We were 13 for lunch and were concerned that there was just a single server for the entire restaurant during a busy Friday lunch. She took our orders promptly and we got our food very quickly, despite the large number of options on the menu. The tables have cook stations and the restaurant offers a number of meal options that... More

This is my favourite Korean restaurant in Ottawa of the three or four I've tried in the downtown core. I love the three-meat barbecue thing, and love the side dishes — especially the potato pancake. The meat (you cook your own barbecue) is really flavourful, and the side dishes are plentiful. It's not worth doing this on your own, but... More

The missus had a craving for Korean food and as this place was recommended by a colleague, we decided to check it out. Arriving at just before 6pm on a Friday night, the place was pretty quiet though by 6:30, tables were starting to fill up so I think depending on the night, reservations may be recommended. (By the time... More

Great variety of Korean and Japanese dishes on the menu. Had the tempura lunch box, which was filling and not too crazy expensive. Staff was busy with all the lunchtime customers but were pleasant and efficient.

Kimchi, LA Galby ribs, Bulgogi and the 30 piece sashimi is what we usually order. You have to ask separately for the ssamjang paste and the lettuce leafs for the bulgogi, but the flavor is quite good. We always enjoy it. Ask for refill of the kimchi if needed.

I love this place. We've been here for both lunch and dinner. While at dinner they offer a few more items (California roll, salmon sushi, jap chae (glass noodles), and bibimbap. You can't go wrong with either. The meats aren't the highest quality but are still very good (the kimchi is amazing). The service here depends on when you go.... More

I love the food and the experience. A lot of people think cooking your own food sucks, but wait until you try their Bulgogi. It's so good. Pair it with Bibimpap, a delicious rice dish served in a stone bowl topped with a fried egg. It goes with everything. The Korean pancakes- get a double order (the whole thing is... More

I had a blast here. We did the all you can eat Dinner BBQ for $22. Service was quick once you ordered. Food tasted great and it was so much fun cooking our own meat. It was a little smoky and afterwards the table was greasy. I appreciate my meat well done - but apparently we were 'burning it' according... More
