Locals find this restaurant has generous portions along with great prices. The Bulgogi and the Meat Jun are our favorites. Comes along with 3 sides. There is Korean, Japanese, and American food here.

Don't let the exterior or simple atmosphere fool you. Very nice menus items to choose from and helpful staff to guide you in Japanese, Korean and American dishes. Reasonably priced for the area. Senior and child plates are offered as well.
