We enjoyed our food here, but honestly it was so busy and the wait (even with the yelp checkin) was crazy. It was pretty pricey for what it was and I guess was just a little overhyped for us. It was good, just the reviews made it sound amazing. Cocktails were great.

Hands down the best Korean/Japanese food. They don’t take reservations and the wait is always at least 45 minutes to an hour but it’s sooo worth it! My fiancé and I came here twice and we order anything and everything we want. Drinks, apps, entrees— the meal would be less than $100. And you fill up quickly. Besides the weird smell you get after you leave, this is our spot every time we come to the city. Best prices and it’s like the best hole in the wall kind of restaurant. Must check out!!!

Liked the food, starting out with the beer. was very busy friday night, but even 45 min wait was worth it. Just passed time sipping beer at bar. Anyway, great udon soup with tempura shrimp, although i did not like the chicken added in that. The calamari appetizers were super.
