My enjoyment of the food is always affected by the demeanor of the person serving it to me. If I feel stressed out and/or rushed by them, I'm bound to not enjoy the food as much as I probably should have. The server that greeted us basically just pointed us to a free booth. She took our drink orders several... More

Holy heck, this was awesome. My friends and I went here (some us having Korean food before and others not). They definitely show you what to do, help you decide what to order if you're a first-timer, and are super friendly. The food was fantastic and very authentic. LOVED IT

They have 3 selections for meals (the others are all ala carte). We tried B dinner which is $40/per person. Comes with the small plates as appetizers with kim chee that is not spicy - yay, tofu, turnip, bean sprouts. Everyone got a bowl of dumpling soup (only 2 dumplings). Our selection came with BBQ rib (hardly any mean), slices... More

I used to be an executive with Samsung and as a Westerner had never been introduced to Korean food, until I worked for this Korean behemoth. During the time I worked there I was able to eat Korean food both in Korea as well as the US and I quickly developed a preference for Korean food. Korean dishes can run... More

The Kimchi was perfectly prepared and we cleaned our bowls completely even though we were not very hungry. All the workers were smiley and friendly too. The price was not the cheapest but it was definitely worth the money!

One of few Korean restaurants in San Francisco, in Japantown, this is a comfortable restaurant. The tables have individual barbecues built in so if you choose you can enjoy this experience. We had a pleasant meal, fully what we expected but no more. It makes a change from the usual American fare.

This place have good food but their service is extremely poor. When we sat down we didn't have any utensil or napkin on the table. Other customers who came after us receive their utensil and even had their orders taken. Waited for 10 mins and those customers who came after us already got their food. We had to remind them...

I was checked in the Hotel Kabuki, right in front of this place. I went there because the prices on display seemed faire, but I was surprised with the quality of the food. I ordered the Bi-Bin-Bap and got a series of tipical korean dishes at once. Great to have a little taste of everything, especially for me who did... More

We found this place accidentally while looking for another restaurant. The menu in the front window showed it had good prices and we were hungry. I ordered the bibimbap with egg and my sister ordered the kal bi. We were both satisfied with our choices. Before our order came we were served an assortment of side dishes - probably 8... More
