This was my second visit to this little Korean BBQ, the quality of the staff could improve, but the food... It is as traditional as it gets. This one is worth a visit if you like Korean food.

Went in to this place without any previous experience in Korean BBQ. Servers were helpful with menu and selection of food and the process. Very tasty and there was lots of food. We will definitely be back.

We had a delicious dinner here. Had to specify that we did not eat meat. The wait staff was VERY gracious in helping us choose a fish stew and vegetable noodle dish that did not have meat. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Excellent service.

We went for BBQ but also wanted to try the restaurant's namesake, the aged kimchi. Also, the restaurant was recommended on the Kimchi Chronicles blog, and I love that show. There was no other real reason for choosing this place over the other Korean restaurants...More

We wanted to try Korean, we never had it before. We ordered some starters not knowing what would come. Kim Chi is an acquired taste and we did not like it at all. We had ordered mains and they came covered in kim chi. So,...More
