This is our favorite restaurant. We drive 35 miles to get to it. The food is consistently excellent, and it's open 24hrs! Some of our favorites: The Kimchee Dolsot Bibimbap comes in a hot stone bowl, sizzling hot!, and the kimchee adds a unique taste and smells like hot sauerkraut. My wife always gets the DaeJi Bulgogi, and has it made in the kitchen rather than at the table. It's seems to be better meat and cooked to perfection (If you've never grilled at a korean table bbq, you should try it). The Seafood Pancake is full of shrimp, scallops, and scallions. The sushi is good, but you can get sushi anywhere. The side dishes, or panchan, are varied and numerous, including dried anchovies, seaweed salad, cold mashed potatoes and peas, fish cakes, sweet black beans, kimchee, pickles, and many more. Before 10pm, the waitresses dress in traditional costumes (hanbok), after 10 the men take over serving duties. The service is a team approach, feel free to flag down any wait person for help. Also, if you're not familiar with real Korean restaurants, you have to flag someone down after your initial order (ie, for more beer, soju, or napkins). We have always been treated very well here.

As a non korean at first i was not too sure what to order. But once i saw some items that were more "american" i ordered those. The place is clean and busy, we arrived at 1130 on a friday night and it was buzzing but not too busy. The service was plesent and the food was really good. I will def. go back again. Now keep in mind its pricy for food, the entires are about $15 but come with enough food for two ppl if you dont want to eat a ton.

After two visits, I can honestly say I recommend this place to friends, family, and fellow trip users. I found the food to be pretty authentic and the serving amounts were very generous for a Korean restaurants. A lot of people don't realize tat Korean food is generally more expensive because of the side dishes, which are refillable for free.

The place sits just off 495 in a very accessible area, but it can get a bit crowded. It's worth the wai, though.

If you go, let me know if you liked it!

Second visit at Yechon. This place fills up quickly for lunch, so get there before noon if possible to avoid the long lines. The lunch boxes are very tasty (excellent kimchi) and the portions are huge. The prices can't be beat and the service is good. Can't wait to return here on my next trip to DC area.

We had a short holiday visiting family in nearby Woodbridge and they offered to take us to a nearby Korean restaurant as we had only ever had kimchi before, we had to wait about 40 mins for a table but maybe you can book in advance, anyway the place is heaving!! the service is very good quick and efficient and the staff very polite polite .The food choice is excellent we opted for bbq and these dishes arrived at the table and the staff cooked them in front of you, I had ordered a starter of mixed tempura and equally that was nice most of our group of 8 opted for Korean tea which apparently was nice I had CASS beer which is Korean very nice and light ,the array of side dishes(kimchi) and dips was amazing the prices good too,the place is open 24 hours and is busy so that ells you something.
