“Hole in the wall, but so darn good”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

Yes its next to an adult book store. Yes it looks like it could use a makeover. Yes the owner runs around with her head chopped off. But that's the point. It's all about the food. The servcie is slow. The food is cooked to order so be patient!!! And if its your first time DON'T order above a 2 heat level. Don't order the bigogi (sp) its the only thing there I hate. The Cashew Nut chicken or the Bi Bim Bop is amazing. The soups are awesome. THIS ISN'T YOU NORMAL CHINESE RESTAURANT!!!! This is like a taste of asia where you can order Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian and more. And the price is great one dish really equals almost two meals!!

“Yum!”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

I was hesitant to try this place as it is right next to an adult video store and it looked a little seedy from the outside. Glad my husband and i took a chance. The bi bim bop is awesome. Warning though for those who cannot handle spice let them know. Even a 1 or 2 hot rating is super hot. They will be glad to fix with "no" spice. Stay away from the Bulgogi it was not authentic or very tasty. There is typically one little lady there that serves and she will gladly fill you in on all the dishes.
