We tried bone marrow soup dishes. Both of us enjoyed immensely to the point to ask how they made the soup so thick, tasty and creamy. I insisted that they may have added a thickening agent, while my wife believed otherwise. Trust that she's right.

Hands down best sullungtang soup I've ever had. The beef and bones have been expertly cooked to the point of the broth becoming milky white. Hearty and always leaves you feeling healthier than when you came in! Get it and you won't regret it!

GaHwa is famous for its seolleongtang, a delicate ox-bone broth soup. Most folks are familiar with Korea's fiery dishes but this is a very different dish and it is absolute perfection here: rich yet light, flavorful yet mild. I've never had it better. Folks have...commented on GaHwa's excellent kimchi and radish kimchi (kkakdugi) and yes, it is definitely some of the best out there. Great balance of spicy, sweet and funky flavors. Their bindaetteok (savory mung bean pancake) is done to crispy-but-not-greasy perfection. So many other restaurants fall flat with this humble dish. Nice selection of soju, makgeolli and beer. Attentive, friendly staff. Nice, clean atmosphere with a one-of-a-kind bark ceiling which makes the restaurant feel like a modern cabin. The location is a bit of a walk from Flushing's Main Street 7 station but a meal here is well worth the walk. Can't wait to go back!More

Grabbed dinner here again and got the oxtail soup, dumpling soup and spicy fried pork. My family and I all enjoyed the meal. I really like their turnip kimchi. The waitresses won't be chatty, but they are attentive and efficient. Seeing we needed to get...the boys fed, that worked for us.More

Grabbed dinner here and ordered the duk gook (rice cake soup), naeg myun (cold buckwheat noodles) and bibimbap. The food was all good and since it wasn't busy the food came out quickly.

We have been curious about this place for a while-- 24 hour Korean restaurant with an A rating for cleanliness in a strip of Union St with a Chinese carry-out, a supermarket, and a bagel shop--in other words a part of Flushing that is not...ground zero for fabulous restaurant food--about a 15-20 minute walk from Flushing Main St station (or a short ride on the Q44 bus)... And when an occasion presented itself (nephew's birthday!!), the whole extended family headed out for a big meal... The menu has maybe 20 items--this isn't the kind of place where they serve everything you could possibly think of in a particular national genre... The kimchi provided before the meal was simple--but crunchy and thoroughly fermented (we devoured, they brought refills!)... The bulgogi stew with rice cake was delicious--but there wasn't enough rice cake in it to be noted on the menu! ... The stone pot bibimbap was outstanding--lots of good stuff to mix in (and both the vegetarian and meat versions were very nice)--the rice got nice and crunchy as it should and the flavors of the add ins blended really well... Everything tasted fresh and no msg detected. We enjoyed everything we ordered--and we ordered a lot since there were 8 of us. The waitress spoke Chinese and Korean (an asset in this neighborhood)--as well as English. The waitress and busboy kept our cups full of barley tea--which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The staff seemed very tolerant and the ambience was casual--so in that regard it is a great place for a family with kids who like spicy food... Atmosphere was simple and homey--with gestures toward Korean rustic (like logs on the ceiling). It would be a good destination for a special occasion like an evening out with colleagues, a teen birthday, a family gathering--i.e. the kind of place you want for casual festivity with great food and low key atmosphere.More

Looking for Soo Long Tang close to Long Island? Go no further than Union Street in Flushing. Beyond the soup there is great traditional Korean Fare. Bim bim bap is excellent as well, service is prompt and polite. Enjoy the homey environment.
