Very nice little restaurant. We had the seafood hot pot which actually had fish and shellfish in it. and they adjusted the heat level on it for the seniors that we were with. The appetizers and the grilled meats were very tasty.

We just tried this place after a chef friend recommended it. Went for lunch. Bento box was amazing. Only $9.95 and came with SO much food. Fresh homemade dumplings, salad, miso soup, rice and I had Spicy Pork (DELICIOUS). Also came with kimchi and such condiments. Cheaper than fast food and the service was quick! We were in and out...

A snap decision to stop for dinner, as we drove past Duru Restaurant, turned out the best plan ever. We were lucky to get a table right away as the place was full and new people were entering every 15 minutes. While waiting for our food, we noticed how no diners were rushed at all and when they did leave,... More

This is a nice sized cozy restaurant. The food is not greasy or overly salty. You walk away feeling full but not sick and the price range is decent for most dishes. The staff here are friendly and helpful and always smiling. For Niagara, this is a good korean restaurant and I recommend it.

I've visited this restaurant about 10 times over the last few years, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the savoury flavours of all the dishes I tried. The beef bulgogi bento box is very good for lunch, and only costs $8.99. I would recommend the dinner for two with the pork tangsuyuk as one of the choices. I rated this restaurant excellent,...

Went for lunch with the family. Always consistent with reasonable lunch specials. Always friendly service although if busy could take a little longer. Worth the wait though. Four of us had lunch for 30 dollars, which is very reasonable for what you get.

This is our favorite Korean food restaurant in St.Catharines. The ownership of this restaurant has changed three times in 12 years but the quality has remained the same and the variety has improved with the last changed when they added the in-table burners so you can cook your own food.

Thank Tom M
