Our daughter/son in law were excited for us to experience this place for my wife's celebration as they had been here previously, having researched online for a Korean restaurant. The distinctive red brick, white walled, and blue roofed building sits next to the street in...More

Their combos are a great idea. Enjoyed tofu soup with delicious fried mackerel entree. We also tried another soup that was large enough to provide the next day's lunch. They don't go overboard with the Korean appetizers but they were quite adequate.

I don't really understand the wide split in reviews unless (as someone suggested) some of the visitors are expected Chinese food. My daughter had been here before with a friend and they both love Korean food and thought it terrific. This visit my daughter and...More

Went there on a Sunday dinner. Suprisingly, there were not that many customers. Even though we got a table quickly, there was a long wait before someone came around to take our orders. We were a party of four and ordered different dishes. None of...More
