One of the finest Korean restaurants in the Chicago area. Superb service, even advice from the owner as to how one should cut noodles. Reasonable prices and a pleasant ambiance.

Not Impressed by Food Nor Service. Been to far better Korean Restaurants. Food was just ok; quite pricey, and we felt the service was regrettably "discriminatory" including less variety of Panchans, apparently we are not Korean. The latter, I simply don't stand for, and therefore would not recommend nor return.

Another exciting adventure into the world of Korean barbecue! This place is definitely an authentic hole-in-the wall, hard to find as the sign is in Korean. It's right across from the Dominick's in a tiny strip mall, the only identifier in English is "Korean Restaurant," so there you go. There are only about 10 tables, and it was pretty warm... More

We tried Da Rae this weekend but were not impressed. It is a good Korean restaurant but being the first time there, the menu can probably be rewritten so it does not give you the impression that its main offerings are just a bunch of soups. We ordered what was called BBQ Soup which later I realized was really just... More

We came here to have the blue crab marinade and it was pretty good. Slightly over-priced but hard to find otherwise. Their bibim nang myun was pretty good as well. Decent Korean food but average atmosphere.

Being Korean I was pleasantly surprised to have such great service (I pretty much assume I'll be treated rudely since I don't speak Korean). Restaurant is run by a husband/wife team with the wife running the kitchen and the husband the front of the house. He's very sweet and has an irresistible smile on his face. The restaurant is very...

This place has renewed our faith in Korean food (after not enjoying previous attempts at eating it). It's not much to look at, and there's no "fire on the table", but the owner seems to be the nicest guy on Lincoln Ave and everything we tried was so tasty. I don't think I have much more to add, but our... More
