I've been to this Korean restaurant before and found it very good. I've changed my diet so this time I had the tofu/vegetable soup. You have a choice of spicy and very spicy but I selected just spicy since I was flying home that night. If you really like it very spicy, order the very spicy as the spicy was... More

Been here many times and decided to get this review done before I eat. Why eat Korean in L.A.? Simply because I found the soup here comparable to that in Seoul. Must try the beef ribs. That's all I order. I do not recommend anything else besides the soup and the ribs. Side dishes are ample and tasty. Overall a... More

My wife invited me to this Torrance restaurant for a great Sunday afternoon meal. I was stationed in Korea many years ago so I have a keen taste for Korean food. I ordered a spicy tofu dish that knocked my socks off. The meal came with the usual Korean goodies and salads. The tofu soup was tasty, spicy and hot.... More

The food is great and piping hot. We love the little extra dishes that come with the tofu soup. The service is fast and the staff is friendly.

Really good, authentic Korean soft tofu soup. My Korean friend brings me here. For $10 it is good eats. It is a casual, somewhat noisy place.

A friend of us invited us to this place and we liked it, seems as well as many other people because it was pretty crowded. Food was very tasty and looked fresh. Service was great too. The problem is that a lot of soy is used, which is 99% GMO, so I don't think we will be returning. Also, they... More

This time i went with the dumpling soup, which was excellent. i got the low spiciness, which might have been a tad to little spice. whenever i get the hot one i always end up unable to taste the food by the end because of the spice. This time i was able to taste alot of the spices and the... More

This excellent tofu restaurant is at the back of a dull mall, very near the entrance to a local bowling alley .. Not the kind of location that leads you to have high expectations. I was wrong. The service is good, the menu is extensive and the place was full of Koreans having lunch. Good recommendation. I will certainly go... More

My wife and I eat there a few times every year. It is especially good when the weather is cold. We always get the tofu soup with mushrooms medium spicy. They also serve several plates of seaweed, kimchi, etc. Good service and pleasant waitresses. Highly recommended.
