I've been here many times and all I can say is that this place is one of my favourite Korean places in the US. LOTS of side dishes and the boss is super friendly. Food is great. I recommend the beef bulgolgi, ginseng chicken and the kimchi jigae (soup). Usually crowded but you probably don't need to get a reservation... More

First of all, their foods, and services are perfect. We ate spicy pork, and it was fantastic, and we we bought their mocci, and I loved it.

Great location and good food. The variety offered was plentful and the food was good. I had the Bibimbap. It was a huge portion. The service was also very attentive. The only minor negative is that they do not accept Amex which I use when for business trips.

We are new to the area and are out exploring and trying new cuisine. Soon's Tofu and Korean BBQ has made it to our list of favorites. We've been there twice already and can't wait to go back again. Their banchan is decent not extensive like some other places we've been to, but every single item in the banchan was... More

I like Korean food and was staying in Foster City for some time and couldn't go too far. Service is decent but food is just OK. It tastes watered down, too sweet. I've tried a variety of food over the period: grilled ribs, cold buckwheat noodle, spicy rice cake , sauteed squid, and of course, soft tofu stew. Over and... More

Just visited this place and I had a sticker shock. Compare to the Korean restaurant in Marina center in foster city where both restaurants have similar settings and the quality of food is similar. But this place is pricier. Compare to Kaya in Belmont, the setting of this place is not as nice and food quality is not as good.... More

My wife and I were shopping at 99 Ranch Market, and noted the Soon's next door. It was only 11 am, so we grabbed a table in front of Starbucks and read our books. By 11:30, the restaurant was beginning to fill up with lunchtime customers, so we headed in. It's a big open space, plenty of space between tables,... More

This is the new Korean restaurant that opened next door to Ranch 99 in Foster City. I have been here several times and the service is excellent. The combination dishes are a bargain and can be shared by two people. Price range is about $10-$14 for the standard Korean faire. The service is excellent, with attentive waiters that keep your...

This is the second time we have been here and both times were outstanding. The servers were VERY helpful the first time - we really didn't have much experience with Korean food. This time, we came with our daughter and her friend from college who went to high school in Korea. She said it was among the best she's had... More
