Ambience: 4/5. Good Korean style decor with nice quiet music, but nothing overly impressive. Service: 3/5. The waiter was courteous and fast but approached the table way too often, and barely spoke English. Food: 5/5. If you crave Korean food, that's your place. The meals...More

First of all, it is overpriced. The plates are not big and I have been to much better Korean restaurants. We went there once and I would not go back. The BBQ is ridiculously small, not enough for a five years old kid.

We are very sorry to hear you didn't not have a good experience - our prices are actually targeted at being comparable if not most of the time lower than restaurants in the bergen couunty area and NYC. ~Keo Ku Family~

Went at my father's suggestion. All staff were so nice and the food was unbelievable. The complimentary sides were so good. My four year old ate all the tofu soup and fish we ordered.
