Went for dinner and ordered japchae, mandoo, bibimbap, and Korean noodle soup. Everything was tasty but the bibimbap was bland. I had to keep adding gojujang sauce to spice up. Service was good and atmosphere was pretty busy.

We went here for a late lunch. We got the bulgogi meal for two. It was ample food with many different dishes to sample and enjoy. They cook the meat on a gas grill set into your table. I have eaten at a number of korean establishments around the country over the years and can honestly say that this was the highest quality beef I have ever had. It was well marinated and very tender.
The only downside is that it was slightly expensive since they do not offer lunch menu on the weekends.

Went here for dinner and was quite disappointed with the atmosphere. Restaurant was dark and had an old/dirty feel. We chose this restaurant as it had good reviews for Korean BBQ. We ordered Korean BBQ dishes so the food was cooked right on our table. Service was poor-average. Staff was not very attentive and could not answer questions that we had regarding the menu. Dinner for 3 people cost $100, without any drinks or appetizers/side dishes. For this price I would expected a much better atmosphere and more updated restaurant. Food was tasty and unique and serving portions were a decent size.

I would not recommend this restaurant to friends and do not plan on returning in the future.

I have been there for 3 times and it is always nice to go back. The food is good and the atmosphere is great. The only disadvantage is that you have to change your cloths after you have been there but that is just a detail.

This was brilliant, the food was amazing, the staff was pleasant, and I loved all the KIM CHI! They were able to handle 9 of us no problem.
