“Best Korean Spot In Town!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

My husband, son and I love this place. The food is great and the portions are large. I love how your dish comes with numerous small dishes to try from. Bottom line this place is a must go! The whole set up of the resturant isn't fancy at all but who cares? The food here is fabulous.

“Authentic Korean Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is the place to go if you want "real" Korean food. My mom and Emos (Korean for aunt) eat here on a regular basis. It is quite small and can get pretty busy so try and hit them up during non-peak hours. Some may think it might be a costly but the portions are large.

“Excellent Korean food in Anchorage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We ate there with party of four experienced in Korean food diners, and we're well pleased. Side dishes are all very fresh and tasty. Bulgoki pork in spicy sauce was most excellent, and all the other dishes very good. Did not see cook at table BBQ option. The whole place smells wonderful of Korean dishes. Well worth visiting regularly when the hankering for good Korean food hits. We spent about $17.00 each w/o tip or drinks.

“Average at Best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

The food and service were average at best. Kimchi was old and already starting to sour.

“Best Korean Food in Town...but worth the slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

We treat our family to the VIP every couple of months or so. The food quality, taste and atmosphere feels just like being back in Korea. All meals are served with the standard assortment of small dishes of pickled items, kimchee, soup and tea. The food is somewhat pricey, but is worth it for taste and quality. Service is always slow at best and even standard expectations like water with a meal and refills are things a guest must repeatedly request. Definitely a great place to go if you're looking for the best Korean food in Anchorage, especially if you have the time to wait.
