This place has a lot of things working against it. The location, in a small strip mall next to a nail salon, must make it hard to get a good clientele. The decoration is frightening, somewhere around a Kansas rustic, country, or just chintzy. And to top it all off, the music is pretty bad. All that said, however, the... More

Amazing food. I could eat soon dubu everyday for the rest of my life and be happy. Bibimbap is comes in stone bowl. Seafood pajeon is great. I don't even like seafood and I like it.

I don't normally think of little strip malls as having "go-to" places for tremendous food, but that is certainly the case with O Cafe. One problem that I will admit to is that IF the first thing I try off the menu is sublime, then I may eat their food 100 times without changing my order. Therefore, I can only... More

I had no idea what to expect, but I really loved my meal and this place. Typical strip mall decor. Nothing exciting there. But the food was unique, fresh, and plentiful. I especially enjoyed the kimchi and pickled radish relish that just kept being supplied through out the meal. I intend to return and tell all my friends about it!... More

Visited this cozy, funky decorated restaurant for dinner. Food was excellent, authentic Korean. Loved the noodles and dumplings. Favorite dish was beef noodles. Completely recommend it.

This is the first time I have ever eaten Korean food. The owner is very kind and helps you make your choices if you are unsure. The food is wonderful and fresh

This is a small restaurant with some English tea decor. Service was good and cook/owner came by the table to greet us. The food was excellent had the beef noodles and kimchi (delicious). Quiet spot. Reasonable prices.

Good food, wish the Jasmine tea had not been in a tea bag. Korean owner cook very genuinely helpful, waitress that day needed to concentrate a little more, forgot to tell us that they were out of one of our orders...

This is a very good, authentic Korean restaurant - even the décor is reminiscent of places I visited in Seoul. The bibimpap is flavorful, and filling, and served with your choice of hotness. When available, the Naengmyon (cold, but spicy, noodle soup) is not to be missed.

It is hard to find a nice restaurant in this town where it is possible to actually have a conversation with your table mates. This is one where you can. In addition the ambiance is charming, like someone's quirky home. Not trendy pseudo-Asian decor. The food is great Korean comfort food so not surprisingly many patrons are Korean. Everything here...
