This was the first time I visited a Korean restaurant. The hotel was located close to our hotel we were staying during our business trip. We had a friend who was an expert of Koran cuisine, so he advised the dishes. Everything we tested was...More

We ordered the soft noodle tofu soup and the vegetarian bibimpap. I loved all the extra items they serve at the table - greens, sweet potato, glass noodles, kimchi and cucumbers were of the right portions and tasted great. I would definitely visit again when...More

I wanted to like this place. It's got a long line going. The car park is always full. And it's in the heart of multicultural Palo Alto. The food looks good, and the menu quite comprehensive. Sadly, except for the Kalbi (which was competent if...More
