We have not eaten here for years now. The location has moved slightly but the food is as good as ever. The number of banchan seem to have decreased. But otherwise we loved our visit. Besides our usual daeji bulgoki (spicy pork bbq) and the dolsot bibimbap (beef and veggie rice bowl), we got our favorite, yuk hwe (essentially Korean... More

Recently, I arrived within 15 minutes of their closing for their night and that's a situation I usually try to avoid. However, I knew exactly what I wanted before I even arrived and decided I'd try out New Korea House - Be Bim Bap and an OB. One of the servers welcomed me and was happy to know I was... More

We had a variety of foods at this fine restaurant. The bulgoki was especially good. I could have done without the several sides that were less than wonderful. The service was good, the seating is very nice but price would keep me from another visit.

My enjoyment of the food is always affected by the demeanor of the person serving it to me. If I feel stressed out and/or rushed by them, I'm bound to not enjoy the food as much as I probably should have. The server that greeted us basically just pointed us to a free booth. She took our drink orders several... More

Holy heck, this was awesome. My friends and I went here (some us having Korean food before and others not). They definitely show you what to do, help you decide what to order if you're a first-timer, and are super friendly. The food was fantastic and very authentic. LOVED IT

They have 3 selections for meals (the others are all ala carte). We tried B dinner which is $40/per person. Comes with the small plates as appetizers with kim chee that is not spicy - yay, tofu, turnip, bean sprouts. Everyone got a bowl of dumpling soup (only 2 dumplings). Our selection came with BBQ rib (hardly any mean), slices... More

I used to be an executive with Samsung and as a Westerner had never been introduced to Korean food, until I worked for this Korean behemoth. During the time I worked there I was able to eat Korean food both in Korea as well as the US and I quickly developed a preference for Korean food. Korean dishes can run... More

The Kimchi was perfectly prepared and we cleaned our bowls completely even though we were not very hungry. All the workers were smiley and friendly too. The price was not the cheapest but it was definitely worth the money!
