Julia serves beautiful Korean food, always tasty, and as authentic as she can with limited local food supplies. Beautiful decor.

We ordered beef bulgogi, and several other dishes. I ordered a pork belly soup but when I got my soup there was hardly any pork in it only mostly vegetables. My son liked what he ordered but 3 of us (my husband ,me and another son), were not so satisfied with what we got. The place looks dim and when... More

Ted K, Manager at J Korean Restaurant, responded to this review

We are really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your order. It looks like you ordered "Kimchi Jigae" in which we put small quantity of pork just to make Kimchi taste better. Realizing our menu descriptions leave room for improvement, we will look into it to minimize the chance of misleading. Thank you for your review and hope we... More

Came back to our table often and with such kind graciousness normally only experienced in very prestigious restaurants. He treated us like royalty. I was wowed in this tiny place by the service. The food... More

I had the bibimbap and my colleague had the beef bulgogi. A number of sides are provided to the table (kimchi and others). No concerns about the taste of the dishes, they are very authentic. Although we did arrive quite late, (8PM for what we thought was a 10PM closing time) our server was terse and seemed eager to kick... More

Service ok, food good, but nothing extraordinary, but it was pricey, wasn't good enough for the money. Don't think I'll be back

I was born and raised in Vancouver so I feel I have high standards when it comes to all types of Asian food and this place does not disappoint. By far, the best Korean food I've ever eaten!! Our kids also love it and beg us to go here every week. Food is made from scratch, the service is always... More
