A nice Korean woman runs this place so it it legitimate Korean food. I love the hot pots and the kimchi is great. It's good and spicy. I really liked the seaweed she has. After a brief trip to Seoul this place helped cure my need for Korean food. I haven't tried any other dishes but I'm sure I'll be... More

Everytime I visit family in the Monterey Bay area, I eat here. I've tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. The kimchi is fresh and I believe made by the owner. My favorites are the kimchi pancakes and kimchi soup. You can ask for the soup to be extra spicy if you want. This is a family owned restaurant.... More

I splurged and had the Galbi (beef short ribs). The meat was plentiful and so tender you could just take a bite off the portion without a knife. Which was just as well, since all I had were my chopsticks. The meal started with a bowl of miso soup. The entree was accompanied by 8 banchan dishes and a bowl... More

We just discovered this little Korean restaurant. Good parking, cozy dining room (seats 36), great service, fair prices, wonderfully delicious Korean food! Definitely coming back!! Restrooms are outside the restaurant, around the corner, but decent enough. Water heater in the women's bathroom keeps the room warm too. The side dishes are tasty and the server keeps 'em coming. The appetizers... More

As other reviewers have noted, the food is good and plentiful. The staff are very friendly, polite, and eager to please. There are some familiar dishes, such as marinated barbecue pork (which I got and liked) and numerous traditional Korean foods, such as ones made with pig's feet. The price seemed low for the quantity and quality. The main course... More

Really good home style Korean food. Served in abundance, the lady proprietor has a perpetual smile and does almost everything in the front of the house. We had several dishes including kimchi pancakes, vegetarian bi bim bop and my wife had a delicious bulgogi. Priced reasonably, too. We've eaten in Seoul many times and this place really takes us back... More

Wonderful Korean restaurant with excellent food and fair prices. Good service and generous portions, with plenty of meat. At the moment, probably our go to favorite for mom. They are a small place, so lunch hour can get too busy. Enjoy the table top cooking! Family share style meals available, too!

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat; the food was of good quality and tasted homemade. The service was a not polished and very casual but attentive. We prefer the AYCE style of KBBQ when looking for this style but it was of decent quality.
