If you are looking for something different or looking for some place to share tapas, then this is the place to go. They do Korean Hibachi with their own flair. Great little place.

We were looking for small plates and couldn't have been happier. In one word... Delicious! Make sure you try the tongue and cheek bao bao. Oh, and if you order the Yuzu, don't be shy when it come in a very girly glass!

The food really is great but you have to pay a lot for a little. Try the Miso soup..it has bacon, clams, and corn in it! Love the staff, always friendly and talkative. Just be prepared to pay a bit more than your used to.

Ambience: Loungy place, very inviting to stay longer. We had a comfortable booth with cozy benches. A little bit too dark. Open kitchen so you can see your chefs working hard. For some the music may be a bit tad loud. Food: Menu on the...More
