We went with a party of 14, most of whom had been there before and were familiar with the menu. Many of the dishes are hot, and it's worth asking what level of spiciness you are willing to try. I liked all the food but perhaps it was the fault of the person doing the ordering - a lot of... More

Since we were in Rochester for a few days we decided to have a Korean lunch. We had not eaten at Young's so we thought we would try it. Service was slow at 12:05 pm even though there were only two other tables occupied, and they had ordered already. Plenty of small dishes Kim-chi, some very hot spices, and then... More

I'm in love with pajeon, in love, I tell you! And if you're not, you've never had it -- or never had it prepared correctly. How can one go wrong with the combination of the satisfying crunchy goodness of the edges adorned with the savory bulk of the vegetables? And then...oh then...you dip that baby in the salty, acidic dipping... More

I love Korean food so I have tried every Korean restaurant in the area. Young's is by far my favorite. Food is delicious. I have friends who live in Korea and this is where they request to go when they are here visiting. It is the most authentic. Prices are reasonable. Atmosphere is fairly plain. Open, not much privacy. Definitely... More

Hands down the best Korean food in Rochester! Don't let the outside of the restaurant fool you - looks are deceiving.

I had a great meal here with my work colleague. Delicious scallion pancakes with seafood. Classic bibimbap in a stone bowl. The grilled beef was not the best I had, but it did the trick. All in all, I'm glad to have this restaurant at hand when I'm in Rochester.

Young's offers authentic Korean food at a reasonable price. The restaurant is not in the most convenient location but is definitely worth it if you're looking for good Korean food in Rochester. The owners and staff are very friendly and do an excellent job. The food is great and affordably priced given its high quality. Dishes of note are the... More

Youngs is a true Korean restaurant with the typical cafeteria type ambiance. The food is outstanding and always delicious. The service is excellent and the staff is welcoming and kind. The prices are very reasonable and there are always leftovers to take home. The traditional Korean appetizers, included with every meal, are outstanding.

We followed other people's recommendation at TripAdvisor, and tried for the first time in this restaurant during our family vacation in the region. Everything is so delicious, and the price is very reasonable. Anyone who is a fan of Asian food should try this restaurant. You will never regret.

The food was so good and different from anything I have ever had. The service was good, the decor was average, but the menu has so many interesting items to choose from. It is worth checking out for yourself.
