The food came fast. They used REAL everything from plates, to sauce container, cutlery, and napkins! They did not even serve plastic straws! I love it because they seem very aware of the plastic pollution and climate crisis we face! Their coconut shrimp is everything!...More

Came here for a business lunch and really liked the menu. Broad set of Korean fare, as well as sushi, though the sushi choices were limited. Great choices of dumplings - I would recommend the lobster/cream cheese and the pork/tofu ones specifically. Sushi was fine....More

We were so excited that we found a restaurant that could accommodate our group of 8 last minute in Boston--unfortunately, we found out why. The food was mediocre at best. The atmosphere was lovely, however, the constant music blaring loudly in the background made it...More
