This is simply authentic, home Korean cooking at its finest. My wife worked in C'ville from 2007 - 2009, when we started dating and she introduced me to Korean food at Bamboo House. She told me that it reminded her of the Korean restaurants off...More

I live half the year in northeast Columbia, SC. By coincidence, my immediate neighborhood has numerous Korean restaurants and shops. Most of them are very good and my wife, friends and I eat in them regularly. The point is that I'm very familiar with Korean...More
