used to have this fantastic soup called Pacific Soup with all kinds of seafood in it and a great fish broth. Then she took out some of the seafood and added tofu. Tofu!!! Ick!!!

And some of the food is quite expensive for what you get.

We quit going there because we couldn't get our favorites anymore.

“Horrible customer service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

First we wanted to change an order of rice for noodles and were told its usually $1.00 extra then told it was gonna be $4.00 extra even though we didn't want the rice, im guessing because they make rice ahead of time an is easier to take a scoop of rice and put it on a plate. We were not pleased with our dish after taking one bite of it and asked to order something else, we were told we would have to pay for both dishes. Stay away from ordering different things on the menu if you have your favorites because they will not cater to the customer, it was made clear to me that we are not valued we are just another dollar.

“A small slice of home cooking....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Well, Korean home cooking. Yes the place is small, yes you would never expect authentic Korean food in Elizabethton, yes it is delicious! The first time my (vegetarian) sister in law wanted to take the family here i thought she was a bit crazy, but i have never been disappointed in any (and i have tried many) dishes here. I loved surprises when it come to food, and this is one of the best.
