I had lunch with my wife and three teenagers. Staff were very friendly. We ordered Bibimbap, Korean barbeque, miso soup and seafood pancakes. Food was well prepared, seasoned and had an appealing presentation. The restaurant feels quiet and relaxing. We had a good time.

My wife and I come here often when we need a break. Very good food, reasonably priced, and on the quiet side so we can actually talk. The interior is a bit rundown, but we take that as a mark of eccentricity. Get the kimchee...More

Nice place. Eaten there twice, with a good experience both times. Sushi was fresh, though the "kamikaze" was nothing like you would expect from the name. Plenty of parking, and lots of tables inside.

Food here is not limited to Korean. Also has other Asian but the Korean food is excellent. The bibimbab is great, every version. Also the shamui appetizer is terrific. This is one of my locals and I love it.

I went her because we had a goupon and took with some family visiting from out of town. While I liked the variety on the menu, most of us were not impressed with our food. The food was bland in some cases. The restaurant also...More

We decided to try this place since I had just purchased a Groupon for it. Overall this is a decent place but there are so many other ones that are better that we won't be going back anytime soon. Pros: The atmosphere was nice and...More

I am Korean and I went there with non-Koreans, who all enjoyed the bibimbap...but it was a pale version of the real thing. I saw someone else's noodle dish - also looked like a shortcut version of the real thing. My spicy-tofu stew was quite...More
