This is a little restaurant tucked up on a second floor off Prospect St on a street slopes down to Scripps Park. It's very basic but the Korean food really is top notch and not expensive. They have a small balcony and there are two...More

This is tucked upstairs. I am honestly surprised because the food is decent and the price not ridiculous at this location. Our hungry stomachs were satisfied. The only thing is the salad bar was not up to par. Otherwise, this is a good food stop...More

This is a little gem if you like Korean food. The owners make it happen here and have for many years. They can cook a small fish perfectly. This is a small place with a good vibe. Kimche and all the sides as expected.

Being an avid fan of korean food. This is average, didnt like my spicy octopus bowl .. its texture seemed old. Kimchi Ramen was bland... Prices were cheap but if you know korean food... this restaurant is a korean fast food option.

Delivery with hot and tasty food where the fried egg was still warm enough to be mixed in the babimbop at home. Green onion and lunches pancakes were great. Fast delivery. Super tasty and brown rice available!

I was able to get a soup with pork and kimchi as well as two sakes for under $10. All that with a basic salad bar. You cannot find food this cheap anywhere. Food was very good (nice and spicy) and sitting outside can provide...More

Little Korea is reasonably priced and the food was very good. I really liked the dumpling soup and tofu soup. I visited in March so it was excellent comfort food for the cool spring evenings.
