Shared the Kimchi Stew and Cumin Lamb. The broth of the stew was rich and robust. The white rice was a perfect accompaniment. Authentic and it did not talk down to a western audience. Enough spice to make it uncomfortable for those who don’t understand...More

Sat at the chefs counter top/table with three friends. Chefs menu had lots of tasty dishes covering much of what was on the full menu. Each dish was described to us as it was served. Staff was great and enjoyed every bite.

My friend and I went to Chiko while in DC for the weekend. We wanted a casual restaurant that still had excellent food, and this blew us away. The chicken wings were extra crispy, all of the pickled veggies were incredibly well-seasoned and perfectly crunchy,...More

We were with a group of three friends and ordered 3 dishes. They all were delicious. One dish was vegetariand and we doubted we ordered that. No problem swiftly another dis was complimentary provided. Four tastefull dishes for the reasonable price of three.

Although the caviar delivery site disingenuously claims to be free, it slaps an 18% ‘service charge’ - rather dishonest, in my opinion

We snagged reservations at the bar for the tasting menu. The appetizer "tower" had such tasty tidbits. We continued to sample the specialities of the house and by the end just were so sated - but happy. I do love this cuisine. The setting reflects...More

A decent taxi ride from city centre is this superb quick bite place, you need to order and pay at the cashier first, then get a table (only a handful) and wait for your items to be served. Food quality tasty and fresh, prices reasonable,...More

I had the pleasure of sitting at the Chef table and sampled almost the entire menu! It was a great "fusion" of cuisines and will not disappoint any foodie. Don't let the décor fool you; You might think it's your typical "take-out" joint, but it...More

The food is amazing. The prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is totally casual. We snagged reservations at the four person bench facing the small kitchen so we got a cooking show as well. These seats book 30 days in advance at 12:01 AM. There...More
