Definitely has the 'Korea' feel to it-very much like a typical small restaurant almost anywhere in Korea with the same taste and atmosphere-very difficult to describe unless you've spent time there.
I visited twice during a business trip and was impressed with the authenticity both nights-even down to the quirky slide show on the TV by the cash desk and the sappy 'K-Pop' being played. I had bibimbap-Korean rice hot pot-- the first night and Soon Dubu Jjigae-- spicy tofu stew--the second night, both very good and not 'altered' for Western tastes.
I used my basic Korean to order and the servers really appreciated that! Very friendly once you get beyond the language barrier-just like Korea-I was the only Caucasian in there both nights-very evocative of my time in Korea.

We ordered bibimbap and pork on a hotplate; the pork was a bit oily but both quite good and the portions were big enough. The lady who helped us was not very talkative or friendly but the food came fairly quick, included free tea, and for less than $22 we had a nice Korean dinner for two!
