Went here for a date night with my husband and what an experience. I enjoyed the private feel of the table - like we were in our own little portion of a cave (a little weird I know, but since I like to be cozy- this appealed to me). Don't go in your best wear- because it's smoky and you'll... More

I was at a seminar nearby and found this place on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. From its humble appearance outside, I would have easily missed it. But inside, while not overly fancy, waited an amazing dining experience. RJ, our server, was attentive but not pushy, and quick to answer any questions we had. We had the Kopdal BiBimBop... More

Food was great. Service was attentive. They did a lot to make it a family friendly experience. They brought a juice box and paper plate for the baby, so we could give her food from our plates without worrying about broken dishes. At the end of the meal, they brought stuffed animals for both kids to take home.

First off, the service was great!! Both the lady and gentleman that served us were extremely nice. They even gave us a teddy bear and ice cream after our meal, and walked us out the door when we left. Second, the food was delicious! They had one of the best galbi short ribs I've had at a Korean BBQ restaurant.... More

We both ate one of their lunch specials (Beef Bulgogi) so we did not do our own tabletop grilling. The entrees came with miso soup, rice and six Korean side dishes like kimchi and spicy spinach. We both thought the food was tasty and enjoyable. At the end, we were each given a Klondike ice-cream bar, 100% gratis. We'd like... More

We just arrived in Chicago from Seattle and decided to grab some BiBimBap. I just ran into the best stone pot BiBimBap I've had in the USA. The taste was absolutely extraordinary! The side dishes made with the same high quality standards as the entree. The big surprise is the amazingly warm the staff and delightful and fun interior. At... More

We love Korean food. I have been to many places and this is the best! The staff is wonderful, the food delicious and a nice ambiance. They are known for their short ribs. I love their bibimbop in a hot bowl. All of the sides are delicious. I am not Korean and they are so welcoming. You will see many... More

After reading the reviews we thought that we would give Chungkiwa a try. My husband was stationed in Korea for a couple of years and he has been introducing me to Korean food. Honestly, his cooking is far better than anything we got here. The Bulgoki was tough and chewy, flavorless with no spice or heat at all. My husband... More
