Incredible food!

Food is consistently delicious. The place is only open for limited hours each week, but offers a diverse menu at a reasonable price. Seating is awfully cozy and the smell inundates your clothes, so I recommend dining al fresco if weather permits.

I spent much of my career outside of the US, much of it in Asia. I like a lot of foods from different countries and Korean food is right there at the top of the list. I have eaten Korean food in numerous places in the US including Korea Town in Garden Grove and LA, CA as well as Pallisades/Fort... More

We love this restaurant. The best we have found in the area. Love the crackling rice. The care put in to the prep of meals is evident. We look forward to each visit.

This woman knows how to make a sauce (or ten), and her food is always fresh and tasty. The cafe has limited hours, so check ahead to see if it is open.

Amazing that's all I can say. We stumbled upon this place while driving through downtown E-bethton and decided to give it a try. Had the Red Chicken and it was for sure sure one the best Asian dishes I' ever had. All four of us were very full and happy when we left. Will be back very soon.

First visit today. Wife had been telling me how good it is for a while now. Very good and quite a pleasant surprise. Even had 82 year old family member, who is very set in her ways say it was the best Asian food she had ever eaten. Just the right amount of spice to add great flavor. Will be... More

Great food and unique menu. Food is always fresh and consistent. The only negative comments would be with the limited seating and poor ventilation. The odors from the kitchen in the small space can be quite overwhelming.
