“Authentic food, friendly service, reasonable prices!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

There are 3 Korean restaurants in Henrietta and when I asked a Korean colleague where I should go to eat, she suggested Young's. This is a small (maybe 12 tables) unpretentious family run restaurant. We've been there several times now but the first time we went we knew NOTHING about Korean food. My colleague recommended our meals and now we are hooked. The staff is very patient in answering our questions and the food is absolutely outstanding. We've dined at Sodam as well and although the food there was excellent, Young's is better and the cost is much less.

“We love this place! Authentic Korean Cuisine in a casual setting!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

My husband is Korean and this is our favorite place to eat! If you are new to Korean I recommend the BiBimBap (beef)- Hot or Cold , Bul-go-gi with beef, or for the those who like spicy dae-shi-bul gol gi with pork (not sure I spelled that right....be brave! It's like no other flavor you've ever tasted.

Many dishes can be vegetarian as well. The waitress is usually the owner and helpful to ordering.

Banchan is free vegetables, tofu, and kimchi..it varies..served at the beginning of the meal. So healthy and fresh tasting.

“Why bother with anywhere else? This place is great”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Rochester is a landscape of fair to middling restaurants. I was not expecting much when we came into Young's tonight. The location is unpromising - back of the beyond of Rochester's confusing suburban strip mall hell in an industrial/business park wasteland. One of those areas that could be anywhere in the US - suburban St. Louis or Seattle or Tampa. But when we walked in, everything became clearly different. The ambience was bright and welcoming and the air smelled wonderful, and we were greeted enthusiastically. Tables near us were crowded with happy, relaxed diners. When our banchan arrived, it was all fresh and lively - none of that weary stuff that passes for banchan in so many places. Very crisp and sparkling flavors, freshly made, and some unusual delightful choices too. Our entrees were also very sparkling - wonderful. Everything was just delicious. The pancakes, the kimchi, the pork/tofu dish, the spicy squid with vegetables. The service was outstanding and the portions were enormous. We have eaten Korean food all over North America, and live in a city where it is a regular part of our lives, and this place is one of the best we have encountered. Fresh, tasty, accurate, pungent. Also, moderate prices and the friendliest and most courteous people running the place. Near us was a gentleman eating solo, and he clearly comes here often and is just as welcome as the great big families and the groups of college friends and the couples. We feel privileged to have discovered it. If it wee in our home town, we would eat here all the time and, frankly, keep it to ourselves. When you are in Rochester, or near Rochester, or driving past Rochester, get your GPS or whatever Internet mapping you trust to lead you to this excellent place.

“Outstanding meal”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

First time at this Korean restaurant which was clean, comfortable and very relaxed. No pressure to eat quickly and it was very family friendly. Questions about the menu were answered with helpful responses. Banchan was varied and delicious. Dumplings were crisp and hot. Entrees were all outstanding and appealed to the varied palates of a family. Children said, "fantastic place, we have to go back"....and we will.
