Well I see that no one has rated this place in a while. This couple have worked hard during 2020 to keep us fed and their business floating. They have turned out many great meals. This remains one of my favorite restaurant. The food is...really good. I eat here at least three time a month. They do it all as a couple and turn out great hot food. Like all resturants in this area they have raised prices and that will affect and effect our eating outMore

Had dinner with my family there. First time I had Korean cuisine. It was ok but not as good as Chinese, Thai or other oriental cuisine. It was a little pricey too. I think there are other better dining options in the area.

After five months of not eating out or even ordering take-out or delivery due to COVID-19 I chose this place to call in an order for carry out. Bad, bad mistake on my part!! I called the order in at 6 PM and was told...to pick it up in 20 minutes. I arrived in 15 minutes and stood and waited for 45 minutes only to be told they only had three of the five items I ordered. Several people were also there waiting and waiting for their orders too. Why wasn’t I informed when I called that they didn’t have what I wanted?? Then to top it off, the food was cold and tasted awful after I finally got it! That’s the last time this “local” patronizes this place!More

When you walk into this small, local, Asian eatery it doesn't look like much. The environment is plainly decorated. Usually there is one lady serving, ringing up bills, and basically doing everything (pretty sure that she is the owner). The service can tend to be...a little slow so don't go if you are in a hurry. But once you receive your food it is very good. I recommend this place for indoor eating if you have time, or for take out if you're in a hurry.More

This is one my favorite restaurants. This couple work hard and do a great job. The restaurant is always clean and the food is good The food is always hot and fresh and reasonable in serving size and price. I continue to recommend this place...above all others in the area. Come in and enjoy your time together and encourage this couple when you leave. It is hard to do all they do by themselves, without a thank you once in a while. You may not think they notice, but it will surprise you when you order General Chicken and she remembers that that “you like extra spicy”More

The Bulgogi and Spicy shrimp combo is top shelf. I pretty much get it every time I go there. My wife is a big fan of the vegetable plate. Service can sometimes be on the slower side cause it’s just a two person operation but...well worth the wait.More

Ate there today. Realized that if there are more than two tables of people, service is slow. Given that husband and wife are chef, waitress, server, cashier and bottle washer, they do pretty good I imagine that being in a tourist town in the fall...may make it hard to afford help at today’s wages. Read earlier review about owner not being friendly, not sure that “friendly” have the same meaning in our cultures. So I give a little here, but still be Ozark Friendly anyway I did notice that they have gone to “winter hours” and are closed Sunday and Mondays now Overall this is a very good ace to eat One more note. The Water is not good. May be the ice maker needs filter changed. Might order water without ice or bottled waterMore

I love the salad and General Tsao chicken here. I tried chicken katsu (breaded cutlet) and of course the General Tsao. You can choose 1 entree or get 2 or 3 entrees if You order the combination. My son had the garlic butterfly shrimp and...hot General Tsao. Both our favorites are still the General Tsao. They hand prepare the salad which is just lettuce and cabbage shredded , but they make a home made dressing you can't get anywhere else that really makes that salad Delicious. Let the dressing sit on it a few minutes. Since all of the food is hand prepared you need to allow more time if you are on a tight schedule . It doesn't take forever to prepare, but they aren't McDonald's either ! Usually 1 hour for entire visit is sufficient . so if you only get a half hour lunch order in advance or get it to go. Also don't miss the appetizer vegetable tempura. It's so light and airy even though it's deep fried !! Husband does the cooking and wife runs the front. Her English isn't the best so some think she is rude . I think it is just her struggle with the language .More
