First, the good. Sam Hawk's food is very good. I ordered the Bibimbap in a stone bowl and it was really one of the best I've ever had! As a vegetarian, I ordered it with tofu and there's little I would do to make it better. A friend ordered a beef dish - Bulgogi - that he loved. Also in... More

I love the beef Bulgogi, and the bibimbap here. Get the bibimbap in the stone bowl. Worth the extra dollar. If you don't like your bulgogi on the sweet side, get the pork instead of the beef. This place always seems to have a small staff. So while they are friendly and helpful, expect it to take awhile to be... More

We have never been disappointed, and no other Korean joint in Utah can compare, at least to me. The only downside is that it does take a while, being so authentic.

This little restaurant is small, hidden, and what many would refer to as a "hole in the wall". But let me tell you something, the food is amazing. I took my family here to experience a new cuisine (I have been here before but was looking to expand their palate's). We had a culinary experience there with the waiter providing... More

Sam Hawk is a family friendly Korean restaurant located in Provo, Utah. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, as it is located in a strip mall, but if you enjoy traditional Korean food, you're in for a real treat. The food is authentic and handmade, so it might take a little longer than one of those chain... More

Been eating there for the last ten years. Service is a bit slow since everything is prepared from scratch, which makes the food quality exceptional. Food as good as some of the best restaurants when visiting in Seoul, Osan, and Taegu Korea.

Such a cute little place, and out of the way. The food is so delicious, very good Korean food in large portions. The price is right. The service is personable.

I went this month with a friend. We started with the dumplings. They were very good. I had the pork bilgogi. It had a pleasant heat to it. I really liked the flavor. My guest had the the beef short ribs. They were sweeter but also had great flavor. I will go back.

This is a favorite place for our family. We love the most of the offerings. The service is very good, but don't expect to get served quickly. We do not mind the time because everything is fresh and we just go somewhere else if we are in a hurry. It is best to try many menu items (perhaps family style)... More
