Went with some friends who haven't eaten there in a long time. My wife loves the soups, and I love the kalbi and bulgogi. It's the favorite restaurant of my neighbors who come from Korea. The service is excellent, even though the restaurant seemed very...More

We meet here all the time for Sundubu dinners with my in-laws. Their quality is consistent and food is good. They are Korean so I trust their taste in Sundubu. The restaurant is large and never too crowded which is good when we come in...More

Their combos are a great idea. Enjoyed tofu soup with delicious fried mackerel entree. We also tried another soup that was large enough to provide the next day's lunch. They don't go overboard with the Korean appetizers but they were quite adequate.

When I have a craving for bulgogi this is the place I visit! I've been here for both lunch and dinner and it's great anytime. The spicy cucumbers served with the kimchi and other stuff are my favorite. Prices are decent. The tofu soup is...More

I adore soups and tofu, but this is a nope sort of place. Crowded, loud, not super clean, so so food, inattentive service... Go to check it out, but you probably won't want a second visit.
