Servers there sometimes have a hard time listening to what I ordered. I always need to confirm with them if they heard me correctly. And many times, their tone were pretty harsh. Server are not attentive at all. They would rather talking at the back, instead of checking customers to see if they need anything, Many times you need to... More

We were first served small appetiser dishes of kimchi (nice and strong), pickles, seaweed... Many of their main dishes come with a hot tofu soup served in a heat retaining, heavy container. The dishes themselves have various combinations of meat, veg ,tofu, rice or noodle, spicy or subtle, but authentic tasting, well balanced and DELICIOUS! They also offer 'japchae', which... More

Had lunch/dinner several times there and each time food was delicious. They have the best jjigae ( tofu, kimchi, soy paste) also great squid salad. I love the ajhummas who serve, very genuine. Busy at rush hours which speak for itself. Highly recommended!

I ate here recently and was blown away by the food. I've had Korean food before but this was probably the best that I have had yet. This place looks kind of run down on the outside but is very nice on the inside. The food was equally great with meat and soup combos that you can customize. The soup... More

I've been here a couple times but just went yesterday and was reminded of amazing it is! Most of the waitresses are Korean, so the menu has pictures you can point to as well as on the wall so that is super helpful. Truly authentic with the snacks beforehand kimchi, potato, seaweed and radish. Can get refills on these snacks... More

Came on a friday night and the restaurant was busy. We had a group of 7 people and the server gave us only 2 menus. I guess she expected us to share the 2 menus among our group even though I could see extra menus up in front. The server also tried to seat our group in a smaller table... More

This was our place for lunch the last day of a mini-trip and stay in the neighbourhood recently. A restaurant we've often wanted to try, and finally, had the opportunity to do so. We checked out of our hotel, met up with daughter (our 'limo' driver to get home!!), and just walked across the street. It opens at 11am, and... More
