This has been a family favourite for its vegetarian selection. Tonight the scales fell from our eyes. We were told the kimchi has shrimp and the miso soup with the order of "vegetarian bibimbap " has fish. Begs the question of what's in the broth...More

We ordered the soft noodle tofu soup and the vegetarian bibimpap. I loved all the extra items they serve at the table - greens, sweet potato, glass noodles, kimchi and cucumbers were of the right portions and tasted great. I would definitely visit again when...More
