We were there on a Friday night, and the place was not very crowded. It is in an industrial area but right next to the massive headquarters of U S Public Health Service. We had Tang Su Yook with chicken, and it was really good. The service was excellent and fast. Prices reasonable. We will definitely go there again.

Some friends invited us to eat here and they took the lead on ordering as they were regulars and know the dishes. We saw only two people working yet they attended all the tables quickly and efficiently. I'm not really versed in Korean fare, but it certainly seemed to be authentic....and quite tasty. The four of us shared 7 or... More

We dined on a Saturday early afternoon and there was only one other two-some in the place. It's out of the way and in an odd location and not much to look at from the outside. From the reviews, we expected something good, but were pretty well disappointed on all levels. We are avid fans of authentic Asian cuisine and... More

We went with another couple and ordered seafood pancakes as appetizer for dinner. Four of us agreed that this dish was wonderful and worthwhile for re-visits in the future.

This is an out of the way hole in the wall type of place. Lived near the place for years and never even knew it existed. The food is good. They got all the classic korean foods. Prices are ok. The walls could use an update. I like the table and chairs. This isn't a place where English is the... More

Watermelon Cocktail Soju and Korean Barbeque Ribs and Steamed Dumplings for an appetizer. It was all so tasty. Service fast and friendly. We only wish we lived here so we could sample the whole menu.

Went after seeing this restaurant featured as one of Washington's 100 best cheap eats in Washingtonian magazine. We had galbi, mandu dumplings and a seafood pancake. We usually go to Lighthouse Tofu for Korean food. The galbi and pancake were good and better than Lighthouse. The mandu was unimpressive. Service was friendly. The biggest negative was the price. Galbi was... More

This is the type of excellent restaurant that will make you feel like a cool local for visiting. Very plain facade, but inside are tastes and smells to make you weep with joy! We had the vege pancake appetizer (could have fed up to four people) and bibimbap. It was so good we ate like it was Thanksgiving, and we... More

I had never heard of this restaurant, but decided to give it a try with a groupon! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a place that you might think driving past since the exterior isn't much to look at, and it is in the middle of an industrial park. Park and walk inside - you'll be... More
