My wife and I are very big into Korean food, so seeing a Korean Restaurant right across the street from the hotel was awesome. The place was pretty Authentic and had a lot of Korean folks eating there. But for me the food was average. The Bulgogi was dry. The Chop Chae was okay, and the Yakimandu was weird looking (tasted okay though). I am sure there are better places in the area, I just didn't look. Kind of Pricey for what we got too.

Had a terrible experience with this restaurant. The place is in a worn-out strip and there is no customer. I was worried that a robber may come through the door at any moment. Though restaurant is family owned, they show no interest in their very few customers. The waitress there is like a robot, no smile and no service. Price is definitely on the high end, even compared to NYC and Fort Lee area Korean restaurants. A kalbi dish, poorly prepared, cost $32. The kimchee and before dishes are very few. The only good thing I can say about this restaurant is the noodle dishes taste okay. The place is a rip off and you don't even get to enjoy a restaurant experience. Stay away!

The restaurant has had a few ownership changes over the years. However the food and ambience are the same. Excellent noodle dishes and rice in a hot stone dish which results in crispy and crunchy rice. They serve the small plates as standard. Reasonably priced.

The two of us hadn't been to Korea in over 20 years. We found the restaurant by chance and decided to try it. The food is authentic, the choices varied, and the service was excellent. The outside appearance may look like a hole in the wall, but if you like Korean food, you won't be dissapointed!

Arirang had a few 5 star reviews on google, but from 4 years ago. So we decided to give it a try. When we pulled up into the very old looking strip mall, we instantly started looking online for other restaurants, but since we were all tired of driving we decided to give Arirang a try, even though it looks like a cheap Chinese take-out place from the outside. The inside was plain but clean. The owners (a middle aged couple) were very friendly and helpful (we weren't very knowledgable of korean food). The food came out in a reasonable amount of time and was very delicious. There were about 8 or 10 side dishes for the table. We would definitely eat here again if we were in the area.
