We have been here many times before, but this particular review is about the service: We arrived towards the end of the lunch hour rush (about 2PM). Before we even made it to the front door, the owner/hostess/waitlady greeted us and escorted inside, welcoming us. Every table in the resteraunt was taken except for one, which she promptly showed us... More

I don't live in this part of the country. I came from New England this evening; the first item in our agenda after leaving the Los Angeles International Airport was to stop at this eatery. The lady of this establishment greeted us as if we were old friends of many decades. And, yet, we were here only twice in our... More

We understood that this place is always mobbed based on other's reviews. We deliberately went there at 3 pm on a Tuesday. We were greeted by the owner, grandmother herself. Within 30 seconds we got mocgirl-li. We were served 14 varieties of ban-chan, that included a small dish of ttukbogi. Some of the ban-chan were rare in the usual Korean... More

I'm a local and go here all the time. The food is consistently excellent. Best on menu are the noodle (guksu) dishes. The hot stone bibimbap is also outstanding, among the best I've had in LA. Service can be very slow if it's busy, but the nice lady who runs the place tries her best with limited staff. Definitely recommend... More

People have told me that the Korean food in LA beats that in Bay Area, and if Western Doma is a reflection, I am a believer now! This is a hole in the wall restaurant, but the food is so good - we had their kalbi, seafood tofu soup and soba noodles - all of them were excellent (the cuts... More

If I lived in LA, this would be on my regular list of favs! We ate here in the middle of the afternoon and were the only customers, although more arrived later on. Service was great. The super sweet and polite older lady who waited on us made some suggestions since we wanted a "light" meal. Light meal in a... More

If you like Korean food other than bbq than this is a great spot. Everything on the menu is tasty. Only draw back is that it takes kinda long

The Chicken Noodle Soup is AMAZING, the raving reviews are completely well deserved. I also tried their Cold Noodles, which the owner/waitress did not recommend, she urged me to get something else and said that the noodles didn't taste nice, I thought that was a bit strange but got it anyway - it tasted fine. Service is often very very... More
