Recommended by our daughter, we came here for a family meal. We would not have found it without her as it is a bit hidden away in what appears to be the owner's front room. Tiny restaurant but we were made extremely welcome. The owner & chef/waiter were charming, the service was excellent & the food delicious. The Korean food was a real change & we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This was our second visit and we weren't disappointed, the crispy prawns were our favorite but everything was lovely, very fresh and well cooked. Only a small wine menu but what we had was lovely and a good price. The restaurant is small, only 16 seats, but it adds to the atmosphere and the service is personal, they make you very welcome and we will return next time we visit York.

My husband took me here as a belated birthday celebration. The very small restaurant (18covers) is tucked away off Fossgate and was very clean. It was good being able to see the chefs work and we noted from other guests that children were very welcome. We ordered beef, chicken, vegetable noodles, seaweed with black beans and kimchi plus Korean beer. The only disappointment was the beer which was much the same as every other mass produced beer but the food was wonderful. My husband preferred the beef which was rich and spicy but I loved the chicken which had the lightest and crunchiest batter I've ever had.

We'll definitely be back, it was a delicious meal.

This Restaurant has been a very pleasant and astonishing finding. The place is cosy, little (so reservation is highly recommended) but really nice and very clean. The first sensation you have when you come in is to come back home. The menu is really rich with several vegetarian choices. The food is fresh, and all the meals are prepared with an incredible touch and really full of flavours. Staff is great, really helpful, nice and friendly. Service was very quick but this didn't affect the overall quality, simply stunning!. I will definitely come back again and I recommend to everyone. It's really one of the few places in York where you can have a nice and genuine meal!

We went here on the basis of previous reviews and were not disappointed. It was tricky to find as its tucked away in a courtyard. We didn't book and at 9pm on a Friday it was full (it is tiny!), but they were very good and asked if we could come back in 30 mins, which we did and after shuffling a few other customers around (thanks everyone!) they accommodated our party of four. This place isn't cheap but the food is excellent and the host was more than happy to talk about the food and make suggestions. Would definitely visit again, but book in advance!
