I came here because of the reviews. Had the spicy squid - not bad. All you can eat kimchi and water. Service was quick.

First time I went here I bought spicy pork and I really loved it. I ended up going back 2 times more! The food is amazing, highly recommend spicy pork/chicken. It's cheap and you get loads of food!
