We went to this restaurant for the main reason of trying out Korean food and we went there about 1 1/2 hours before they could close up for afternoon. They didn't have most of the things that we wanted to try out and hence we were left out with having whatever that was available. But still they took a lot... More

We were there for December 31st night dinner. Surprisingly many tables were empty. Pros - local staff was good Cons - Two Koreans who are owning the restaurant don't care about locals. Very unprofessional and those two are not for hospitality industry. - They told their kitchen close at 9.15 PM and make the order before that. They use all... More

As this was the first time we visited a Korean Restaurant, we eagerly waited for the staff to give us some tips. I was very disappointed with the service received as they didn't even take time to speak to us despite requesting for some guidance. As a result we ordered some dishes which really were not suited for our taste... More

Hadn't tried this place all this time because of it's outside appearance and the dodgy neighborhood. It really looks like a seedy Karaoke club but it's decent restaurant serving good food. They serve Beer. Other spirits can be brought in free of corkage. They have cooked dishes as well as stuff you can cook yourself at the table on the... More
