Restaurant details
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We got here early on a Saturday evening and were so pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, and the service. The food is Asian inspired, pot stickers are cooked to order, and terrific. Large portions, and nicely prepared. Servers were happy to explain the menu since we'd not been there before. They are open for lunch during the week, but only open for dinner on the weekend. This is a diner, pretty basic atmosphere, it's not a dress up place, and we loved that there were families enjoying the food too.

What a busy hopping place and when you taste the food,you will know why! We appreciated the excellent service even when super busy and the food tasted fresh and well prepared. Would go back there anytime!

This funky little restaurant has been in my town for years now. I was craving Korean food after my first experience recently and concluded that East Village would be close to Korean. We ordered the Monk's Bowl. My husband got it with delicious thinly sliced marinated beef. Me with chicken. Both excellent. Portion sizes are good and if you don't have an appetite like me, you might even be able to share one. Great service. Wish I had dined here earlier.

We were visiting the area with family that have spent a lot of time in the Encinitas area and they know we love our food, well they couldn't have taken us to a better place!
We were advised to go for the Monk's bowl and we were not disappointed! A delicious bowl of rice, meat and vegetables was placed before all of us and there wasn't much left at the end!
Well worth a visit - reasonably priced, good atmosphere and great food!

We were visiting a friend who lives in the area, he knows we are foodies and wanted to take us someplace different. So happy with choice he made, the food was absolutely delicious!
