“The Ultimate Korean Restaurant Find”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I love little hole-in-the-walls and when I saw the sign "Korean Restaurant" in what appeared to be an old supply store I literally did a quick U-turn. When I drove into the parking lot I wasn't sure it was still in operation but then saw people leaving.
So, how was it? Awesome!
I ordered the bibimbap ($10.99) to go and at first I was taken aback by the price. That was until I receive my order. Wow! It was a lot of food and well worth every bit.

Variety of menu items from familiar to unfamiliar
Easy to find
Nice workers and owners
Plenty of tables
Good tasting food

Out of the way if you're visiting Charlotte

“Excellent Korean Cuisine”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

While the atmosphere is not the most inviting (the restaurant inside a Korean grocery), the food makes up for it. I immensely enjoyed the La Gal Bi (LA Style Korean BBQ Beef Ribs) and beef fried rice. The portions are ample and can be shared for people with small appetites. The ribs are served on a sizzling platter and were thinly sliced, heavily flavored and tender. The rice was full of veggies and beef. The server was pleasant and accodating. I would definitely return but would probably take out to enjoy at home. It was very comfortable to eat solo.

“Awesome little find in an unassuming place.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The location looks like it could be a building supply center but actually is home to a Korean grocery. Entrance is on the side where the grocery extends to the left and seating is straight ahead for the restaurant. I believe there is another dining area just to the right of the main (suspect they started serving there and expended.) Nice dining area and very clean. Service was attentive (a little "service" bell is on the table as the kitchen is out of eye sight of the dining room) and fast. I ordered the seafood & tofu soup. It was served hot, well seasoned spice wise and not salty. Plenty of big chunks of tofu and seafood. I also ordered the dolsot bibimbap. Came out sizzling, as it should, with a lightly fried egg on top. It mixed up well and formed that nice crispy rice on the bowl walls. Great, freshly prepared meal with a nice variety of sides and at a reasonable price. Go, go, go!
