I have been living in South Korea for 6 months and the food I found in this restaurant brought back so many lovely memories as it is real traditional Korean food. The waiters are very friendly and everything we tried was delicious, though a tiny bit spicy sometimes. If you can't handle spicy dishes, better ask before you order. They... More

I come to this restaurant since their opening at least once a month. Their food is super tasty and I almost always get their vegetable bibimbap in granit bowl which is big enough for a dinner (no need for a starter with this one)! Last time we tried as starter their spicy squid that was really succulent with its' sweet... More

Owners are really Korean and spicy dishes are really spicy ... close to what you find in... More

Located right after the Paris ring road ("le périphérique"), at Porte d'Italie in a backstreet. You can order some of the Korean standards, including my favourite: "Bul go gi", thin slices of beef grilled on a hot grill. Considering the modest price, it's a good value. And it's very clean and couretous. Now one problem here, As a hardened traveler,... More

This restaurant is out of the way in an unprepossessing side street in a scruffy but characterful Paris suburb. The restaurant is clean and well-decorated. Service was fairly fast, and the food was excellent. We had the Dak Bougogui and a Bibimbap, with some dumplings as a starter. The restaurant also has a choice of three Korean beers, as well...

I would have set this restaurant to good, but we can only choose average or very good. This is a nice Korean restaurant that offers an interesting menu. The décor is nice and so was the personnel. This was not my first foray in Korean cuisine and knew what to expect. The food was warm, inviting and authentic. However, it... More
