“You can do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Perhaps I ordered the wrong thing, but I was disappointed. I ordered the BBQ short ribs and chicken combo. I assume that I was served rib meat but am not certain because the bone was missing. The meat had a good flavor but was as much fat as it was meat. The chicken was plentiful, but lacking on flavor. The tofu in the miso soup was off. Rather than firm, it was spongy and did not taste good. In my opinion, not worth the $13. In all fairness, the restaurant appeared to be clean. The staff was friendly and the service was good.

“Terrible Food and Horrible Customer service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This Restaurant had dry chicken, soup that tasted like dish water and the kimchi served as a side was about 1 teaspoonful.

The staff stood around and continually got our order wrong. Never once asked how our meal was.

I would never eat at this place again!

“Delicious Korean flavored food and rice bowls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Fast fun and great flavors. I tried the chicken rice bowl last week at the new place in the 700 block of Main downtown and it was fabulous. Cost was about 799. My husband ordered a more expensive clay pot item and felt it was not worth the extra approximately 5 bucks but also very good. Loved the interior of the restaurant and the staff kept it clean. Good spacing of tables and both booths and chairs that felt comfy. Tables were modern too. I noticed the manager (Owner) was watching all of the different aspects of the operation and felt that was a plus.
