My husband loves Korean food. He lived there for 2 years and this is the place he goes if he wants good Korean food. I love the Bulgogi and all the fun side dishes that accompany it. My husband usually gets this dish that served in a hot bowl...can't think of the name but he says it reminds him of Korea and takes just as he remembers. It's a decent sized restaurant with mediocre decor but the food is good so who cares about the decorations if the place is clean right?! Service can be a little slow at times but your food always comes out piping hot and fresh with good portions so I can overlook a little longer wait time.

As others have said, +1. I spent a couple years in Korea and became addicted to the clean, hearty, spicy and unique cuisine; I was stoked to come across VIP. This place is the real deal, the food is absolutely superb, and every detail of the whole experience has been somehow magically replicated! (with the exception of sitting on a heated wooden floor :)) I also happen to know that this is the go-to place for Korean expats, air crews, and businessmen. If you have never experienced Korean cooking, this is the place to start. You might want to try the Bibimbap served in a scorching iron pot, Galbi BBQ ribs, or spicy octopus soup. They also have a Chinese menu, which is also interesting as Koreans have their own unique take on Chinese, much like Americans do. Prices are a little more than average for asian fare in Anchorage, which is a bargain considering VIP is probably the most authentic restaurant in town! Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Food and service is excellent! be sure to stop here. the food in this restaurant is different than other places. other places seem like the food was sitting in the kitchen all day, waiting to be put on a plate. i ordered the Mongolian beef and it came in a very hot bowl still steaming up, sizzling.

If you're in Anchorage and you want real korean food, then VIP is the place to go...

No games no joke... the real deal all the way...

And don't be intimidated if you're the only non-korean in the place... Everyone is welcome...and the food is great...

Take out is available...

I will say the best part about VIP is the HUGE pair of scissors they give you instead of a steak knife when you order the beef short ribs... ha!
