We had the bibimbob and the pajeon (korean pancake). Those 2 dishes for 2 people were just enough and the price for it all was awesome.

We drove 150 miles to experience Korean cuisine.
Only in the U.S, People of this Planet ,can express proudly their ethnicity
thru hard kitchen/ restaurant work .
We found this at this 6 table restaurant in N. Tampa.
1. F.O.B worm acceptance into their dining room ,prepping you to an unknown journey into the Korean culture and gastronomy.
2.B.O.H We sample 4 dishes .3 soups and 1 stir fry.
About the food : Pretty presentation,high brows from the host on the quantity of food we order,all vegetables as fresh as picked up from the ground , the beef in 2 dishes cooked perfect as the menu promises.
Stir fried seafood crispy .
The fish egg soup : the broth was missing a fish and sea flavor and the sacks of cod roe they were hard to chew ,at the end of the day you cook eggs,millions of them,
may be fry them in batter and than add them just before serving.
The cuisine : if this is the food Korea has to offer they are very limited to flavor of the main ingredient because the abundance of the red pepper use.
I'm not saying is bad but for Caucasians like us it really burns at the exit side.
All in all I say go ,experience ,enjoy the company of your hosts,and if you don't have exit problems go back and you will find your lost Korean cousins hospitality.
Thank you much, I will be back and as promise. I will bring some Mediterranean ingredients for for my new found cousins .

Don’t let the strip mall location and plain interior discourage you. This place serves delicious and authentic Korean food. The bibimbop was the best I’ve had – fresh crisp vegetables served with steaming rice. Chile sauce was available to add more spice if needed. My dining companion thoroughly enjoyed the japchae – a variety of sautéed peppers, mushrooms & onions with flat noodles lightly tossed with sesame oil, soy sauce & sesame seeds. Kimchi, pickled ginger and cucumber were provided as sides. Servings were ample and reasonably priced. Our dinner for two was under $30. Will definitely return.

My family and I love Korean food. We never miss a chance to try a new place. We found this place by accident. After looking at the reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon we knew we had to try it. We were not disappointed. The restaurant does not look like much. Do not be concerned. It is clean, the people are friendly and the food is amazing. My husband and I had Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap. It was delicious. Our daughters had sweet and sour chicken and pork. Both were good but the pork was just a bit better. We will definitely go back, in fact I can't wait.
