This is by far one of my favorite restaurant experiences ever! 100% recommend for anyone. It may be a little pricey but there is enough food to make into two meals or split with someone. The manager is the most adorable person and is so...More

If you like Asian food, O Cafe is a must! Quaint decor....like being at your Asian grandmothers house. The chef/owner greeted and seated us. Free fresh Kim chi was our first course. We tried the beef bulgogi, japchae, kimbap, bibimbap and mandoo. EVERYTHING tasted delicious,...More

This food reminded me of the food I ate when I was stationed over there 30 years ago! Had a chance to visit with one of the ladies who was from the same region. It was a quiet restaurant with authentic korean flavor.

One of my favorite restaurants in Lawrence! The experience from start (complimentary and unique kimchi) to finish (delicious meal) is perfect, and the owner might be the sweetest woman you'll ever meet. I highly recommend this restaurant for its amazing tastes, authenticity, and service.

First, free kimchi appetizers; not just regular cabbage kimchi but a rotating spread of other fermented goods like kkakdugi and danmuji. My favorite dish is japchae followed by bibimbap. The decor is weirdly Americana, but this is the second Korean restaurant in Lawrence that had...More

This place has a lot of things working against it. The location, in a small strip mall next to a nail salon, must make it hard to get a good clientele. The decoration is frightening, somewhere around a Kansas rustic, country, or just chintzy. And...More

Amazing food. I could eat soon dubu everyday for the rest of my life and be happy. Bibimbap is comes in stone bowl. Seafood pajeon is great. I don't even like seafood and I like it.

I don't normally think of little strip malls as having "go-to" places for tremendous food, but that is certainly the case with O Cafe. One problem that I will admit to is that IF the first thing I try off the menu is sublime, then...More
