“Elegant Korean Fare”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We did lunch on Friday afternoon. Wonderful complimentary gourmet Korean pancakes to start. Tasty vegetable soup. Great bim bim bop with beef hot pot. Wonderful seafood dinner. Nice selection of Korean mini salads. Delicate strawberries with light cream desert. Very attentive service. Best Korean restaurant we have visited in this country.

“Amazing food - better than SF”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I don't remember being more impressed by a restaurant. The next time i am remotely close to the town of Lodi, i will make sure to stop by for what will surely be another wonderful meal.It serves delectable dishes using fresh ingredients at incredible prices. My boyfriend and I stopped by for lunch and ordered two dishes. What we got in return was an additional complimentary soup and salad (such crisp, fresh vegetables), leek pancake (traditional korean food) cooked to perfection, 10 small dishes (banchans), and fruit dessert. All for less than $30. I have never encountered a better value for the quality of food served.

“Highly overrated”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

We had heard great things about the food. Our food was not great, presentation was below average. Way over priced for what we had. Will not make the same mistake twice.

“best restaurant in Lodi”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

This is the best restaurant in Lodi despite its location on the east side. The two dishes we each had were better than perfect, no flaws and much creativity. Husband and wife owners dedicated and friendly and the waiter from London a kick. Go!!
