“will not return”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Not being a connoisseur of Korean food I cannot comment on the authenticity of the food. In addition to vegetable dumplings as an appetizer, the server/owner recommended 3 dishes, citing them as the most popular Korean dishes: bulgogi (thinly sliced marinated beef), bibimbap (rice with vegetables, beef, and egg), and japchaebap (transparent noodles with vegetables on rice). The beef dish was good, but none of us were impressed with the appetizer or the other two dishes.

“Great food, Great bake for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is the third time l come here. Might not be the best korean food l ever had, however, it is still a authentic and not pretentious. If you want to eat Korean food , this is the best place to go. Other places make you pay a premium. This is the place for me. Many Koreans come here ...This is obviously a sign which does not lie.

“Authentic home cooked Korean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Been here many times and always come away satisfied. Excellent and authentic flavors at very reasonable price. If you are looking for very good Korean place this is the place to go in Ottawa. Decor etc very basic, but that's not why one should go here.

Big portions, very friendly staff. The food has a very home cooked feel which we love.

Next door is a authentic Korean grocery store for all your North East Asian grocery needs.

“Really authentic Korean food at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

I have been to a few Korean places in Ottawa and Toronto and they have all been good, but this one is exceptional. The service was really fast and the chef actually came to our table and showed me how to properly mix my Bibimbab. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable.
