This place is slightly difficult to find. Yes it’s right off 501 but the maze you must navigate through the shopping center to arrive is challenging! But you’ll be glad you made the effort! Super tasty cuisine! We shared many small plates and the price...More

There's a ton of menu variety here. I got one of the kimchi bowls, it was a nice change up from the usual formula of "rice + meat + veggies." Go check out the back patio when the weather is nice, it's a relaxing place...More

We tried this because we've lost a couple not-so-great Korean restaurants recently, and I was hungry for vegetarian Korean! What a refreshing discovery, in its tranquil setting and spacious seating inside or out. More vegetarian choices than I've seen before...and flavor that will keep me...More
