The food served in this restaurant is excellent. From the spicy ramyun to the coconut shrimp, and that's just to start. Jap chae to Bibimbap and bulgogi. The perfect cure after a hard night on the town. Done with the Chinese buffet, hard enough to make my choices here. Always worth the dollars. Side note: Service not great, and always... More

We love this restaurant! Flavorful, fresh and reasonably priced in a fast casual setting make this our go-to choice for spicy food to satisfy our herbivores and omnivores alike. With a mix of vegetarians and omnivores, our family of five sometimes struggles here in the Midwest. The Oriental Spoon makes it easy with their large selection of noodle and Bolgogi... More

2nd time I have been here. It's about 45 mins from my house but worth it. The bulgogi is amazing and tried the crab Rangoon today. Awesome.

Their Korean food is very good value. It is very taste and not too expensive. I take my grand-kids there all the time

Somewhat limited menu, but what they do have is very good and the portions are large. The waitresses have always been friendly, and there is an outdoor seating option, which is really nice. The food isn't terribly spicy. Pretty good beer selection as well.

The food here will have you coming back for more!! I have never had such fresh Asian food of any kind, but this Korean sets the bar incredibly high. Freshly chopped vegetables in everything! You have to try the egg rolls with the peanut sauce. You just have to. Then order 1 bi-bim bop and 1 bugolki and share it... More

I know I've revues this place before, but I can't help it, it's that good. Very pleasant wait staff, the food is always very good. This has become our goto place for something good, reasonably healthy, and not expensive. Good Korean food. Try the Bulgogi, I love the spicy squid, the fiance likes the pork.

I highly recommend the bulgogi! I usually order the spicy shrimp bulgogi, but sometimes I get the regular shrimp bulgogi or spicy squid bulgogi to change things up. There's a good variety of fresh crisp vegetables in these dishes Many other delicious options on the menu as well, including vegetarian choices.
