The food was minimally seasoned, but overloaded with heat. I love spicy food, but these folks miss the mark by sacrificing taste for heat. The menu looked intriguing, but the reality was disappointing.

My two Chinese colleagues and I came here for dinner on a Sunday night in April. The place was not too crowded. Service was prompt and polite, and happy to explain confusion on the menu. We all had the Uber Bop, which was more food than any of us could finish. Pretty spicy for my weak palate, but not overpowering.... More

Fun atmosphere with great food. The menu is wide and deep--there's something for everyone but it is well seasoned (read "spicy") so if you are into bland food maybe eat elsewhere. I loved each of my 3 'takos' and even had a bite of my daughter's burrito. If you're unsure about what to order, the servers will guide you. This... More

Kimchi fry rice+sesame fries+Taco+Sangria, this is such great combination for our dinner. Very impressive with the taste for each of them. I am glad we choose this one out of so many restaurants around GT area.

We sampled almost one of every tako and the sweet potato fries. Everything was very good and very fresh. lots of veggies and nothing was greasy. The happy hour was very good, cheap Korean beer. Server was very standoffish and not helpful though. Really pretty setting and decor.

The food is innovative and delicious! Kind of a weird location but I love it and eat here for business meetings and lunch dates alike . Adventurous and playful food but doesn't take itself too seriously.

I live literally in the next block and do takeout on a fairly regular basis because I really like the uniqueness of the food. Tonight I placed a takeout order and for at least the fourth time there was no record of the order when I went to pick it up. Had it not been so late and I not... More

$2 tacos is a must at this restaurant. The ingredients are always fresh and delicious. Service is efficient but it is very busy so try to make a reservation.

I saw this place reviewed and thought it might be a fun for dinner, but we came here for lunch instead. Lucky, as the only tables are on the sidewalk and it happened to be a nice fall day. I got fried pot stickers and barbecue tacos. The pot stickers were very good, the tacos were decent. There might be... More
