Very long waiting list, extremely popular and crowded. Unfortunately we found the food not much to our taste. But we understand that it is a very good place for those who do like Korean food.

Korean food is one of my favorite dishes and in every city I go to i try to find a gem. This one is in that category. If the guests are mostly Korean the food must be good. Tried the simple bulgogi Which was amazing....Accompanied with a nice cold Hite. Definitely a must for Korean good lovers in San FranciscoMore

We were a group of 4 for Saturday lunch. We expected to wait in line. We arrived around 1 pm. After writing our name on the list, we waited for about 20 minutes. It was worth the wait. The food is authentic and good quality...Korean food. It's in a cozy neighborhood with other restaurants if you don't want to wait. However, the family run restaurant serves great food that is popular with young adults and families alike. Expect to wait and enjoy the food!More

I went for bulgogi and it was a tasty generous portion. Small dishes weren’t as plentiful as other Korean restaurants I’ve visited. Pleasant efficient service. Would go back if I were in the neighborhood.

A nice neighborhood Korean place in the Inner Sunset. Went for lunch and found the food to be well worth the money. The space is cramped and a bit of a hole in the wall. But the service was efficient and nice. Would definitely come...back.More

I absolutely loved the food here. The service was quick and great. Ten out of ten. Would definitely return. The kimchi fried rice was perfect. The Dae Ji Bul Kogi was also great. My only complaint would have to be asking for water. We were...served hot water when we entered. Which was actually ok, because it was a chilly night.More

Super small restaurant, make sure you're ready to wait a bit for a table if you arrive during popular dinner hours. Loved the spare ribs. They also bring little tasters while you wait of greens, potato, and kimchi!

Stopped by for dinner and it was already crowded, able to snag the last table for 2 people and these tables are close together, ie: approx 8 inches apart from the next table! Menu is on the table, under the glass top. Server came quickly...with glass of water, and was able to take our order shortly. Ban chae came quickly with our order shortly thereafter. Seafood pancake is full of tasty ingredients but it was gritty in texture. Japchae was tasty and always delicious. The seafood tofu soup was spicy, for medium spice and tasty. Still leftovers to take home. Wished the server would walk around and fill our water glasses more frequently, instead of trying to wave and whistle to catch their attention. This restaurant gets a lot of patrons, so come early or put your name on the list and wait. Prices are reasonable.More

Had dinner here last night. Went early so we did not have to wait long. There food is very reasonably priced but possibly because they do not use the best of ingredients. Had the BBQ Short Ribs and they were gristly. Maybe I don't like...Korean food but I did not really care for my dinner. I also had to ask a few times for more water until they finally brought out a flask of water for our table. Maybe if you like Korean food, this would be worth it, but I did not care for it.More

Make sure you come early (before 17:30), as they don’t take reservations. Of the dishes we had, the Korean pancake, fried dumplings and Bul Kogi were our favorites.

This tiny Korean restaurant fills up very quickly and they’re busy for a good reason. It’s very affordable compared to other Korean restaurant and the portion is perfect. It’s owned by Korean family so the food is pretty authentic. Highly recommended 👍🏼

We had dinner here while staying nearby and noticing the long line each and every day. We figured it had to be good and it was! The japchae and bibimbop were amazing, as was everything we tried. We honestly wish we were staying in SF...longer so we could eat there a second time. It is crowded and the tables are close together and it has a diner kind of a feel so it wouldn't necessarily be an intimate or romantic restaurant, but the food is excellent and the prices cannot be beat. Service was just adequate, but we didn't mind since the food was so good.More

The place is almost always crowded and you have to wait to be seated, showing the quality of the food! Next to the door there is a pad to put your name on the list. The waiting time is not more than 15min, and even...if longer the quality of the food will reward you. The service is good and the staff friendly and knowledgeable of the available food choices. The prices are reasonable and the food amount will full you.More

While driving in San Francisco found this quaint restaurant that was crowded with patrons, always a good sign. By the time we parked and returned, 2 seats were available so we did not have a wait, We ordered wings and kimchi fried rice. Wings had...a wonderful crispy batter and the kimchi fried rice was yummy. Next trip to San Francisco, this is a must visit for Korean food.More
