Ambience: 4/5. Good Korean style decor with nice quiet music, but nothing overly impressive. Service: 3/5. The waiter was courteous and fast but approached the table way too often, and barely spoke English. Food: 5/5. If you crave Korean food, that's your place. The meals...More

First of all, it is overpriced. The plates are not big and I have been to much better Korean restaurants. We went there once and I would not go back. The BBQ is ridiculously small, not enough for a five years old kid.

We are very sorry to hear you didn't not have a good experience - our prices are actually targeted at being comparable if not most of the time lower than restaurants in the bergen couunty area and NYC. ~Keo Ku Family~
