Our first time there. We had spring rolls, deep fried tofu, pan fried pork dumplings and wonton soup. Then spicy pork bulgogi. All of which were excellent. What a find!

This was only the second time I had food from this restaurant. I am not sure why, because it is such good food. I have decided after this most recent visit that I will be back more often to try more food from their menu. Everything I have had has been exquisit. Well done. Keep up the good work!

We always enjoy our meal here. It's easy for two of us to have a good meal for under $30. Vegetarians can eat here as well as meat eaters. Every time we come we say, "Why don't we come more often?"

Really cant believe it took so long to finally stop in and try this place. Absolutely fantastic. Very clean interior, great service and the food was great. Not a thing left on the plates or in the bowls; left feeling very full without breaking the bank either.

We didn't know what to expect when we got there but were very happy with what we found. It was very clean and a great introduction for us to Korean food. I got the beef tacos and wonton soup, while my wife got beef and rice dish (forgot the name). The prices were great and we would be happy to... More

Unsuspectingly stumbled into this lovely Korean restaurant which has fantastic Bibimbap in a hot stone bowl which keeps the meal hot for the entire eating duration. Peaceful ambience. Delicious food.

Mom and pop are cooking in the kitchen and number 1 son is the server. He was very polite and helpful. The food had wonderful and subtle flavours. The prices are very reasonable. When I say 'cheap eats' I mean high quality cooking at a reasonable price. If I lived in Kelowna I would be a regular customer and will... More

The food was good albeit a hair on the spicy side but I suppose that's because you're getting seafood inland. Not phenomenal but no complaints either. Service was very friendly and courteous. I would come back .
