“A treat on a rainy night.”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

My daughter spent time in Korea and we are always on the hunt for good Korean food. We found it!

This place has authentic rice bowls and table barbecue sufficient to make anyone happy. We couldn't help but notice we were the only non-Asians in the place. Maybe more Americans are not as comfortable with Korean as Japanese and Chinese, but this food is very good.

As with Korean, you must watch how spicy things are - and I can tolerate no spice at all - and had to caution them to not spice some things...or I just passed on some of the items served. The miso was good as were the rice bowls. I am a brown rice fan and I was happy to find it here. We also had some sushi, also very good. It was worth ruining a pair of shoes to get to - on a rain soaked night. Perfect place. Just perfect.
