My family and I have been coming here since I was a kid, for special celebrations. It's something I very much look forward to. I've never brought someone here who didn't immediately add this as their favorites as well. The food is worth the price....More

This restaurant has been a family favorite for years. The cooks never fail to amaze us with their dexterity and creativity! The food was excellent, too. The parking was plentiful and prices were not too high.

We used to go to Rokbonki quite often with friends for birthday celebrations, but have not been there in quite a while. Now I see why. To us the experience has slipped quite a bit. We went there for New Years Eve. We had a...More

We were there for a holiday get together. Food was very good. They have changed a few things that we were a little disappointed about. They used to serve you bean sprouts and now they serve noodles. They were fine but we preferred the sprouts....More
