We wanted to try a Korean place as a change and went here with fingers crossed. This is a place where you order at the cashier and they call you when your food is ready. The food was somewhat cold when we got it and...More

This place is opened limited hours, I think only at lunch. Closes for a week at a time here and there. And is ALWAYS packed. The students, many Koreans, start lining up 30 minutes before they open to get a spot. Why? Because the food...More

Seoul Grill has a small menu, however the food is excellent. You place your order and are given a pager, when the pager goes off, you get your food. Each meal comes with the traditional kim chee and bonchon. My favourites are the bee bim...More
