“Absolutely excellent, and not to be missed!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We had read about this restaurant, and on a Sunday evening we dropped in to make a reservation for the following day. The restaurant was very quiet, and we wondered if, in fact, a reservation was necessary. However, on returning on the Monday, the place was packed, and mostly with Korean guests, which we took to be a good sign.
We ordered a meal for four, with a few extras, there being four of us, and not being very conversant with Korean food. It was really splendid. The service was rapid, despite the place being full, and the owner came by to our table several times to make sure that everything was all right. She was extremely friendly, and very happy, and, indeed, the food was terrific.
A very enjoyable evening, and we will definitely go again when we return to Jasper

“Nicely done”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We went with friends who are not comfortable with spicy food so we ordered mild spicing (i.e. North American mild, not Korean mild). As a result the food was tasty but missing the kick that we normally get with Korean food (we have lived and traveled a lot in Asia).

The "Korean Mom" was very attentive and we liked the decor. We went mid-September, so off-season in Jasper, and it was pretty quiet there, which we liked.

“Delicious Korean food”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

There are many many restaurants in Jasper, and we've tried lots, but most serve very hearty, big meals. If you want something lighter, head here. Authentic, freshly cooked delicious Korean food served most charmingly. The hot pots, soups and dumplings are all fresh and simply fabulous. We will return.

“Authentic and delicious Korean food!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Really a gem on the edge of town. We went in not knowing quite what to expect, and were very pleasantly surprised.

The food? Super authentic and reasonably priced (for a resort town). The settings? Casual but nice. The staff? Friendly. I felt like I had an adopted Korean mom helping me with my dishes at times :).

Unfortunately it wasn't all perfect. For one, the kimchi isn't served with the meal. Huh? It instead has to be ordered as a side dish. We also had some mixups with our order -- the dumplings never showed up. But in the end, all forgivable for a good meal, which is exactly what we got.

Highly recommended!

“delicious Korean food”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Our party of 7 (which included kids and adults) shared the dinner for 6. The food was fresh, hot, delicious, and plentiful. It included soup, a beef dish, a seafood dish, a chicken dish, and a vegetable dish, along with rice.

This was my kids' first taste of Korean food and they liked it, despite being "picky" eaters.
