Title says it all.... we love coming to this place since its rough around the edges, has loose doors/windows that let the cold air come in but the environment and food is spot on. Nothing fancy here at all....but yummy Korean food that's great on a cold evening. My wife and I lived in Asia for 8+ years and this... More

I've been going to this restaurant about once a week since for a few years now, this was my go to place for lunch, and I've introduced many friends to this place. This restaurant got many of my friends hooked on Korean food, including myself. However, this year, after they remodeled and hired new staff, the food hasn't been the... More

I read the other reviews on this place and I have to agree that it is a hole in the wall. I have to also agree about the food and the prices. I took my son there for lunch and we are all about Korean food. I'm a third generation Korean and love Korean food. This was the closest Korean... More

This is a perfect college resteraunt. They food is authentic, filling, and delicious. You get in and out and feel like you got your money's worth. If you're in the area go here, but I don't know if I'd make a special trip.

I've been going here for many years and the food was pretty authentic. Loved the little side dishes. But on today's visit, the food was way below par. I was really disappointed. We ordered the spicy pork and the bibimbap and the pork was ok but the bibimbap was tasteless. I hope they recognize and bring the taste of the... More

The smells were very enticing when I walked in. I wished I had been with a couple of friends, because several of the options looked delicious. I had the Chicken bulgogi (teriyaki) and it was wonderful! I was hesitant to get the "teriyaki" chicken, because I've had some in the past that was too sweet, too salty, too tough. This... More

The food is excellent and the staff are wonderful. All menu items are posted on a wall with a picture. One can simply point and/or request the assigned number to order. Food is very tasty and served quickly. Water is free from this communal water cooler. The drinking cups are huge foam cups. The restaurant itself is a little worn-out,... More

I've always wanted to try this place and last time I was in the area, I stopped by for dinner. Glad I did. The restaurant is small and completely unimpressive looking - a handful of tables, open cooking area and a counter (a rice cooker was sitting on a chair next to the dining area). You place your order at... More

Flavorful, spicy, fun. Small hole in the wall with great food. It has a great vibe with people who love food. I just wish they had some soju.

I was down in the Cities for grandsons hockey at the Mariucci rink and saw this restaurant close by and easy parking so why not. Had never really experienced Korean food before and the minimal English speaking gentlemen pointed to the menu on the wall with photos and prices and he said pick one. I did and waited and he...
