We ate there on a Saturday at 2 pm. Moderately crowded, but not noisy. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. We've also eaten at the sister restaurant, Hangawi, which is also very good.

Everything was spot on. Lovely teas and vegetarian/vegan food at reasonable prices in nice surroundings with impeccable service. We liked the stone bowl meals and the spicy flavours of the dishes. We were also mesmerised by the ceiling. Four of us ate here and we...More

I didn't think Korean and vegan were possible, but the food selection was great and very tasty! The service was prompt and polite. Tried the "duck" bibimbop ... it really did taste like smoked duck! Would come back again when in NYC.
