As a fan of both Korean food in general and Korean tacos in particular, I was eager to try this place, and my expectations were easily met. The beef taco (flour tortilla with Korean barbecued beef and Korean vegetables) was fantastic, just bursting with flavor, and the crispy tilapia taco was also first-rate. I'd also mention an appetizer we loved: "sticky chicky," which was small pieces of sesame-crusted chicken in an apricot glaze, with cooked red onions and jalapenos. A sampler of "banchan," Korean vegetables, made a nice side dish. The drink menu is also innovative and inexpensive, and my mango-jalapeno martini was really good -- and not too hot or spicy, but just right, and only $5. The whole bill per person, with drinks and tip, was just $24.
Check out the menu online: they have variations on more standard Korean fare, but the Korean tacos are worth a trip out of your way.
The place is attractively decorated in a modern style, and although there was modern alt-rock on the sound system, it was not too loud, so it's easy to hold a conversation. Service was cordial and quick.
If you like Korean and/or creative fusion, this place is a must. We needed no reservation on a Sat. evening. It is an easy walk from the Midtown or North Ave. MARTA stops, one block east of Peachtree Street. It's also easily walkable from the hotels on West Peachtree, such as the Renaissance and the Indigo.
