I was in San Francisco for business and had dinner here one night because it was open late and offered more than just bar food. It's a small place and the service is friendly. I had the bibimbap, it was good and a filling portion....More

I've eaten in better Korean restaurants. This hole-in-the wall is dark, cramped and not very clean. The food is average.

We popped into this lively Korean restaurant for a late dinner and loved it! My husband had the kimchee fried rice, which was exceptional! I liked that they had a projector playing music videos.

Plenty of typical Korean dishes are available, a according to a Korean friend they reflect the taste of the food in the country. $12 should be enough for eat well and a sufficient amount. It would be better for you to like spicy meals though.

CoCo Bang is close to downtown San Francisco, on he border of the Tenderloin and Nob Hill. The menu is classic Korean, generally with western titles to make the ordering process a little easier. The Spicy tofu Soup ( Sun Du Bu ) is tasty...More

I have had some amazing korean food before...this was not it. The little plates of food that they bring out before your food is usually a good indication of how good the food is going to be. They only brought out 3 and they were...More
