Used to go here for many years despite the ever growing crowds but it was always worth it...until now. The bottomline is that they are clearly skimping on all the soup entrees, the side dishes, the rice, and the appetizers while also having increased the prices – and these negatives were nowhere nearly compensated for by a few bright spots...

We went there for lunch. Service was great, very efficient. I found that the flavors though were mispronounced in the dishes we ordered. Our bulgogi were good but with some pieces tough and some being tender. Must say that I have had much better ones before. The tofu hot stone bibimbap rice was overcooked and again, flavors were missing. The... More

I loved this authentic Korean restaurant. The food was excellent. I enjoyed all the little sides that came with the meal. I would recommend ordering a pancake to share with the table. The soups and bbq were awesome! The parking lot fills up fast, so you may need to park across the street and walk there. Don't park in the... More

My mom and I tried So Kong Dong because it is on the "Eater Atlanta - 25 Iconic Atlanta Dishes" list. When we entered at 1ish on Saturday we were seated immediately. We ordered the Bulgogi (the dish we were supposed to try) along with a tofu soup (seafood) and rib combo. Overall we really enjoyed the experience, our service... More

We tried their seafood variety toufu hot pot and it was very good,it comes with white rice with no choice for bean rice as this is what we really like (and many similar place offer them,it comes in a stoneware to keep it hot) but this place comes in a stainless steel bowl. The delicacy they brought with the meal... More

First time at this place and there were a couple of things that didn't make my visit as pleasant as I would have wanted it to be. It looked a little busy when we walked in so we waited a few minutes to be seated. Menu was easy to look through and to choose from. Most of my friends and... More

Visited this place during a business trip to Atlanta. I had a combination which consists of a big bowl of soup and a small plate of grilled Korean ribs, which cost around $20.00. The food was pretty good and came with the usual samplings of Korean side dishes. The service was fast despite being full of customers. If my waitress... More

If I went back I would just get the Korean BBQ ribs. They were excellent. $30+ for lunch for two was too expensive. My husband, who is more experienced with Korean BBQ, said this was very expensive and would have cost half as much elsewhere. The appetizers were interesting. Staff was very friendly and helpful to me who had never... More
