“Great Value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

There were six of us for dinner and we all ordered the all you can eat "buffet". For $20 a person, you get to choose from about 15 different dishes and you can keep ordering until you're stuffed (which is exactly what we did..(c:). The Korean BBQ (beef, pork, and chicken) that you cook at your table was delicious. The meats were very tasty and tender. The pancakes, bibimbap, dumplings and california rolls were all delicious. Only complaints about the food were the miso soup was very bland and the bibimbap stone bowl could have been hotter. The restaurant decor could use some sprucing up. But for $20 all you can eat of delicious food, you can't go wrong!

“Good food - could work on service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

My family ate at this restaurant over the weekend and though, as usual, that the food was very good. My son loved the Korean pancakes and the sushi and my husband and I quite enjoyed the bulgogi and the donburi.

The other times we have eaten here, the service has been very good, however this time around the person serving us was slow, uncommunicative, unresponsive and quite abrupt. He clearly didn't want to be there.....All in all a nice place to eat - food is fresh and very good, the restaurant is clean and comforable.

“Poor service. The only tasty dish for korean bbq was pork.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

The waiter turned off our table cooker while our pork was cooking and he didn't say anything. Plain rude. We left shortly after, I'm not eating my pork raw.
The only children highchair doesn't have safety strap.

“Love that squid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

We've been here several times now and always leave satisfied. I particularly love their spicy squid dish and share it with hubby just about every time we go in. We've tried several other dishes as well and enjoyed them all. The Korean side dishes served with your meal are great.
