Our son is in South Korea and told us we needed to try bulgogi. Cho Sun had bulgogi on the menu so we went in. Beautifully decorated. The winner was born in South Korea and came to our table. Very nice! The bulgogi, lunch I and everything were delicious!

This was my second visit and I again ate at the bar, which had recently been redone to provide more space. It is very comfortable and a popular spot. The beer selection is good. The tuna roll was very tasty and the pork belly bulgogi nicely done. Spicy but not too. The wasabi potatoes were also good and this time... More

We enjoyed our dinner very much. The two of us split a Dragon Roll for an appetizer. The ahi tuna was outstanding, just barely seared. They have a nice selection of cocktails and some craft beers. I would go here again.

Recently friends took me to Cho Sun for the first time. Not only was the food outstanding, the experience was incredible. We went in early Sunday evening; the bar had a large crowd. We were greeted by friendly staff and our order was taken immediately. Our drinks quickly followed our order and the food was delivered in just minutes. The... More

I've eaten at Cho Sun at least 20 times over the years and it's always great. Although many restaurants seem to vary in quality from visit to visit, I've found the food to be excellent every time. We always get a number of apps - usually gyoza, spring rolls and gamja bokkeum - and all are outstanding. The sushi is... More

We orderred the spicy tuna roll as an app and it was amazing! Our main dishes were good, not great, the house made complimentary pre-dinner veggie dishes such as the Kimchee, we're very good. But that amazingly fresh and tasty sushi roll? The best I've had since I visited Japan.

This restaurant could easily top the charts if they improve upon service. Menu options are wonderful and the execution of the dishes was excellent. The service was just painfully slow. It is not clear to me whether the kitchen cannot keep up or the servers were not being attentive. I will definitely return to see if service improves. I notice... More

Good Korean and sushi in Bethel? Yes. I ate in the bar, surrounded by tv's, which I found a bit dark. However, it's a good place for a solo to eat. The bartender was friendly and efficient and offered a number of crafts beers and wines as well as soju and sake. I had a tuna maki which was delicious... More

First off, my wife is a professionally trained chef and former owner of a restaurant in New York City. Our waiter insulted her when she asked for less spicy and a low carb substitute. He told her she was "ruining the dish." He remained condescending throughout the meal with his greater than thou attitude. The sushi was okay but nothing... More

this is our 2nd trip to Cho Sun and it was excellent once again. we shared two appetizers and 8 rolls and everyhing was just wonderful. we particularly liked the pork gyoza and the crunchy roll. spicy means spicy here, so be careful if you're not into hot...
