Found right in the middle of NYC's K-town. Had to take the elevator up to the second floor but as the doors opened, we were pleasantly met with a space arranged as if it were an outdoor Korean BBQ gathering space with parts of traditional Korean architecture throughout. My husband and friend got a Korean BBQ combo dish while I got a stone bowl bibimbap (rice with vegetables) - the side dishes (in Korean, banchan) were great - there was a variety that touched all the tastebuds. The food came out relatively quickly during the lunch hour, which made for a great spot during a busy day.

Ventured here with old friends on a Friday night and waited 1.5 hours for a table but it was worth the wait!! Ambience is a bit loud but luckily we were seated in the back room where the music was not blaring...

The quality of the meat was noted and the servers did a splendid job in presenting and cooking each cut of meat. We did the marinated menu twice for a party of 4... will have to go back to try the non-marinated version.

I did not care for the seafood pancake though— is cake out at the end of the meal and was over cooked and hard/stale. There was also a good variety of drinks and soju!

If you are in Manhattan and looking for a place to have a late night dinner, look no further. This place is excellen and the atmosphere is cool. If you like Asian style food you are going to love this place.

Excellent traditional Korean Food. Korean BBQ "BulGoGi" and "Kalbi" which is the same but better quality with the bones. All related side dishes. Full bar. Nice atmosphere. Professional staff. BBQ cooked at your table. This is an excellent Korean restaurant and most of the clients are Korean. That said, it's a great place for everyone. All the staff wear a tee shirt which reads "we meet again" with a picture of a cow and a pig. Food is expensive and worth it.
