I'll certainly go back next time I'm in Brooklyn.More

Ate here two times during our stay. Everything we had on the menu was surprisingly good. Chicken wings were probably the best I've ever had. You can't go wrong on the menu.

Came with our granddaughter. Really enjoyed the Korean food which was spot-on for flavor and quality of the dishes.

We settled on this place after browsing the restaurants on Smith Street, it turned out to be a good choice. A welcoming place with cheerful service, seems to be popular with locals. The food was not fine dining, but very satisfying and bursting with all...the flavours you'd expect from Korean cooking and exceptionally good value for money.More

I have had dinner here three times now... each time the food and service is the same high quality. Large portions, tasty food, and the best kimchi I have had. Had no problems with the service - the waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive...- and overall very good value.More
