I’m Korean and after a week of Thai food for every meal, I was craving some good korean food. Living in LA with a koreatown that has food that rivals Korea, I have to say that I have a pretty high bar for Korean food.

I ordered the Saam meal after looking at the pictures and it was superb. The leafy greens were extremely plentiful (I took a horrible picture that didn’t have all the veggies in it - sorry!) with about 4 different varieties including steamed cabbage. They also served cucumbers, sliced garlic, sliced jalapeño, and daikon. It also came with deonjang jjigae, grilled mackerel, and spicy pork. The spicy pork was the only thing that was “just ok” - everything else amazing! The saamjang was hot and bursting with deonjang flavor. I’m telling you- they did an amazing job with this meal. It wasn’t just “good for Korean food in Thailand”. It was good - period.

Ate here, a few things:

1. The food was great, in a nice setting
2. The price was extremely reasonable
3. The staff was amazing

It was raining very hard this particular night and neither I or my girlfriend had umbrellas available--the staff offered to let us use theirs to return them later. Some good people here, definitely will return.

Great service with friendly and engaging staff.
We ordered 3 plates to share and these were served with an array of side dishes including kimchi, black beans, greens with sesame and a salad with rice vinegar dressing.
Steamed skate wings with a fresh chilli sauce were perfect for lunch.
Odd location on the second floor of an indistinct building, but the airconditioni ng, cleanliness and most importantly the food made up for it.
Excellent.

we visited this restaurant because of its good ratings on tripadvisor and we agree, this place is super yummy and definitely worth checking out!!! we love korean food and that was one of the best we had so far. the ambience was not thrilling, I admit, but the people were very kind and the food made up for it. I wish we could go there again but we're leaving town tomorrow...
