Very authentic Korean food (yes, I've spent time in Korea) at very affordable prices. The owner and her daughter are very helpful in selecting food. Far more Asian customers that Americans, which is a very good sign.

When I think of Lexington, I think of their great Bourbon Barrell Ale but if I only have one meal to eat when I'm in town for business, it's this restaurant.

Great, great, authentic Korean food from a chef who apparently was very successful for years in New York City before moving out to Kentucky.

The atmosphere is understated, nothing fancy at all. Don't let that dissuade you. Great authentic Korean food.

I eat only one dish here because I have an addiction for it: dolsot bibimbop

Comes out sizzling in a pot....rice, carrots, bean sprouts, cukes, topped with a fried egg. You add the special sauce and stir it up while the rice gets crispy.

Also, the fried rice is outstanding...anything is a good choice at this small, neighborhood authentic Korean restaurant.

Very nice Korean place for things like ja jang myen or 'chap 'chae.
