There are only a couple authentic Korean restaurants in the area and this is one to remember. The selection is standard fare, but all very authenticly seasoned and prepared. A definite repeat restaurant.

I came here for a lunch date with a few co-workers. I was left with a full stomach and dreaming until I could come back. Great find!

Our family visited Korean Riverside on spring break. Our children are Korean, so we were excited to find this restaurant within walking distance from our hotel (Hotel Covington - also fabulous). The server was friendly and engaging. We sat at one of the "floor tables"...More

The Hot Stone Bowl is the best. I would bet the rest of their menu is just as appetizing because they always have a good crowd . Reasonably priced , great service and delicious food.

I have had Korean food all over the world in the past 30 years and this is at the top of my list. We discovered this place while I was in law school in the early 90's and it has been a tradition ever since....More

I've eaten at many Korean restaurants in the Midwest and I feel this is the best one in terms of the taste and authenticity. The food is really good and the restaurant is nice.

This restaurant provides solid Korean food. Due to the fire code, they do not provide table-top barbecue. The menu has wide variety but their taste is a little bit on heavy side.
